SECRET OF THE LAUREL CROWN

by Andrea MacVicar




 THE BOOK $15

THE CD $5


The note on the old shoebox read: "Carolyn, I bought this at a garage sale. I know how tough life has been for you these past months. I thought this might help a sad girl smile. Love, Gram." Carolyn lifted the lid and dumped its contents. Five hundred pieces of the jigsaw puzzle tumbled out onto the worn yellow wool blanket. As she pushed the pieces aside, a folded parchment—its edges ragged with age—caught in a small hole.                  

 A sequel to this very popular book will soon be out.

BOOK REVIEWS

"Andrea MacVicar's Secret of the Laurel Crown is a must read. It's a story that can be appreciated on many levels and by young and old. I really enjoyed how she develops her characters, how well she weaves a story and how beautifully she paints pictures with words. A film should be made of this book!" Ingrid

"Secret of the Laurel Crown is a gripping story from beginning to end. It packs a powerful punch as the author's characters come to life with a message of hope and love as well as good triumphing over evil.

It is an amazing book, targeted to young teens, but I loved it, and I'm a lot older than a teenager! Couldn't put it down!" Emma

"I think that Secret of the Laurel Crown is awesome because it included supernatural things and what might happen in the future.  I also loved the book because it includes animals and keeps you a little on edge on what might happen next." Trinity age 11.

"This book was an exciting read. The descriptions of the scenes were awesome. So colorful. And the characters are beautifully developed and you feel like you know them so well. It would be great to have a sequel to this book. Wonderful read!!!" Judi

"This is an amazing novel by a very gifted storyteller.You find yourself instantly swept up in this adventurous tale as if you've stepped into another world.A book that you can't easily put down...
Well done Andrea!!" Diane

"Just a note to let you know how much I enjoyed "Secret...."  When I left to go up north for a family visit I picked it from my growing stack of unread books as airport reading.  (Currently the only time I seem to have to indulge in such enjoyment).I was prompted to stay up my first night and finish to the end - and believe me I was tired.  I am always amazed at the immagination it takes to construct not only a story line but in this case an alternative world. Thanks for the enjoyment!" Karen

   TALES OF ZOFTIC
             by Andrea MacVicar

"This is not only a great book for reading aloud as the  poetic quality of the lines becomes musical, but is replete with  new vocabulary:  murky, bliss, commiserate, jaunt, din, eject, obligation, prancing, perpetrators, enchanted, extravagance. Your child will love this book." Donna Bruno, Book Reviewer

 
"This is a warm and wonderful book that will steal your heart! Zoftic (a black Labrador) has wonderful adventures with his pals and his master, and it is amazing that it is all written in rhyme.  Whether you are a reader or listener this book will make you laugh and cry.  A great book for parents to read with their children for both to enjoy." Emma

"Rich in vocabulary." Debbie; Media Specialist Middle School

"The story is charming and uniquely told in rhyme which is difficult to do without sounding forced." Janeen

"It is a real sweet story about family love and a loving pet.  I initially thought that it would be kind of cheesy to write a full book in rhyme, but I was really impressed." Karen

PIECES OF STAINED GLASS
       by Andrea MacVicar


A book of poetry.

I've always wanted to touch lives with words. To me, touching and words are synonymous. Spoken and written words can wound what a loving human touch can heal. And human hands can wound what a loving spoken and written word might also heal.

Entry Title PIECES OF STAINED GLASS

Author: Andrea MacVicar

Judge Number: 95

Entry Category: Poetry

Judge’s Commentary*:

"In Pieces of Stained Glass by Andrea MacVicar, we are presented with poems that are full of faith and hope in the face of a changing world, one which we strive to endure while still wringing some beauty and brilliance from it. Overall, the writing is delicate and graceful, using sound and form as a way of helping the reader through the struggle that is often evoked here. The title seems to this reader to be appropriate and evocative, giving the reader a good sense of the tone of the poems to come. The overall design of the book is professional, though I would have preferred to see a difference in font types between the poem text and title so as to make a broader distinction to the eye. The cover image for the book is interesting and stark in its beauty, inviting. The book is broken into sections which help the reader to navigate the different themes and approaches that the poems encourage. A poem like “The Tunnel” shows the range of this collection in lines like “that long as light breaks black / the end is near,” that reminds us that sound can be the key to the understanding we seek."

 

"Andrea MacVicar writes beautifully. Her poems are thought provoking, engaging, playful and funny. I was inspired by her poetry.  It was a joy to read her poems and it was even greater to read them aloud." Ingrid
