    Set in Victorian England, this gothic-influenced novel follows Shannon Aimee, a young peasant woman from Huguenot-influenced Scotland. She is entirely content with her rather simple life, but exciting news arrivesthe Earl of Northon, an English nobleman, seeks her hand in marriage. But the Earl appears to be anything but noble. His manor in Northern England, Gatehaven, has long been plagued by stories of the occult, mystical practices, and tales of intrigue. Fearing for her safety, Shannon's childhood sweetheart Ian Colquhoun, a young man with dreams of becoming a pastor, covertly escorts her to England. All appears well, and the innocent Shannon has few doubts that the Earl truly loves her. However, the Earl, and a mysterious Frenchman with unexpected ties to Shannon, have their own motives for seeking her out.
    Written in the same dark style as classic gothic novels like Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre, Gatehaven is a satisfying Christian book which fits perfectly into its Victorian background, bringing along a more readable 21st-century style of English. It preserves many of the themes, mysteries, and vile villains of traditional gothic literature while introducing strong Christian values and characters. While it does not replace the essence of classics like Wuthering Heights completely, this is both a viable contemporary Christian replacement for teaching gothic literature and a good gothic novel in its own right. ~ Stephen

    So you've read The Well-Trained Mind by Susan Wise-Bauer and you're pleased by its information, guidance and practical curriculum suggestions. However, while reading it you may have thought, "I wish I had been educated this way, I guess it's too late for me." In the Well-Educated Mind, Susan focuses on the adult, and her premise is that it's not too late; you can have a Well-Educated Mind. Susan's focus is on helping the adult learn to read great literature. This book is so much more than a list of suggested reading. In fact, the suggested reading doesn't come until after Susan presents significant information on why it's important and how to go about it.

    Yes, the trivium - grammar, logic and rhetoric is presented as well. Would you expect anything less from this author? Susan discusses why it is important for children to be taught properly in all three stages and if you were not, how as an adult, you can compensate and learn to read great literature. Susan's goal is to equip her readers to be able to learn self-education to train and fill their minds.

    For people who question their ability to read difficult material, the book states, "If you can understand a daily newspaper, there's no reason you can't read and enjoy Shakespeare's sonnets or Jane Eyre." Susan says, "Reading is a discipline, like running regularly, or meditating, or taking voice lessons." Just like working through a training regimen to become proficient in sports or music we must learn technique and train our minds to effectively tackle the great books.

    Susan does not lecture from an ivory tower, but shows she can relate her understanding of real-life challenges to making time for the pursuit of reading. Her references to her struggles help make me feel like she understands real-life. These include the lure of TV after a long day, "just to vegetate for a few minutes, before I try to use my brain," or the call of email (including spam deletion). She includes a whole section on how to create a realistic reading schedule on your weekly calendar. A helpful section is including on training our minds to move from light reading and skimming for facts to more serious reading which leads to understanding. This "how-to" section includes information on reading mechanics, journaling, questioning and literary terms, all with examples. The book then progresses to six literary genres: fiction, autobiography, history, drama, poetry, and science with instructions on how to read each type. After each genre is a listing of literature with comprehensive summaries and the best versions of the books (with ISBN information). This new expanded and revised edition includes great 21st century works as well as essential readings in science. The selected reading lists usually have both a literary and a historical purpose. The Well-Educated Mind is a great resource that provides those adults who have a nagging sense of missing something in their literary education the practical techniques and guidance to regularly read and enjoy great literature.
