    What do I say about this book? I love it so much. I have read it multiple times and would read it again if my library hadn't somehow lost it and it was out of print (I am trying to get a hold of a copy!) The characters are vital and the stories are magical. Kaela weaves a tale like Scherhazade, with majesty and magic. Her stories are powerful and alive. When Kaela runs away from her country she must make her own way. She cannot tell anyone she is a princess, and thus the natural respect and assi [...]

    I re-read this beloved book of my childhood for the first time in a long time. The writing is not as skillful as some of my newer favorites, but I'm not going to knock a star off for that because for me, what makes this book five-stars is the fact that it stayed with me for so many years. I was probably 13 when I first read it. I got it from the library, and for years every time I returned to the library I would take it down and read my favorite parts again. I lost track of the number of times I [...]

    This was one of those (somewhat rare) books where the characters tell a lot of stories, but I didn't get bored with the stories-within-a-story. In fact, some of the mini-stories were better than the main one. My favorite one was the one with the troupe of actors, and the actress who befriends the prince. But I'm an actress, so I can't help it. I thought the beginning of the book was too simplistic and/or not super believable. But whatever. I enjoyed the book overall. Though I'll admit that a few [...]

    I absolutely LOVE Beth Hilgartner's writing. It is beautiful, facinating draws the reader in and wraps around them like a friend. Yet, I often struggle with her plots. "A Necklace of Fallen Stars" is no different. The plot is overly dramatic, every character is super-good unless they are bad, in which case they are super evil. I did enjoy how 'short stories' that were woven in. It was a good book, not amazing, most noteworthy for its writing style

    Recommended to me by a friend who remembers it from when he read it very young. This is really gorgeous, a lovely story within a story, and fast read, for upper elementary and beyond. Unfortunately it is a little hard to find, but I got it through inter-library loan and hopefully you can too. Copies can be found to by used, though if you are so inclined I am!


  • Carolyn

    Very fun to read, especially when Kaela tells a tale. This author is very good with the creation of stories inside of stories. The ending is so romantic, but so classical. I would suggest this book to fairy-tale lovers and romantisists.

    Highly recommend this book! Wish it was still in print!
