Keturah and Lord Death, Martine Leavitt I was sixteen years old the day I was lost in the forest, sixteen the day I met my death.

Keturah and Lord Death, Martine Leavitt. 1st ed. p. cm. Summary: When sixteen-year-old Keturah follows a legendary hart into. Lord Temsland’s forest she becomes lost, and eventually Lord Death. I was sixteen years old the day I was lost in the forest, sixteen the day I met my death. I saw that he was a sixth-year hart at least, and I would have run at the sight of his antlers, spread like a young tree, had I not been entranced by his beauty.

I said quietly, my voice completely lost in the hubbub. John, said John glumly to the table. John, sir, forgive me if I remind you that you were so gracious as to grant me an interview. he said distractedly. I have not forgotten. I will send Henry for you. Soon. It is of the greatest importance. It has to do with the safety of the village. That sounds very important indeed, he said. But I could plainly see that he felt that nothing could be as important as what the messenger had just announced. Why shouldn’t I boast?

Lovely story it was. A bit cheesy, but that sort of things are forgivable in Fairy Tales and the story was undeniably more Fairy Tale than Fantasy. The story had quite a simple plot: a girl brushes with Death and gets the opportunity to learn the true meaning of Life.
Keturah’s story is a perfect read to cheer your up. I read it while I was very ill and it definitely helped to feel better. There is something charming how everybody get their HEA in the end of the story.
All the characters in the story are very nice, all of them very caring and kind. Especially Keturah herself.
I only wish there were more Romance in the book. I hoped that it will have the ending that the story had, I was afraid she will choose Lord’s son instead of Lord Death… I was so glad she didn’t, but then it quite obvious from the title. I really realy love dark, brooding love interest. I think the ending was perfect and very romantic, especially the bit about Grandmother. But I wish the falling in love was a bit more developed, it felt somewhat out of nowhere. I think their interaction needed a bit more page time. But I can’t explain how happy I was for the love interest, and well for everybody.

This one kept me up well into the night, wondering how it was going to end (which says it all right there, really--any book that I can't quite see where the ending is going until the last few pages is a keeper in my book). Not that this is a mystery story in ANY way; the cover, the synopsis, the title...it's all right there, folks. But author Leavitt did such a wonderful job weaving Keturah's love of life vs. her newfound appreciation of the role of Death that I did feel for a while that her ultimate romantic choice could go either way ("life" hero vs. Lord Death). The villagers were winsomely depicted, with names like "Tailor" and "Choirmaster" that reminded me just a bit of Rose Daughter by Robin McKinley--another point that did this book no harm in my eyes.

3.5 stars.

The story is beautifully written, but I felt there was a lack of detail that I prefer in a story, and things that should have taken a lot longer seemed to be instantly known by everyone in town and resolved as if weeks rather than hours had passed. I also wasn't satisfied by where the book ended; I was left with a lot of questions on what would happen next and where/when exactly the story was being told from.

Well, we have a young woman in a remote, rundown town drawn to a gorgeous but cruel immortal. She is special in ways she can't comprehend, but everyone around her seems to see that she's marked somehow. She must choose between living with those she knows and loves and the everlasting undead existence he offers. His kisses are cold, his allure exquisite, her heart torn. Sound familiar?

Well, this book is quite a bit better, I promise. For one thing, it's the middle ages, and it's England, not Washington state, and Lord Death is much more compelling than that other guy. He's just as beautiful, just as proud, just as sad. But much better-written.

This is an utterly charming book. While it's full of magic, it's also full of charming domestic details of the Middle Ages--the storage of spoons, the taking of stitches, the pigs and fences and witches and charms and proud farmers. People have surnames like Teacup and Thermidor, a winsome touch. The great threat that looms over Keturah's beloved village is the Plague, but that doesn't stop her friends from their amusing pursuit of true love. In this way, the book excels, looking at men and women, the differences and obstacles between them, what makes a good match. I was delighted by the side stories of Keturah's friends, and the active role she took in making things come out right.

When it comes to Keturah, I was heartened by her resourcefulness, her sexual curiosity (this story is chaste, there is nothing overt but she's a real girl with real feelings), her domestic longings and her acceptance that she will have to make painful sacrifices to have what she wants most. Never does this girl stomp her foot and say "It's not fair!" and I can't tell you how much I appreciated this.

Looking at her final choice, it's a poetic, beautiful consideration of the role of dying in living. Her awareness of Death's role in the sweetness of life is heartrending and to me, quite convincing.
