Ruth Nichols (Author). When I recently stumbled on "The Marrow of the World," I expected it to be an even more wonderful tale, anticipating that, in the intervening years, Nichols had further developed as a storyteller and a writer.

Ruth Nichols (Author). I was more than sadly disappointed. A Walk Out of the World" is a complete, original fairytale in the spirit of questing tales where "good" triumphs over "evil. Though "The Marrow of the World" attempts the same, it succumbs to a trite, undeveloped, predictable, and facile storyline that leaves the reader feeling confused and cheated.

First tell us your own. I was sure he would show up later, but it was still annoying how he was left behind. She used to let Philip take the blame any time they got in trouble. Ygerna sends the children on a dangerous quest for The Marrow of the World, which is deep within the dwarfs' mountain stronghold. Great danger and personal growth are in store for the two cousins as they go after the marrow and try to return home. Much better than Nichols other adventure novel, A Walk out of the World, but still a little lacking in resonance.

I have loved "A Walk Out of the World" for decades, having first read it in the early '80's. When I recently stumbled on "The Marrow of the World," I expected it to be an even more wonderful tale, anticipating that, in the intervening years, Nichols had further developed as a storyteller and a writer. I was more than sadly disappointed. "A Walk Out of the World" is a complete, original fairytale in the spirit of questing tales where "good" triumphs over "evil." Though "The Marrow of the World" attempts the same, it succumbs to a trite, undeveloped, predictable, and facile storyline that leaves the reader feeling confused and cheated. Whether due to undeveloped writing, or heavy-handed editing, the distinct impression is that most of the story is missing. And what is there, offers nothing in the way of depth, and little in the way of innovation. It is possible that I might have thought more highly of the book had I not read "A Walk Out of the World" first. As it is, I am giving the author the benefit of the doubt with two stars.

While Phillip and his adopted cousin, Linda, are rowing their boat across the lake where they are vacationing for the summer, they see something impossible. A castle is sunk in the water that no one else can see, and which vanishes when they dive to investigate. When they return during the night to investigate further, their boat is seized by unknown forces and propelled up a river into another world.
There the two children meet Herne, a woodsman who tells them the story of the battle between the good king Kyril Tessarion, and the evil witch, Morgan. An unseen power separates them from Herne, and the children find themselves in the clutches of the witch Ygerna, daughter of Morgan, who claims Linda is really from this world, the last daughter of the witch Morgan.
Ygerna sends the children on a dangerous quest for The Marrow of the World, which is deep within the dwarfs' mountain stronghold. Great danger and personal growth are in store for the two cousins as they go after the marrow and try to return home. Much better than Nichols other adventure novel, A Walk out of the World, but still a little lacking in resonance.
