Book 3 of 5. Charles de Lint was born in in Bussumthe Netherlands, and his family emigrated to Canada when he was four months old.

It is involved and profound and fascinating and nostalgic and enrapturing and was just the perfect thing for me just right now. Ottawa, to be precise. Rather it encompassed the grand stories that caused some change in the world and were remembered in ensuing years as, if not histories, at least folktales and myths. Charles de Lint [1] [2] [3] born December 22, is a Canadian writer of Dutch origins. University of Ottawa Press, De Lint successfully captures your imagination in Dreams Underfoot and for a moment, you will find yourself caught up in an illusory world almost believing the existence of the supernatural powers in real life as the main characters in the book move from one scene to another.


The characters are well-developed and the Otherworld that they enter is very romantic and captivating. Compared to the other characters, however, she seems to have the least amount of page-time where she actually does something—there is a lot of waiting and complaining going on.
