My Friday 56 this week is once again from the book I am currently reading. Castle In The Air is the second book in a series by Diana Wynne Jones, which begins with much acclaimed book Howl’s Moving Castle. I first read Castle In The Air nearly twenty years ago now and it was actually the first book I ever read by Diana Wynne Jones.

After a fairly long pause, in which he swallowed hard and did his best to control his feelings, Abdullah said politely, “Tell me, oh relatives of my Father’s first wife, have you known of the prophecy which was made at my birth for a long time?”
