It was an warm story, well covered with words. Strong characters, beautiful scenery, not even a moment where you can let the book out of your hands. When I started to read I was expecting something different, but the surprise that followed made it worth. For Calvin and Jane may be considered a tough experience but the final of the story let them see the value of the true love and push them toward each other despite the insecurities on one side or the other.
After seeing Carrie being borrowed and sold for the price of her love, the final word, "Amateur" , lover, like the author said tells the truth over the all story. Because, sacrificing her body through the desire to please and to be loved, Carrie had the courage to think at herself, accepting that she deserve better, for God's sake. Being an avid reader of this type of books, liking the best Annabel Joseph and her talent to make you feel actually the whip on your skin, you can understand why I find Molly Weatherfield a precious writer as long as her message to us is very well dressed in words, and the story-line is an original one, too.
You want the truth? I find Mary Balogh a very gifted writer. As a matter of fact, I love all her books. Huxtable Family is an inspirational saga, following love through all this great family members. Every time on the edge, and every time saved by the most exciting feeling in the world.
In the first place, is the plot, the story line, an original one, after that it is the construction of characters, Gisele, James, Sebastian, Adam, the magic of historical events, the description and the details of an era unknown for all of us. Beautifully conceived with a great outcome.
First, I loved the story. Well conceived and well written. Second, the characters. The courageous and untamed Olivia and her future husband, Alastair, defeated by the betrayal and death of his beautiful wife, Margaret. The beauty of a book like this is that is quite just as the life is: you never know what to expect at the next corner...
