This book being in the genre of "light and easy" chick lit, is trying to do too much outside of its scope. The author tries to impart tangential and inconsequential knowledge on music and appreciation of music through the hero, and of jewellery making and rare gem stones through the heroine. The history of a rare gem stone called tanzanite is repeated in multiple places in the book. The heroine is even named Petra (Greek for "stone") Flint (stone again!). The style is not the easy flowing style I have come to expect of this kind of book - the sentences and analogies too contrived for my liking.Read more ›
North of London on the moors of Yorkshire finds Arlo Savidge, teacher at Roseberry Hall, a school for boys. He has been hiding away behind the school's great gates and trying desperately to forget something terrible from his past. For the past five years, since he was last in a relationship with his fiance Helen and since the tragedy that he refuses to speak of occured, he has sworn off women to keep the feelings of love far away. If the feelings of love and passion are kept hidden, the grieving and guilt cannot find him. His body refuses to let him off the hook fully, however, and he finds himself an insomniac. While he makes friends with his coworkers at the school he never truly lets anyone into his heart and feels quite satisfied just being a teacher of music, his great passion.
These two people, living very different lives, are connected delicately by a shared history going back seventeen years to when they were both in school.Read more ›
The author Freya North describes admirably the contemporary London and lifestyles as well as the emotions flying between these two adults.
I would recommend this book to all romance hungry readers. The book does not have a fast pace and therefore, if you are looking for a quick action then this is not the right book for you.
There were a few things that weren't necessarily bad about the book but still had me doing a bit of a double take. For instance (and I'll try not to give away too much), I was way confused about the thing that is keeping Petra sleepwalking. It seemed to come out of nowhere and was just really weird and almost out of place.
One thing that I really liked about the book was North's writing. She has a very quick wit and the ability to make me laugh (or rather chortle) out loud. The book is definitely quirky and not your run of the mill romance, which I definitely appreciated. I kind of found myself wondering what happened to Petra and Arlo once the book ended. I think that if you find yourself wondering about the characters after the book ends, it means the characters were pretty awesome.
Bottom line: Want quirky romance? Here's your book!
