The hallmarks of the author's writing are her vivid descriptions of the environment, her well-developed lovable characters, and her style which just sweeps you along for the journey! She brings magic to life! In her stories, you feel along with the characters as they experience the joys, sorrows, humor, etc! While this is the most light-hearted of her books, it is still a wonderful read that STILL gives you food for thought! This story makes me wish I could see my guardian angel! :)
This is a story that gives you hope... and hoping for that happily ever after! So, what are you waiting for? Grab a copy and read it! You'll be so glad you did!
I was given an ARC, and I am voluntarily and happy to submit an honest review. I will also purchase a couple of copies for friends who need this lovely story in which to escape!
And all that happens on an enchanting Greek island where all senses are equally engaged, not least that of taste.
The Amulet is the story of a young, down-on-her luck girl who finds the perfect love in a too-perfect man who happens to be an angel on earth. How will the angel in his inexperienced human form remain on Earth to give Katie her happily ever after? The answer comes in a heart-rending, wonderful twist that made this book even more special to me.
Although Moschoudi’s Lady of The Pier trilogy was more the genre I usually prefer, as I continued to read The Amulet I became more and more captivated by it. This simple and entertaining love story was so much more. It was a lesson in humanity, love and compassion. The subtitle of the book says it’s an angel magic romantic comedy. If this is a hint that there will be more to come, I will be waiting to read the next one.
Without revealing much, one of the things I love about Moschoudi's works is her endings; full of hope and salvation even in the direst of circumstances. This is true here as well, somehow managing to offer the kind of closure I'd think impossible.
Another thing that is typically Moschoudi is the Greekness of her stories. Again, this is true here as well, and the brightness of a Greek island summer fills the Amulet's pages. I can't think of a better summer read, especially if you happen to be on one of the afore-mentioned islands.
I find Ms. Moschoudi’s description of the Greek Island, Sifnos, where The Amulet takes place to be one that made me want to visit Greece on the next available flight and perhaps join her characters in the quaint hotel on the beach.
Her descriptions are so vivid that you can feel the wind in your hair, the sunshine on your face, and the sand beneath your feet. I felt as if I walked into a painting that came alive. As with all of her books, we are given a gift of magical moments woven with happy tears and glorious smiles.
