She keeps making really bratty, really bad decisions. She’s a prima ballerina who got into the sack with her lead, he then moved on to others. She’s not eating, she’s severely depressed, and yet two people are looking out for her. Once in the cottage her psychiatrist brother tries to help her, but she shuts him out, over and over, while seeing visions, living in the past, coming to understand who she is, what happened in her family, and why there has always been curse following her life.
This is so very real, the throwbacks put you firmly in the past and are so depressing that it was almost oppressive. Jenna has a severe case of Narcissistic Personality Disorder, that means despite CRAVING love, needing it like other people need air, she pushes the people who love her away by being cruel and nasty. She’s cutting and horrid and I could never feel sorry for her because everything she suffers emotionally she invited into her life. This book would make an incredible work book for therapists studying for their Phd, because it really does nail how narcissists sabotage their health, their relationships, and their own happiness. They want to be loved warts and all but do nothing whatsoever to earn this gift. Love is a gift, often given via family because you’re raised to love your family, but eventually if your family do nothing but hurt you, what do you do? This chick needs the mental hospital she went to, she needs the monitoring, she’s a danger to herself and others, and I thought Vincent was crazy to put up with her nonsense. She is so selfish and self absorbed that I wanted to thump her, repeatedly and often. She is not a nice character, at all, so if you were hoping to bond with her, good luck. But that’s emotive writing, if you love or hate a character the author has succeeded in moving you, so again this book gets top stars for being REAL.
Yet the actual story of the past, the mystery unveiling, it kept me riveted, I kept reading because it goes from awful to horrendous, the secrets in this family are so many shades of black that there is no light. This is a very dark book despite the welcoming cover. Once you enter this downward spiral you won’t be coming back up until the end. Don’t read it if you’re going through a depression. But if you love dark books full of intrigue, this one is for you. This is drama, it’s broken and shattered and fractured and mean, and so very well written that I’m amazed that English isn’t the author’s first language. Well done indeed!
In Cottage on the Border, Jenna is a successful dancer who embodies duende. She is a master of the mixture between physical expression and emotional connection with music. Jenna's poor health habits catch up with her early in the book and she is hospitalized. Her hospitalization culminates her career.
In this hard time, Jenna reaches out to her brother for help. Vincent will always help his family first and comes to Jenna’s aid. Together, they begin work on Jenna’s healing path. Vincent's roles as professional and brother are one of the secondary themes and is one key to understanding Jenna.
After small successes, Jenna discovers she has an incredible gift along with a family history that is much closer than she previously believed. Jenna wants to continue working through her struggles and demands (as is her nature) that she be left alone to do so. She and Vincent work on a method so she will be successful then it is Jenna and her ghosts.
With her piles of blonde hair and violet eyes, she dives into her treasure trove of history, alone.
The Cottage on the Border delves into the full character of flawed humanity. I found myself cheering all the characters, which speaks to the depth of Warren’s character development. History and morality would dictate that I should not sympathize with people who have done such horrid things. This is a testament to Warren’s writing style. Her additional sheer genius in allowing us to travel with Jenna in all her discoveries is what made this a mouth-watering read for me. Like Jenna, I couldn’t stop.
Reading The Cottage on the Border is a great experience. I simply cannot wait to read the other two books in this series. Jenna is addicting, her struggle is superhuman and I need to know how it turns out. A solid five stars.
