Martinusen Coloma,and I have not been disappointed
in any of them. As an author, she has such feeling
for the storyline and the characters. She has such
depth, I feel like I'm reading about real people.
Her descriptions are beautiful. I have written down
in a notebook many phrases she has used to describe
the character's feelings or the situation they may be
in. Many great authors have famous lines from their
books. I have found those in Cindy's books. I have
been truly inspired. She is an inspirational writer,
her faith is evident in her books. That should not
stop a person without Christian faith not to read her
books. She has a great knowledge of the landscape of
Europe and northern California, her home. Her first
three books are a trilogy connected only by an heir-
loom brooch but you gain a great deal of knowledge of
the World War II years that lead to the present day.
She has co-authored a new book just coming out that
I am anxious to begin. I want to find her part of
the book apart from her co-author.
"Eventide" is a story of a man and a woman whose desire to understand the past draws them in an ever-tightening circle toward a young woman on her deathbed. Carrie, the dying woman, is a former love of Graham, and the best friend of Lauren. Their attempts to unravel old mysteries drive wedges between them, while also offering chances to draw them closer than ever. Along the way, Carrie's adoring husband and likeable son are pulled in as well.
This is a story of haunting beauty, profound insight, and intrigue. While wearing certain colors of a mystery and a romance novel, it takes on hues all its own--hues that match Martinusen's ability with words. For those longing for rich stories and characters, look no further.
This mystery aspect of this book kept drawing me to it, and I think the plot was well-designed. However, I found this book to be depressing. Perhaps it was because the entire plot was based around the death of a woman. I would recommend this book to people who like mystery, but do not mind reading about death.
