A must read! Once you've read one of this author's books you'll want to read them all!
FALLING FOR THE DEVIL is vintage Holmstrom: the history is well-researched, the settings impeccably described but it is the characters and their predicaments that draw readers in, the devotion the author lavishes on constructing sentences of grace and consummate artistry. A writer of historical fiction must serve two masters, history and literature, and Ms. Holmstrom accomplishes this balancing act with admirable skill and dexterity.
One of the finest writers in Canada, Britt Holmstrom has consistently refused to conform to the marketplace or pander to the poobahs of Can-Lit. She has stubbornly gone her own way and, in the process, created a body of work that is the envy of her fellow scribes.
was delighted to find this one as an e-book! A departure from her usual
genre and style, "Falling for the Devil" is immensely rich and satisfying
in a completely new way. The author evokes the atmosphere of early 17th C
Scotland through historical events and authentic dialogue and descriptions
of period life among the classes. Simultaneously, she weaves a story of
relationships and family that draws the reader into the lives of the characters.
I found myself holding my breath at points, weeping at others, and waiting anxiously
for resolution,if not redemption, by the end. Holmstrom possesses her own inimitable style,
and I look forward to her next book. Read this book. You will not be disappointed.
