This was a captivating and thought-provoking read that had me immersed from the beginning. The story flowed from scene to scene with ease, and the author shows exceptional ability when it comes to storytelling. I enjoyed the story, character development, and dialogue. It’s been a while since I enjoyed a book this much.
This for me was a phenomenal read. It was one of those books that stayed with me for several days after I finished reading. The vivid descriptions of the settings, situations, and the people were stunning and realistic. It’s one of those stories that come along occasionally that makes you want to read it non-stop until you get to the end. I’m giving nothing further away here. And this, I hope, will only add to the mystery and enjoyment for the reader.
I’ll be looking forward to reading more from Blair Bronwyn in the future. I would highly recommend this book and add that it has a distinctly cinematic feel to it. A well-deserved five stars from me.
I found this novel to be very well written and the characters to be developed nicely. The setting for the story works very well for the type of story this is and I think the readers will enjoy the way the author incorporated so much of history into the novel. I found Lucille to be both respectable and disappointing at the same time. You can't help but understand where she is coming from and why she is doing her deeds, but at the same time the reader wants her to be the mother she should be rather than push her daughter away. Anyone who enjoys strong female leads or those interested in historical fiction will enjoy this read.
The plot is interesting as it has a little bit of everything: revenge, bravery, and adventure. Moreover, the story progresses naturally and smoothly.
I've long looked for an author that could consistently grab and hold my attention throughout an entire novel and I've definitely found one in Blair. When I first opened it, I thought I would not be able to keep the focus on its 369 pages but as soon as I started reading the first page, I could not stop. The story had me on edge all through and kept me motivated to finish reading it as soon as possible.
I only keep few books that I know I will read again. This is staying in my e-book since I am IN LOVE with it!
Bronwyn presents us with the story of Lucille, a woman born in an era when living as a woman was a lot more. She soon lost her job and at the same time, she figures out she is also pregnant.
She finds a better way to deal with the situation by disguising as a man to make little income to support her child. When she finally gave birth, it was clear she could not take care of herself and her child with her meager salary. She contemplates suicide before taking up the evening life as a way to cope.
She was able to cope with the bill. However, this new life had some negative implications on her relationship with her daughter. The forbidden woman is a good family read with a lot of lessons to learn about the time.
Forbidden Woman by Blair Bronwyn tells a fascinating story of how different types of women are forced to a dark world: lust out of basic needs, desire to feel wanted, or driven by family. This novel is revealing, raw, and mesmerizing. It preys on the heart of every woman knowing if we lived in a different time, family, or society; this could be our life’s story. You want to believe this is fiction, but this nightmare real to someone. When you look at a girl or woman who lives in this lifestyle, remember, she had dreams of grandeur, love, and security just like you do.

If, like me, you would not normally consider reading a family saga then I suggest you will be well rewarded if you put your bias aside and dive in.
