The pacing is great, the characters well fleshed out and the dialogue true to the period. Several times I find myself mouthing some of the conversations to see how it rolled off my tongue. That there was strong love and respect in the relationships between the characters are very evident, despite the sometime grumpy tone of Elizabeth. Also, Will’s love for his grandson is beautifully conveyed in the easy going relationship between the two. They conversed like two men, and that set the tone of the book for me. Great read!
The author has brought alive 1900s in detail, right from the descriptions to the way the characters speak, adding a lot of depth and background to the story. A very well written tale.
The stories are very much character driven with individual tales about a local population, how they feel, think and behave. This was so well written, I felt invested in the protagonists and their lives. Some were likeable, others made me shake my head at their hypocrisies, but all kept me fully engaged.
If you're looking for a historical romance, mystery, and of good solid writing, look no further. 5 stars.
The story is perfect for the time frame,, the setting was described wonderfully, but my favorite part---the characters! To me, they totally make a story worthwhile. From the good, to the bad, and even to the romantic love interest, this book was sensational. I'm happy I stumbled across it on Amazon!! I don't want to give away plot details, but I recommend checking this out!
From the very first pages I felt very attached to the characters and it’s definitely a sign of very good writing. Penny’s story was so touching and heartbreaking, but I admired her willpower not to give up on her search of her birthmother no matter what. Will and Laurel were my favorites since their first meeting, and in spite of all the circumstances I couldn’t help but root for their future.
I also appreciated how the town people were portrayed, and how the “pious” ones turned out to be the most unforgiving and cruel in their judgements, and the “outcasts” – Laurel is the most obvious example – displayed the biggest heart and sympathy even towards the ones who snubbed them.
Highly recommended for all lovers of historical fiction!
Two of the characters were appealing the actual daughter,and the abused husband. The journalist was mostly self involved and behaving poorly.
Trying to write about a dark era,during a current dark era is a challenge I would not want.
