Esme Bohlin loses her father but discovers herself and finds love and comfort from her estranged mother's side of the family. While magic and fantasy may be the vehicle for the story, the greater message is that of a family's love and the struggle between right and wrong, good and evil.
The prose flows nicely, and the plot is well developed. I recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys this genre, or perhaps to those unsure (like me). I look forward to reading more of this fine author's work in the future!
When I started and up to about ¼ of the way in, I thought that it would be an interesting slant on things with all the stuff about magic being in Esme’s mind, and her in the normal world. I also thought that the writing was choppy in the begining and did not flow as well as later in the book. A first novel can be that way.
I am not a magic reader and only read part of one Harry Potter book to one of my children, the 3rd one I think. I was never called to read any more. I did like this book in spite of that since, it was adults in adult situations, not children in magicland Hogwarts. The bad guy was really a bad guy, not a cartoon Darth Vader or Voldermort. He was a developed character that was believably psychopathic. I also liked the fact that the book was written with a complete female protagonist that did not need to be rescued by a man or have a male lover to fight for her. She did it all herself.
If you are looking for a relaxing read that has a steady flow, knitted well together give My Father’s Magic a try. You might find you like it.
Ingrid Foster is a gifted storyteller with a style of writing that flows, and in my opinion, the type only possessed by the most talented of authors.
As My Father’s magic begins, a mystery starts to unfold that builds and builds until it reaches a crescendo of perfection in which everything you have been waiting to find out is disclosed, and all the loose ends suddenly come together, but there is evil at work and an entire village counting on Esme to destroy it before it destroys the town and everyone she loves. However, Esme is just learning about her magical powers and that creates a nail bitter as she goes against an entity of great strength. This is an enchanting, magical, and totally awesome story that I couldn’t wait to finish to find out how it ended
I felt like Alice falling further and further down the rabbit hole of magic and mystery. Whenever I thought I was starting to figure out where the story was going, it would take an unexpected twist. As the story unfolded, it became darker and more haunting, and I found myself thinking about the story even when I wasn’t reading it. I especially liked the character Esme. Her charisma, stamina, and flaws made her likeable and relatable. She was painted so vividly that I felt like I was watching her in a movie.
Ingrid is clearly a talented author. Her writing is succinct and thoughtful, accentuating this fantastical suspense story. Highly recommended!
