I was enthralled with this book and the narrator did an excellent job. I loved how she was able to distinguish the characters with her voice. My favorite voice was Mac's.
The story line itself was very engaging. In fact, when one of my favorite characters dies, I almost cried. I was driving so I didn't but I wanted to. For an author to expel that kind of emotion out of a reader then you know the reader connected to the character.
The ending wasn't what I expected and I can't say more without giving spoilers.
Two young friends, Sarah and James, accidentally discover an ancient diary. The diary contains the love story of Susan and Joseph, during a time before computers, before automobiles! They are desperately devoted, a couple swept up by circumstances that threaten their lives together. Be prepared to be surprised, I won’t give away the ending. Not a life changing story, not earth shattering … but a very pleasant read. Just under 220 pages, this is a break out novel for Marguerite Madden and is available in Kindle and paperback on Amazon.
Overall, good story with a cliff hanger ending that had me looking for the sequel!
A wonderful blend of past and futuristic, with likeable characters and a great twist at the end.
If you're looking for love, romance, passion and courage... it's all here.
