Editorial Reviews


Wilson did a brilliant job of writing a novel that draws the reader in and helps them lose themselves in the story. The characters are relatable, the details perfectly laid out, there is enough suspense that it is hard to put the book down, and the sex scenes are steamy without being unnecessarily graphic and raunchy...this makes for a interesting read that leaves you hanging and wanting to read the next in the series. ~ 2017 Authors Talk About It

The novel was exquisitely done. It was written with such grace that even when it took time to uncover all the mysteries, it was worth it in the end. ~ Trisha Dawn for Readers' Favorite

Wilson, in the obliquely titled "The Para-Portage of Emily", interweaves these three diverse genres into a compelling, magic carpet of a novel...Intelligent, well-written, with fully fleshed out characters and a story with more twists than a spiral staircase, "The Para-Portage of Emily" had me gripped until the very last page. ~ Chloe Thurlow

The Para-Portage of Emily by Muffy Wilson is a fascinating, gripping and intricately thought out novel. Eloquent writing, with beautifully described scenes, and interesting little crumbs scattered throughout - look for them as they are leading somewhere - make for an interesting, enticing read. A haunting, ethereal romance, with paranormal events, intrigue, mystery and a fascinating, winding, complicated plot, all set out to grab you by the shoulders and keep you reading. A ghostly character and an incredible yearning permeate the book, which I found really touching. The characters are delightful, and sometimes quirky, well developed and entirely realistic. Lots of tantalizingly, dangerous, other-worldly and sensuous scenes. A lovely, enjoyable read. ~ Carol Coetzee for Readers' Favorite

I thoroughly enjoyed Emily's story. This offers an old-world charm of Victorian writing found in the romance classics of Bronte. Muffy Wilson has created a magical combination of romance and erotica in the most tasteful manner imaginable. The Para-Portage of Emily: Shadow Seduction Series, Volume 1 is a rare combination of ghost story fantasy that pulls the reader into a complex tale without the stigma of pornography while maintaining all of the elements of a sexy read. I am anxious for the second installment of Wilson's series. ~ Lisa McCombs for Readers' Favorite

The Para-Portage of Emily walks a surreal tightrope between a woman’s loneliness and an ancient love that transcends time. Beautifully told and artistically written, it tells the story of Emily, who goes to an island estate to handle family business as well as rest from the effects of a heart condition. As she delves into the history of the house and its original occupants, Colin and Amalya, she becomes obsessed with the passion and romance of their forever love for each other. Soon, the line between reality and the fantastic blurs, leaving a confused and heartsick Emily to wonder if it is possible to cross the barriers of time and space to possess a love so pure, ethereal and everlasting.

This author has written a terrific story full of heart-rending emotion, lust and laughter. Remarkably, she interjects spell-binding poetry in her flowing prose, giving her story an almost eighteenth-century flavor. Readers will smile at the climactic twist Ms.Wilson springs with characteristic flourish as well as adore the characters of a dog and cat that lend added spice and humor to her sprawling narrative.

This is a difficult book for me to review. I’m not sorry I read it, it was worth reading. In fact, through three quarters of the book, I thought it fabulous, one of the best I’ve read this year. The author writes beautifully—a delight to read.

So what happened? Two things: First there is far more minutely detailed sex than I like. But I understand that a lot of readers like precise sex scenes, so I never ding a book for having detailed sex. So this book was still headed home with a five star until the very ending. I reread the ending several times and every time I had the same feeling of disappointment, but not because the writer chose a different direction than I expected. Honestly, I love to be surprised. My problem was the author had set up an alternative possibility which I had latched upon, and then she abruptly dropped that line for another at the very end of the book. For me, even after reading the actual ending three times, I remained dissatisfied with the transition.

Thus, I can only give this book a 4 star. It’s beautifully written with fabulous characters. I just felt let down with the end. But who is to say? You may love the surprise ending. So my advice is to read this book and find out for yourself.

Muffy Wilson has brought a whole new meaning to sensual and spiritual romance in her newest book, The Para-Portage of Emily. She brings the reader to a new depth in participation in her story by rousing our all senses, and thrusting us into the sixth dimension of a spiritual love through her main character, Emily, who experiences the tragic, mysterious love of Colin and Amalya. Muffy weaves her hypnotic words into descriptions that seduce you to smell, taste, hear, and touch everything her words describe, making the reader a direct participant in the story and enabling you to feel the love Emily has for Colin and Amalya.
I was drawn to Emily’s character immediately. Her character is built as a strong willed, disciplined law partner with her father in Chicago and has a recently diagnosed heart condition, leaving her little time for love. Throughout the story I felt Emily was a lonely woman who was seduced by Colin and his magnetic masculine personality, who devoted his life and all his love to his wife, Amalya, even though they have been dead for decades. His love continued on in time in Uncle John’s estate, perhaps waiting for Emily’s arrival
From Chicago, to the dock on Lake Michigan to the Island where Emily goes to process the legal work of her deceased Uncle’s estate, a mystery and cold winter’s frozen vice take control of Emily, who suspects she will never leave the Island again. She succumbs to the friendliness of the people who live on the island year round, and discovers most of them are cousins and know everything about who lives there. But still unknown mysteries about Uncle John, the estate and the original owner, Colin, draw her into a web of complicated and powerfully tragic love relationships.

This is a story to savor. Attorney Emily Macque immediately falls in love with the island and Mariner's Maiden, her uncle's home there. Fascinated and nearly obsessed with the history of the welcoming home, she immerses herself in delving into its history and learning more about the original lovers who lived there.

Ms. Wilson's descriptions are poetic and enthralling, placing the reader in the midst of the story, and the relaxed pace of the story does not lessen the power of suspense. Shrouded in mystery, romance, and eroticism, "The Para-Portage of Emily" is a treat for the senses, a haunting indulgence. Despite hints throughout, the ending still surprised me, and though satisfied, I regretted the literary journey's end. Highly recommended. I look forward to more from this promising series.
