Here are my reviews of the Seeking Fortune and Seeking Patience:
Valentina is a beautiful gypsy who is known for her ability to read palms. But, presently, she must consider the health and wellbeing of her sister, Yolanda. Fearing that Yolanda is getting sicker, the sisters head to an estate where they believe a physician is nearby.
James Colchester is a wealthy, landed gentry and a brave soldier. He's also a grieving father and widower. In an act of Christian charity, he welcomes the gypsy sisters into his home. But, his faith is weak at the moment and he asks Valentina to read his palm. Even though he's allowed them to stay in his home, her Rom heritage prevents her from trusting him or his English ways. Therefore, in an act of spite and fear, she withholds possibly critical information from him. But, can the Rom spirits be trusted anyway, or are God's ways higher?
As a romance, what begins with infatuation and intrigue develops over time into love. Yet, that love will be tested by class distinction and pride among other things.
What follows is a story of extreme emotions. You will want your tissues nearby because the emotions will get intense. But, when you finish, there will be a sense of peace that all has been made right.
Themes covered include - prejudice, deceit, forgiveness, love, true Christian character, and prayer. I loved how Valentina gradually learned and accepted the ways of God through reading the Bible.
If I were to add anything, I'd love for there to be an epilogue that connects this book with Seeking Patience. But, maybe the author can write a short novella that fills in the middle?
Romance - PG - kissing
Language - nothing offensive
My rating - 5 stars.
This is a story with a lot of layers. From the very first chapter, I was drawn into the story. It's a story of opposites, yet similarities. Of people who have been hurt and seeking something to heal that hurt. Of people who are full of anger and revenge and those who forgive and love. Of those who protect, yet also need protection. Of one particular person who shifts from anger and revenge to forgiveness and love.
Luca Boldor is a man without an identity. Is he a Gypsie or is he English? But, when we first meet him, he's an injured man escaping from those who would kill him. He needs help or he'll die. As we get to know him, the reader also learns that he's emotionally hurting. As his physical injuries heal, the reader also learns how his emotional injuries heal. However, will he accept the help and steps to healing or will his pride interfere?
Lady Patience Blakwell is a woman without protection. A widow, she knows that there are those within her household that would betray and harm her. She, too, has been hurt and continues to live in danger. Yet, when an injured man is discovered on her doorstep, will she help him? Or, might she be inviting more trouble into her life? Who can she trust?
On the negative, there are scenes and events that occur that are a bit unbelievable, but I forgive this because the rest of the themes and plot development are so strong and good. My advice would be to pay attention to the various themes such as pain, forgiveness, revenge, love, etc. Who does what and what happens to them. It's a beautiful story of justice, love, and forgiveness. If you get too caught up in expecting everything to be completely believable, you'll miss these.
Language - G - clean
Romance - PG - some kisses
Violence - PG-13 - some fight scenes, blood, attempted violence against the female character.
My rating - 5 stars
Seeking Fortune: What a well-written book, so different from the usual historical novels. I enjoyed the unique and passionate love story between an English lord and a gypsy woman. The author takes us into an unchartered territory where we discover the gypsy culture. An interesting clash of cultures where love infiltrates and solves problems. I couldn’t put this book down.
Seeking Catherine is as good as the two other books.
