Often, I thought the details of minor events went on too long with not contributing to the story line. Maybe shorter would have been better. Then it could have a happy ending without having the feeling of so much despair while reading the whole series.
I would recommend this to others if you enjoy factual, real life type stories, but don't expect a happy ending. I wish I wouldn't have read it. It will be on my mind to long.
FYI: There are sexual events, but not a lot detail.
Let me begin by warning you that "Sentence of Marriage" is not a stand-alone book in a trilogy of novels. It is the first part of what is one long narrative about the troubled marriage of a single character and the life of her community. The book that Amazon is offering for free on the Kindle cuts off the narrative, and if you want to read the whole story you have to buy the other books.
The series details the struggles and tortures endured by a young New Zealand woman, Amy, who dares to cast her dreams higher than her small farming community and hope for true love. When Amy's naive dreams lead to personal tragedy, her life is set on a course of suffering and family abuse. What follows is a series of betrayals, violence, and social ignorance that take our heroine from her teens into her forties. Amy is a young saint, who blames no one for her problems but herself. She endures everything that comes her way without believing that she might deserve something better. The book's descriptions of the community are very well written, but it narrative is filled with inconsistent two-dimensional characters that are either irredeemably evil (Amy's heartless stepmother and her tyrannical husband) or impotent in their good intentions (everyone else in her community).Read more ›
finish this review. How anyone who love their children could put them through what this young girl went through
because she made the mistake of being talked into doing something wrong by some man she thought loved her.
DO NOT READ this will made me feel so down. I made myself finish it the first time around. When I read this
before there were no sequels or companion books...... I don't plan on reading those either. As another reviewer
said this is "dark". Too dark for me and definitely should not be listed under "love story" or "historical romance"
where I found it.
