Will Alice ever be free from the problems that seem to follow her?
Will Jon manage to catch the evil lord?
Will Mary be found?
You will have to read it to discover what happens and believe me, there is much going on.
Many thanks to the author for a really enjoyable read.
Thus begins the thrilling conclusion of the RUNAWAY GIRL series by Emily S. Organ, one of our most favorite authors. If you’ve been following along with our reviews of this trilogy, you know we loved the first two installments, but what of the third? We’re happy to report that *drum roll* SINS OF THE FATHER IS ABSOLUTELY SENSATIONAL!!!
The conclusion to this brilliantly crafted saga is all high tension and nerve-racking drama. We’re spirited back into the fourteenth century where the whole original cast awaits. Alice de Grey finds herself in the center of things—especially after her husband Thomas sets off on another quest to return Sir Walter (boo! hiss!) to face justice for his sins. Prudence is beginning to ask questions about the mother that abandoned her at St. Hugh’s, and Elizabeth? Elizabeth is attempting to learn the fine points of how to run a household. Because of her past, she’s given up all hope of finding a husband, so she devotes herself to being a mother to her beautiful daughter Mary. The toddler is the catalyst for Alice to don her detective hat and find out what is going on.
In this outing, Ms. Organ again shows how exceptionally skilled she in delivering a story. It’s always such a pleasure picking up one of her tales. You’re assured reading pleasure and to be thoroughly entertained. With this epic saga, she’s gone above and beyond in researching the time period. She’s strewn these meticulous historical details that breathe life and authenticity into this work with an artist’s hand. While some of primitive methodologies used make us cringe, the illumination of what lurks in the human heart reminds us that no matter what the century, human nature hasn’t changed all that much. There has always been evil, and someone intent on performing it will carry it out no matter what.
I LOVED this book and this series. It’s going to stay by my bedside so that I can read it again and again. I truly hope Ms. Organ allows Alice and all her wonderful friends and family to come back in another series. I’d love to see where Alice can take all these newfound detective skills!
Definitely 5.0 stars to this book and the entire trilogy! It’s a superb read and one that’ll have you cheering for the good guys to win!!!
For intents and purposes of full disclosure, I was given a copy in exchange for a fair and honest review.
I was given a copy of this book to read and review.
This is the third book in the Runaway Girl series, and develops the story from when Jon leaves Alice in London for France to try to track down Sir Walter Rokeby, who had fled there to avoid prosecution.
The story follows Alice and her adopted family as they try to support each other through a series of trials and tribulations.
Yet again, Emily Organ manages to make links between medieval London and the present day, by reflecting the Cinderella-like status of mental health patients, although treatment has improved somewhat today!
There is murder, mayhem, a kidnapping and a fight to the death, with a crafty ending to several situations, but “Spoilers!”.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book.
