Editorial Reviews

Review

"Her (Cradit's) talent for creating atmosphere rivals Daphne du Maurier. This is modern Gothic with fierce smarts. Can't say it enough. I loved this book."Christopher Rice, New York Times Bestselling Author of The Heavens Rise

"It takes a great writer like Cradit to weave the threads of so many characters into an enjoyable story. I have no doubt that the name Cradit will one day be associated with the echelon of gothic fiction writers, namely Radcliffe, Blackwood, and Rice."- Becket, Bestselling Author and Assistant to Anne Rice

"Sarah Cradit's writing is tight and masterful. Her keen sense of how to pace a book and her ability to use just the right language to express the desires, fears and hopes of her characters is flawless."- Ionia Martin, Vine Top 100 Reviewer, Readful Things

"Cradit does an incredible job of building suspense. It's a slow, moody, edge of your seat suspense with a palpable sense of foreboding. This atmosphere kicks the book off and slowly escalates as you sink deeper into it."- Julie Whiteley, Clue Review

"The books are well written, the plot flows so quickly that you reach the end of the story well before you are ready and without realizing how much time has gone by since you were enchanted, committed and flung into the world of the Sullivan's, Deschanel's and their friends. You become a part of their lives as you are reading the books and think about the characters long after you have finished reading the book."- Stephenee Carsten, Nerd Girl Official


St. Charles at Dusk was a 2014 ABNA Quarter Finalist

In ST. CHARLES AT DUSK, Cradit writes about New Orleans with a passion that reminds me of a young Anne Rice in her novel Feast Of All Saints. Cradit's novel, however, is set in the contemporary Crescent City.

Personally, I try to visit New Orleans about once a year. But I have not had a chance to do that this year. I miss the city greatly. Reading Sarah's novel brought me back to my old stomping grounds instantly. It was an entirely accurate portrayal of New Orleans' atmosphere; I could feel smell all those familiar scents, hear those mockingbirds, feel the rain on my skin. It was good to be back!

The narrative is stylized with a Dickensian finesse reminiscent in Great Expectations. Cradit finely weaves together a tale of romance between her two heroes, Oz and Adrienne. Oz was an entirely sympathetic character; I could completely relate to his yearning for Adrienne. She, on the other hand, is a character brimming with the delicious irony of a love-interest riddled with internal struggles; I could relate with her very well also. Theirs is a wonderful coming of age story about the journey of self-discovery in the people we live with and love.

Skillfully crafted, ST. CHARLES AT DUSK is a novel I highly recommend. It's wonderful storytelling.

Oz Sullivan was 21 and totally infatuated by Adrienne Deschanel despite the fact she was only 16 and the sister of his best friend. They began a love affair aided by Nicolas, Oz's friend and Adrienne's brother, who lets them meet at his home. That is, until they were discovered by Adrienne's father and she was forbidden to see Oz again.

Adrienne's parents intervened further and decided to take Adrienne and her sisters away on holiday. Oz and Adrienne made plans to elope. Before they could take their plans further the family lost their lives in a tragic accident. Her father, mother and sisters, all dead, but Adrienne's body was never found.

Three years pass and Oz is an attorney in the family firm. His life is turned upside down when he learns Adrienne has been found but with no memory of her life before the accident. He's reluctant to open old wounds but finds himself drawn into the unfolding drama.

Thoughts

The first quarter or so of the book was slightly confusing due to the storyline flashbacks, time frames and different points of view, I think because they were quite long and detailed and, if I'm honest, hard to grasp initially.

The writing is very descriptive and makes New Orleans come alive and the pictures in my head of Oz's cottage were lovely. I want to live there! Sometimes during the story I found it quite hard to like Adrienne, she came across as quite selfish and childish more so than when she was younger.

It's a story of love and loss with overlapping aspects of mystery and deception. The threads of the story were woven together well and once I was drawn in I enjoyed it a lot.

Because most people like to know this before purchase: This book has 364 pages, and is one of those books that feel much longer; but in a good way. I didn't want to put the book down.This book was great. I'll start by saying that I fell in love with the main character Oz within the first few chapters. The author, whom by the way is a very talented author put her heart and soul into not only the book but the characters themselves.
The details were great on the setting. She really did her research in order to make the story come alive. I feel that if I went to New Orleans right now I would feel like I was in the book. She described Garden district and many other places so well.
The female lead's character was great too, but I will warn you she has a very selfish nature and by the end I really didn't care for her. Though she had reasons for everything thing she did she hurt Oz badly throughout the majority of the book.
Oz's love was the epic kind that every girl and woman would swoon over. His emotions and feelings clear and his heartbreak devastating, but in the end he loved Adrienne. Adrienne was a well thought out character. In her adolescence I really enjoyed her character. She was sassy, incredible intelligent. She was like an old soul, she knew more and understood more than she should have at such a young age.
It wasn't until later that I began to dislike her. Over all the book was great, when it ended for the most part everything was tied up well. It didn't just drop off without letting me feel an ending, though enough is left open for the reader to know there is more to come. There will be more to the series and I cannot wait to read what is to come. I would recommend this book, Not only is there romance, but suspense, mystery, and history all packed into one novel.

If I were still teaching high school English, I would be concerned with any of my students who wrote so poorly. Aside from deplorable grammar, the plot construction was totally disjointed, and the character development was extremely shallow. I am one of those people who feel obligated to finish a book I've begun, and I did finally manage to get through this one, but it took dogged determination to accomplish it.
