Top Customer Reviews
Freya North is one of my favourite authors, I would say she is definitely in my top two! I am up to date with all her books so the last two years I have waited patiently (honest) for her next novel to be released. I was not disappointed with “The Way Back Home” and once again with her latest release “The Turning Point.” I was left highly satisfied, so much so that I had to stare at the wall for a few seconds after reading the last page, just to take it all in.
How do I even begin to explain how this book made me feel? How do I put into words just the sheer joy of the way Freya writes? Within reading the first few pages, I couldn’t help but smile as the talent of her writing shone through the pages and made me think “yep, that’s why she’s my favourite” The detail that goes into her novels is just incredible, her descriptions of the places they are set in, (this story taking place in both Norfolk and Pemberton, British Columbia) jump off the page and you feel like you become richer with the knowledge of places you have never been before. This novel follows the lives of Frankie and Scott, but you don’t end up just knowing them, you end up knowing their whole family and you don’t just know them, you care about them. You want to know how Frankie’s children, Sam and Annabel, are and what they are up to, you want to know what movies Scott’s doing music for next or if Frankie is any closer to reaching her book deadline. Freya has a way of making you connect with every character you meet. This story stays with you and you feel like Scott and Frankie become a part of your life as you truly get a sense of who they are, how they live and what they mean to each other.
I’ve said this before but I feel I have to say it again, I don’t like giving you the whole story in my reviews, you can read what the book is about online and of course on the back or inside of the book. I don’t feel like I could do the book justice if I give you my brief version as we all most likely read things differently. All I can offer is my thoughts that this was such a refreshing book for me, it was a welcome change to what I have been reading lately and it was an absolutely wonderful welcome back Freya North to my bookshelf (In America I only have The Way Back Home and It was getting lonely! )
So, if you are looking for a beautifully written, emotional ride that will take your breath away, please pick up a copy and add Freya North to your must read author list! Now, I will sit here and wait for next year! :p
As they struggle to deal with the logistics and the distance, the doubts and the initial reticence of family and friends, Frankie and Scott throw themselves into the business of loving each other...and their love is intense and rich and beautiful. So many wonderful moments depicted, so many times when their frustration at the distance is palpable. And having been through nearly three years of a long distance relationship when I was in the US and the love of my life was in Sweden, I could relate completely to Frankie's longing to be elsewhere, even when she knew that staying in Norfolk was best for her children.
Heart-wrenching, beautifully written and packing an emotional punch that will resonate...the Turning Point is the sort of novel that doesn't leave you. I finished reading it a week ago and I am still thinking about Frankie and Scott. A fantastic novel, Freya North. I can't wait to read your next offering.
There is nothing I can say that would describe the sheer beauty of the writing, the imagery and the delightful protagonists - you need to read it for yourself. Keep a box of tissues and some chocolates handy...
The pace is fairly slow but that is acceptable in this novel, because Ms North takes time to show the reader great depth in characterisation of all the cast, including the children - even the dog who is a very special service animal. The storyline is uncluttered with drama - thank goodness - and devoid of contrary women who take umbrage (love that word!) at the slightest hint of things not going their way. The sexual events are not overdone and what there is, is tasteful. I found no jarring notes in the script, nor in the plot.
Imagery in modern novels tends to be overlooked, but in this work, the beauty of both Canada and rural England become part of the story, not "just" background to the main events.
This is a novel for the jaded romance reader, the one who is tired of cliches, tired of heroines who tantrum and tired of endless pages of explicit sexual antics.
I just loved it!
