I just wish she could write a story that someone else had outlined for her. Her books contain lots of delicious hints at mystery and the supernatural that are never explored and developed as fully as I would like. And for the million characters she throws into every book, you can really boil them all down to three archetypes: (1) The bold, wild-at-heart, utterly f***ed up woman. (2) The purely evil man whose hobbies include rape and torture. (3) The good-hearted man who feels the urge to love and help a woman who treats him like trash.
Did I enjoy this book? Yes. It's my fourth book I'be read by her, so I knew to expect chapters that were touching and beautiful, but a plot that didn't cohere quite as tightly as it ought to. If you know that going in, you can really appreciate her way with words.
To compare this book with Palmieri's other books: The Witch of Belladonna Bay is her best book. If you haven't read any of her books, I recommend starting with that one. Witch House of Persimmon Point is her second best. Then Witch of Little Italy and Witch of Bourbon Street are tied.
I can't say that I loved this book but I also don't hate it enough to write a bad review for it. This was a dark story and I knew that going in by the Author's little note in the beginning but I never imagined that it would be as dark as it was. I also felt that there were too many people to keep track of at the same time to fully get into this story and I might have helped if I have read some of her other books to understand what this series is really about. Overall, If you are into books that have that dark side and witch lore, then this is the book for you!
Thank You to Suzanne Palmieri for writing a story that you can just tell that you put your heart and soul into it!
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book from BookSparks : FRC 2016!
This book had me from the start. I hated to put it down for real live. It got to the point where I was so immersed that I rushed through it just so I could see what happens. My initial thoughts are that it is a lot like Tess of the d'Urbervilles. It is a heartbreaking and seems like that tragedy doesn't end. But you fall in love with the characters despite their major flaws and seem to root for them even when you want to slap some sense into them as a lot of their tragedy is of their own orchestration.
The author opens this narrative with a letter about trigger warnings. The story is riddled with every kind of abuse you can think of: rape, torture, physical abuse, verbal abuse, incest, abandonment. You name it and this family has probably been plagued by it. While some of it was extremely hard to read I don't feel like it was painted in a positive light. I liked how it showed that there are lasting effects from abuse and it can spurn generations of the same abuse if not recognized so one can break the cycle.
I really enjoyed reading this book. And I think it would appeal to anyone who is a fan of VC Andrews books. She also delved into generations of familial abuse. But I think one would have to be in a place where they have come to terms with their own abuse in order to be able to get through this with the Amore family. I give this book a solid 5 out of 5.
