Monumental! Huge! A fantastic read,
By A Customer
This review is from: Penmarric (Paperback)
I first read Penmarric at the age of 14, and 10 years on I have just finished it for the eighth time. Each time I read it, it feels like the first time - never boring or obvious. It has everything you need in a book - romance (but hard, gritty stuff - nothing Mills & Boons here!), suspense and twists and turns. There are so many characters, all intertwined so intensely that it might actually pay to keep a note of who is related to who, and how! I have never read another book which covers such a huge time span and which remains so historically, socially and politically correct throughout. The research that must have gone into this work is incredible and for any Cornwall nuts out there, you will love the magical descriptions which capture the place so well! This is the perfect book to read snuggled up in a blanket, cat on lap in front of the fire whilst the rain beats the window outside. Recommended to all!
