A wonderful Debut Novel,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dead Men (Kindle Edition)
Do not read this book if you are boring, staid and without true human emotion. If you do choose to read it, then ignore the 2-star review. I too am an amateur scholar of all things Scott and whilst it would be easy to criticise aspects of this book, as it would with almost any novel, it is unfair to do so from this stand point. The author has done some excellent research and woven a truly wonderful mix of romance, mystery and ghostliness within a well-founded historical construct.
Allow yourself to be carried away by the ever-changing emotions of Birdie and submerse yourself in the unique love story that slowly develops between her and Adam Caird. Do this and ignore the slightly corny names and you will, I promise, really enjoy this book. It is heart-warming in every sense of the word. It is beautifully written, yet leaves room for your own imagination to fill in the gaps.
This is not a history book, it is a novel about love and passion based around a unique and clever storyline. I didn't necessarily agree with the way it ended, but then i didn't write it. I did,however, truly enjoy reading it.
