A powerful story,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Lifetime Burning (Paperback)
I couldn't put my Kindle down and read this (my fourth LG novel in as many weeks!) in just a few days. I think Linda Gillard is an amazing author - I doubt I will ever read a story on the subject of illicit love written any better.
I liked the way the story was told, going back and forth from one decade to another - this gave the reader a far more powerful insight into the characters, who were all superbly written - I felt I knew all there was to know about each of them.
It was a long story, but I was never bored, I just kept turning those pages. The story gives the reader a great deal to think about whilst reading, and after the book is finished. A truly worthwhile read.

Thank you very much for this review (and your other reviews of my books.) You've understood (as some reviewers have not) the purpose behind the scrapbook-style back-&-forth narrative. Telling the story like that allowed me to cover 60 years of an extended family's life, whilst leaving out the boring bits!
