The sequence of the plot jumping from one place to another.
Can't follow the plot easy. Definitely would not recommend.
I have never read a story like The Cross of Santiago and Evie Gaughan's attention to detail is amazing, particularly when writing about the historical part of the story. She combines the different areas of the plot in a way I was unprepared for and found especially emotional.
I have always been a little obsessed with Tudor history so loved the fact I could get my fix in this book and know readers of historical romance will be hooked on Amanda and Xavier's story.
I received this as a review copy, but this has had no influence on my opinion.
Told in the third person, the chapters alternate between the present (2010) and the past (1588). Switching time periods takes some getting used to, but as the book goes on, the stories become intertwined. The setting and descriptions of the historical sections were superb. I could really visualise the Armada’s battle on the high seas, where the author shows a wonderful eye for detail. It is clear a lot of research was done on the period, but at times this could set the story back. The plot is so original, full of Armada treasure, love, redemption and much, much more. The Heirloom was a charming read and left me wanting to visit the lovely bookstore and the old cottage overlooking the bay where it all began. Highly recommended!
The past sections are set during the Spanish Armada attempt to invade England and, making a change, this is seen partly from the Spanish point of view.
Good story but needs more editing/proof reading.
I'll definitely read more from this author.
