Like with other Victorian novels that feature a romantic story line, I did find myself questioning Abel’s intense love and devotion for Rima. The author did spend a lot of time describing her physical beauty, but I wondered what exactly would keep the two of them together given their vastly different experiences and cultures. It seemed to be more of a love-at-first-sight kind of thing for Abel, although Rima does have an amazing gift in her affinity with the forest and creatures.
In addition to the pages dedicated to describing the “green mansions”, the book also provides some opportunity for deeper reflection as we see Abel struggle with the decisions he made, conflicts between warring tribes, love, hope, and endurance. These elements spiced things up making for a more satisfying story and ending. Overall, I enjoyed the book, and I’m glad I stumbled across this free read!
