Incestuous rape, a village where only innocents fit in, a forced marriage... Nothing close to literature but supermarket trash!
on 12 August 2015
Pathetic attempt to write a novel. As my husband always says "she better keep her daytime job"! The storyline is lame and predictable. I had guessed who raped Grace as soon as she was thinking about the event for the first time in the book and I had guessed the outcome of the book half way through. The rest was just suffered through since I had paid for the book and I do not like to abandon books half read. To be honest, the book lacked all depth, the characters were entirely flat and it felt like the story was rushed through like you had hit a fast speed button on your remote control. Perhaps that was the best or I would not have been able to finish this dribble. I will not read the continuation where Wilfred and Flora get married, since suddenly they are not in love anymore, in that book, and Flora wanting to be married to her dead fiancée instead. Who had been dead for 6 years when she met Wilfred in the first place. I mean, is this supposed to be called literature? Trash more like it. There are so many good books out there, so don't waste your time and money on this.
