Sadly Broken

by Georgia on May 13, 2007

I am not a fan. Perhaps it is just me, I was expecting an engaging novel based around an important event in history. What I got was a very poorly written romance novel with a female lead that is mildly distasteful. The whole time I felt like I was reading a film script that needed the actors talent and magic to give the characters any substance. When I finished I discovered the author IS a screenwriter -- I won't launch into that discussion :-) but I will say that with all of the great writing available I would not pause here any longer. For an example of a beautiful novel written with a historical event as a central 'character' of the book and a strong, complex female lead I would point you to "The Widow From The South" by Robert Hicks.
