Review: The Silver Witch

The Silver Witch The Silver Witch by Paula Brackston
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the first book by Paula Brackston I have the pleasure to read. The Silver Witch takes place in Wales, UK and tells the story of two women in two different time periods. Seren is a shaman in the court of Prince Brynach, who lived around 910 AD near an ancient lake. Tilda is a young widow and ceramic artist who moves to a secluded Welsh cottage on the banks of the same ancient lake, but in modern times. There is a deep connection between the two women and the lake. The story is bewitching and has wonderful Welsh historical details. There is a nice unexpected twist at the end. Great read!

Review: Black Rabbit Hall

Black Rabbit Hall Black Rabbit Hall by Eve Chase
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A rollercoaster of emotions: from joy to sadness to frustration to elation. Black Rabbit Hall is a book full of surprises and an incessant journey that spans over 30 years. This is the story of four children broken by the loss of their beloved mother and how they learn to cope with grief, change and love. Eve Chase gifts us with a beautifully written story which has the right amount of intrigue and carries you, chapters after chapters, to a remarkable ending. Enjoyable from the first to the last page.

Review: The Color of Destiny

The Color of Destiny The Color of Destiny by Julianne MacLean
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is the second book by Julianne MacLean I read and I can say that so far she is consistent in her writing style and her stories are smartly developed and well written. This book has many characters and it makes it a bit challenging to keep up with all the stories at times, but the author ends the book in a beautiful way by bringing them all together in a happy and surprising ending. This is a light and fast read.

Review: Tiny Little Thing

Tiny Little Thing Tiny Little Thing by Beatriz Williams
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Interesting book about a 60's american family with great political aspirations and a young woman groomed to marry in this family. We follow the internal conflicts of Tiny and her desire to be free to be herself. Great ending... except... I am still wondering who actually owned the Mercedes. Oh well! This is a good summer read.

Review: Before I Go

Before I Go Before I Go by Colleen Oakley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is such a beautiful sad book... I cried and cried! I still recommend it as it is a beautiful story about a young woman facing death and trying to help her husband move on after she passes away. There are twists which make this story beautiful. Make sure you have some tissues near by though!
