This is what a romance should be,
April 7, 2012
This review is from: The Old Mermaid's Tale (Paperback)This book is so beautiful that I'm a little bit speechless.
The language soars. It is rich and melodic and evocative. There are very strong characters and I really related to Clair and her romantic wanderlust. I enjoyed seeing the world through her eyes because everything glowed with magic.
The title and the cover threw me off a bit. I was expecting it to take place in the 1700s and be far removed from reality. Actually it takes place in the 1960s and calls forth startling detail of the area as well as the emotions of the characters. I found it to be realistic, believable, but with a dash of romanticism sharpening the whole beautiful world.
This is the best book I've read in recent memory. I highly recommend it.
So this was a wonderful Easter gift for me. wishing everyone a beautiful Easter and the A-to-Z Challenge will resume tomorrow with "H is for Home-made!"
