To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Only 3 stars because I had a hard time getting into this story. I absolutely loved reading “One for the blackbird one for the crow”. I felt the writing was not as strong in this book. I’m still a fan of this author and will continue to buy her books. This book just wasn’t a good fit for me.
I was looking forward to reading this book and was very disappointed. It was so depressing! I also felt it was very repetitive , many of the descriptions were repeated in new scenes. The ending was good but it took a long depressing road to get there. Hope her next book is more like her first two books.
I loved this author’s previous two novels, found the writing, character development and storyline to be exceptional. I was excited to read this book when it was published. Alas, it left me wondering if I was reading the same author’s work. The pace of the story was stifling until the end, with characters that only added to the drag. The strange obsession between the oldest brother and his younger sister to paint her in the nude, many of the paintings occurring while she was a young teenager is unsettling and never explained in away that makes it more palatable. I finished the book, but it took a lot of determination.
