Peter is trying to save his good name. Rosemary is trying to steal it from him. At the end of the day, what purpose will prevail?
Oh, the hidden treasures you can find when organizing your library…
The concept of this book is interesting, but I think I enjoyed more the idea than the final product.
For some reason, I couldn’t be drawn into the story and I found myself skipping some paragraphs more than once. Maybe there were too many unnecessary details, or it might have been that the focus of the novel wasn’t something very appealing to me: history, legacy, inheritance.
However, I think the last few chapters were better; they got my attention a bit easier because they highlighted what I assume were the most important aspects of the story.
Besides, I really enjoyed Peter. He was my favorite character. I loved him most of the time, his sincerity and even his struggles found a place in my heart. I liked to learn things from his viewpoint.
Rosemary and Willa were fine as well. Nevertheless, the rest of the characters were not very important to me, and sometimes I couldn’t tell the difference between one and the other.
It’s not a bad book. It’s well-written and all, but I believe it had way too much to digest all at once and that didn’t help to keep me interested.
