It didn't move me emotionally like I thought it would. I wonder if I had just read the French version, if I could, there would have been more meaning.
Vernita’s book reviews
I am very grateful for this accurate account of what happened to Mrs. Lincoln showing real letters between her and E. Keckley. E. Keckley wrote a very feeling opening and closing to this book.
I kept delaying to finish this book because I was reading all the reviews about it being depressing and a bad ending, but finally I pushed myself to finish the book and I am so glad I did. I actually think the ending is so beautiful. Hardy created such a good, unselfish soul in this woman she sacrificed her life for others till the end, her pride and (I can do it myself) independence got in the way of getting the help she needed but I can relate to who she was. And I have great respect and honor for the incredible woman she was. Hardy also showed how when we lack self-worth we think negatively which avalanches to bad choices.
Neat little mystery with Mr. Donovan from The House of a Thousand Candles. I noticed a similar plot line through the first 3 books but he writing style keeps you curious and wanting to read on.
If you like sacrasm and bantering conversation between people then you should read this. Brought back my Irish humour.
This book kept me reading just to find out what happens, and will read the sequel set in the same place Rosalind at Red Gate. I like his style of writing and I like happy endings so I plan on reading all his books.
