The Preacher's Bride by Jody Hedlund
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Wow. This book kept me up all night. Every chapter ended in the most 'annoying' cliffhanger. 'Annoying' is probably the wrong word because I mean it in a totally positive way! :o
Its tone reminded me greatly of Margaret Atwood's 'Alias Grace'. And I LOVE Margaret Atwood, and I LOVED Alias Grace. Its perfectly crafted. I couldn't find a single error. And I don't mean copy error (although it is clean of those too), I mean in structure and plot, etc. Remarkable writing, kept me on my toes (or with my head slightly lifted, rather, because I read it in bed!), hungry for more with every page I turned. I certainly wouldn't be surprised if this ends up being a bestseller.
I haven't read many novels based on historical events and I'm so pleased that this was one of the few I have read. It's given me a hankering for more! So, Jody, when's your next book coming out? ;o)
(For those who missed yesterday's post. Have a read. I expressed my excitement about this book a little more. This review is from goodreads so I thought I'd better be a little more civilised!)
