I listen to audiobooks most often but sometimes a book comes along that I just have to read and kindle works best for me. Two of these reviews are from the kindle format. Judging by the choice of these three reviews, you can see where my heart lies. All were read and reviewed by me on Audible, GoodReads, and Amazon. What was the last book you read, enjoyed, and reviewed? Please consider these three great reads.
I'm finding I like everything I read by this author. The Bridled Tongue by Catherine Meyrick was hard to put down. Alyce Bradley was a young girl whose frank observation of life got her in trouble with her family. As she grew, her honesty led her into bigger trouble. Sent away to learn how a young woman should behave, she returned after the death of the dowager... no more cultured or stifled than she was before she left. She was treated more as maid servant and kept to herself. The historical aspects of this time and place were so well described I could see and feel some of the horrible experiences Alyce went through. Sure to get your blood boiling over the injustice done to poor Alyce, it's a wonder anyone survived those times. A romance and a trial will keep you turning pages.
Agustina de Aragon by Gail Meath I loved this book. The beginning and ending were treated in an unusual way that affected the entirely of the book. A romance featuring a true life historical heroine during the Napoleonic War in Spain. Tragedy and triumph fill the pages. I look forward to reading more from this author.
