Gripping And Consuming
The Storm by Amanda Jennings is a marvellous contemporary psychological read that will consume your thoughts.
The action alternates between 1998 and fifteen years later from various points of view. The reader becomes completely caught up in it all. We know that there was a defining moment but we do not know when or what. As we read we search for clues.
Guilt consumes. Guilt ruins lives. When guilt and lies are all you know, the truth is hard to find. We must tell the truth in order to live in freedom. Only then can a character shed the chains of the past and move forward.
First love never dies. The ties and the memories remain. The reader can sense the regret, the pain and the love. In contrast there is a twisted love that imposes rules and imprisoned. Love will never blossom when it is chained. Love needs to be free to fly.
The characters were well drawn and the plotline is cleverly executed. Amanda Jennings grabbed my attention from the start as I worked my way through the novel trying to decipher the clues.
I always enjoy Amanda Jennings novels. They are gripping, consuming reads.
I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
