The Truth Will Set You Free
The Marriage Of Innis Wilkinson by Lauren H Brandenburg is an entertaining contemporary novel. It is the sequel to The Death Of Mungo Blackwell but can be read as a stand-alone. I enjoyed catching up with familiar characters.
The feud between the Blackwells and the Tofts continues with each side trying to do better than the other. Like Romeo and Juliet, there are two families trying to arrange a marriage. The happy couple feel pulled this way and that as they try to please everyone.
It is important to be the person you were created to be. Others may try to mould us but we need to resist. It is exhausting if we are continually trying to be someone we are not, just to please others. We need to be free to be ourselves.
To live in freedom, we need to live in the truth. The truth will always set us free. We must not build our lives on a foundation of lies.
The characters are all delightfully drawn. I have enjoyed watching them grow and progress. I love the continuing thread of the macaroons running through both books – you need to read them to see what I mean.
The Marriage Of Innis Wilkinson is a unique read. The characters will take up residence in your heart and leave you smiling.
I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
