The Perfect Knight
The Pretender: A Blackguard In Disguise by Ta’Mara Hanscom is a marvellous start to the Caselli Family series and I really enjoyed it. It’s a retro series set in the mid 1970’s, with references to shows like Star Trek, it evoked memories from my youth.
The Pretender is an epic family novel with good Christian values. It’s a close knit family with members all looking out for each other. A time when life was seemingly simpler and safer.
The novel is not without its heartache which the reader feels keenly. I spent much of the novel with my heart in my mouth, anticipating the action to come.
It is a story of lives both interacting and near misses – hence the heart in mouth style of reading.
