That's this book in a nutshell.
Book Rating: Best of the Best
The good old days are here again!!!!
I tell you, it took a lot of guts to read this book. Yeah, yeah, call me chicken, it's okay. But after the last Alexander book I read, I was beginning to think her style wasn't for me any more. I liked her first few series, but the last several books left me wanting.
Not this one!
This book is a crazy-kind-of-scrambled-up
GWTW/Seabiscuit. Am I right, or am I right?!? You know I'm right! And how fabulous is that?!?!?!
I can almost hear Mr. O'hara saying, "Land is the only thing that matters--it's the only thing that lasts!" And I can see Mammy with her adorable smile and her sweet tears... and THEN right after that I see horses racing down the track, the jockey's jersey colors flashing across the screen!
This book was exceedingly well paced, with wonderful depth and--BOY OH BOY--this book's got mother-loads of spice! Ooooh, Mama!!!! Could be considered too steamy by some, but all was appropriate in my way of thinking, especially considering they were married.
Great hero, great heroine, great plot and great history. *wink*
Glad I gave this one a try. Now you gotta give me your two cents. Did you like it? Is it on your TBR list?
