|The House on Willow Street by Cathy Kelly (Buy Here)|
I went for The House on Willow Street by Cathy Kelly as from reading the synopsis; it seemed like it was going to be an enjoyable and a relaxed read… and I loved it from beginning to end!
The House on
Street was such a charming and delicate book but
with a hint of obscurity and secrets, which gave deepness to the novel. The
characters were promptly introduced and I understood who they were and what
they were all about right from the onset… from time to time I read books and I
am still puzzled who is who after half way through the book, so this was
extremely appropriate for me. As the story developed, so do the characters and
their secretive lives. Even though this wasn’t a book that made you gasp or had
to inform whoever is sitting next to you what just happened, it was a book that
quietly captured your imagination and wonderment. I went through quite a few
emotions whilst reading, due to the array of characters and their individual
stories. I feel that this novel was extraordinarily likeable and astounding.
I believe that the greatest books are the ones that you can find a connection with, ones that bring back memories, or ones that simply leave a mark. I felt I had a genuine connection with the character Tess as she seems akin to the kind of being I could be friends with… friendly, gracious and good-natured. However I couldn’t help but feel drawn to Danae through her individuality and her introverted surroundings. Actually thinking on it, I completely loved Danae’s account the most because of her mystifying yet kind-natured behaviour, the exposure of her past and how she overcame that and moved on… it truly touched my heart.
I positively recommend anybody who likes to read a book that is full of secrets, puts a smile on your face, and a story that grasps at your compassion, to go and buy this book now, now, now!
