|I loved this book. Classified as a romance novel, Edenbrooke by Julianne Donaldson, was not solely based alone on the romance angle of the plot, with some action intermingled with character development. |
I grew to appreciate the characters for themselves and wanted to cry when they did something stupid and scream happily when they overcame a fault. For me, that is the crowning jewel of the book, if I cannot relate to the character’s struggles or there is no development in their moral character, I lose interest, but that was definitely not the case with this book.
All of the main characters had some visible faults, some overcame them and some let it rule and dictate who they were. This book is a keeper for sure, with the plot moving at a greater speed than some of the original romances like Jane Austen, and is perfect for readers who need quickly moving plots to hold their attention.
