Book Review – Sarnia

I admit I was skeptical to begin with when reading the blurb about this book. I thought to myself that it would be another painful romance with weak female leads and overbearing, too-good-to-be-true male characters. But I am so happy to admit that I was terribly wrong.
This book was a beautiful experience. It takes my mind along paths that it has only traveled with books such as Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights. I was impressed by the ability of the author to entirely capture your imagination and I could literally not put the book down without a struggle.


The narrative follows the life of a young woman, who recently lost her mother and in a world where women don’t work, she has a respectable job which she enjoys. Surprise relatives from a little island come and welcome Sarnia to their home and tell her of a father who is dying, a father she thought was dead.
Sarnia, bound by duty and also curiosity leaves the life she knows along with a keen suitor to meet her new family.
Things are not as they seem and Sarnia finds herself with strange circumstances and stranger people on her hands.
A charming book of true love? Certainly!
Would recommend it to those who love the romantic classics.
