My Rating: 4 of 5 Ravens
Synopsis: One enchanting romance. Two lovers keeping secrets. And a uniquely crafted book that binds their stories forever.
When Evelyn Morgan walked into the village bookstore, she didn’t know she would meet the love of her life. When Brendan Thorne handed her a medieval romance, he didn’t know it would change the course of his future. It was almost as if they were the cursed lovers in the old book itself . . .
The Thorn and the Blossom is a remarkable literary artifact: You can open the book in either direction to decide whether you’ll first read Brendan’s, or Evelyn’s account of the mysterious love affair. Choose a side, read it like a regular novel—and when you get to the end, you’ll find yourself at a whole new beginning
Review: I love anything and all things related to Arthurian Legend (as I am sure you are getting tired of hearing) and this book meets the cut of an old romance mixed with a new. This novel has the heard and soul of an old story told by a night's fire with a modern spin.
I love the dual nature of the book so I can read both sides of the story and I love how the book is simple and remains true to one theme and place. I think this book makes an excellent addition to my library and even though I read a ton of books only a few get a permanent place on my shelves.
I will look out for more lovely novels from this author and this publisher.
