She finds the journal and begins to read it, but will she be able the truth of her life and what the journal may reveal.
About the Author-
C.F. Dunn lives in England with her husband and daughters where she writes and runs a specialist dyslexia and autism school.
I have read this book twice and it gave me more to think about the second time. I noticed more of the mystery and intrigue, especially that which surrounded Matthew. I am very curious about him; he doesn’t eat, drink, or seem to sleep. Emma is also an interesting character. She becomes so dependent upon Matthew both before and after she was attacked. All of the danger and the romantic drama made this first book in the series seem like the Twilight series by Stephanie Meyer.
Emma believes in Christ, but she doesn’t seem to take advantage of the comfort that Jesus could offer her. She seems to be really focused on protecting her virtue from Matthew. It seems normal to me, but still strange to be protecting her virtue so much as she is so dependent on him.
I thought this book was good and I am looking forward to the next one. You will have to read the book yourself to see what you think.
