Rope of Sand, by C. F. Dunn, is the third book in The Secret of the Journal series. Emma learned what Matthew’s secret was in Death be not Proud and now she is going to meet his family. She isn’t sure what to think and they are not either. His family is leery, because it has not always gone well when people learn the family’s secret.
Emma’s problems with Professor Staahl have not ended either. He has taken her to court. Will Emma have to expose Matthew’s secret to keep herself safe? Will Matthew’s family accept her?
About the Author-
C. F. Dunn lives in South-East England and has written Mortal Fire and Death be not Proud. She has a specialist dyslexia and autism school.
Rope of Sand, by C. F. Dunn, was the third book in The Secret of the Journal series. I thought it was as intriguing as the other books. The first book focused on Emma’s infatuation with Matthew, the second book focused on their relationship and Matthew’s secret, and this book focused on their relationship and the trials they faced with their special situation.
I was very glad that this book had a list of characters and a synopsis of the other two books. It really helped me remember who was who and what happened in each book. I was ready to start the book and enjoy it after that. It was a long book at 462 pages, but Dunn did a wonderful job of including a lot of detail, which kept me captivated until the end.
While you do not need to read the other books in the series first, I do recommend that you do, so you can know everything that has happened. I am looking forward to the next book in the series, Realm of Darkness.
