A Desperate Fortune by Susanna Kearsley

Postby Susan » Sat April 25th, 2015, 11:32 am

Note: The title should be A Desperate Fortune

I have loved Susanna Kearsley's books. I've given them all either 4 or 5 stars on Goodreads, so I have high expectations and this one did not meet those expectations. It was slow moving and nothing much happened. I forced myself to finish to see if there was some surprise at the end. There was one tiny surprise, but this is no Marianna. Although there is a past and present story, there is none of Kearsley's time slips or supernatural elements here. The present story was more appealing to me and I give Kearsley credit for giving the present story's protagonist Asperpeger syndrome.

Thanks for the spoiler. Glad I gave up, as much as I love Kearsley this wasn't doing it for me.

Thanks for editing the thread title. I guess I was so "desperate" to be done with the book that I forgot the "A".
