I returned my previous library book without finishing it so I have started a new one. I abandoned my previous novel because I thought it had a terrible plotline and the characters were boring.
New book title: Goodnight Mister Tom
So far, I have read up to page 31. The characters that I have encountered are Mr Tom and Willie Beech. The novel is set during the Second World War, and near the beginning of it, Willie is evacuated to the countryside. Willie’s mother requested that he lives by the church so he is adopted by the man who lives right by the church’s graveyard, Mr Tom.
The book I am currently reading is called ‘Dark Triumph’ and it is a romance novel. I would describe this novel as mysterious with a hint of romance, but not a lot. The story contains a lot of graphic details such as blood and gore and a couple of explicit scenes as well.
The story is based at some point during the 15th century in Brittany. The main character is a young woman named Sybella D’Albret. She lives in an unpleasant environment with her father, D’Albret, and her brother Julian. Everyone in the palace thinks that Sybella is loyal to her father, however, we learn that this is not the case and that she is actually trying to rescue a prisoner who her father plans to kill. The prisoner is a duchess’ strongest warrior named Beast and is in dire need to return to the Duchess. After Sybella escaped with the Beast they face an array of different challenges.
