The Powerful Heritage of a Woman: The Loving Spirit by Daphne du Maurier
The Loving Spirit - Daphne du Maurier

In spite of its title, the novel The Loving Spirit isn’t just another one of those shallow romances set in the picturesque landscape of Cornwall that swamp the book market. Much rather the English novel from 1931 is a family saga with obvious echoes of Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights and poetry.

 

Spanning a hundred years, it shows the fate of four generations of the Coombie family starting in 1830 with wild Janet whose boundless love not only marks her own life but also that of her descendants... including that of her unloved son who makes a fortune to gain power and have his revenge to the very last. But he can't destroy the strong seed that Janet planted.

Sorrow Road
Sorrow Road: A Novel (Bell Elkins Novels) - Julia Keller
I have enjoyed reading this series and was hoping Bell would go out in a bang in this final novel in this series. As the prosecuting attorney in this Appalachian community, she has had her hands full as its citizens deal with drugs and crime. As Bell wrestles with her job she also must handle her own life issues and finding a balance between the two. In this final novel, revenge seems to be on everyone’s mind. The passage of time, the events that have occurred make no difference, it is about retaliation.
 
I found myself not enjoying this novel as much as I have the previous Bell Elkins novels. There were high and lows as I read but there wasn’t the anticipation nor the adrenaline-rush that I have felt in previous novels. I didn’t feel a deep connection to the characters yet I enjoyed their stories and how they tried to resolve their issues. It was nice to see that Bell’s personal life was finally seeing some sunshine. At first, I wasn’t sure what allowed that to seep in and what that would actually do to her but I enjoyed how Bell accepted this change. I enjoyed this series and I liked reading about Bell’s small community and the issues that they faced.
