…then you will love THE ANGRY WOMAN SUITE by Lee Fullbright!
I just love historical dramas that span generations, though I usually go for stories like this set in Europe. Yet I really enjoyed this book’s beautiful writing, literary voice, suspenseful plot, and complex characters. A story of family dynamics and (at times) abuse, this story truly reveals how “the sins of the father” impact subsequent generations. Told from the perspectives of Francis Grayson, his stepdaughter Elyse, and his musician mentor Aidan Madsen, the reader sees how the characters’ relationships are perceived differently depending on their own perspective, which often blurs the search for the Truth.
I don’t want to give too much away, but I will say that the vivid characters were what made this heartbreaking story special. I particularly liked Elyse’s voice, her touching relationship with her grandfather, and her strong character.
