The bridge of time. The bonds of love. Which is stronger?
The locket's latch released, and I held my breath, waiting for eternity. Her smile deepened as her eyes misted, and she drew me near to kiss my cheek.
"Oh, yes, Wren...for always and always." Her forehead tipped to mine - her fingers gentle against the nape of my neck. "Thank you…."
Gentle, sensual, passionate. Jenny-Wren and Annabel. Magic has woven their lives together. Destiny has bridged their worlds.
It is not correct to categorise this as erotica. It is a gentle, well written story of two young women who meet across a lake, and across time, become friends and fall in love. There are a couple of scenes with sex in them, but they are tastefully and wel written, not gratuitous sex for the sake of it. The story also shows how incidents that happen to us as we are growing up, the attitudes and actions of adults around us and the social expectations and constraints of the time we live in have an impact on how we develop from adolescents into adulthood. That makes the book sound more serious than it is, but I wanted this review to show that the book has more depth than just a love story. The quality of the recording leaves something to be desired, it sounds like the reader is at a distance from the microphone, but it is worth putting up with for the sake of the book.
The story was fine but how does something with this lack of sound quality get released?
What did you like best about this story?
I loved the mesh of the two worlds and the love story that it provided that crossed the ages.
What does Marissa Hope bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I liked Marissa's melodic voice as it drew me into the story and painted the world for me.
Any additional comments?
This was an enjoyable listen for me and I am happy that I listened to it.
