  • Fails in the execution

    Lucinda and David were childhood friends, but they had a falling out and haven’t seen each other for four years. Now, Lucinda asks for his help to discover the ending of her favorite serial romance after the author’s sudden passing. Under the not-so-watchful eye of Lucinda’s chaperone, they set out to discover the fate of the main character. Will Lucinda discover the end of Eurydice’s story? And what about her own story? Will Lucinda get her happily-ever-after? Is that even what she wants? The story is told from the points-of-view of Lucinda and David, so we get to see things from both the female and male perspectives in a time when women were to be seen but not heard. Lucinda is a modern woman for her time, with a love of numbers, a desire to work for her father’s accounting firm, and a disdain for social conventions and marriage. This book has all the right ingredients: a strong and intelligent female lead, a handsome and supportive male lead, a story within a story, events taken from history, and the inclusion of women’s rights issues. Unfortunately, it fails in the execution. The main flaw is that the author tells us too much, rather than letting us see it for ourselves. In addition, while some real historical figures are mentioned, their inclusion feels forced, with the author unrealistically introducing them by their full names. Also, in the end, everything wraps up a bit too easily. I received this book in return for an honest review.
