Echoes In The Dark Reviews
Echoes In The Dark, Apt title.We don't know what's really happening for most of the book.Julien is the perfect golden boy who falls in love with a nobody Kerri. They get married and soon she is pregnant. Kerri is still a teenager and very insecure about his love. She can't understand why a Man like Julien will love someone like her, she thinks she didn't deserve it. And all her fears are turned into anger every time he as much as smiles at other woman. She was terrible , embarrassing him in public but he was always patient enough to understand her as if she were a child which infuriates her further. One day they have a similar argument when she pushes him too far and he admits he regrets marrying her in times like that. She takes off in his car, he joins her in passenger seat. There's an accident, he ends up blind. Kerri and the baby she gave birth to are presumed dead. After 9 years, when Julien is just recovering from his past. There comes a woman who wants to sell him a necklace that his wife wore on the day of her death. The woman admits that she stole it from a dying woman in the convent. All these years, H thinks his wife and son are burned to death in the car and he blames himself for not reaching early to pull them out of the car. According to this woman, His wife has been taken to a convent to give birth to his son. His son died due to premature birth and his wife died due to haemorrhage. What he doesn't understand is why was she not admitted in the hospital he was. When he questions his half-brother, he tells that h was admitted in the hospital but she refused to meet the hero and walked away and hence she was sent to convent for the betterment, she gave birth to a baby who died but she was very much alive but wants nothing to do with the H. Caroline Evan is interviewed and selected for the secretary post of Julien's elder sister. What she doesn't know is that it was all a well set plan. There is a block in her memory which she doesn't remember. All she knows is that she can't let anyone touch her even the doctors. She has nightmares of babies crying . Doctors told her that she was raped and the consequence was baby whom she killed. But she couldn't believe that she killed her baby and that she was raped.Then begins the actual plot. I was scratching my head. Intense, suspense, I was sitting on the edge. H believes she is an actress, h thinks she is his wife after all. Then everyone thinks she is psychic and assumes things, Everyone believes that hearing about H's wife she imagined herself in that role even H doesn't believe her. Heck , They confuse her so much that she starts doubting her own self. The plot only thickens further. We don't know what actually happened on the night of the crash, H visited the graves of his son and Kerri so he can't believe her. Meanwhile, There is someone trying to kill Caroline. After many many complicated twist of turns we get HEA. No spoilers , they will spoil all the fun. If you love dark-suspense novels , this is for you.
What a weirdly complicated book!When I finished it I still could not untangle all the info. The time frames were interloping crookedly and even in your best efforts you could not understand who knew what and when.I had this scary feeling that maybe I fried my brain with all that television and bumped my IQ down a notch so I could not understand this book. In order to test this theory I made my mother,the Belgrade university English literary teacher and programing SEO development specialist with her own firm that operates in the USA(and with that solely in the English language)read it.After she did, I asked her did she make sense of it all.She told me:'Where did you get this book? I feel like I read something written by the drunken child of Ann Radcliffe and Daniela Still.'All in all...a waste of my money! And anybody elses.
Wonderful, in that dramatic style of the 80's (although published in the mid 90's). The two are confined on an island, in the house because of a tempest, and there're some very intense moments of the hero, who's a well of patience and tenderness, a contrast that I love! I really have a big fall for heroes whose meekness and tenderness reinforce their power, strength and respectability. Julien is like that. But there're also moments of madness, totally out of his character, but that are minimized by the amazing moment of confrontation with his antagonist. What an adventure! After that, Julien's character loses some of his daring because of foolish feelings of guilt, but in general, the story is very engaging. Loved it.💗💗💗💗🌶️🌶️🌶️
4 Stars! ~ This is the compelling story of a man and a woman who come together, both with tragic pasts. Julien lost his sight and his young wife and the child she carried in a explosion. Caroline lost her past to something so terrible that she can't remember; her fear is that she really did leave her baby to die. Slowly they discover the truth of their pasts, and the evil betrayal that continues to manipulate them.Ms Wilson had me hooked right from the very first page. I just couldn't put this down until the very last page. The emotion is intense. The plot is filled with compelling twists and I was very pleased with how it was resolved.
This was an interesting twist on the regular "blind" romance, but again, it wasn't too hard to figure out they "mystery".
güzeldi....ben sevdim :)
