I liked this book.
Some authors make reading historical effortless and Tamara McKinley has to be one of them. Good storyline for a novel. Paris, a Spanish war, love with a twist of secrets. A star to the storyline.—★
The main character Anabelle is someone you'd love! From warzones to battles of the heart, you'd be rooting for her character all through. It helps that her point-of-view has this contemporary fiction bite to it.—★★
The locations are enchanting. A nice historical to help you lose your self in Paris 1930s and the warzones of Spanish lands. Tamara Mckinley gives the setting loads of character.—★★
Speaking of characters, I had some all-time faves! There was Aline who reads ... like one of those (cuckoo) psychics waving the giant sleeves of their tunics to beckon you in to their strange homes (—albeit a psychic you love!). You'd also love Henri and Etienne (—So much), two French boys who play a larger part in convincing Anabelle to go for war and one succeeding in conquering her heart. A star to these and all the other superb characters I can't mention (including one obnoxious, bad tempered Parrot).—★★★
Echoes From Afar is available on Amazon. Get your copy!
I recommend this novel to anyone who loves a good historical (or not!). Anyone who can't drop reading books about 20th Century Paris (without many tourists) would love this. Plus, if you are a fan of Tamara McKinley, I don't believe this is the novel that would get her disappointing you.
My work not done here. Off to post my review on Amazon and Goodreads.
