REVIEW: THE REDEMPTION OF JULIAN PRICE BY VICTORIA VANE
The Redemption of Julian Price by Victoria Vane
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars
A product of circumstance, few people took the time to look behind the reckless behavior of Julian Price. Condemnation and judgement were constant in his daily life. For those who took a chance at getting to know him, it was easy to see the boy struggling to become a man needed guidance and love beyond all else. Henrietta knew what fear and anxiety felt like. In her youth she was carefree and happy. Maturity brought change and loneliness that left her on the outside looking in. The Redemption of Julian Price is a coming of age love sonnet that explores the insecurities that have been breed by carelessness, guilt and neglect. I received an ARC of this story in exchange for an honest review. Ms. Vane allows her readers to learn about life, love and temptation right along with her characters. There is almost an innocence about these two as they reacquaint themselves with each other as mature adults. A fluctuating tempo threw me off in the beginning but I enjoyed these two together despite that. My rating: 3.5
