Arrows of Desire by Emma BlairMay 14, 2008 at 11:08 am | Posted in Books, Fiction, Mosgiel, Reviews | Leave a comment
Beth’s family, with father killed in war, and son taking over his role in the family, takes you through the emotions of young love, lads going off to war, falling in love; pregnancy, and then personal devastation.
Beth is disgraced, abandoned by family and must fend for herself and son. She has to find work to survive and while working, meets a Canadian farmer; whirlwind courtship, marriage and off to Canada.
One there, mysteries surround her husband and his twin sister.
You need to read this book to unravel all these mysteries, racial prejudices, violence etc.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and recommend this to all. You can’t put it down once started.
