A Reader's Opinion: BROTHERLY LOVE by Lorna Peel


THE BOOK

BROTHERLY LOVE by Lorna Peel

 

A READER'S OPINION

A wonderful historical tale of romance in 19th-century Ireland. BROTHERLY LOVE follows the story of Caitriona Brady and Michael Warner, but the book is about much more than that. I love reading books set in Ireland but I didn't know anything about the history of 1835, so I found it really interesting. The dialogue and the characters could have used a little polishing, but even so, my enjoyment of the story kept me reading. I liked both Caitriona and Michael, and the romance in the story is well done, but I really was interested in the history. I thought the author did a good job mixing the history into the story so it didn't overpower—it enhanced. This is one of those books where I feel like I'd be giving too much away if went into detail.

This is a good book worth reading, and is sure to be loved by readers who enjoy interesting history with their historical romance.
