When I started this writing caper I decided to review everything I read. I posted those reviews to Amazon in the UK and US (you could in those days without having to spend $50 with them first! #JustSaying!) and Goodreads. It didn’t cross my mind to post them on my blog… duh! As I’m aiming to stick to a blogging schedule – oh, how we laughed! – and as I read desperately slowly I shall add in these retro-fitted book reviews when I don’t have a current one to post.
I was drawn to White Horizon by the beautiful front cover and was so glad I’d chosen it. The main characters for me were Daniel, Tina, Victoria and Linda and this book tells the story of their tangled lives and of the family and friends around them. Besides the main characters, which are well fleshed out, there are many others that Ruth skilfully handles, threading their lives in amongst the main storyline. I really grew to care for the characters and what was going to happen to them in the wonderful setting Ruth had created for them. I won’t give any spoilers but this is a tender and unexpected love story, warm and emotional with sadness and light in just the right measure and I didn’t want to put it down.
