Debut author, Shirley Hoisington introduces us to her book, “Beyond Despair”, a novel about romance, love and loss:
Twins, sisters in love with the same man! Who will find true love in this tale of twists, turns and surprises? Jealousy... Sacrifice... Betrayal... This one has it all! Can Miranda find herself? Does Miranda choose the man of her dreams or her twin sister? Will anything be made right again…beyond despair?
This is a fun, exciting and touching story. Miranda makes important choices that put the needs of others before her own and sometimes suffers a great deal from the consequences of those choices.
This story is well written and very enjoyable to read. I was able to relate to all the major characters quite significantly. That is a sign of good writing. Another sign of good writing is that the book is easy to read. Easy reading is the result of hard writing.
The scene setting is excellent throughout the book, as a native Oregonian it was fun to see so many places I knew in the story. A jet boat ride on a wild river is an unforgettable experience!
The dialogue was a standout for me also, very natural and suitable for the different occasions. I laughed out loud many times.
The development of the characters was well done also. They seemed alive and lively to me.
I award 4.6 stars to “Beyond Despair”, the score would have been higher except for the large handful of spelling errors.
