84. Linda Gillard - Star Gazing

I found this an engaging read even though I didn’t always feel sympathetic towards to central character. The writing is rich and evocative although a lot of the musical references went right over my head. Highly recommended to anyone who enjoys good writing, detailed characterisation and unpredictable romance.

Thanks Laura for blogging about STAR GAZING. I'm the author. :-)

You make an interesting point about Marianne not being sympathetic at times. Publishers get anxious if authors depict their protagonists as less than loveable, but I've always thought readers can cope. Jane Eyre wasn't exactly Miss Easygoing. ;-)
