SUMMARY:

Forty-four-year-old Forrest Alderson isn’t at all sure of his motives for returning from self-imposed exile to Asher Heights, West Virginia, to see his hometown for the first time since he graduated from college. All he knows for certain is it’s something he has to do if he is to find out whether he can break free from the tragedy that compelled him to flee or whether he is forever doomed to be imprisoned by it.

The BookViral Review:

A novel about life, love and the events that shape us Old Mrs Kimble’s Mansion proves a genuine treasure of a read with Arnold confidently avoiding the romance genre’s many syrupy pitfalls.

This isn’t one of those disposable novels with a shelf life as short as its reader’s attention span. Or one that falls back on lump-in-the-throat histrionics. In Wyandotte Bound Arnold gave us a profound meditation on family and friendship and here he once again demonstrates real craft and ingenuity.

The aim of any romance novel should be to suspend reality and let readers fall in love with love and both narratively and stylistically Arnold achieves this by creating meaningful conflict, believable characters and a prevailing sense of emotional honesty that brings his characters to life. Not only are Forrest and Olivia likeable they are easy to root for whilst a liberal smattering of misdirection keeps us guessing till the very end!

It’s fair to say that Old Mrs. Kimble’s Mansion doesn’t follow a generic plot and is all the better for it. There’s little in the way of whimsy to distract us and Arnold’s heartfelt observations on betrayal are wonderfully captured in the contemporary textures of West Virginian life.

Another superb release from Arnold and a must-read for fans of romantic fiction, Old Mrs. Kimble’s Mansion is recommended without reservation.

Authors writing about prejudice and racism in literature

Whilst the issues of prejudice and discrimination are multi-faceted and complicated beyond belief, a key moment for me was the day I picked up ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’. Harper Lee implicitly drilled down the relative unfairness of human existence into my 12-year-old brain, creating a sense of outrage that has stayed with me throughout my life.
