SUMMARY: Their profound love for each other began with instant sensual and strong sexual attraction between them. Personal sacrifices were made. Overwhelming fears were conquered. The nature of promises were of a Happily Ever After. Can they keep those promises?
The BookViral Review: From its powerful opening chapter to a cracking denouement, THE ENGLANDS Book One: SOPHIE Lost and Found proves a riveting debut in a genre that far too often suffers from a lack of originality. With an undeniable aura of intrigue and suspense Winkler delivers a stylish plot that’s brimming with cliffhangers and a narrative that benefits from perpetual momentum. The best romance novels tell stories about characters in search of the extraordinary and here Winkler uses this premise to open up the vast, still largely uncharted terrain of providence and the human heart. Marshalled around a diverse cast of vividly realised characters she doesn’t overplay them but cleverly manipulates our expectations with the mood further enhanced by a captivatingly vibrant blend of romantic tension and mystery. At times it leans towards the melancholic, but in doing allows Winkler to explore the heady and elegiac combination of eroticism and intrigue that surrounds Sophie and Jamie and gives it an authentic and urgent sense of legitimacy which permeates throughout Winkler’s prose. In the overwhelming majority of books pages are simply turned as events happen on the page but in the best books, the reader is drawn to see events as though they are experiencing them alongside the characters and on this level Winkler certainly delivers.
A pageturner you’d be foolish to miss THE ENGLANDS Book One: SOPHIE Lost and Found has all the hallmarks of a bestseller and is strongly recommended!
