2¢ Worth: Slightly broken and ready-for-repair Emily finds a diary (from 1943) on the second day of her visit to her great-aunt's beach house in Washington. While the story is definitely laced with romance, it was the mystery of it all that really sucked me in. Trying to figure out who was lying and why, propelled me to finish this book in one sitting. Lets just say Emily unearths a great twisted family history full of lies, lost love, unspoken truths, and unrequited love. Told in first person, with Emily periodically reading the diary entries, The Violets of March is a 4-star story best suited for those that appreciate dramatic love with their mysteries.
Wisdom: "And besides, fate has a way of bringing you back when it's time to come back."
Whippersnappers: Infidelity, child abandonment, promiscuity, and death.
Whine: One hotheaded character made me wish I could reach into the book and slap her. But don't let that hold you back. This read is worth it.
Thank you There's A Book for making this review possible.
