30 minute scarf arm knitting
Sentence of Marriage (Promises to Keep, #1) by Shayne ParkinsonI HATED this book. I will never read this book again as long as I live. I am sorry that I found it and read it.
Why will I never read this book again? Why did I hate it and give it four stars? Two very good questions.
I gave this book four stars because the author created characters and wrote a powerfully emotional tale that impacted me so much that it pissed me off. A book that evokes so many emotions deserves four stars, or more.
If you are looking for a book that is light and fluffy or a cute coming of age story then you have the wrong freakin book.
I found that I vehemently hated four characters in this book. I wanted to severely beat them. Never once have I ever read a book where I hated so many characters. Its hard to choose exactly which one I hated more but I will start with Susannah.
Susannah is the step mother. She comes from a well to do family, is from the big city and is 25 (old maid age) when she marries Jack, the father. Jack left to go to the big city, leaving his kids behind to care for the farm and just shows back up in town and says, Hi, kids. Heres your new mom.
Jacks on my list, we have some issues. More on him later. Ever since Susannah comes into the family she bitches about anything and everything. She hates Amy, the daughter, and treats her like crap. Susannah is a manipulative bitch that I just wanted to punch.
Because Susannah is extremely unhappy with her life and her choices, she takes it out on everyone. So she gets this idea that she wants her brother to come out and stay with her. She thinks it will help her feel better.
Jimmy, is the second person of interest. Coming from the same upbringing and family as Susannah, you can only surmise that he is just as manipulative and conniving as Susannah. Well, you would be correct. Poor Amy, who is naive to the evils of the world, who is too trusting and who has a lack of parental supervision and education, believes everything Jimmy tells her and ends up taking the fall. Bastard.
Amys best friend is also her cousin. Elizabeth, lives in a near by farm and her father is Jacks brother. Sorry for the lineage but I just wanted to explain how this guy fits into the picture. Elizabeths father is a jerk. He jumps to conclusions and instead of supporting his family and becoming a better man and patriarch to his family, he just turns into this sexist pig who just shuns his own family and threatens Elizabeth to never see Amy again. Good call, Bozo.
Ahh Jack, Ive saved you for last. I guess I cant truly say I hate him but he truly made me mad. So Jack leaves his family and comes back with a horrid wife who completely tears apart his family. If he hadnt been thinking with his penis, then all this unhappiness could have been avoided. I think Jack truly believed that Susannah would be a healthy, helpful addition to his family. Why? becomes a mystery as it wasnt explained but really and honestly it was his penis. There were times in the book where I felt for him but really, he wasnt the brightest star in the sky but he tried. Jack does care for his children and he does come to realize that he made a mistake but he believes in his vows to a fault. I disliked Jack because he needed to just stand up and put his big boy pants on and deal with the ugliness that Susannah and her bastard brother caused. He needed to sit down and have a family (minus Susannah) counsel and discuss with everyone their options and resolve the problem. Instead, he resolves to ignore it and let Susannah step in and solve the problem.
This book was a tough read. Parkinson did an excellent job in character development. I found that although I hated the characters for what they did and how they treated each other, it made sense. This book is very real. It is very up in your face.
The reason I wont ever read this book again, is because life is hard enough. We all try our best and do what we think is right for us. We council with others and make the best decision we can with what we have. This book was exactly that. Choices were limited for this family but they did the best they could, even though I would have made different decision and acted upon things very differently, mostly with a violent outcome, I prefer fluffy, uplifting novels that arent like real life that arent a reminder of how life can be so cruel. However, after saying all that, I have to again acknowledge Parkinson and tell you that she did a wonderful job in creating real life historical drama. She also wrote some excellent passages of the landscape of New Zealand. She created great, albeit horrible, characters.
I got this book free on Amazon and had no idea what I was getting myself into. This book is suggestive but not graphic. There are some swear words.
