The Antique Love by Helena Fairfax

Image
Antique and romance go hand in hand in this gentle story about blossoming love and not settling for the second best.

The Antique Love begins in an awkward note as first meetings go. Perhaps, in part, due to its jerky momentum best displayed by our heroine with her romantic imagination going on full throttle only to have her bubble burst. Apparently our so-called cowboy is not the swashbuckling, lasso in hand, riding into the sunset kind but a man of finance. Yes, with as much romance as there in numbers.

It was only after the first meeting that things become quite engaging as we get to know each of them through a succession of meetings. As Penny refurbishes Kurt's new dwelling in London, they settled into a comfortable state and slowly Kurt gets drawn into her dreamer ways.

We see Penny become more and more adorable most especially in how she sees beauty in old things and in peoples' hearts. She is the type of person one must look closer to find what a gem she is, just like ho…

Nightbird by Alice Hoffman

Image
"Some things could only be found in Sidwell it seemed: pink apples, black owls, and my brother, James."

Books of Alice Hoffman never fail to put a dash of magic to an otherwise ordinary and banal day. To get lost in her world with its spellbinding story and fantasy intertwined, as denotes her books, is always something I look forward. So when Nightbird recently came out, I was pleased to grab a hold of it (and ignored my reading list by putting it first).

This is something new, for a start, from her other books I've read. It is like a children story told at bedtime. Yet, I didn't mind and find it very much enchanting. Magic and childhood always go hand in hand and I refuse to have my sinister adulthood rear its sarcastic head.

In a lot of ways, I believe there is a Twig in all of us; in her interests, awkward bearings, and insecurities. That all we needed is someone who could help us bloom, coax us out of our shell and stick with us despite the odds. I loved all the …
