I bought this book because I remember the name because people didn’t like it and when I got my hands on it, I knew I had to have it.
What is on the back of the book?
Born into the lap of luxury and comfortable in the here and now, spoiled, tempestuous Tamara Goodwin has never had to look to the future – until the abrupt dead of her father leaves her and her mother a mountain of debt and forces them to move in with Tamara’s peculiar aunt and uncle in a tiny countryside village. Tamara is lonely and bored, with a travelling library as her own diversion. There she find a large leather bound book with a gold clasp and padlock, but no author name or title. Intrigued, she pries open the lock, and what she finds inside takes the breath away. Tamara sees entries written in her own handwriting, and dated for the following day. When the next day unfolds exactly as recorded, Tamara realizes she may have found a solution to her problems. But in her quest to find answers, Tamara son learns that some pages are better left unturned and that, try as she may she mustn’t interfere with fate.
What did I think?
It sounds very cool, doesn’t it? Well it wasn’t much about the dairy at all and with knowing that going in didn’t make me disappointed. I love the idea but it wasn’t much about that however I loved it, every single bit of it.
It had humour, doubt and love in all the right places. I have grown to like Tamara not only because she has a good heart but also because I understand. She hurts people with words without wanting to. She is not a girl but she is also not a woman even though she wants to be, badly.
The book also has a bit of crazy which makes it even more exciting. It’s a good book, I recommend it. It looks beautiful but the pages, the words that make it special. Read it, it’s worth it. It gives of a good message and was an easy read.
