    One thought on “Hope in the Heart of Winter

    1. Corrie

      Well, that was short!Basically three scenes. One is of a group of 5 school friends reuniting for a weekend in Winter Manor after nine years. Clara and Courtney have been an item since school, Madge is married to a doctor, Evadne and Edith had something in the last year of school but have never spoken about it since. There's a bit of banter ending in rather gloomy thoughts about the war and the loved ones they lost in it.Then the scene cuts to the maid (huh?) and her pash for the milk delivery gu [...]

      This short story involves characters I read about in another Rebecca S Buck novel, 'Fragile Wings'. Clara and Courtney are devoted to each other and we find out that their relationship started at school many years before. They meet up with some other old school-friends at a country manor and we find out about Evadne and Edith's attraction to each other.Although I enjoyed the story it was just too short and left too many things unresolved. It needed to go further in depth as there is certainly en [...]

      I already knew that I'd enjoy Hope in the Heart of Winter because I'm a fan of the author's previous work. Buck has a way of capturing an era and dropping the reader right where she wants us and making us believe we're there. Buck has a great writing style and it never takes long for me to be swept up in the world she creates.I haven't read the book that these characters first appeared, Ghosts of Winter, but now I'd like to. This is a very, very short story capturing one evening but I felt for E [...]

      A very very short story, including the characters of Clara and Courtney from Fragile Wings. It's hard to rate this, because I'm not sure if the story stands well alone or if it's just thrilling to read about Clara and Courtney again. But in the long run it's a sweet little lesbian romance story, it has one hot sex scene, and I've become fascinated with how lesbian culture grew in that particular time period. This story furthers some of the understanding we learned in Fragile Wings. I would recom [...]

      I thought the cover to be very pretty, and the prospect of reading a free lesbian historical was definitely appealing.Judging from the blurb, I had thought this would be longer, though.I have only read a few pages—but since the whole story is only under 30, this was already 40%—and you know, that is so me, but I just can't bring myself to finish the book. I was so bored. Again.The writing itself was rather plain and uninteresting, and the plot was not intriguing.But: You should still just tr [...]

      A perfect little vignette that has pushed the novel it came from up towards the top of my To Read pile.

      Very evocative short story that I hope is just the introduction to a full novel down the road. I'll probably have to read Ghosts in Winter again to catch up.
