Having read Lorna Peel s Into the Unknown, when I saw the announcement about A Scarlet Woman, I contacted her for an ARC to read, and review, at my option My thanks to her for sending me a copy.I ll begin this review by saying, Someone contact the movie makers I want to see this story on the big screen This HR is one of the best I ve read As with her other book, Lorna is not trying to write a story to fit a certain mold or certain expectations, yet what she has created is a plausible realistic drama is that an oxymoron within its own right My detailed, no spoilers review is available HERE Here s a link to the book review trailer, though it s also included with my review I received a copy from the author in exchange for my honest review.This is a very different book in many ways and I loved it There are many things covered in the book that you normally don t see or if they are mentioned they don t play a major part in the story I never knew what was going happen next because something was always getting in the way for them, but also bringing them closer together Many shocking scandals, secrets, and happy endings throughout the book that keep you hooked Their love story intertwines perfectly with everything else Their love could withstand anything The ending was perfect and unexpected.Isobel is a very strong woman to have held her head high and came through everything that happened to her I admire her doing what she had to in every situation no matter how shocking it was and that she kept her head high She didn t let her father s words fully pull her down, but did need the right person to show her that she was worthy WIll did not look down on anyone and wanted to help those less fortunate no matter what I loved the way he tended to always be thinking like a doctor and how he could talk to people so easily no matter what He needed Isobel and much as she needed him at the time they met.This book does touch on many subjects that might shock some readers such as abortion, some characters sexuality, strong language, and things that could be considered erotic. RATING 4.5 A SCARLET WOMAN by Lorna Peel is a beautiful, gritty tale of love, despair, and learning to trust, set in Ireland in the 19th Century Isobel Stevens grew up in a harsh household where her father ruled supreme so when she finds herself seduced and abandoned, it is no surprise to find herself disowned and penniless Heading to Dublin, Isobel will do what she must to survive but on the night she meets Dr Will Fitzgerald, both of their lives will change forever Finding a different way to make ends meet, Isobel and Will start a beautiful friendship that will give them both what they are missing in their lives But life is never straightforward, and as obstacles and twists and turns try to throw them off their path, will they be able to find their way back to each other From the moment I saw the cover of A SCARLET WOMAN I wanted to read it and the story inside did not disappoint With strong characters who have been through so much, plenty of historical detail to paint a picture in your mind as you read, and a love story that will melt your heart along the way, A SCARLET WOMAN by Lorna Peel is a truly engaging and compelling story But it is also so much than a romance as there is a raw and tough quality to the story too, as the harsh reality of what life was like for so many women at that time is portrayed A SCARLET WOMAN by Lorna Peel is perfect for historical fiction fans I voluntarily reviewed this book from the author
