Today's review is on Her Loving Husband's Curse by Meredith Allard
Loving Husband's Curse is the second installment in Allard's Loving
Husband series, and is just as much of a hit as the first. Written so
eloquently, the reader cannot help but be pulled into the story and feel
every emotion of the wonderful characters.
James and Sarah
Wentworth are finally putting their lives back together after averting
the discovery that James is a Vampire. But just because James' name was
removed from Hempel's list didn't mean that Hempel was giving up. In
fact, Hempel is back in book two with "evidence" that Vampires do in
fact live among us, and he is ready to name names bringing fear back
into their lives.
There is some happiness however during this
trying time. After struggling with the decision whether or not to start
a family, James and Sarah decide to adopt a child. But their joy in
their new family is short lived.
When the Vampires come "out of
the coffin", not everyone is pleased, and the fears and prejudices of
anything different begin to resurface. No one seems to know what to do
with the Vampires leaving James and Sarah to make difficult decisions
that will affect their whole family.
Allard's use of historical
events such as the Salem Witch Trials themselves, the Trail of Tears,
the mention of the Japanese Internment Camps, along with mention of the
Nazi Death Camps is a poignant reminder of how man has treated his
fellow man through the ages because they were different. It also; at
least in my case, leaves the reader questioning if we have in fact come
very far in this respect at all, and I love Allard for using this book
and this series to bring that into the forefront. We all need a
reminder of where we've been in order to not let the atrocities of the
past repeat themselves.
Her Loving Husband's Curse brought
questions to my mind, love into my heart, and tears to my eyes. An
exceptional read that will leave you begging for more.
