I love unpredictable things, unpredictable books, unpredictable movies, unpredictable answers; anything, really. So, when I read the blurb of this book, I couldn't predict anything from it, so I gave it a shot. This book was really unpredictable, but not all in a good way.
Sadie Rose has lost her mother, eight years ago. She only remembers glimpses of her past life, the life when her mother was alive. She has lived with the Worthingtons ever since her mama died. Mrs. Worthington seems to care about her, and Sadie Rose loves the two servants, Aasta and Hans. That should have been enough, but is it?
When Sadie Rose discovers some photographs of her mother in the Wothington's house, she's shocked and determined to know the truth about her mother's death. What helps the most, though; is that Sadie Rose is beginning to remember how her life was like before, her glimpses are becoming more of memories.
So, Sade Rose starts on an unpredictable adventure to find the truth about her life, and to remove the covers on the lies she has been told her whole life. On her journey, she meets many new friends: Tiffany , Victor, and the lovable Owen. She also discovers many secrets about her life, and about her true family.
What has her family been hiding from Sadie Rose? What will she discover on her quest? Will she find true love in a hopeless wreck? Find out much more when you read this heart-wrenching story, Frozen...
I liked this book very much. Mary Casanova has written a story about self-discovery, betrayal, and the power of families. This story has a beautiful premise, the storyline is that of uniqueness, but I felt like the author missed some points in the book. Like: The descriptions were too overwhelming, they covered far too much of the book, and left no room for imagination.
Most of the characters were realistic, but some were two-dimensional. I felt like most of them didn't have true motives or reasons for what they were doing. Plus, I didn't like Sadie Rose very much, I didn't relate to her. I had no real idea why she were doing what she was doing. It was unaccounted for.
Although this book was unique and touching, I found a few aspects that weren't to my liking. This book might appeal to fans of historical fictions and contemporary romance. You will never find out if you like this, if you don't try it first. So go ahead, and grab a copy!
