The Girl in the Gatehouse - Book Review

>> Thursday, June 16, 2011

The Girl in the Gatehouse. Julie Klassen. 2011. [January 2011]. Bethany House. 400 pages.

I actually got to sit and read a book for pure enjoyment since school has been out!  The Girl in the Gatehouse has been waiting for me and I for it.  It was worth it!  

If you are drawn to Jane Austin type books, this one is for you, but I, for one, am not - but still, I very much enjoyed it.  I became engrossed in the character of Mariah Aubrey and her companion, Susan Dixon and the many characters that intercepted into their lives.  

There were many plots and mysteries that slowly were revealed and knotted and untied throughout the book.  It was fun to try to figure things out and it was fun to be wrong time and time again.  

I liked the innocent romances, unlike the books that fall into our hands today.  So nicely written, this book is a book within a book within a book, within a book.... you will figure this out as you read yourself.  

I go and read bits and pieces of other people's reviews and they reveal too much of the books, if you ask me.  I say, give you a hint and let you go read.  I mean it - go get the book.  Right now!  It's just a click away on Amazon or   I highly recommend it.  There are very good Christian analogies and values hidden along the way.   Great summer reading out on the beach or hiding in your bedroom on a warm, lazy summer day.  Of  course, that's not where I'm writing this currently.  Of course not!  

Bethany House continually puts out wonderful books and I'm thankful to be able to get hold of this one.  Are you still here?  Go!  Shoo!  Go.  Buy. the book!  The Girl in the Gatehouse.
