A MULTI-LAYERED LOVE STORY — A Review of “Courage of Fear”

Courage of Fear

I read Courage of Fear very quickly during my recent vacation, and as I turned to the final page, I had such mixed emotions that I thought about the characters, the events in the story, and wondered about “what might have been” for days afterward.

And then I puzzled over the meaning in the events. The author takes us between the past and the present with style and grace, gradually revealing the love story even as the relationship unfolds to its very sad conclusion. Later, however, I found that the ending could be perceived in many different ways.

A true measure of a book lies in its ability to capture the reader, hold his/her attention, and lead to great depths of thought afterwards. This story succeeded on all counts.

  1. It’s funny, isn’t it that we always want a happy ending in our books…but when that doesn’t happen, they are more memorable!

    Strange how our minds work…but I still would have “enjoyed” reading an entirely different ending!

    Best,
