My contemporary fiction book reviews of At Bobby Trivette’s Grave follows.
CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:
I am not sure where to start with this review. Firstly, let me say, author Donna D. Vitucci‘s, a talented author, however, At Bobby Trivette’s Grave was not the book for me. That said, I must also commend the author for a well-written and well-developed book. Vitucci created a deeply emotional story-line as she dove into the life of two families in small-town Paris, Kentucky. Secrets abound, along with regrets, and lives wasted. One action by each changed the entire structure of their lives.
In At Bobby Trivette’s Grave, Donna Vitucci demonstrated the futilely of carrying guilt and the destruction it causes. For me, the pace was a little slow for the first half of the book. However, it picked up in the middle. Vitucci gave detailed emotional background on the characters and developed them skillfully. Even though this book was not for me, I much appreciate the skillful refreshing writing, creative original story-line, an in-depth look into small-town Paris’ families. For the right audience, this book will be a winner.
