STORY-LINE RUINED AND REDEEMED BY BREE WOLF:

Lady Charlotte Frampton and Viscount Sebastian Campbell, future Earl of Weston, have starring roles in author Bree Wolf‘s Ruined and Redeemed.  Charlotte had everything a young girl could want;  loving parents and a bright future.  However, one disastrous night ruined any chance she had at happiness and changed Charlotte into a monstrous imitation of herself;  doing awful deeds she never expected herself capable.  After heinous events, Charlotte changes her name to Lotte and becomes a companion to Lord Ashwood’s sister.

Sebastian Campbell returning from a tour of the continent, finds his sister wed to a monster;  given in marriage for greed and social position, his father will pay for what he has done.  Angry and undone, Sebastian travels to Lord Ashwood’s;  where he meets Charlotte/Lotte.  Sebastian decides to hurt his father in the worse way possible.  He knows marrying Lottie will reap the repercussions against his father he so desires.  As a lowly companion, with no social standing or breeding, he hopes this will be the death of his father.

But life never runs as smoothly as we plan and Sebastian finds his vengeance must take a back seat to protecting his sister, Victoria, from the monster his father wed her.  Lotte’s past is not as far in the past as she would wish;  it comes to haunt her once again.  Can a marriage beginning under such circumstances stand a chance?  Will adversity bring them closer together or tear them further apart.  My historical Regency romance book reviews of Ruined And Redeemed follows.

CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:

Author Bree Wolf created an intensely emotional book in Ruined and Redeemed.  I don’t think I have ever felt so sorry for anyone as I did Charlotte.  From Wolf‘s vivid writing, I felt Charlotte’s guilt, pain, fear, and absolute devastationWolf‘s insightful story-line revealed the harm emotional and physical trauma can cause to our mental health; resulting in the person becoming someone they do not recognize as them-self.  As Bree Wolf developed Charlotte’s character, I found myself in tears.  How could anyone live through all Charlotte survived and ever be the same again?  As Wolf brought Charlotte from the abyss she had lived in for three years, she is like the Phoenix rising from the ashes; maturing her from a soul shattered replica of living to a woman of value.  Will Charlotte find redemption?

CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:

First, let me say, if you have not read Charlotte Symonds books, you are missing a tremendous treat.  Each one’s filled with drama and deep human emotion.  Some Other Time’s no different!  Grab the tissue box as you begin this wonderfully crafted contemporary fiction. Few authors grab me and almost wrench my heart from my chest, as Ms. Symonds does; with a box of tissues and a pot of tea, I always read her books straight through.

That said, I must say, what a heart breaking emotional story-lines revealed as each character tells their story;  this is an
