Emma – There’s No Turning Back by Linda Mitchelmore
Today’s review is brought to you by my mum, Rachaell
Shell is a lover of books and can often be found reading her kindle or reading to her granddaughter. She loves the fact that both her children are avid readers, something they’ve been since children and knows that books can be enjoyed by all generations
It isn’t easy to look forward when the past is so close behind you
Life hasn’t always been kind to Emma Le Goff. She has had her fair share of hardship and now finally, her life appears to be looking up. She and her childhood sweetheart, Seth Jago, are set to marry and both believe that an idyllic existence, free from heartache, awaits them.
However, when they discover that the past is more difficult to forget than they could have ever imagined, Emma continues to be haunted by the mysterious circumstances surrounding her family, and Seth is hounded by a jealous ex-lover set on revenge.
Seth plans for their escape to Canada, but when the charismatic Matthew Caunter returns to Devon, Emma finds herself uncertain of whether a move to Canada is really what she wants …
Emma Le Goff is an 18 yr old who longs to be with her fiance Seth Jago, but unfortunately for the couple, local vicar Reverend Thompson has other ideas.
With him refusing to marry them because of their families past, the couple to decide they will have a wedding photo taken, evidence of a wedding that never happened.
Determined to live as man and wife, they tell their families that they married away from home.
But with dark secrets linking their past and secrets hidden in the present, can the couple survive even more lies.
Seth and Emma are both tortured but likeable characters and their love is put to the test in more ways than one.
I took an instant dislike to two characters, Seth’s brother Miles Jago, he is a nasty piece of work and the scheming manipulative woman who answers to the name of Caroline Prentiss.
With drama and set backs aplenty, this was a good read for a cold winters afternoon.
