Review- Scarlet Woods By Brooke Passmore


Scarlet WoodsBy Brooke Passmore

“No matter the distance, once a person is in love there isn’t anything that can stop them from falling.” ~Laura Hidalgo

Scarlet Woods was by far one of my favorite books of 2012. I was intrigued and mesmerized by the descriptions of Scarlet, GA past and present. I was beyond entranced with the writers ability to transcend the descriptions of 19th century and 21st century Scarlet, that I actually wanted to visit Scarlet to experience it first hand.

Morgan Westbrook is a native of Scarlet, GA at the tender age of 17 she has already experienced more than people should ever have to experience. Morgan’s life seemed to fall into a routine, which fell between the line of dull and monotonous. It wasn’t until she decided to go for a walk, that it changed Morgan’s life.

As for Danny Carson, he was like any other 19 year old young man: hardworking, loyal to a fault, and loved his family. Danny would do anything for his family even if it meant that he saw the bigger picture and believed that love doesn’t hold precedence when seeing the benefits for his family.

Imagine a connection that transcended time; that is exactly what happened to Danny and Morgan when they see each other for the first time. The question that remained was, what good is a connection when the boy who has captured your heart cannot reciprocate your feelings?

This book will have you on the edge of your seat the whole time and it was a refreshing and I loved how Brooke Passmore was able to bring the old and with the new. You will go through a plethora of emotions from angry and frustrated to swooning and heart aching. It was written beautifully and I recommend this book. This book was Sparring Stepsister Approved. ~Kismet
