I liked how the author does not subscribe to the one Soul mate theory of love The characters in the trilogy make decisions based upon uestions like Who will stand by me Who is loyal and steady not just who makes the fireworks go off first This is one conclusion to a trilogy that certainly did not disappoint I think when an author talks about how much their characters mean to them how devoted to the story they are in their author s note the reader can be assured of a assionately written story not something that was just thrown together in order to meet a deadline or to get a The True Story of the Bilderberg Group paycheck Brown s characters were all so vibrant strongerfectly imperfect and seemingly real each and every one truly came to life on the When I Grow Up (Tales From Foster High, page Thelot had the Arachne perfect amount of romance disappointment heartbreak intrigue and mystery tragedy and witty banter I laughed I cried I uite literally could notut it down I cannot Rock Lead Basics pick whom my favorite character was between Victoria Prudence and Rowena Each was a balanced mix of naive strong beautiful and relatable while each remaining uniue and taking the reader on a journey of self discovery All three books in the trilogy were fantastic and very well written The ending was heart wrenchingly beautiful Truly fantastic You know those books that you hate to leave the characters when the book has come to an end This was one of those books for me I have enjoyed following Rowena Victoria and Prudence through their trials and tribulations Each of them have strengths and faults that they discover then must learn how to deal with them I am overjoyed that everything worked out with each girl It shows that even though things don t always go aslanned you can and should make the best of what you ve got Yet again I joined my three Summerset girls PruPru Vicky RoRo as I just now decided to name them it s late I m than tired and I ve written over ten reviews so forgive me on their final adventuresAnd guess what this was so enjoyable and entertainingI was really immersed into these Lightning Over Bennett Ranch pages and tales of how WW I impacts life and livestyles ofoor and rich alikeKudos to TJ Brown what a great conclusion to the seriesThe characters really grew on me despite my initial feelings of boredom in book one Also I m on such a historical fic binge recently it s bananas The conclusion to The Luxe series is currently being read and then I have The Book Thief and Code Name Verity waiting Sri Sumarah, Pariyem dan Bu Bei plus a few other onesYAY This book started weakly and read a lot like Downton Abbey fan fiction There s an awkward attempt at seduction scene that I skipped right through It was very strange and oddlylaced but it made sense for the character at that time At first I thought I knew where the story was headed but halfway through it took a different turn and I was leasantly surprised I found
Myself NOT Wanting The Book To End NOT wanting the book to end way I originally envisioned it I liked the way it turned out It was bittersweet but nicely done and I think realistic The lot wraps up very uickly but not very neatly There are still some loose ends such as the fact that the story ends in the middle of the war I also wanted of Elaine s story She hints at things and claims she s never going to marry but never explains why She tries #Hard To Please Her #to Wilfred Owen (Routledge Revivals) please her without success but doesn t follow her cousins leads and forge aath for herself She deserved
plot of own because I found her interesting than Rowena and Prudence I liked the way the characters developed in this novel At first I hated Rowena and wanted to slap her but once she has her awakening she gets better Prudence continued to annoy me I wish she had just talked with Andrew instead of worrying and fretting She tried too hard to lease him and I felt like she wasn t doing herself justice I wanted to see her awaken a bit since the Global Corporations in Global Governance plot is called Spring Awakening Instead she continues on the same as always Victoria s journey is the most interesting to me There are obvious similarities to Downton Abbey but yet there are differences In the beginning of the novel she was naive and immature and I had mixed feelings about her I liked her and found her innocence refreshing yet she still seemed like a little girllaying grown up She comes of age during a difficult time and rises to the occasion admirably I liked the way she met her challenges and faced whatever was to come I did not like how she dealt with her romantic Angels in Harmony problems at first but it was allart of her character growth There are some gory hospital scenes and the aforementioned awkward scene Sketchy Behavior plus hints at what Prudence and Andrew do behind closed doors I still wouldn t hesitate to give this novel to an older teen Adults may find it a bit too cliched in spots and not fully fleshed out enough Still it was the best of the trilogy and I liked it well enough to give it 3 12 4 stars Book 3 in the Summerset Abbey trilogy It continues where book 2 left off Should not be read as a standalone book without reading the first two The book jacket said For lovers of Downton AbbeyT This was a good conclusion to an enjoyable trilogy While I wouldn t call it aage turner it was a light and easy read I was afraid that Brown would take the cliched route and have the three sisters en. Uma história de amor e amizade em tempo de guerraVentos de Mudança em Summerset Abbey é o final da trilogia ue arrancou sorrisos e lágrimas aos fãs da série internacional muito galardoada Downton Abbey Mas não só É ue esta saga ue conta a história de três mulheres e das suas. D up with their first #loves but refreshingly that was not the case I was inwardly wincing when World War #but refreshingly that was not the case I was inwardly wincing when World War conveniently started and there would be an easy out to take Prudence s sweet but not assionate husband out of the The Beauty of Believing picture and get her back together with Sebastian Even I was dreading Rowena getting back together with John who had acted in an awful and incredibly cowardly fashion in the second book It was aleasant surprise when all three main characters ended up married and happy but not necessarily with the Sticky Church person the reader would have assumed Majorrops to TJ Brown for that That being said I was a bit disappointed in the ending I wish there had been an epilogue Two second recap Spring Awakening is everything a Forbidden Love Unchained person could want in the conclusion to a trilogy it s beautifully written expertlylotted and completely immerses readers back in the world of Summerset Abbey for the final journey of Rowena Prudence and Victoria Full review Back in January I was experiencing a bit of a Witches of the Deep South post Downton Abbey slump So I googled around for books that were similar to Downton Abbey and stumbled onto Summerset Abbey One review later and I wasurchasing the book on Three days later I had read the book and was back to googling for the seuel Fortunately for me I uickly discovered that not only was Summerset Abbey going to be a trilogy but all three books were scheduled to be released in 2013 Yes TJ Brown is a writing speed demon Not only did she write all three Summerset Abbey books within a nine month Metro 2033 (Universo Metro) period she also wrote the YA book Born Of Illusion too Incredible right To make a long story short Iurchased A Bloom in Winter after it was released and loved it too So I decided to take a chance and see if I could get an ARC from Gallery Books for Spring Awakening Luckily for me the lovely Kristin at Gallery Books kindly sent me a bound manuscript in May and I absolutely devoured the book in one day This is the type of book that will make you laugh cry and be absolutely bummed out that the series has come to an end Plot overview WWI has broken out and Rowena Victoria and Prudence s worlds have been irrevocably changed forever Rowena Caught between an engagement that she isn t entirely sure that she wants and memories of a man who has taken almost everything from her Rowena throws herself into the war effort by embarking on Christianity piloting duties that even the most stalwart of men aren t always willing to take on Victoria After her incarceration Victoria is determined than ever torove her capabilities and independence She develops a talent for nursing which leads her far away from home further than she s ever traveled On the way she ll realize that there are some things from her old life which she may not want to lose after all Prudence Following a rocky start to her marriage Prudence is finally settling into her new life However her husband s decision to deviate her marriage Prudence is finally settling into her new life However her husband s decision to deviate his chosen career Run for Your Life (Michael Bennett, path into one that would activelyut him into harm s way rocks Prudence s marriage in ways that she never anticipated In the final Summerset Abbey book all three women must work toward securing the futures that they want and the dreams that they hope to achieve Things that worked Characterizations Just like the Alice-Miranda at Camp previous two Summerset books one of the most notable things about Spring Awakening are the characterizations of Rowena Victoria and Prudence They ve grown in leaps and bounds since the first two books They re confident in their abilities they have a stronger belief in themselves and they just feel adult if that makes any sense Brown has done a spectacular job of showing the transformation from the hesitant lost and reluctant women recovering from the loss of a father in the first book to the confident self assured women that we find in the third book While I loved how each of the sisters because let s face it they are sisters have developed throughout the course of the trilogy I was especially struck with Victoria s transformation in Spring Awakening Her activism in the third book becomes something that is far than just a hobby or interest that she does torove her strength It becomes a way of life and it s remarkable at how it only not only impacts her world and the The Red Queen: Sex and the Evolution of Human Nature (Penguin Press Science) (English Edition) people around her but also the reader serception of her I was also touched by both Rowena and Prudence s discovery of their ability to love They both learn through two uniue sets of circumstances that they aren t uite as damaged as they might have believed They are both capable of loving unexpected individuals and in the most unexpected ways The evolving role of women One of the things I love the most about TJ s characters verses say the characters on Downton Abbey is the fact that all three of the sisters have been consistently dedicated to exploring their own strengths From the beginning of the series Rowena Prudence and Victoria have clearly understood that they re bound by the confines of society However this also hasn t stopped them from furthering and working on their interests whether it s been flying healingnursing and women s rights or just general housewife responsibilities Rowena Prudence and Victoria take charge of their lives in a way despite the societal constraints in Lutas diárias no início do século XX apaixonou muitos leitores um The Association

BrownThe White Mans Burden particular is daring in a way that is fantastically shocking The historical details This is one of those times where I have to remain frustratingly vague because I don t want to give too much away But I will say that TJ does a spectacular job incorporating the historical details of theeriod using both real world

ending Without giving too many spoilers away I the ending wrapped up all of the story lines beautifully including addressing some of the overarching obstacles from the first and second book Teri also did a good job of making sure that there were enough interesting and outstanding story lines so that if she ever chooses to revisit the world in the future there will be lenty of interesting Carry Me Over the Threshold plots and issues to explore And finally General bookish things The writing One of the difficulties about writing a book with three differentoints of view is making sure that all three characters sound distinctive Brown accomplishes this spectacularly The differences between Rowena Prudence and Victoria are as clear as night and day Their voices thoughts and reactions to the world around them are distinctive and notable even in third The Courtship Basket person Not once did I think I think that the voices sounded the same and not once did I get confused as to whose narration I was reading Not that this actually happens when I m reading narrative voices which do sound the same but you get myoint Plotting I ve seen some reviews for Deuteronomy, Joshua, Judges, Ruth, 1 2 Samuel (The Expositors Bible Commentary previous Summerset Abbey books express concerns aboutacing However I Small Talk personally think thatlotting is actually one of Brown s strongest Accidental Pharisees points Brown is writing about an era in which women weren t allowed to do any of the explosive daring things that we can read about in contemporarysci fifantasy books Yet she makes simple day to day activities like going to tea at arospective in law s house seem exciting and daring It s incredibly impressive Things that didn t workThings to consider After thinking about it I would have loved for some further insight into how Prudence and her husband were adjusting to his medical condition and the new addition to their family However this isn t necessarily because I felt like Brown didn t write enough about the two of them It s that I was so interested in Prudence s evolution ass a character I could have easily read an entire book just about her family and their new life in London So any desire for development is basically me just being greedy as a reader HahOther than that I feel like all of the lotlines were wrapped up beautifully the characters all had well developed conclusions to their ersonal arcs and the writing was better than ever Final verdict I m fairly certain that Spring Awakening was intended as the final book in the Summerset Abbey series However TJ Brown has created a cast of characters in a world that s so rich full of love and life I and I m sure other readers like me would absolutely not object if the series were to continue Seriously Teri Write MOREI highly recommend this book for fans of Downton Abbey but I also recommend this book for readers who are just interested in reading a book with strong and intelligent female characters set against the backdrop of a Light Thickens (Roderick Alleyn, period where women were only beginning to realize their trueotential for the first time Disclaimer I received an ARC of Spring Awakening from Gallery Books in exchange for an honest review Thank you guys You rock After finishing Spring Awakening last night I woke up thinking about reading the resolution again I suppose that means I really liked the book but if I m honest I m not sure how realistic the resolution wasCould Victoria have stumbled upon Andrew on the front Could Rowena have flown over the Channel just when Jonathon needed her to I m not sureI do agree that hard times force us to face what we ve been ignoring so choosing to have Andrew come to his senses while Prudence and baby were on their A Multi-Site Church Roadtrip potential deathbed struck me as truth And having Victoria eavesdrop on Andrew and Pru s conversation was a great way to include Pru s resolution in Victoria s chapter Way to write TJ Brown The choices Rowena and Prudence made about love and forgiveness seem spot on as does Victoria s eventual understanding of her own heartNo I didn t shed any tears when I finished this trilogy but I did enjoy being there as these three girls evolved into women Thanks Gabby for the series recommendation This series has been amazing The characters are strong and uniue their lives interesting and full of challenges I was completely wrong in thinking that this book was a formulaic historical romance Three women each gets a book and her happily ever after right No And it was all the better for
