Today’s team review is from Karen, she blogs at https://mytrainofthoughtson.wordpress.com/
Karen chose to read and review Last Child by Terry Tyler
The book provides a greater insight into life after Harry Lanchester’s death. I will not tell you more about the story than shown in the Goodreads plot description. This would spoil the fun of reading this book yourself.
With Last Child, Terry Tyler has created an excellent sequel to Kings and Queens. Harry Lanchester’s death has not only affected his very different offspring; the lives of his friends and employees have changed as well. Last Child is a and gripping read with all too real characters. Terry Tyler carefully lets her characters evolve – a true art. I was drawn into the story right away, feeling like a close observer. This sequel confirmed my opinion on some characters; in some cases I gladly revised my opinion. Jaz, Isabella, Erin and their closest contacts are masterly portrayed. All other characters are equally real with all their virtues and/or flaws. Last Child is a great read for family saga and drama fans, readers who like parallels to history.
This is definitely not my usual genre. Despite that, I consider this – as well as Kings and Queens – as books to read again.
