Readers will love visiting the glorious setting of Idensea, with beautiful architecture and delightful excursions, like the Sultan’s Road, that could rival Blackpool or Brighton in its charm. The Typewriter Girl takes the reader to visit this small community on the brink of change and places within that idyllic setting the story of a remarkable young woman determined to forge her own destiny.
I loved this book.
I really wanted to like this book. The cover is gorgeous and the premise sounded intriguing and if something is compared to Downton Abbey, I am there. Unfortunately, this one falls very flat from almost the very beginning. Betsey isn't a character I remotely cared about. While I think the author wanted to show her as a feminist and someone who disregards social mores; she had no redeeming qualities. There is use of the F bomb that seems out of place. I'm assuming that my review will most likely be in the minority, but I really can't recommend it. Thanks to my library for having a copy I could borrow so that I didn't have to regret buying it
The book was okay – but not one of my favorites.
