The Echoes of Love by Hannah Fielding


The Echoes of Love
by Hannah Fielding


ebook, 423 pages
ARC from the netgalley

finally finished reading the last book of 2013, although I still have other 2 books which is currently reading, but this ebook became the last one I finished reading and will be the first one I review for 2014…

I got this ARC from the netgalley, the one which already ready to read, since it has published, right? I'm new to the netgalley, I was end up registering due to Gabriel's Redemption Blog Tour, and when I tried to request a few other ARC, my request was always denied, until a friend of mine told me that I can easily read the one that already published…

well, I caught up with the cover, such a mysterious beautiful woman wearing a mask… I added it on my library and then I forgot that I have it… until I remembered that I should read and wrote a review about it for a response of the ARC…

it's quite hard to read the ebook, with the lengthy detailed of descriptions… every descriptions… and the story actually should have been interesting with the beautiful background of historic Italy especially Venetia… but I just can't help myself to keep on reading those boring detailed of descriptions...

I tried to focus hardly, but the dragging of detailed description have made skip so much…

the story was about Venetia Aston-Montagu, a daughter of a noble Englishman, who lives in Venetia as an architect specialist of historical building restoration. she met a man, Paolo Barone, and became intensely falling in love with each other. at first, Venetia denied her feeling because of Paolo's reputation, but at last, she even agreed to marry him, when a sudden news has opened their hidden story…

there are some intrigues of another man, another woman, too protective and loving father… a lost memory, chinese-future-reader man…

because of the background was in Italy or Venetia to be exact, Venetia speaks fluent Italian, but the ebook's in English, with so many Italian which I dont understand… I must be romantic for some people, but for me, it's full of annoyance… I hardly understand the English, which I found to be to much flowery… added by the Italian… Oh mio Dio… XD

it quotes a number of Italian folktales and a number wisdom quotes... however, I don't know I just lost interest of them in this story...

I just will give it 2 out of 5 stars, for I din't hate it… it's just too dragging detailed… maybe it's just not the kind of my cup romance… ;-)


ps. this review will be included for Lucky No.14 Reading Challenge - Cover Lust
