And Both Shall Row

And Both Shall RowAnd Both Shall Row by P. David Hornik
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A beautifully written story...

And Both Shall Row by David Hornik is a wonderfully written and richly descriptive novel with brilliantly drawn characters and settings. The threads of storytelling are expertly woven in this touching and beautifully written romance of ‘life, love, time, change, and the irresistible power of an unforgettable, formative experience in the past.’ It’s a book will have you turning the pages from beginning to end. In addition, the characters are drawn with great credibility and conviction.

The book description gives a sneak preview: ‘Kenny and Colleen meet on a mountain lake as teenagers. They awaken intense energies in each other—both positive and negative—until the mix explodes, leaving both of them in a sorry state. But they find that what’s between them—whatever it is—stays with them as the years progress, and that the memory of those days at the lake doesn’t fade but keeps making demands on their understanding. This is a story, spanning 25 years and two continents, of life, love, time, change, and the irresistible power of an unforgettable, formative experience in the past.’

I enjoyed the story, character development, and dialogue. There were plenty of plot twists that I didn’t see coming and that added to the book’s mystique. When I stopped reading to work, I found myself wondering what happened in the book, and replaying parts of the novel in my head to see if I could figure more out. It has been a while since I enjoyed a book this much. It’s a first-class romantic drama with perfect pacing.

This was a fascinating and captivating read that had me immersed from the beginning. The story flowed from scene to scene with ease, and the author shows exceptional ability when it comes to storytelling. There are plenty of attention-grabbing moments in this page-turner that will take the reader on a mesmerizing journey.

Highly recommended and a well-deserved five stars from me. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
