    1.

    2. B- at AAR, so 3.5 stars here This month’s TBR challenge, reading one of the classics, had me scratching my head for a little bit. Did I want to reach for one of those books that could be considered part of the romance canon(to the degree we have one), or did I want to pick a classic trope or author? In the end, I decided on Seven Tears for Apollo. When we start talking about old school romantic suspense or gothics online, certain names tend to pop up. Mary Stewart, Victoria Holt, Barbara Micha [...]

In fact, this exceeded my expectations a solid story, well-developed characters, plot twis [...]

    4. This must have been a rather risky book for its time (1963), as there was much more of a stigma attached to mental illness than there is today. Falsely committed to a "nursing home" before the book starts, Dorcas has learned to cope by tamping down her emotions and appearing to go along with the wishes of her husband and his foster mother; the alternative is to be separated from her 3-year-old daughter as an unfit mother. Unfortunately, this comes across on the page as a too-passive heroine who [...]

    5. The plot is taking place in Rhodos and I enjoyed really a lot the descriptions of the surroundings and the small towns. The book has the aura of the 60s and I am pretty sure that Rhodos is not like this anymore unfortunately. The plot itself is a bit strange. It becomes maybe a bit tiring with the constant psychological fight between Dorkas and Fernanda or her husband. I am not sure if I liked it or not. I had a strange taste in the end. I enjoyed the presence of Johnny Orion, as he was the most [...]

    6. Dorcas Brandt is attempting to recover from tragedy she has experienced, part of which landed her in a nursing home, for a time, because her husband convinced everyone of her mental instability. All she wants is to get her life back on track and take care of her four-year-old daughter. After some unnerving events, following her husband's death, she travels to Greece, but these occurrences also follow her, and it is up to her to decide whether to give in to self-doubt or solve the mystery of thes [...]

    7. What do you do when you think you're finally free from an abusive relationship, but there is someone watching you? And what do you do when you can't trust the people who are supposed to be helping you?

    8. I did not really like this story very much, it just did not capture my interest like many of her other ones.

    9. You'd need a head made out of marble like the artifact the story revolves around in this sub par piece of pulp not to see the "twists" lined up like so many picturesque columns by about page 3. It takes place in Rhodes. The child in constant jeopardy is more than tedious. Descriptions of Aegean skies and full skirts bordered with Greek key patterns abound. I almost want to give it two stars for camp value but I shan't.

    10. I read this first when I was a young teenager. I remembered the descriptions of Rhodes, but I didn't remember the plot. I actually liked it, and I think this is one of the better things I've read this summer. Maybe I'll go back and re-read other Whitney books.
