    1 thought on “The Burning Bride”

    1. 3.5 stars. Lawrence is still a masterful writer and I was still very invested in Hannah and those she loves, but when the books are read one right after the other the violence and injustice can just get to be too much. Or at least they were for me.

    2. This book was good, but it took a long time for me to read because I thought it was depressing. The settlers had little recourse to pay their debts, some people were greedy and cruel and happiness seemed to live in another country.

    3. The third book about the life of midwife Hannah Trevor in post-American Revolution Maine. This was my least favorite out of the three, but the book still provided some great detail about life in this time period.I didn't like that this book was choppy didn't flow very well. The narration was separated with journal entries or "testimonies" of towns people. They didn't contribute much to the overall plot and just were unnecessary.I did like the details about the time and the continuing story of Ha [...]

    4. ***SPOILER ALERT!!!Her third book into this series gave me a sense of "Thank the LORD I did not live in this time" which tells something about just how little "entertaining" Lawrence is doing. Yes, the prose is still worthy; yes, the characters are still top notch and the plot good. BUT. My patience is thinner. It's soooo dark and morbid. Will Hannah ever win? No. Really bummed me out.I doubt very much if I'm going to read the next book, Ice Weaver that takes up where her poor daughter is buryin [...]

    5. What I like best about Margaret Lawrence's novels is how she weaves a vivid, detailed sense of the time period (and a time period less well known than it should be, at that: the early decades of the U.S.). She reads lots of historical scholarship and distills it to create a realistic setting. This was my least favorite of her Hannah Trevor series, though; I found it hard to witness the repeated victimization of female characters, in the same ways, by villanous men.

    6. Not the best of the three books in this series but I still enjoyed it enough to be surprised at the solution to the mystery. It got a bit jumbled throughout the story because the the different "names" attached to the characters. Who was "Sheba"? "Leah", "Siwall"? Who is married to whom? I still think Book #1 (Hearts and Bones) is the best. And I can tell there will be a #4 book because of the way "The Burning Bride" ended

    7. Just OK. The narrative is rather chopped up, and the behavior of some of the characters is not very credible.

    8. For anyone that thinks everything was happy and (all the white) people were free after the Revolutionary War, these books will suggest otherwise. Life sucked, unless you were rich and connected.
