The First Life of Amelia Weston
The First Life of Amelia Weston is the debut novel of Author Amy Olinger, and I am now an avid fan! I loved the lyrical quality of the novel from the start. Opening in the year of 1601 in Reading England, the reader is introduced to Amelia, who’s a passionate, talented and powerful young woman. Tragedy and loss strikes her over the years as she grows into her power as one of the strongest witches in her community.
Soon years past with love gained and lost, and after being alone, Amelia meets Alexander who brings light and love back into her life, which she thought an impossibility. When faced with the possibility of losing her greatest love, fate intervenes and the two are reunited. But fate is fickle and the two are cast into a cyclical race against time. The question remains will the lovers remain united or be separated forever?
I truly enjoyed this read and I felt the writing held a haunting romantic quality which fit the time period in which Amelia lived. The descriptions and the steamy romance catapulted the reader into the character’s lives which caused me as a reader to become quickly invested!
Clear, flowing writing with great pacing. This was a wonderful debut novel that will leave the reader wanting more!
Recommended for readers 18+ due to some adult content, I consider this a must read for those that enjoy romance and historical fiction!
