The Golden HourThe Golden Hour by T. Greenwood

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Date read:  October 11 – 14, 2017

Traveling Sisters Group Read with Jaline!  Thank you so much for a wonderful 5-star reading experience! I love it through these discussions I have become a much better reader!

3.5 stars rounded up to 4!

THE GOLDEN HOUR by T. GREENWOOD is a compelling, interesting, suspenseful, and an action-packed read that has us following along Wyn’s journey to find courage to face the truth of her traumatic past through the healing powers of art.

T. GREENWOOD delivers an impressive, atmospheric and descriptive multi-layered story here that is beautifully written with a dual storyline weaving together past and present seamlessly.  T. Greenwood’s style of writing is spellbinding.  She has such a way with words that really is extraordinary and so relatable to me.

This is a lighter read and isn’t necessarily a fast-paced thrilling read but the descriptive words used, the setting, and the symbolisms used throughout with the use of art was quite fascinating and enjoyable to read.  We both ended up at times being a little annoyed with some of the characters’ stubbornness and their unwillingness to communicate honestly with each other.  It seemed like they would rather walk away from each other than to actually resolve any of their issues which made it really difficult for us to empathize for them at times.  It does become more clear to us in the end but we still would have liked to have felt a little more emotion so we could relate better to the characters.

T. Greenwood is one of our favourite authors and we both have read a few of her books and we look forward to reading more in the future!

To sum it all up it was an enjoyable, short, steady-paced, quick and easy read with a satisfying ending. Would recommend!!

    I love Ms. Greenwood’s quiet, atmospheric style of telling a story and have read 2 or 3 of her books, including this one. I like to settle into a story occasionally that isn’t full of murder and mayhem 🙂

    Did you ever read Grace by this author? I thought that was a melancholy but sweet story.

    1. Hi Rita, I really like how T. Greenwood tells a story too. No, I haven’t read that one by her yet. I plan on reading Two Rivers soon. Have you read that one?
