Book:  Of Ink and Sea

Author: Clarissa Kae

Genre: Romance with historical and paranormal elements

THE BLURB

The Bristol Sea divides Cornwall and Wales—and sings an enticing tale to Sienna Rothesay, an English born, American raised photographer.  Since childhood, she’s fought the temptation to listen to its siren song.

When Ioan Waif, an enigmatic neighbor from her Welsh days calls her home to care for her ailing grandfather, Sienna is faced with an old myth that hints at a nefarious secret, linking her ancestors with Ioan’s.

To uncover the truth, she must walk the blurry path between legend and reality but with more questions than answers, she fears giving into her heart will cost Sienna her head.

MORE FROM CLARISSA

I was supposed to go to Wales for my 40th birthday which is this month January 2021. But COVID happened. Instead, I delved into Wales for a setting and never looked back.

MY REVIEW

Though written with vivid imagery and sweet prose, this story was not a good fit for this reader. I loved – j’adore – the setting #allthingsgreatbritain and the tragic connection between the two families.

But I couldn’t get past the mystic elements, seeing an image of someone long dead. I, too, love nature, and fully believe Father God speaks to us in dreams and visions and song. This story excluded God in this equation – at least I saw no connection.

The dialogue (this reviewer’s pet peeve) was sharp and bold, and authentic. True conversation, not scripted words.

For as much adventure as this story held, the current day story felt stalled to me. There were numerous typos and grammatical errors, and a handful of malapropisms.

All that said, I felt deeply Sienna’s unrest. Her sense of isolation, even – especially – within her own family. I longed to see her embrace her home and heritage – and happiness. I envisioned Ioan as rugged and dashing, and utterly handsome, and couldn’t wait for the two of them to calm the storm and embrace each other.
