From the author of the beloved New York Times bestselling novel The Little Book, comes a novel about a love that is capable of bridging unfathomable distances. Recently returned from the experience of a lifetime in fin de siècle Vienna, where she met and tragically lost the first great love of her life, Eleanor Burden has no choice but to settle into her expected place in society, marry the man she is supposed to marry, and wait for life to come to her. As the twentieth century approaches, hers is a story not unlike that of the other young women she grew up with in 1890s Boston—a privileged upbringing punctuated by a period of youthful adventure and followed by the inevitable acknowledgment of real life—except for one small difference: Eleanor possesses an unshakable belief that she has advance knowledge of every major historical event to come during her lifetime. But soon the script of events she has written in her mind—a script described by no less than Sigmund Freud as the invented delusions of a hysteric—begins to unravel. Eleanor Burden, at once fragile and powerful, must find the courage of her deepest convictions, discover the difference between predetermination and free will, secure her belief in her own sanity, and decide whether she will allow history to unfold come what may—or use her extraordinary gifts to bend history to her will and deliver for her the life she knows she is meant to have.
First, I must say I think this one was better than the authors first book, The Little Book, I loved this one. There are so many reason's I liked this one so much. I couldn't get enough of these characters. This is a book that I could read over and over again.
Mr. Edwards is a writer who blends every aspect of this story together perfectly. He brings us characters we fall in love with and a plot that holds you in your seat till you are finished reading.
I really don't want to give to much away of the story, but I want to say that I love how he blends in the historical characters into this book. This book is filled with twists and turns that I didn't see coming and that always makes for a great read. This is defiantly a book that keeps you on your toes and thinking the whole time while reading it. Mix all this in with well developed characters and you have this story to a tee.
The Lost Prince is a well written piece of art! Beautifully written with flowing words. I can't wait to read the next book by this amazing author.
