Charles
Love Buries a Spring Bird Reviewed By Divine Zape for Readers’ Favorite Love Buries a Spring Bird by Charles Forgrave is a beautiful love story with a lot of entertainment for readers. Set in a colorful and remote village in Michigan, readers encounter two compelling young characters, Cortney and Jackie, whose attraction to each other has no bounds. The reader is swept up in an emotional fire of love that carries the two along until, moving to Saulte Ste Marie, they are compelled to face reality and challenges that wake them up and force them to reexamine the depth of their love. Do they have the strength to go beyond innocence and the trials that threaten to break them apart and rediscover what is most essential in the art of love? Charles Forgrave’s narrative is exceptional, done in a first person narrative voice that is warm and charming. From the start of the novel, the reader is seduced by the author’s smooth and polished writing, the ability to integrate details into the narrative without distracting the reader, and the skill of unveiling emotions and thoughts that are almost hidden in characters. I fell in love with the dialogues, which are at the same time witty and plot-driven, focused and natural. The scenes are beautifully written and there is no confusion when it comes to points of view. The pacing is perfect for this kind of novel, but what had me utterly engrossed was the author’s treatment of character. Jackie and Cortney are well-explored and the supporting characters come out beautifully in the narrative as well. Love Buries a Spring Bird features the writing and the storytelling craft peculiar to the masters in the genre. Read more
