by Nora Roberts.
When the Lusitania sank, one survivor became a changed man, giving up his life as a petty thief – but keeping the small silver statue he lifted, a family heirloom to future generations. Now, nearly a century later, that priceless heirloom, one of a long-separated set of three, has been stolen. And Malachi, Gideon, and Rebecca Sullivan are determined to recover their great-great-grandfather’s treasure, reunite the Three Fates, and make their fortune.
The quest will take them from their home in Ireland to Helsinki, Prague, and New York, where they will meet a brilliant scholar who will aid them in their hunt – and an ambitious woman who will stop at nothing to acquire the Fates.
It’s February and due to my love of the genre, I’m focusing this month on the romance genre! I would be remiss if I didn’t include of the greats of the genre, so here is my Long Lost Review of one of my favourite Nora Roberts books.
Three Fates was a double whammy for me, I love romance novels but I also have an interest in Greek Mythology. Of the gods, the ones that were always a favourite of mine were the Moirae, or the Three Fates. So this book not only combine my love of romance and mythology but also featured my favourite goddesses!
From what I remember, the Three Fates was a suspense and action filled read. There was a focus on history, what with the Three Fates being involved but also the sinking of the Lusitania. I do recall that the book jumped all over the globe trying to find all of the statues, and that I really enjoyed all of the different locations.
I did a massive book cull a few years ago, and sadly a lot of my Nora Roberts books were donated and culled as I didn’t feel I would read them again. However, of all the books that I did get rid of Three Fates was one that I kept. I’ve always wanted to give it a re-read and writing this post has reignited my desire to read this book 😊
Are you a blogger who keeps telling themselves you’ll get around to writing reviews, but then don’t. Do you write ‘review to come’ on Goodreads only to let them languish for years? Well then, the blog feature ‘Long Lost Reviews‘ is for you.
The aim of the blog feature is to start tackling your review backlog. Whether it’s an in-depth analysis of how it affected your life, one sentence stating that you only remember the ending, or that you have no recollection of reading the book at all. Let’s tackle your review backlog and dig up some long lost reviews!
If you are interested in participating: post on the Second Thursday of the month, you are welcome to use the above icon, and all I ask is that you include a link to this post or to my blog. Thanks and happy writing!
