Violette Between is a uniquely written novel about love between a couple whose previous spouses have both died. The difficulty of letting go plays an important part. I enjoyed the contrast between Violette, a passionate artist, and Christian, a psychologist. Alison Strobel used an interesting blend of first person flashbacks for much of Violette’s story and third person present time for Christian’s. It was a device I hadn’t seen before and it was effective. The outcome of the story was sufficiently in doubt throughout the novel–not a classic romance at all.
If you think you would enjoy a uniquely literary novel of love, give Violette Between a try! Alison Strobel is a member of our Blog Alliance and as such I’d like to offer her personal congrats on this great book.
