Cascade by Maryanne O'Hara

Cascade: A NovelCascade: A Novel by Maryanne O'Hara
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

First of all, before I tell you how much I like this book, I would like to thank Penguin Group for giving me an advance copy of this great book. It is always nice to get a free book!

I really enjoyed this book. Maybe because I related so much to the main character, Dez. Her life and ambitions are so similar to mine and deep down; I wish that my future will be similar to hers. The characters were real and likable and sometime not so much. The author portrayed the time period very well and overall the book was believable.

The descriptions of Dez's paintings were vivid and made me want to see them in person if this would have been possible. Some parts of the book were a bit long and some side stories a bit derailing. But beside that, it was a great read.

This book will be available in bookstores on August 16th, 2012.

I'll be on the lookout for this one. I am just finishing up The Dovekeepers. It's really good! Thanks for the recommendations, G!
