Review-Angel and Apostle

This book...WOW! Beautifully written and such a wonderful read. I can't describe how beautifully Deborah Noyes uses words. I devoured each and every word in this book. Noyes is quite masterful at catching your eye from the beginning and holding the attention til the last word. I couldn't stop reading this book!

I felt that Pearl as a character was a living breathing person who was neglected and tormented by her mother's past. She was treated as a little devil for sins that were not her own. She was teased and segregated by her peers and the one person whom she needed was frigid to her. I felt sorry for her and wanted to wrap her up in my arms and let her know she was okay. Cheesy as it sounds I really felt for that little girl. Of course she grows up and has her own issues to deal with but Pearl as a child is someone that demands sympathy.

I loved reading Pearl's story, from beginning to end I was completely in awe. The characters develop and change so beautifully. I really cannot say anything else other than this is a wonderfully written, well crafted book that I would highly recommend. Deborah Noyes has created a masterpiece in my opinion.


  1. Great review, I never heard of this book...I'll be adding it to my wishlist, thanks :P

  2. Thanks for commenting! This book has instantly become one of my favorites! :)

  3. Just started this today, even though I've had it for two months! I'm only on page 7, and I'm so impressed with Noyes' writing. So beautiful. I didn't read your review but will come back later to read it after I'm done. Just want to avoid spoilers and I want to go into the book with my head clean of other opinions. But based on your comment above, it looks like you loved it!
