Linda’s Book Obsession Reviews “In Robin’s Nest” by Elizabeth Sumner Wafler for Suzy Approved Book Tours
Elizabeth Sumner Wafler, the author of “In Robin’s Nest” had written an intriguing, captivating and thought-provoking novel. The genres for this book are literary fiction, romance, and women’s fiction. The timeline for this story is set in the present and goes back to 1977. The story takes place in Washington, Paris, New York and Virginia, and some other areas. The author describes her interesting characters as complex and complicated. I love the way that Elizabeth Sumner Wafler tells her story and vividly describes her characters, scenery, food, and settings. The themes center around secrets, second chances, forgiveness, the importance of family, friends, love and hope.
Robin Hamilton is currently a successful attorney, a single mom with a beautiful daughter Lark and realizes after watching an event on television that it is time. On the TV screen, while watching a music documentary, Lark sees her mother in 1977 sitting on the shoulders of a handsome young man. Robin realizes that after all this time it is now time for her secrets to become revealed and introduce Lark to her father, Dean Falconer.
Robin met Dean in 1977 at a concert, and they fell in love. Tragic circumstances and timing prevented them from staying together, and now Robin knows she has to contact Dean. Only she hasn’t spoken to him in 35 years, and Dean doesn’t know that he has a daughter.
I enjoyed remembering the titles of music that were popular in the 1970’s and moving forward. Do you believe in second chances or true love? I would highly recommend this emotionally-charged and thought-provoking story.
