Absolutely Lovely!

Vespertine was very well written. I loved the syle of Mitchell's writing and how descriptive she was. The words she chose and the time period fit perfectly with her plot/storyline. I loved this book and ended up reading it quite quickly, savoring each pages as if it would disappear too quickly. The story itself was very unique and found myself suprised at certain points along the plotline. This book invloved alot of relatable situations and found that this very well could have been real. I for one believe in higher power.

In Vesperine Amelia had everything until the visions came everyday at sunset. She say visions of things that were going to happen and it frightened her. She's sent away in the beginning of the story to find a suitable husband, but as her visions progress the more intense her life becomes. People beg of her service, asking her to tell them their future and so she does. She becomes friends with the girl she's staying with, they become very close and she herself finds a man she loves; Nathaniel. But as the visions began to change from sweet and innocent to vicious she's put to the test on what to do and how to keep her world from falling apart.

This novel was fantastic and I gave it 4 and a half stars. Mitchell definately knows how to write. Her ending was well formed and I loved how all the questions we had filed in our head through the book were answered, leaving the reader full and satisfied. I cannot wait to see what else is in store for Mitchell.
