Quickie Book Review – The Burning of Isobel Key by Jen McConnel

The Burning of Isobel KeyThe Burning of Isobel Key by Jen McConnel

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Very nicely done. The juxaposition of past and present were well-done, never jarring or hard to follow. And both time lines were brought nicely together near the end.

My heart ached for Isobel and all that befell her. I was drawn to most of the characters in a similar way. The interaction between the characters felt “true” and complex, like it should. Particularly, the interaction regarding pagan/ Christian beliefs was very well thought out by the author and added another layer of “realness” to the novel.

I’d recommend this novel to anyone who likes women’s fiction, light-historical, or paranormal romances.
