The World of Alice D.

I'm here to express my deep love for literature through

reviews, pictures and everything else that comes to my mind while drinking coffee. Cheers.

P.S. I won't be adding books I read before 2010.

The Linnet Bird

The Linnet Bird - Linda Holeman

Read in 2011


This book was really good. It's adventurous, entertaining and heartbreaking with a developed and fully described main character. 

The story describes a life of a young woman, form childhood when she was raped, forced to sell her body to the moment she experienced true happiness and hardly achieved freedom in the arms of a beloved man and the moment she lost him.


She is a strong and courageous character who fights fiercely through life. But no matter, how strongly she fought for herself, life continues to beat her down. Her tragical life is what gives severity to this novel and makes it as good as it is.
