Never once did I find myself referring to the page number and that is a sure sign that this incredible book is a compelling piece of work that draws the reader in and captivates them to read it quickly!

Sila Long is a newly discovered author of mine, however, I am already obsessed with her literature because Long expresses many writing talents throughout her book, but her core talents I believe are her descriptive powers and her beautiful prose that is laced with poignancy and excitement. Sila Long’s literature managed to keep me intrigued as well as entertained as I raced through this book. It is the kind of book that is impossible to put down, and when I had to I longed for it! I wanted to be reunited with the story I had grown to love and the characters I had become invested in.

Sila Long is a talented and a well-accomplished author who has written an unforgettable novel that features heavily on its characters and themes. Long’s characters are superb, and I think every reader will be able to find an attribute they like in them.  They are believable, and their narratives jump right off the page and into the reader’s minds. This is another thing… Long has managed to create a vivid picture in my mind of the setting she has established. Sila’s sometimes long, descriptive sentences, captured my imagination and made me turn the pages like a mad woman!

Overall A Brush with Fate is an excellent, charismatic and compelling novel that is guaranteed to keep readers entertained and excited from beginning to end and so, I have no choice but to award this incredible book five stars!  Be sure to have a read of the preview below book lovers, you will not regret it!
