As you readers already know, well, I am sure you can guess by now that I have fallen madly in love with this book and this is thanks to the remarkable story that packs a glorious feeling but also the author, Elisabeth Cannell’s stunning literature. As I read Cannell’s book I was struck by her detailed narrative that perfectly describes every scenario and every setting. Cannell’s descriptions of the horse riding accident were one that I found gripping, a part of me wanted to turn away thanks to the descriptions of the pain felt by Lauren but another part of me wanted to keep reading because the literature was too good not too! That is the power of Cannell’s descriptive words; she managed to not only make me imagine every detail perfectly but also feel every emotion the reader felt and this is the true beauty of her literature.
As well as Cannell being a flawless writer of descriptions, she is also an excellent creator of characters as Lauren and Matthew are stand out and will inspire feelings as well as thoughts in many different readers. Twist of Fate truly is an emotive book that all readers will cherish and so I have no choice but to award this mesmerizing piece of fiction five stars!
