A Heart in Sun and Shadow by Annie Bellet

I received A Heart in Sun and Shadow by Annie Bellet via CLP Blog Tours. I am obviously a big fan of chick lit and women’s fiction, but everyone once in awhile I need to step outside my reading box and try out something a little different. When Bellet came to me about blog tour services, I really wanted to take her on. The synopsis was intriguing, and the first chapter had me pulled in. I’m really glad I took this book on, because it shows me that even if a book isn’t in my typical genre, it’s the writing that makes it special.

The story is set in ancient Wales, and follows three main characters: twin brothers Emyr and Idrys and Áine, a traveling wisewoman. Since the story is fantasy and magical and all those elements, writing a synopsis that will sound coherent will prove difficult for me, so I think I might try to skip that. It boils down to: Emyr and Idrys are cursed, then both fall in love with Aine and she loves them back, but in order to be with them the curse needs to be broken. Aine sets out to find the one who cursed the brothers so they can be happily together. I understand it might sound a bit strange – brothers sharing a wife, but this really is a true love story that actually had me tearing up at points. It seems to make sense in this magical world of Wales that the characters live in. There were some instances where I would stumble a bit in the fantasy chat, but overall a truly enjoyable read with a happy ending. If you’re looking to break away from the celebrities, mommy-lit, or even just a fashionable heroine, I would suggest you try A Heart in Sun and Shadow.
