Sinossi

An American Gothic Historical Romance

New York 1899. Emma Madding walks up to the door of a remote waterfront cliff house in upstate New York, and into the life of recluse Benjamin Stark. A typewriter girl, she is hired to transcribe his weathered journal and the memories his scarred hand can no longer write down. Stark is a rugged adventurer now back from the Klondike Gold Rush, where he found gold and tragedy, too.

With the public hungry for gold rush stories and guidebooks, he agrees to chronicle his adventures. But for Emma and Benjamin, working together draws emotions that neither can allow. Benjamin tries not to love Emma, for the truth of his past will drive her away. Emma longs for love, but she has her own secret. Love conquers, but cannot protect.

Forced apart, the two lovers must battle a world fueled by money and power.

4.0 su 5 stelle Not What I Expected 12 febbraio 2012

I don't think I will forget this one for a long time it was not at all what I was prepared for. I actually disliked the story itself because it gave me so much anxiety but it was so well written and the characters were so well developed that I had to give it 4 stars. There was so much sadness, betrayal and manipulation I was on edge most of the time. It was actually written as two stories rolled into one. His experiences in the Klondyke alternated with the current story so it could get confusing going back and forth. There is an unexpected twist at the end I would have prefered more of an upbeat HEA. It was worth the read especially since it was offered free. Happy Reading Enjoy.

The Typewriter Girl is an excellent book. I enjoy historical fiction, so this is right up my alley.

This is a love story that takes place in the late 1800s. Many horrible things happen in this book that probably would not happen today. Let's just say that Karma took care of one of the evil characters, giving me great pleasure!

I will probably read The Typewriter Girl again sometime. Get it; you won't regret it!

The characters were compelling, the plot was twisted and historically accurate, and I hated putting it down until I finished it. It was like reading about people I care about!

Emma is hired as Ben's typewriter girl in 1889. She shows up at his house, they have several exchanges where they trade guarded contempt, and yet within a couple of days they are smoldering with passion for each other.
Oh, dear. Turns out Emma ran away from an engagement to a stuffy British lord. And Ben had his heart broken (and his right hand shot through) in the Yukon. We are subjected to pages and long paragraphs of confused inner thought bemoaning their complicated plight.

Interspersed with this are wooden "journal" passages from Ben's time in the Yukon (the reason he needs a typewriter girl). These are about as exciting as a 5th grader's forced summer diary.

If the maudlin ramblings of cardboard characters float your boat, this may be the book for you. I've read a few historical romances that I've enjoyed. I was intrigued by the mention of adventures in the Yukon during the Gold Rush, and hooked by the gorgeous cover. Oh, and it was free. But a great cover doesn't make up for meandering, sophomoric writing about irritating people. The author doesn't show the reader what these people are like, she simply tells us. In spite of relentless stage direction (she moved her hand to the right and looked up at him, he stepped forward, waited a moment, and then ducked his head while he reached for her... that sort of thing), the author fails to paint a picture. She fails the POV test, too. Rampant head-hopping is a sure sign of a writer who hasn't bothered to learn the craft.

I pushed on through this cold wasteland as long as I could, but gave up at 35%. The blurb promises nothing more than the formulaic lovers-pointlessly-torn-apart-must-overcome-(contrived)obstacles. This is a mine long ago worked out. I'm moving on to a new claim.

Edited to add: Months after writing this review, I noticed the "gorgeous cover" I mentioned has been changed to a "Me Tarzan, you Jane" disaster that would have made me run the other direction instead of trying this book. At least the cover now matches the content. If the cover turns you off, the book is sure to.

Couldnt put this one down, lots of twists and turns, great plot and characters- you develop a real feeling for the heroine in this almost period set tale. Highly recommended, quick read.
