Book Review | Ruth Finnegan | Black Inked Pearl

Black Inked Pearl: A Girl's Quest

I received this book for free from the author. This book was sent to me through Bostick Communications. Ruth Finnegan, the author, sent me this book in exchange for an honest review. 

Author: Ruth Finnegan
Title: Black Inked Pearl
Genre: Romance

Synopsis: An epic romance about the naive Irish girl Kate and her mysterious lover, whom she rejects and then spends her life seeking. Beside an African river, Kate realises both her emotions and her passionate and consuming love for the man she rejected. The story becomes more mythic and timeless as Kate seeks her lover through Heaven and Earth, Eden and Hell. Rejected in her turn, Kate waits in the dust outside the closed gates of Heaven where her lover finds her only to be rejected again. Through an ultimate sacrifice by him, they reach Heaven, but Kate still has to accept his sacrifice and so find herself - a pearl. The novel, born in dreams, is interlaced with the eternity of love and the ambiguity between dream and reality. 

Review: I would like to thank the author for giving me the chance to read this book. This book was an interesting read even though I am not a fan of romance books. At first I struggled to get into this book but I am glad that I stuck with it as the further I read the more I enjoyed the book. I would recommend this book to any lovers of romance stories and only if you can stick with a book that is difficult to get stuck into. However, I would say to check out other reviews as I am sure that people will have enjoyed this book and got into easier than I did so their review may be better for opinions on this book. If you are willing to just take a chance then this book is worth a shot and you may find that this book is more for you than it is for me. I'm sure romance readers will enjoy this book from beginning to end.

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

* The only reason that this book does not get the full 5 stars is because I struggled to read the first few chapters and I did not think that I would enjoy this book. I did like this book but it was not as good as other books that I have read. I think that the reason I did not enjoy this book is because I am not a huge fan of the romance genre.
