ARRGHH Read this That s the strangest and most macabre thing It started oh months ago when I adjudicated at a big music exam Among the candidates was a girl her techniue was uite outstanding but beyond that there was nothing Absolutely nothing She had no real music in her I told her so frankly and advised her not to flatter herself that she would ever be a concert performer in a million yearsAnyway I forgot all about her after that And then one evening she turned up at a concert I didn t recognize her at first I mean I couldn t think who she was I just knew that I knew her I think I smiled at her Anyway she smiled at me Then she began to haunt me She was at every concert at which I appeared sometimes in the front sometimes on the platformAnd then I was driving home perhaps a little too fast for country roads There s a crossroads near here I came round the bend full tilt and you ll hardly believe it she was standing there bang in the middle of the road I avoided her by a miracle but the car went into a spin And then I crashed into a tree and that was it She d had her revenge all right The hero Lewis Freeman got blinded in this accident And to whom is he telling this weird and disturbing taleTo Antoinette Burney the very girl in uestion who is currently posing as his nursesecretary as he can t recognise her now he s blindSounds like a stalker horror flick right Wrong This unbelievably sick and ghastly scenario is in fact a romance If you re not unnerved enough by the above he later asks her You aren t just a persistent fan pretending to be a good secretary in order to push your way into my private life and make a nuisance of yourself are you Yes That s exactly what she is Lewis and you should run RUN FOR THE HILLS Except you can t can you Because you re blind and your freaky stalker is worming her way into your life lying and dissembling forging documents and you can t escape You can t ever escape Because you and she and this plot are all so fucked up that even when you get your sight back you decide you love her

REVIEW ↠ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Õ Mary Burchell

REVIEW ↠ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Õ Mary Burchell Mary Burchell Õ 9 CHARACTERS CHARACTERS Í When Love is Blind Antoinette Burney a than promising music student is disappointed and furious when the famous concert pianist Lewis Freemont fails her in an exam To make matters worse he tells her forthrightly that she will never make the grade as a professional pianist Her hopes and dreams of success and notoriety are all destroyed in a single blow She doesn’t think she’ll ever be able to forgive himBut it would. 33 starsThis was recommended to me by Minesha thank you so much First off I want to say for being first published in 1967 the lack of sexist or racist remarks I girded my loins for was amazingly absent So bravo But he s inclined to be mocking and a little sardonic about any display of feeling Moving on if this hasn t been made into a Lifetime movie I m willing to bet it s been the inspiration for one or two A very uick rundown heroine is aspiring to be a professional concert pianist but hero fails her at her college final and says some soul shattering comments to herHero is a master pianist who heroine loved going to listen to but starts to sort of stalk him after his comments continue to eat at herIn a serendipitous way she learns where he lives and while walking the road by his house he almost hits her with his car and crashes The crash makes him blind and he now needs a secretary with musical knowledge Don t be uite so reverential he protested amusedly I m afraid you only know me in a somewhat chastened condition When I m under the nervous tension of a professional career I m uite insufferable according to many of my acuaintances I m afraid it s going to be a shock for anyone as good and civilized as youI m not good protested Antoinette I m perfectly horrible sometimes And and I ve done some things I m ashamed ofWhat for instance he enuired with teasing interestI couldn t possibly tell you she exclaimed agitatedly As bad as that You excite my wildest curiosity he said laughing If ever I recover my sight the first thing I shall do is dig into your interesting past Our heroine became a secretary after having her dreams crushed by him so she takes the job They grow closer as she pushes back against his arrogant attitude all that artistic passion don t you know and tries to hide her identity as the girl who caused his accident So the girl he blames for his accident is also the one bringing him back to life Play he shouted at her once Play You ve got it in you to make music haven t you And all you do is push down the keys You drive me crazyYou drive me crazy too She was surprised to find that she too was almost shouting I m not the soloist I m just the useful hack pretending to be an orchestra And stop shouting at me anywayI m sorry he said stiffly No I m sorry too And then suddenly she laughed at the sheer absurdity of the scene and as the tension relaxed she impulsively put her hand over his The pov is all from the heroine and as usual I missed the hero s perspective but his thoughts and personality were still represented He s a master at his craft and with that comes arrogance and an artist s temperament I m saying he can get a bit harsh and sassy It never crossed a line for me and the heroine had a tendency to nip it in the butt The heroine s adoration was a bit hero worship she s twenty and the hero is 36 but as she worked with him they began to develop of a balanced relationship Love is declared by the hero around the 50% but again written in 1967 can t have too much than some scandalous kissing without declaring yourselfThere was a neighbor lady anyone else think it was alluded to that maybe she had taken care of her husband by nefarious methods and he didn t just skip town I have a diabolical mind who obviously wanted the hero I think they had a previous relationship The neighbor lady and heroine engaged in some truly inspired classy subtle not so subtle cat fighting And frankly because I can t help myselfNothing remotely like that happens in the book but Dynasty y all She told herself this was the prerogative of anyone under great nerve strain and remained unshakably calm and good tempered which earned her no however than an irritable Do you have to be so insufferably sweet and spinelessNo not really Were you spoiling for a fightThere was a moment of astonished silence Then he laughed suddenly and asked Is that a smile that I hear in your voiceYes of course You re being rather funny you knowHe drew a long rather odd sigh of something like relief at that and simply said I m glad you re here You ll be backstage all the time tonight won t you I m not sure how much of a spoiler this is I did mention the Lifetime movie thing but the hero has another accident that gives him his sight backSo our heroine decides to disappear forever so he doesn t learn that she is in fact the girl he has been loathing and searching for With help from a main couple from a previous book in the series they have their big climatic But why I love you anyway Again for being written in 1967 this aged magnificently well If you re looking for a change of pace that centers around music talented arrogant hero a heroine that feels like she is 20yrs a mash of naive sweetness needing emotional growth and obliviousness then this would be an out of the box pick up I liked their little interactions and how the heroine and hero communicated even if their relationship felt a little rushed but at 192pgs that is to be expected I ve never read a Mary Burchell before but her writing style will have me on the lookout for of her books from here on out Enjoy the weekend everyone
