Description: The House on Fortune Street is suspenseful and compelling. It's filled with enough allusions to Dickens and Bronte to keep the literature lover engaged without being heavy handed. And while I do admit to rolling my eyes once or twice in response to the organic-wine-loving, Keats-quoting, angst-filled characters, I never thought the author was pretentious. I know it's hard to believe, but it's true. The book also raises some interesting ethical questions for our generation. In an age when moral relativism trumps moral absolutism in governing our secular sensibilities, to what moral authority, if any, do we appeal when deciding who we can and cannot love? What is legitimate love, and what is off-limits? Through her characters' fates, the author demonstrates that simply "following our hearts" is not a sufficient compass for navigating the complicated web of our relationships, and often has terrible, long-lasting consequences. The author doesn't provide the answers, but she at least gives us something to think about. Simultaneously sophisticated and suspenseful, thoughtful and fact-paced, this is the ideal summer read. I really enjoyed it.
