A Century Divided Reviews
This story hooked me from its beginning when we meet Caleb, in New York City at the height of indulgence during the roaring twenties. I was pleasantly taken aback by the stunning, clear imagery and stylish dialogue of the era which served as the backdrop for the two main characters to fall quickly and passionately in love. Throughout the novel the two are most definitely given realistic, heartbreaking challenges faced by same sex couples in the first half of the twentieth century. During their struggles we see how deeply flawed they are, the issues they’re confronted with are so very real and relatable. They find themselves separated throughout the story due to devastating circumstances which are full to the brim with ache and angst. Yet it is their triumphant, unwavering, and timeless love which repeatedly brings them back home to each other, that captured my heart. I love the details the author has provided of New York City’s evolving dialogue, industrial and architectural development, and revolutionary culture as the story moves through each decade. This novel feels true to New York City, justly represents and honors battles hard fought and won by the LGBT community of previous decades, and accurately depicts the difficulties and triumphs of two men irrevocably in love.
This author has wonderful potential. I hope to read more from them in the future.
