A Song at Twilight
This historical romance contains all the elements of a typical love story, but with a unique challenge that provides unexpected intrigue. The premise is simple: Robin and Sophie meet in 1891 in Cornwall, fall in love, and realize they are soul mates. But a secret soon destroys all hope of marriage and happiness. Years pass, and Sophie becomes a singer of great fame and fortune in London. When Robin re-enters the scene in 1896, their love rekindles, and the couple must figure out how to overcome the barriers keeping them apart. Although it started as a run-of-the-mill romance with a formulaic plot, the story eventually turned into a murder mystery which kept the plot twisting. Robin and Sophie endeavor to solve the murder, figure out their relationship, and navigate the tricky waters of a changing society. Despite its convenient and predictable ending, I was pleasantly surprised with A Song at Twilight. Overall, this is a pleasing romance with a good mysterious twist.
