Willows Bend is another fantastic book by Suzanne Brandyn. I love the characters and the way Suzanne Brandyn portrayed them and how they interact with each other throughout this book. The description of the settings allowed me to imagine living in Gimilla. Willows Bend engaged me from the start, and I had trouble putting the book down. Willows Bend was well written and Researched by Suzanne Brandyn. The readers of Willows Bend will learn about the consequences that spreading rumours can have on a person in a small rural community. Also, the readers of Willows Bend will learn about what parents will do to protect their child.
It was an easy read, but it was a bit too predictable and lacked realism...who falls that quick...why was it just too soft with the abduction...it fell into place for the heroine just to nicely. Lacked that wow factor...did not keep me from putting the book down.
