    One thought on “The Broken”

    1. I m not sure if you can entirely trust that blurb, to be honest It might be what the author thought she was writing, but it s not how it came out for me.I didn t see the blurb until preparing this review, so it took me a long while to work out exactly when this story was set Whilst I m not a big fan of London, XXXX date at the top of the chapter, I do like a few grounding facts to help me The date would sufficed in this case as I was about half way through before the era was clear.It starts off [...]

    2. Reviewed By BlackTulip for Booked UpIt is such a beautiful story, but I won t recommend it if you are depressed because it will not improve your mood In my opinion it certainly is worthy of Dickens The atmosphere is dark and bleak enough It goes from very bad to worst before it gets better There is a whirl of emotions and feelings here, good and bad It will definitely move you Sheamus is a young man who has an incredible gift for music He plays violin like a god He has been quiet literally in th [...]

    3. Sometimes the books that actually reach publication make me wonder if publishers can be bribedis is one of those booksr your money you get inaccurate historical context inaccuracies about clothing etc within the historical context poorly articulated, over complicated, poorly resolved plot s unrealistic portrayal of psychological reaction to a life of sexual abuse improbable portrayal of illness and magical healing in a time where people could die of the common cold predictable, unnecessary sub p [...]

    4. I m sure the book is fine, really, but after the lyrical prose of An Immovable Solitude, the writing just seemed elementaryI think I was just looking for a complex writing style tone I quit after 30%.

    5. This review was posted by me to Manic Reviews several months ago.The Broken is a lovely, bittersweet, and ultimately soaring melody that will stay with me for a long time Stella Notecor tells the story of James Riverside, a member of the British aristocracy and Sheamus Flynn, a violinist James is a man who has a proclivity for other men, in an age 19th century when such behavior was considered not just scandalous but criminal Sheamus is a man forced to submit to the depraved and brutal rapes of [...]

    6. Geek confession first I have spent years studying Victorian society during the time in which this narrative was set Some of the historical detail is a little bit off, and parts of this story are slightly anachronistic That being said, it was an enjoyable book The protagonists were well drawn and sympathetic The evil baronet was a true monster The relationship between James and Sheamus was realistically developed and as a reader I was genuinely rooting for them Plus I play the violin myselfI have [...]

    7. James falls in love with the music of violinist Sheamus, the servant of Cade Edward James arranges for Sheamus to spend the Season at his home where they develop feelings for each other When James has to go out of town, Edward calls Sheamus back to his estate This is different from many romances It s graphic when telling about some of the abuse occurring but it does not detract from the story It heightened my feeling of wanting James and Sheamus to work out I liked them both Cade Edward was a v [...]

    8. Reviewed by Kerri I was pleasantly surprised when I started reading this novella I felt the author did a spot on job nailing the time period The characters were not only engaging, but also refreshing.There was a lot of attention paid to detail throughout the story and I was easily transported to another time I liked that and I wondered why this author was new to me, and why I had not heard her name before If you re a lover of well written romantic historicals this one should delight you And at 9 [...]

    9. The title of The Broken became so very clear as the story progressed relationships and men are broken, but Stella Notecor does forge new ones.With a mid Victorian setting, she offers a Dickensian situation for Sheamus Flynn, a violinist trapped by debt to an unscrupulous baronet, Sir Cade Edward James, Baron of Riverside, offers him a way out of the systematic degradation Sir Cade perpetrates, and if they could but stay together, things could be lovely, but of course, it s never that easy.There [...]

    10. The Broken is a story of two lonely men drawn together by the beauty of music The Broken tells the tale of aristocrat James Bradford and virtuoso musician Sheamus Flynn, the Irish servant of another aristocrat, Cade Edward The story is lovely in some aspects and horrific in others.The early stages of the romance between James and Sheamus are a little too abrupt The introductions are barely made before James has Sheamus in his bed At other times, the novel slows down to torturous crawl Scenes des [...]
