A Glimpse of Scarlet

Roxane Robinson


This is a hard book for me to review. I shouldn’t have bought it, but I’ve read three novels by Robinson and loved each one. I cried when I read Sparta, it was so moving. Ms Robinson is an acute observer and write with delicate precision. The problem is with me. I don’t particularly like short stories. I want to be immersed in a world and develop a long-term relationship with the characters.

Just as I was getting interested in the characters, the story ended. I wanted more. I think I’ll stick to her novels from now on.
