Amelia Blake has been through a number of things in her life that most average people would call failures: failure to live up to her mother’s expectations, failure to have a successful, monogamous marriage, failure to have children… Most people. Not Amelia. Her passion for life and all its passions takes much more than that to be extinguished. Finding herself a widow in her early forties, she decides to reinvent her life, try something new, start anew. Unsure as of what this something new may be, she trusts life to make that decision for her and take her in the right direction. The answer might be in the new business opportunity. Or perhaps in a new romance. Or maybe in a memory she had long thought faded. Just as she begins to plant her roots and enjoy her new routines, she receives the news of her long estranged mother having had a stroke. The woman she hardly knew and never dared to love, now needs Amelia the way she once needed her.
Once in a while, it is nice to read a novel that is moving, grounding, and exceptionally well-written; a book that is guaranteed to entertain and charm you for a few evenings over the course of the week. The New Beginnings of Amelia Blake is just that, a novel that you can count on to entertain you for hours on end thanks to the excellent author, Mirjana Fulir and her exceptional talent to charm, delight and grasp her readers within a manner of a few chapters.
The New Beginnings of Amelia Blake is a book that everybody will be able to resonate with. Amelia Blake is the protagonist of the story, and she is a woman who has experienced a lot of harsh and sad happenings as well as failures, but one of the admirable traits of Amelia’s is that she does not let her hardships and failures define who she is. Amelia is a woman who has experienced a handful of these two things, she has failed to live up to her mother’s expectations, failed to have children and failed at marriage. Amelia, however, despite her failures keeps moving forward and the reader will have the pleasure of following Amelia on her journey through love, work, and even an exciting business opportunity.
The story of The New Beginnings of Amelia Blake is one that moved me and I believe this is due to the poignancy of the story as well as the gripping characterization of Amelia Blake. Amelia is a woman all women will be able to relate or resonate with. There is pressure on all women and even men to be perfect, to live up to parents expectations and to have children. What happens to a person when you are not able to fulfill this? When you are not able to play the role of happy wife and perfect child? The New Beginnings of Amelia Blake explores this in a touching, moving novel courtesy of Mirjana Fulir.
Mirjana Fulir is an incredibly talented woman whose work I adore. There is something almost poetic about Fulir’s prose, her words glide from page to page and leave an ever-lasting impact on the reader. The purpose of any great writer is to delight, entertain and engross its readers and Fulir manages to do all three of these things at an exceptional level.
As the story of The New Beginnings Of Amelia Blake is phenomenal and the writing courtesy of Mirjana Fulir flawless, I have no choice but to award this stunning piece of fiction a dazzling Five Stars!
