Review of Sam by Darlene Purcell

Standard

Sam is a touching tale of love, compassion, deceit, and survival. Set in the old west, we meet Sam Johnson, a dying man, whose sedated thoughts take us back to relive his unusual life. Sometimes hilarious, and always heartwarming, we get a glimpse of his poor but happy childhood.

The story then shifts to Violet. Desperate, crying, and nowhere to go, Sam takes pity on her and offers her a job and a place to live. Although Sam is not a good-looking man and his hygiene is atrocious, eventually Violet falls in love with him—but the feeling isn’t mutual. In a selfish act of deceit and betrayal, Violet tricks Sam into marrying her, forever destroying their friendship.

About half way through the story, we find that Sam has a secret.

Take a peek and find out why Sam can never love Violet the way she truly wants to be loved. I really enjoyed reading Sam. It was a very well written novel and I found myself reading every chance I had.

Some of the dialogue was a little hard to understand but once I got accustomed to it, it was fine.

I do not hesitate in recommending this book. I loved it!

I give it a five star.
