Holy set of characters. There are so many wonderful characters in this book, but the one that counts is Bronwyn.
Bronwyn is a photographer who rescues a Prime Minister's sons from kidnappers, and as she is rescuing them is shot. She recovers and then gets taken care of by the Prime Minister and his wife and by being taken care of, I mean taken care of. :) She has places to live...something she never had before, a servant/bodyguard named Jeeves, and everything paid for.
She wants for nothing even though she has no immediate family to share her newfound wealth with since she was left alone when she was eight years old. The best gift the Prime Minister and his wife give her is an estate in Maine.
You will follow Bronwyn through her recovery after the shooting and a few other harrowing incidents, but the main gist of the book along with its wonderful details about Pittsburgh is that Bronwyn is designing her estate in Maine and choosing the people she will have live there. That would be a wonderful dream to have come true.
The book is full of quirky, but great characters you would want to meet. Bronwyn is someone you definitely would want to meet and actually be.
NORTH OF SUPPOSED TO BE is filled with Ms. Ferguson's marvelous details about each character and places visited by Bronwyn. She specifically details places in Pittsburgh, PA, which is where I live.
Ms. Ferguson takes you around the world and throughout the United States as you travel with Bronwyn.
A great deal of research went into this book. It is an enjoyable, quick read even thought it is quite long. The pages just seem to fly by.
Give it a try if you want to meet some great characters and take a trip to Pittsburgh and other places without leaving your home. You should enjoy it.
I am going to rate this book a 3/5, though, because of its length and because I got lost a few times with so many characters. :)
