Smashwords book reviews by Laura DeLuca

  • The Lightness of Dust on June 07, 2013

    The Lightness of Dust is a unique and beautifully written tale that weaves together three time periods seamlessly. Kere is a young healer who wants to marry the love of her life. But while he sails off to find his fortune, her father sells her to a shady priest who wants to profit from her gifts. Sam is a struggling artist working as a handyman at a music hall. His life is simple until he meets an exotic violist who awakens feelings in him he never knew existed and takes his art to a whole new level. But will their love affair survive the separation when he enlists to fight in World War II? In present day California a young professor takes on a brilliant grad-student who wants to take over his lab and maybe ruin his marriage. Even as stand alone tales, all three of these stories held my attention and kept me turning the pages. When you learn how their lives are all connected, its simply mind-blowing. The book combines powerfully written prose, well defined characters, and subtle paranormal/fantasy elements that explode in the last fifty or so pages. I love how each different time period was so well researched and how all the characters were so well developed. But most impressive was the completely original plot that was unlike any other novel I've read to date. This book has something for everyone--historical buffs, fantasy addicts, and even romance junkies will love it. It is definitely a five-star read all the way.
