Abigail Cottage
by Margaret West

Abigail Cottage is about two very different love stories, one very dark and the other full of purity and light. Both circled around Abbey and the curse that has been in her family's blood line for centuries. A curse, if not broken would have meant the downfall of all mankind. And it entered Abbey's life in the form of a very old gold coin accompanied by a letter notifying her she had inherited a cottage from someone in her family. A cottage she would later find was the portal to evil, shadows that she feared her entire life, and an entity that had been formed out of resentment for the love he lost centuries before. Justin was determined he would have his beloved Abigail regardless of how many souls of babies that were lost. Justin, once a handsome man, had become a grotesque demon who had to use magic to hold the illusion of the self he once was, and to allow Abigail Cottage to appear in a form other than the deteriorating building it was in order to appeal to Abbey to dwell in it. Once she inhabitated the cottage, events were in play and it would take the love of a child and of a true love to break the curse forever. The true love would come from a man Abbey met at the airport after she arrived in Ireland where her inheritance was located. Shaun was smitten and it was love at first sight. They spent one beautiful night together in his mother's house. A night that would set into motion, a miracle, a betrayal, a tragedy, a revelation, and a light which was driven by a love so powerful, no evil could survive it.

This book was outside of the genre I usually read most often, although still paranormal, it was a story that was not about vampires or werewolves. Knowing this, I wasn't sure it would hold my interest even though I do like to read various different reads, I was not real familiar with Margaret West's work. So, in the beginning I found it to be a bit 'slow' going. After sticking it out, and continuing with the story, I soon realized why it started the way it had. She had to explain a bit of the history of the story in order for it to make sense, otherwise, the reader would be lost throughout the entire book.

I found Abigail Cottage to be a very well written book. At times I found the 'accents' a bit hard to understand but not to the point I didn't know what was being said. A few times I felt sorry for the demon in the story because all he wanted was the true love he thought he once had, no matter the cost. This book made me smile, discouraged, anxious, sad and unsure up to the very last page. This book has peeked my interest to check other works by Margaret West. I feel this book can be enjoyed by all no matter the genre they are used to reading because it contains a little bit of everything. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I plan on reading more of Margaret West's work.

4/5 Stars

http://www.newerafittedhat.org/ Stephen Jones, behind the scenes in the fashion plays a unique role because designers an unprecedented degree of freedom given to him, so his work is likely to affect a series of image. Just as the language of the stress, as correct reading and articles to guide the rhythm, Jones hat fashion statement as a designer with the appropriate punctuation.
