(1940) “Oh, Laura, why don’t you leave him?” asked Meg in a hushed tone. “What are you waiting for? Divorce him! Start anew with your child without him-“
“Divorce him? No… He…” Laura’s voice trailed off.
(1988) Thankfully, The Lady no longer came in her dreams. Relieved, Sofia hoped she’d never come back again. She missed the view of the West Pier but had to put behind her everything that reminded her of Danny. It was all she could do, to gaze at the Pier from afar, mainly from the Palace Pier, where she loved breathing in the fresh sea air while stretching her legs.
The third book in the trilogy brings us back to its protagonists from two different times and locations.
During World War II, Laura and her little son Freddie are still living in the family home; Charles is determined to never let someone else have Laura.
In 1988, Sofia Aspioti tries to get over Danny; her life in Brighton consists of studying, clubbing and – dreaming of The Lady of the Pier.
With The Lady of the Pier: The Storm, Effrosyni Moschoudi has created the intriguing final book of her paranormal romance trilogy: The Lady of the Pier. The Lady of the Pier: The Storm is an entertaining and fast read, has a great flow, being an expertly woven story. I was drawn into the story right away. I felt close to what happened in both times and countries. All relevant characters became so real that I ‘related’ to them. Effrosyni’s descriptions create a live sensation i.e. you easily see, hear, and smell. Laura & Christian, Sofia & Danny are not unusual for their times; fate isn’t always kind. I cried with them, I laughed with them and – they are now a part of my own memories.
This is a book and/or series to read again.
