That Woman is an engrossing, historical fiction novel about one young woman’s struggle against Colonial New York, it is an informative read that will shock and surprise you as we follow the protagonist of the novel on her terrifying journey of self-discovery. It is a novel, I believe, that everybody should read because it informs the reader about so many happenings but also, it is a brilliant read! A read that should not be missed, it is a novel that kept me engrossed, enthralled and enchanted until the very last page. I found That Woman to be unputdownable, it is literature in its finest form thanks to the novel’s engrossing literature, riveting plot and let’s not forget astonishing characters. All of these factors combined make That Woman one of my favourite historical fiction reads of 2017; an all-round triumphant piece of fiction that I would implore all of you lovely readers to read! If you need more convincing then read the rest of my review to hear more about this dazzling piece of literature.

The synopsis of That Woman is gripping, glorious, and let’s not forget breath-taking The novel has a plot that has surprised me more than once thanks to its captivating and absorbing nature; one thing is for certain when you read That Woman and that is you will never be bored reading because it is a diverse all-consuming assault of brilliance that will keep you motivated to read until the very end, it is like the author has a binding spell on you and the only way to break this spell is to fully immerse yourself in the novel’s layers upon layers of excellence and brilliance

The story of That Woman is an incredibly dynamic, unique piece of work that took my breath away on more than one occasion, the pacing of this story was wonderfully written and plotted so that I did not get bored at any given time. I always measure my likeness of a book on whether I find myself looking at the page number; if I do in fact do this I know that the novel is taking its toll… in other words it is dragging and I want it to end but That Woman was different than this and not like this at all as never once did I find myself referring to the page number and that is a sure sign that That Woman is a compelling piece of work that draws the reader in and captivates them to read it quickly and to reach the end of the book very fast.

The author of the novel Wayne Clark can only be described as a literary artisan. Writing for me is an art form, it is much of an art as beautiful renaissance sculptures (I have a passion for reading as well as the renaissance period!), paintings and wonderfully executed movies that excite the viewer. The objective of any great writer is that of any kind of artist; it is to communicate a message and to delight the recipient whether that be the listener, the viewer or the reader… in this case the reader. Clark has wonderfully delighted me and has communicated the novel’s message to me soundly and perfectly. This is why I am in such awe of Clark he is a creative genius and a visionary thinker that is also passionate and articulate and this, in my opinion, is a hard balance to find these days in the art of literature.

Clark’s writing was radiant, the words from his visionary thinking mind shone of the page luminous that I felt a glow of pure enjoyment from reading this engrossing book. It is the type of book that the reader will want to read over and over again so that he and/or she can pick up new details to fully immerse themselves in the brilliant world of That Woman.

To summarize my thoughts on the charismatic novel that is That Woman I would say if you are a reader who Is tired of reading the same old books that are lacklustre and forgettable then take a chance with That Woman because I promise you now that you will not be disappointed. It is a novel that has everything the reader would want in a read and so much more; it has spine-tingling good content, dynamic, memorable characters, a charismatic author that writes beautifully and wonderfully so and lastly it is an all-around, interesting, memorable read that you will not be disappointed if you choose to read it. My rating for this wonderful book, of course, has to be Five Stars, it would be crazy if I did not give it this rating after all of my praise over these paragraphs!
