Fortitude is a historical romance by Carrie Dalby. I was excited to go for a spin with this author, as I haven’t read her work before, and I am always keen to try something new and take a chance on the unknown and exciting.
Fortitude is a riveting tale set in 1898, and the leading character, Claire, had her work cut out for her. She went against the norm, in a somewhat volatile world. From having a Creole as a best friend and nursing the enemy, Claire went against the grain, not fitting into what was acceptable by society at the time. This story was so easy to read, so easy to relate to, so easy to escape into. I loved the way the author described her characters, the plot and the old style way. I love reading about the past, and this author’s spin on it was fantastic. An epic story that I totally disappeared in. 5 stars.
