He’s my teacher. I shouldn’t be alone with him. But I can’t help that he’s irresistible. I let the door silently close at my back. He stared at me, and a taut quiet stretched between us. “I like hearing you play,” I said, moving toward him. He turned, in sync with my slow approach. He looked up at me but didn’t say anything. I rested my clammy hand on the cold, slick body of the baby grand. “May I?” The muscles in his throat shifted, then he swallowed. “Eden.” My knees weakened, like a soft tickling kiss had just been blown against the backs of them. “Is it okay?” I asked. His gaze held mine like two hands joined. He understood what I was really asking. “Let me stay,” I said. “Please.” “You’re going to get me in trouble,” he says.
Having reading ‘An open vein’, another gem by JM Warwick, I looked forward to reading ‘A Season of Eden’ and I am glad I did, it was a fantastic read.
Brilliant and interesting characters, I initially did not like Eden but as the story progressed, you found out about Eden, about her past and how it affected her and you realise how lost she actually is and how she finds someone similar in Mr Christian, her teacher.
The anticipation between them jumps off the page at you, you want them to be together.
The relationship is explored from all aspects and you really feel for them both, after the last page, you will still be thinking about this book.
Another fantastic read by JM Warwick, an insightful read, very different from other YA books out there, an amazing talent.
I recommend ‘A Season of Eden’ highly.
