The Ashentilly Letters (The Calgary Chessman Trilogy) Reviews
Since I had read part 1 and 2 of this, I had to get part 3 as well or I wouldn't have found peace. I liked part one a lot, part two less, since it included a lot of archeological details that were simply wasted on me. Part three does that too, but the author has found a very nice way to give advance warning, so you'll know where to maybe just skim. The story itself is the perfect, bitter-sweet solution I expected it to be.
I looked forward to part 3 of Cas Longmore’s story, having really enjoyed reading Books 1 & 2 of the series. The author’s excellent use of description continues, the geographical setting changing from Mull, Scotland, to New Zealand. The ties of home and family are more complex at this stage of Cas’ life and, indeed, she has to decide where ‘home’ actually is. Her loyalty to her grandparents is admirable but it comes with some very sad aspects. The author’s portrayal of the issues that must be overcome regarding Cas’ frail and aging grandparents is very realistic and believable- the continuation of Cas’ character development very well done! I was glad to read on and find that happiness was also there in New Zealand for Cas- meeting the new character named Collie was a pleasure!The archaeological connection is covered differently in Book 3 from Books 1 & 2. In the first two books, the characters—Sam and archaeologist Niall—are actively involved in the ‘digs’ and are sharing the developments with Cas as they unfold. In Book 3 Sam is sharing ‘dig’ information via his letters to Cas, sent to New Zealand. Much as I loved the information that the letters contained, the author’s inclusion of this mechanism slowed down the pace for me. I hope, though, that anyone interested in learning a bit about Roman Scotland history will enjoy the read.
