Amity & Sorrow - Peggy Riley The premise of Amity & Sorrow held a lot of appeal to me, but ultimately failed to capture my interest. I ended up slogging through to the end, just to be able to form an educated opinion about the novel. There was something about these characters that could not evoke any emotion from me. I anticipated that with such uncomfortable subject matter I would feel something, anything for their struggles and dilemmas, this didn’t happen. I kept finding myself wishing there was a greater glimpse into the individuals which was not portrayed through the third person narrative. The pacing of the story felt simultaneously hurried and sluggish with either too much exposition or not enough. All of this said, I would be interested in reading the next work by Peggy Riley. There were many places within the story that showed flashes of writing that could be captivating.*I received this book through Netgalley.com for review purposes.
