Ilsa by Madeleine L'Engle

Although I liked L'Engle's writing, I just skimmed the end of this book.  This melodramatic story of a young man's infatuation for his lively and beautiful distant cousin seemed to go on and on in no clear direction. The tale of this family with secrets in the 'Deep South' was atmospheric but the descriptions of the scenery and old houses were more realistic than the actual characters, I thought.

This is L'Engle's earliest novel, so I will read more of her adult fiction.

I received this ebook from Open Road Integrated Media via Net Galley in return for an honest review.
