The Spirit of Want 4/4 Review from OnlineBookClub.org I was fascinated with how the author eloquently wrote about the greatest battles that we encounter most specifically, the war in our minds. Despite the fact that Lucy was very much well learned and educated, she was not able to overcome the rejection experienced from her own family. She lost herself in a whirlwind of forbidden love and being a lawyer could not really save her from herself. In the middle part of the story, I

The Spirit of Want 4/4 Review from OnlineBookClub.org One of the motifs of the novel was over-ambition versus selflessness. Where Lucy and A.J trampled on people in order to excel and attain their desired height, Luke and Elizabeth were ready to make sacrifices for others’ well-being. The theme of giving versus taking kept reoccurring in the book. William’s writing style was impeccable. The arrangement of the book followed chronological order which made it easy to understand right from the beginning. His choice of words

The Spirit of Want Review from OnlineBookClub.org William H. Coles is a born storyteller, in all the three parts his large cast doesn’t feel faceless.

The Spirit of Want 4/4 Review from OnlineBookClub.org This fast-paced plot, kept me enthralled, as I followed the protagonist on a journey of forgiveness and love. While romance plays a big part in the story, this is portrayed by the author’s clever use of feelings within his characters, rather than explicit sex scenes. I felt drawn to Lucy, even though at times I was exasperated by her decisions, which I felt were prompted by the powerful men in her life. Tragedy and misfortune seem

The Spirit of Want 4/4 Review from OnlineBookClub.org I was very impressed with the character development which was very realistic and credible; each character had multiple dimensions and none was portrayed as entirely evil or absolutely righteous, rather, they were portrayed as having different characteristics in their “human nature”. I also like how the characters are independent in their developments and yet having similar traits; for example, Elizabeth and Lucy both had insecurities but of different forms and on different levels. It could also
