Fateful by Claudia Gray

Fateful - Claudia Gray

Read by Tiffany: The back of the book mentions werewolves, so its not a spoiler to say that is the fantasy element of the book.

This book was disappointing to me. All about 'knowing' they are meant to be together , etc. For a book set in 1912, with a maid, an aristocratic British family, rich American gentlemen, and a lebanese girl, the language was all wrong. No real attempt was made for their voices, their language or expression to be significantly different. Grated with me the whole time. The ending felt like a contrived cop-out for a happy ending.
