Too short

Unlike Pilcher’s long novels, there wasn’t enough time for her deep character development. The story builds up well, but ends with uncertainty. Can a man who was never reliable before suddenly commit to anything for life? I love Pilcher’s descriptive writing- but I especially love her more full and mature later writing in her novel’s: The Shell Seekers, September, Coming Home, and Winter Solstice. I got The Carousel because I was hungry for more of Pilcher’s writing- and I enjoyed this book but her earlier books like this one are just too short to show case the author’s full character development and the wonderful writing style of her later books. I wish she had another one.
