Gastien Part 1: The Cost of the Dream (The Gastien Series),

by Caddy Rowland

BRIEF SUMMARY
We are introduced to Gastien, in the beginning of the story, age forty three. The next chapter and throughout the book takes us on a journey of Gastien’s life from boy hood to that point where he is in his now in his life.

THOUGHTS
I have to start out by saying this was a very well thought out and detailed story, and I commend the author. Gastien definitely had many sides to him throughout this story, all due to his upbringing. His father was abusive verbally and physically, as well towards his mother. For Gastien, this started when he was three and a half. With wanting to be an artist, his father thought wit as feminine; Gastien didn’t want to be the farmer his dad was. This choice leaves him homeless at one point and struggling throughout certain parts of his life.

Nevertheless, with that being said, it’s not all sad. The story has romance, good supporting characters, and wonderful storytelling by the author. This story might not be for everyone and it depends on the taste of the reader. If you are a diehard fan of the historical genre and era in which the story takes place, the 1800s, then you might really enjoy this book. The drama aspect as well, will definitely take you on an emotional ride, as you follow his journey.

A lengthy novel, a good read, and the author surely took you on a journey throughout this book.
