"Bennet looked at his wife’s swollen lips, softly bruised from several deeply loving kisses, and her flushed complexion, as alluring when gracing the countenance of a woman of four-and-forty as that of a girl of nine-and-ten. He was one of the lucky few to have fallen in love with the same woman at both ages. The elder had, after all, learned all that the younger could onl ...more

The end of the previous book left me grieving a loss and a villain exacting his revenge and seemingly winning. I did not have an inkling how the Five Families would get something of their own back and stop a great danger, but have seen enough surprising and enchanting twists to the series that I didn't speculate long and settled in for this latest installment of a riveting magical time travel family saga.

The Avenger: Thomas Bennet and a Father's Lament is book six in an ongoing series. It twists

Mr Jacobson again wows the reader with another magnificent episode in the Wardrobe series. I remember once being impressed by the way movie makers wove their Forrest Gump character through so many major events in the 20th century, but that was small potatoes.

Don Jacobsen takes the art to a new dimension, weaving a tale that spans several generations of Five Families, all of whom possess a unique gift: the ability to live and travel in more than one plane. The social responsibility of such a pow

Like a powerful symphonic compilation, the Bennet Wardrobe, Volume 6 continues to ebb and flow with an intense, gritty, and at times, heart-wrenching tale of forgiveness and redemptive love.

"...the past was an annealing heat through which they would emerge all the stronger, purified to once again swim the currents of flowing into, through, and around them all." (quote from the book)

I looked forward to reading this book, and I was not disappointed. There's much history woven into the novel, so going back and forth from novel to explanation is worth the effort. Kitty's death is avenged, but there are losses to the members of the Five Families. Happy reading!

Great story!

Time traveling and a very interesting intrigue. Thoroughly enjoyable plot. I never thought that Mrs. Bennet could be this profound individual. A hard to put down tale.
