BOOK REVIEW: The Spirit of Want
I finished reading this book in around 4 hours in one go as soon as I read the blurb. Before, getting into the interesting plot of the book, I must appreciate the Book cover design which is to the point and relate to the story perfectly. The story is so interesting and engaging that it kept me turning pages. Hence, I didn’t get confused or bored for once. I was gripped by the suspense in it and also because it’s fast-paced.
Lucy the main character of ‘The Spirit of Want’ is a beautiful woman in her thirties and a defense lawyer by profession. She loved her work. The story becomes interesting when she comes in contact with Hower Bain, an evangelist, and her client. He is accused of sexually molesting a child. She falls in love with him and the story takes the turn after this.
