Down Argentina Way is an emotionally charged, character-driven romantic tale.
The story follows the life of Tommy Lawrence, a talented and handsome man. Tommy’s mother adored him; his father did not. His father was jealous of Tommy. He would lash out at the boy by ridiculing and beating him. When Tommy was fifteen-years-old, his mother feared for his life; to keep her son safe, she sent him away.
Tommy’s teacher, Amelia, took him under her wing and became a friend and surrogate mother to him. Tommy always tried to guard his heart. He was too afraid of being hurt. When he was betrayed in Argentina, it took him years to get over that pain. Tommy would eventually find happiness, but not before he suffered many more trials and disappointments.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading every page of this beautifully written, love-story. The book doesn’t end in a cliff-hanger, but it definitely leaves an opening for another book. I hope there will be a sequel; I would love to read it. Finding talented authors is always a joy. I look forward to reading Virginia Sidley’s next book.
I received this book from Austin Macauley Publishers Ltd, in exchange for an honest review.
