    One thought on “Athena's Daughter”

    1. I loved Athena's Daughter I had every emotion while reading this book Athena was a good mother who was young, scared hurt and mad a bad decision Give the opportunity to make it better doesn't always present itself and when it does it still isn't all roses and sunshine However in between all those moments there are hints of lust and true love and even heart wrenching agony I don't really want to give any of the story away but this is a must read !!!!

    2. 4 SOLID STARS!Athena's Daughter by Juli Page Morgan*ARC provided in return for an honest review*"With trembling lips she stares into Derek's eyes; eyes that were the same vivid blue as Elizabeth's."Athena Chandler didn't plan for her life to be what it is today. A 25 year old single mother with a daughter to the man who broke her heart, divorced from a man she never loved in a time when it was shunned. The doubts still plague her about her choices after spending an amazing summer after high scho [...]

    3. Okay, even though this is on my "to read" shelf, I've pretty much read this already.d trust me, you're gonna wanna read this, too, especially if you liked Juli's other rock'n'roll romance.I loved 'Athena's Daughter.' Athena is a warm, loving mother who made a mistake, and when the opportunity presents itself, tries to fix it. Derek is the bad boy who yearns for what he and Athena once had--but almost ruins everything becausehedoesn't want to make a mistake.So, do yourself a favor and read "Athen [...]

    4. What a FANTASTIC story! Juli Page Morgan's Athena's Daughter takes you back in time to the mid-70's and immerses you in the heady excitement and gritty realism of a band that makes the leap from tiny venues to mega-stardom. The songs she references took me back in time. The characters are so alive they leap off the page, as they unravel secrets and find forgiveness on their way to happily-ever-after. How I wish this book came with a soundtrack!

    5. So I ended up liking Athena's Daughter just as much as Juli Page Morgan's first novel Crimson and Clover, but for very different reasons. Where C&C was all about the bittersweet longing between young, starcrossed lovers (a favorite theme of mine), Athena's Daughter was about forgiveness, reconciliation, and rekindling old flames that haven'tquiteburnedoutt.Athena and Derek, once engaged to be married, have ended up an ocean apart thanks to some understandable miscommunication. What neither o [...]

    6. This is a very good story. I enjoyed almost every bit of it. I loved the characters and they were well-developed and very interesting. The other band members and the manager were so very likeable and I hope to see more books about them. The story line was excellent.I wasn't thrilled that Derek could not easily get over the betrayal of his daughter (which I did not consider a betrayal at all) but I guess that is what makes the story. It seems Derek was always pretty open and honest with Athena ab [...]

    7. This was a lovely story about mistakes, miscommunication and rekindling love.I really felt for Derek in the beginning, but then he didn't help matters by not being able to communicate how he was really feeling either.Athena was truly upset about the mistakes she made, though she was always putting Elizabeth first and trying to be a good mother first and foremost.I would've liked the ending to show further into the future to see how things turned out for them (view spoiler)[I wanted to find out w [...]

    8. A wonderful surprise that is out of my usual book selection zone. This is a story of love lost and found. Loved the characters and the relationship building. I felt a connection to the characters and stepped out of my own problems and became apart of this story. I devoured this book in one sitting. ♥ Recommend ♥

    9. i bought this on a whim and a suggestion from amazon based on another book i had read. I didn't hate it but it wasn't one of my all time favorites. It's a good story but I just didn't feel connected to the characters.

    10. This was such a great story about 2nd chances and I loved how she was basically telling him bout his daughter before he found out so he would have a since of knowing her before hand and not be blind I recommend

    11. This book was full of angst and will they won't they and after awhile I was pleased with the HEA don't like it when there's no epilogue but still I enjoyed it

    12. Athena’s Daughter feels so true to life!Read full review in the 2013 July/August double issue of InD’tale Magazine.

    13. This review and many others can be found on my blog - Feed Your Fiction AddictionI don't know why I put off reading this book for so long! I received it from the author months ago and have to admit that, for some reason, I kept putting it on the back burner. I don't exactly know why - I think that perhaps the fact that it was set in the 60's and 70's didn't appeal to me (even though I was born in the 70's, I was too young to feel much of a connection with that time period). Whatever, it was that [...]

    14. 3.5 rounded to 4 b/c I'm feeling generous. It was a good story and had engaging characters. I didn't make a complete connection with them, though. I wasn't disconnected, either. Athena's Daughter is set in the 70's, partly in late 60's England through flashbacks. The Beatles are the top band in England and Wolf is just getting started. MMC is Derek, lead guitar for Wolf. MFC is Athena, a girl who decided to travel the UK for a summer just because she could. Oh, and to defy her controlling parent [...]

    15. This book was set in the 1970's a great year for Rock N Roll. The editing was really tight but the angst was just too much for me. It could have been wrapped up so much earlier in the story. The two MC's did not communicate with each other at all. That ruined the book for me. I would read more stories by this author.
