One of the excellent reviews for Condemned by Fate.
I read Condemned by Fate at the end of January. I read it on the plane on my way to California. I have to say when I was finished I was pretty upset with the ending. It has taken me some time to put up a review because I wasn’t sure what I felt about the story. I can tell you that for some reason this book crosses my mind a few times during the week. Tonight I have found it easing it’s way back into my thoughts. When an author’s writing can touch on your emotions like that and breath life so well into the characters that you think about them I have to give it 5 stars.

Book one and two in The Ambition & Destiny Series
One of the recent reviews for Less Than Equals – Part Two of The Ambition & Destiny Series.
I was very shocked by the way Harriet was treated by her uncle as she grew up. My goodness she wasn’t allowed to read, do arithmetic, etc. all she was encouraged to do was embroider, sew, knit, crochet, how to run a home, etc. why were women treated like that back then? It’s no wonder they rebelled.
This story was definitely an eye opener. I enjoyed it very much. Harriet was a very strong determined woman, she deserved a pat on the back. I’m sure others would enjoy this book too if they got it, it’s well worth the time to read it.

About V.L. McBeath
The ‘Ambition & Destiny’ Series was inspired by VL McBeath’s interest in family history. When she started her research she had no idea what she would find or where it would lead. A couple of years later, however, she felt compelled to turn the unfolding story into a novel.
The story is an epic family saga of love, loss and betrayal set against the backdrop of Victorian Era England. It starts in 1839 with a short story prequel ‘Condemned by Fate’, before moving into the main series which is told in five parts, spanning 1846 to 1911.
Born and raised in Liverpool (UK), Val trained as a scientist and has worked in the pharmaceutical industry for many years. She now lives in Cheshire with her husband, youngest daughter, and cat. In addition to family history, her interests include rock music and Premier League Football.
