Vivian Schurfranz ☆ 6 DOWNLOAD SUMMARY Ï PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ☆ Vivian Schurfranz REVIEW Merrie Sunfire #25 She's run away to become a part of history and to fall in love It will take everything she had to survive the first year at Plymouth Colony Stowing away aboard the Mayflower to escape an arranged marriage sixteen year old Merrie Courtland receives no welcome on the Pilgrim. Unlike most of the Sunfires or even some of Schurfranz s titles in particular there is nothing to recommend Merrie Often it s a matter of grasping at straws to find positives in her books but there s always been something Merrie however is a loser on many fronts Schurfranz takes many tropes and cliches from the popular bodice rippers of the time mid 80s but because of the YA constrictions here the story ends up becoming an endless cycle of decisions misunderstandings fueled by hormones that never has whatever depth a little explicitness adult tone could provide So instead we get a silly girl who acts rashly if not stupidly words like spirited plucky spunky are used to supply alpha omega of her personalityFor the supporting characters one s level of physical attractiveness stands in for characterization Merrie s two beaus Luke Zack are both handsome that trait is what consumes Merrie s thoughts the most The appearance of handsome Luke makes thoughts of handsome Zack vanish and vice versa whenever one walks through a chapter This is what the romance consists of one third of the book It s also a Schurfranz stapleStrangely I thought Merrie s nemesis Oliver Loomis was the interesting character despite the horrible way he was written He s a victim of Schurfranz s ugly is bad treatment his thin severe face in a constant sneer as he torments poor Merrie Loomis is a stereotypical Pilgrim a fire brimstone type who constantly berates Merrie for her faults This part of the story would have hugely benefited from a adult treatment since Loomis obsession seems to be what he says are her vile temptress ways Pent up much Had this book become the bodice ripper that it obviously wanted to be we d have some prime Woodiwiss or Rogers with the underlying sexual agony Loomis is going through machinations that go further than simply wanting to kick Merrie out of the Colony It might not have become a GOOD book but it would have been interesting and well honest Instead Loomis is a cardboard villain who serves only to torment Merrie and make her feel persecuted sorry for herself spurring her to make inane decisions which gobble up another third of the bookAs if to compensate for the thin romance ridiculously shallow villain Schurfranz leans heavily on what is sometimes her strong suit history However instead of the rather muted historical overtones in Julie and Danielle Merrie gets dumped into the middle of the Pilgrims first Thanksgiving and far from being a history lesson it is instead a horrible example of Mary Sue speshulness She becomes BFFs with Suanto who teaches her to catch eels She s made an honorary member ambassador by Massasoit himself She becomes blood sisters with a Native girl with the cringeworthy name of Little Fawn who has a mother brother named the eually cringeworthy Singing Wren Fierce Falcon respectively is adopted into the tribe unuestioningly She becomes the object of praise attention at that first Thanksgiving In short Plymouth Colony owes its success to little Merrie Courtland the Natives semi revere her when no one else loved her sniffThe Native angle is as offensive here as it was in Cassie and it s all too clear from her other Sunfire books that Schurfranz is or was uite captivated by the noble savage stereotype No Native appears here without a description of lithe body bronzed limbs or piercing eyes Even Little Fawn is described in such loving terms sometimes to the point where I wondered if Merrie would run off with her instead leave the boys behind Cassie Edwards would be proud Or maybe Schurfranz is Edwards YA nom da plume in order to infiltrate the market Inuiring minds I ve read many Noble Savage bodice rippers myself and don t know how serious the authors take them Schurfranz does seem to be completely earnest about it which is sad Even giving her slack for the time period the way the Natives are treated seems in tune with 1950s TV westerns than what one would expect in 1987 Pidgin English abounds and everyone is described like they ve come from Central Casting for John Ford s Last of the MohicansI have no beef with plucky heroines landing in the middle of historical doings but Merrie took it to an extreme and with the other negatives of shallow characters and offensive stereotypes constricted by the PG reuirement it made for an extremely dull frustrating readBut

Waxing Nostalgic 7 This is not of my favorites of the Sunfire Series I think Merrie s reason for leaving her home and coming to a new land was really shallow I think to leave everything you have ever known with no hope of ever returning is very extreme and would need to be prompted by an extreme circumstance I always like the books in the series where the beaus are well developed too I do not see much competition coming from one of the competitors It is interesting to read about the life of the Saints and differences with the Strangers
