A Partner for Leonora (Leonora Hodge Book 3)
So naturally, I did expect — a little too much I guess. Well it happens to the best of us, right? When a book sounded that it would be right up your alley, add the fact that it is a retelling of one of your favorite fairytales and all the hype surrounding it, one cannot NOT expect. Apparently, a lot. But let me tell you first about the good points.cigederlene.ml/barrio-rising-urban-popular-politics-and.php
Fenyes-Curtin-Paloheimo Papers Container List
The mention of Mythology was a plus point for me, thanks to this book for another mythology lesson, some of it I already forgot. I liked how the book revolved into the story of greek gods or how they played an enormous part on the overall plot of the book. This added spice into it. Another good point is the uniqueness of the setting, with all the rooms that changes every time, the Hearts fire, earth, water, air. The element of fantasy was well played out as well. Now to the issues I had with this book. Let me tell you first that I was confused most of the time. The book really tested my attention skill.
I found it really hard to concentrate. Another issue, was the love triangle. It was weird, for lack of a better term. Just, no. Im not really digging it. Much like instant ramen — it will kill you with all its MSG haha. So where does this love come from? And can I say Nyx was the most inconsistent character I have ever come across with. All this can be condensed into 5 pages or so, but no it went on and on and on.
Fantasy and retelling will always be my favorite, but this book fell a little short. Would i pick up another Rosamund Hodge book? Who knows, I might like it. You are commenting using your WordPress.

Eva Scott Fenyes ESF was a gifted watercolorist, a successful businesswoman, and a devoted daughter, wife, mother, and grandmother.
She was a patroness of the arts, literature, and music, and an advocate for the preservation of America's Southwestern heritage. Heiress to the fortune created by her father, Eva utilized her inheritance and talents to establish a life in Pasadena, California, that allowed her to nurture her family and sustain an active participation in Pasadena's turn of the 20th century culture and society.
She built luxurious homes where she entertained renowned guests. She managed her business properties with sophisticated acumen, traveled extensively, and studied continuously. She participated in establishing and supporting Southwestern cultural institutions and created a unique and artistic record of California's and New Mexico's Spanish and Mexican legacies.
Only Eva survived. Attendence at private schools and travel throughout Europe and Africa, where she was tutored in languages and the arts, provided Eva with an education that contributed to her success and independence. As a young woman she developed an interest in the preservation of the native cultures of the American West.
In , while visiting her parents in St. Augustine, Florida, she assisted Native American detainees held at Fort Marion by purchasing art supplies that they used to paint a record of their historic past as well as their present encounters with American culture. From late through , Eva again traveled in the eastern United States, Europe and Africa, studying language and art.
While in Egypt, she met her second husband, Dr. Adalbert Fenyes, whom she married in Budapest, Hungary in The newlyweds settled in Pasadena, California that same year. There Dr. Fenyes practiced as a physician and was an early practitioner in the use of X-ray technology. He was also a renowned entomologist who traveled the world collecting beetle specimens. Today this important beetle collection is housed at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco. Eva supported the establishment of the museum, and Lummis supported her effort to paint a historic record of the crumbling adobe houses and missions that represented California's Spanish and Mexican heritage.
Ever mindful of her own development, Eva also saw carefully to her daughter's education. Leonora's life was also enriched by her parents' varied interests and the many visitors to their home; and, she was involved in Pasadena's social life, attending events at the Valley Hunt Club and the Hotel Green. Thomas Curtin died in , and Leonora and her daughter returned to Pasadena where Eva and Adalbert built a house for them on the Fenyes Mansion property.
Leonora, however, like her mother, was drawn to the Spanish colonial culture of New Mexico. Over the years, the family's interest in western Spanish heritage became a studied endeavor; and, Eva Fenyes, Leonora Scott Muse Curtin, and Leonora Frances Curtin Paloheimo each brought their own special focus to their collective interest in the Southwest. They gave their financial support and offered their particular skills to anthropological studies and archaeological expeditions; and, they sponsored institutions.
They developed friendships and professional relationships with Adolf F. Bandelier, Edgar L. Leonora Scott Muse Curtin's deep interest in the use of native plants for healing and cooking culminated in the publication of her books Healing Herbs of the Upper Rio Grande and By the Prophet of the Earth Together, along with writer Mary Austin and Frank G. From this venture, Native Market developed as an innovative commercial outlet for Spanish Colonial artisans. In , the family built their home in Santa Fe, and while much of their legacy remains there today, their roots in Pasadena held firm as well.
They made their home in both California and New Mexico and traveled frequently to Finland. He later established the Finnish Consulate for the Southwestern United States in the Fenyes' Pasadena home, where his office may be seen today. It is dedicated to preserving the cultural heritage of Spanish Colonial New Mexico. As the family grew, Eva Scott Fenyes, Leonora Scott Muse Curtin, and Leonora Frances Curtin Paloheimo, along with their husbands, extended their interests and their love of art and education to the cultures and societies of the Southwest.
Through their foresight and generosity their legacy has been established and preserved in both California and New Mexico. The Fenyes-Curtin-Paloheimo collection consists of the papers of eight family members created over a period of four generations. Across the 19th and 20th centuries the family traveled internationally, established homes in New York, Colorado, New Mexico, and California, and accumulated a rich and varied collection of financial, legal, personal and professional documents.
Financial and personal papers form the bulk of the collection, while legal and professional papers form smaller portions.
