Released on 8 Jul 2012, I thought Past Forward- A serial Novel: Part 1was amazing but Forward – Serial Novel: Episode 2 expounded and created another amazing snippet. It’s a story that continues to question the modern conveniences that inundated our modern lives. Willow is am independently strong woman that is unsuspectingly weave a magically spell of love on two suitors.

This episode introduces the start of a conflict that I think will permeate that rest of the chapter, the growing infatuations of Chad and Bill. Chad Tresdall, the deputy on duty when Willow informed the police of her mother’s death, started visiting because he felt she was all alone. Bill Franklin, is her financial advisor, has continued in her life under the guise of helping her acclimate into modern society. Both men are agitated when they find that Willow has plans with the other man. I think both men are subconsciously falling for her which will be more interesting in the future.

I think what makes this part interesting is that we have more insight into Kari Finley. We also are given more clues as to why Kari Finley essentially withdrew from society. We have a concrete name.

The novel ends on somewhat of a cliffhanger because during his visit Chad read something in Kari’s journal that left him visible and emotional upset. For those waiting for the finish book, I think it’s more interesting to read it in these snippets. A quick thirty minutes and you’re done.

Chautona Havig releasing it as a serial leaves you wanting with anticipation for next week’s installment. This is the first serial novel I have ever read. It’s like reading a television show.



I give Past Forward – Serial Novel: Episode 2 4 out 5.
