What People Are Saying

Lisa Allmendinger

Behnke said she chose Michigan as the setting for her first novel because of the very dramatic seasons. And, she's used them artfully in her contemporary 1970s plot. A Victorian Justice is an interesting read, with a theme that deserves a sit-down, family discussion, if there are teens in the house. (Lisa Allmendinger, The Chelsea Standard)

    Very bad book

    This book is written in flowery language and it is very simply a book that is overwritten and underdeveloped. Bad plot, juvenile language, and underdeveloped thoughts make this book and author sub-par. Do not buy.

    Impressed

    I found this book an enjoyable read. Although the controversial subject matter might offend some readers, it was dealt with honestly and made for a gripping story. The characters are real and I was caught me up in their world. The author has captured a place and a time with timeless observations. I highly recommend A Victoian Justice.

    IT TAKES ME BACK

    I could see it as if it were yesterday....my small town upbringing brought to life by Ms. Behnke in A Victorian Justice. When I put it down I immediately called a long lost family member and began to heal the past. We can all be well served by spending time with the family in this book.

    Real and memorable characters

    Patricia Behnke has written a compelling first novel about small town life and the effects of hypocrisy, racism, and hidden abuses stemming from all quarters of the community, not just the protagonists. Beverly and James, the main characters, are vividly characterized as very real people with obvious strengths and weaknesses. Behnke writes honestly and gives both Beverly and James negative and positive character traits, making the novel work for the reader on all levels. One is even able to sympathize with the abuser, because the hypocrisy in this small town is rampant, and the reader begins to understand how one thing leads to another...and another...and another. If you like strong characterization and a readable, flowing story, you'll love A Victorian Justice!

    A wonderful read

    This book surprised me; it was not what I thought it would be when I first started it. The subject of race relations in the 1970s is volatile in and of itself, but complicate it with a love story that is tainted with abuse and this drama takes on a realism that is thought-provoking. The young couple in this book have a lot going against them. Can they overcome the obstacles the members of a small town with a social hierarchy and a penchant for furtive gossiping have put in front of them? Read this book, not only for the story, but for the excellent writing. Behnke keeps you turning the pages.

    THE BEST KIND OF SHOCKING

    A VICTORIAN JUSTICE is shocking in the best way: shocking events, heart-wrenching scenes, vivid characterizations, and seamless writing that caries the reader from one gripping chapter to the next. Pat Behnke¿s autobiographical novel depicts the people of the small town in which she was raised. Many a writer can include biographical information in his or her story, but it takes a writer of exceptional skill to recreate such vivid and distinct characters. A VICTORIAN JUSTICE is a book where there's scandal and intrigue on each page. But not just scandal for scandal's sake, but as a finely crafted story, illuminating the hypocrisy of not only small towns, but, more importantly, small minds. The character of James made my skin crawl with his physical and mental abuse of Beverly. And May and Hollis¿ love for each other sang out from the pages with Behnke¿s tender touch for heart-felt emotion and natural dialogue. In the end, justice is served not only to the hypocritical characters, but the lucky reader who was held spellbound by a gifted storyteller.
