Best character development
Everyone Archer Liz & Tristan
Sela Hannah War
In An Exaltation of Larks, we follow the path of many characters through the decades. We see their struggles and also the people they become because of them. I think this book is the epitome of character development.
Archer goes from being a recluse to a family man and pillar of society.
In The Air He Breathes, it is shown the journey back to life of two people who’ve lost their spouses and are trying to move forward in life. This journey is not devoid of grief and drama, so that once the HEA comes around, they are truly changed characters.
I also included Sugar Daddy because, even if I didn’t love it, I appreciated beyond measure how Sela decided not to act on her revenge anymore after she and Beck got serious. She starts the book as a desperate, driven woman whose only goal in life is killing her rapist to a character who’s healing and trying to move on with her life.
This Isn’t Over, Baby is practically a book about the train-wreck that is Hannah spiraling down and giving in to her crazy more and more as the chapters fly by.
Lastly, I loved how War, instead, started as a broken, obsessed character and found its way back to, if not sanity, a more serene state of mind. His development was probably one of the most blatant.
