Fiona Finch & the Pink Valentine

A delightful fanciful tale by: Teagan Ríordáin Geneviene

There are many shades of pink, and seemingly Fiona Finch possesses them all, or just about. As a matter of fact, I’ll put myself on the line and say she may end up inventing a yet unknown most perfect shade of pink.

That’s just eccentric, you might say. I say rather, simply eclectic. Which is partly why I am enchanted by this playful, romantic story.

There are many unique people, places and things in Fiona’s life. Like a room adorned with an abundance of adored this and thats; bought, found and gifted, one looks around and marvels at how wonderfully it all comes together to create a rich brocade tapestry.

Of course, in Fiona’s case it doesn’t hurt that there is a great variety of  pinks tying it all together.

So it goes that this  “in the pink” Fiona, is a very popular young lady, who receives many cards on Valentines Day. Red comes to mind when thinking of hearts and valentines. However, when an old pink valentine comes into Fiona’s life, her curiosity is beyond piqued.

Headstrong, the clever Fiona decides to delve into the mystery of the old pink valentine, and a sweet, wonderful escapade is begun.

I won’t give away the adventure, but let me say that this novelette will take you on a bit of a spin, before it all comes together at the end.

I am very impressed with the solid development of the characters. In 5 chapters (and a later) over 56 pages, I came to know them all well, as if I had read a full novel.

The plot is well structured, and though you might think you know what is going to happen, think again! Time’s up at midnight.

This story, from the most imaginative, Teagan, is a fun read for adults, teens and children alike.

My take away from the story is a reminder that if you are drawn to certain things, certain paths in life; follow your heart! That is the way to live life to its fullest.

Quack Quack, yes there is a duck in the story. Is it pink you ask? Well, why don’t you read this wonderful Steampunk fable, and find out!

  • A quick note; the pink street art images are from my collection. Hopefully I used them properly, to enhance the importance of pink!
