Critiquing Paula Lee

Paula Lee's Emerald's Desire uses extraordinary foreshadowing, suspense and irony that makes her work worth reading. The use of suspense is what makes Paula Lee's work one of her best. Paula Lee creates a fun and curiosity plot through Emmas' journey. After Emmas' mother dies in a car accident, she is left all alone which leads her to find out who she is and where she belongs. Emma ends up going to Ireland that takes her through an adventure she never would have dreamed of. Through her journey, Emma meets unusual people and ends up not knowing which person to trust. Paula Lee's use of suspense made the book an all time thriller. Foreshadowing is used from the time Emmas' mother dies to the time she reveals her true identity. On her way to Ireland, Emma meets Vincent Archer on the airplane who claims to be from Ireland. After talking with him a little while, Emma ends up going to the restroom and when she returns Archer is no where to be in sight. Another time when foreshadowing is used is when Emma is at the hospital with her dying mother. Her mother last words to her was " I can't leave you alone...look for the owl." Throughout the book there is foreshadowing. Irony is shown many different times through the book. For example, Emma grows up believing she was born into the wealthy and comforting Lambournes family, but in reality she was always an adopted child. Another time irony was shown was when Emma knew there was something unique about her that nobody in her family could compare to. Even though she knew she couldn't be compared to anyone of her family members, her grandmother knew she was adopted all along. That's why when it came to family matters, Emma and her mother was an outcast. In conclusion, Paula Lee's work is one of her best yet and is worth the time to read.
