    1 thought on “The Golden Unicorn”

    1. I love Phyllis Whitney. But I think I love her from the perspective of a 12-year-old who thought she was so mature for reading Gothic Romances. Her books hold a special place in my heart, but I admit I haven't read them in nearly 15 years.

    2. See my review of Whitney'sDaughter of the Stars for more on Whitney and the genre. This book's protagonist, Courtney Marsh, is a success at a very young age but there is something missing in her life because she is an adoptee. Her adoptive parents have recently died and this makes her even more determined to find her biological ones. The only clues she has are a golden unicorn necklace that was with her when she was adopted, a brief mention of East Hampton in an old letter, and a note on a newsp [...]

    3. Releasing novels since 1943, even public school readers, I have been a fan of Phyllis A. Whitney all of my life. Since she created beyond 100 stories, I am hunting for her titles to this day! Featuring a TV interviewer, nothing about this novel goes the way you would expect - the gauge of a fine book.Successful 'Courtney' adored her adoptive parents. When a reference surfaces that seems to pertain to her origins, she decides to view her adoption file. At that time these records were commonly clo [...]

    4. I am torn between giving this two stars and three. Two stars because the plot twists and the ending were not convincing for me and three because it kept me entretained and hooked, which is what I usually look for in a story.Beware of the spoilers.As many have mentioned the romance in this story is not quite there. I didn't buy it, I couldn't believe the love that flourished between those two characters. I never actually felt that the main character ever was in true danger, which would have been [...]

    5. I love Phyllis Whitney books, and had not read one in a long time. Story: Journalist Courtney Marsh is very good at her job, she can interview people, and pull out a brilliant story, however, the story of her own beginning is unknown from her. She was and adopted child, who lived a very happy life, however, her adopted family have died and she starts to wonder who she is. All she knows is that whoever loved her, left her with a necklace of a Golden Unicorn. She finds a clue to her identity, a pa [...]

    6. I came upon Whitney's books when I was about 12. I fell in love with her writing. The Golden Unicorn is, by far, my favorite.Courtney was adopted at an early age & the only thing she has left from her mother is a chain with a golden unicorn pendant. It is this pendant that will identify her with a family, lead her to love, & eventually drag her down a dangerous path to a murderer she cannot neglect to face & whom her biological mother could not escape.Whitney fleshed these characters [...]

    7. I read this once upon a time. Maybe when I was sixteen. I remember being fascinated and horrified at the same time. Actually, this was the book that gave me the name Stacia. Probably I could pin down an exact year if I looked back at my writing and see when I started using Stacia. Quite a messed up and sketchy family. I do remember that there is murder on more than one page. I do remember one of my friends seeing the title and saying "The Golden Unicorn? Really?" It sounds so fluffy and cute. It [...]

    8. I used to read a lot of Phyllis Whitney in my high school days. They are gothic romances but usually the mystery is the big part of the story and the romance is more in the background. They are usually clean though for this particular one I read the reader's digest version so I can't promise the actual book is completely. They usually are though. I liked the mystery part of this one and how it all unfolded but couldn't get past the part that the love interest was a married man. Not ok with that [...]

    9. My mom recommended this book as one of her go-to re-reads. It was actually really good. It was funny to read the proper english and style of the early 70's. The story was good too and while I got annoyed with quite a few members of the family (if not all of them), I was never able to figure out "who-dunnit." It really could have been any of them. I definitely liked that part of it!

    10. Most of this authors books are set in an historical setting. That made this novel set in more present circumstances a different read from usual. I liked the twists in that they really weren't expected. The romance was unconvincing. It seemed one second she disliked him and the next she couldn't live without him. Er?

    11. It was certainly interesting. Though this story was not my usual cup of tea, it was well written. I don't know that I would recommend this book to any of my friends there are a few acquaintances of mine who may enjoy the tale.

    12. Twisted and suspenseful. The story is about a woman who was adopted. Her adoptive parents died recently and she is looking for her biological parents. The family she meets is bizarre.

    13. I really enjoyed this book as a child. Read and re-read numerous times. I think it was the mystery that drew me in as a child.

    14. I mean, honestly, Phyllis Whitney's suspense novels for adults are quite silly. But hey, they're fun.

    15. I've read this book many times. It's actually one of my favorites. It's a very good story and I really like the characters.

    16. What a joy to read a Phyllis A Whitney's book.It's been a long time since I read one and I felt like going back to an old friend.Her stories have similar threads but like reading Agatha Christie's novels, there's always a charm no matter how many times one re-reads it. Courtney Marsh is searching for her biological parents and trying to get close to them is like a landmine. Each and everyone in her family are diabolical with hidden truths and agendas. It makes for a fascinating read trying to fi [...]

    17. Very interesting!This was a very interesting story and a surprise ending. This is my first book by this author but I look forward to reading more by her.
