Hinterland by LM Brown
Magnificent read, indeed!
Brown pens a powerful and dramatic story in Hinterland. I am already a big fan of Brown's work, and this story is just a wonderfully, dramatic page-turner. The characters, such as little Kate, and Nicholas meld perfectly in this story. It's full of drama, and both heartfulling and heart breaking intensity. This book deserves a second read! (and maybe more). A very well-written story, and I enjoyed it. It is always a joy to read this author's stories. I've read Brown's work, as I am a fan, but I believe (at least right now) this is by far my favorite. The characters are on their own life's journey, surrounded by unanswered questions. Magnificent story, kept this reader turning the pages. A definite attention grabber. The thrills and intrigue is written clearly and the characterizations are engrossing. "There were moments throughout the day when she would feel her mother’s presence like a ghost. Afternoons, when Nicholas rose and reluctantly walked out of her room, she’d watch her father’s back and imagine her mother in the room, her bright eyes lingering, not on the departing figure, but on Kate and she’d feel a weight of sadness too big for a little girl." It's a intriguing story to follow and try to figure out what will happen next. I look forward to reading many more stories by this author. This book is a definite recommendation by Amy's Bookshelf Reviews.
