Book Review by Bree Herron
Heart pounding, page turner are just a few ways to begin to describe this amazing novel. It was not only a beautifully written story, it was one that had the history buff in me quickly researching what the story was written around. I could not put this book down, it was one of the prettiest books I have ever read.
Kaine is a widow running for her life, coming to Foster Hill was her chance to get away from a monster. Only to find that she might lose her mind, her heart and life with this house. Foster Hill house is a character all in its own. It had seen too many sad memories transcribe through its halls, secrets of the night that it would hold forever in its walls. Ivy, our past character is searching for the truth in this house, though she is and Kaine are generations apart there is a closeness in the hunt for the truth.
Kaine is a special lady, one that is at this house because of her past, and yet she is beginning to see a future that she didn’t know she could have. I loved that she rescued a dog, instantly she shot up to 10 star character to me. I really loved that this book was a dual time and went between Kaine and Ivy. I loved how the author handled this and it made me want to keep reading more.
I am wordless in describing this book. If one could give a perfect description of reading this book it could be that between the past and the future the truth will come out. When the right person reads the past it will begin to form a new path. I felt as though this book transported and made me as the reader part of the story.
