It left me more than a little confused.
This book has a lot of problems that prevented me from enjoying the story. I received it free in a First Reads giveaway and I'm not sure if it was an advance copy or the final edition. Either way, I don't believe the book was ready to be published.

First, the book needs some serious proofreading. Having a detailed, even nit-picky, mind (and being a former English teacher to boot), I tend to notice things like misspellings and grammar mistakes, but that does not typically reduce my enjoyment of a
I don't believe the blurb of the book fits the book all that well. There was a sense of mystery and intrigue in the blurb that was never quite there in the book. The last bit of the blurb says, "She also knows she must leave this place or they should surely kill her." This made me think, oh, so we will deal some some sort of demons here, or there will be a hint of darkness to the story. But that part of the story is never really explored.

..... A novel for women of all ages who are

own strengths.
The protagonist is truly a survivor
escaping from a dark and frightful place
where nightmares are real and the dark takes

I received this book as an Advanced Reader Copy from Goodreads. Although I enjoyed the story line, there were many times I was confused about what was going on - such as who was talking and when. This was a great story line and could have used a few more details at times, and even perhaps a little longer to explain the grand-daughters existence.
Overall - I enjoyed to book and will pass on to friends to read.

A Brooklyn, New York native. Being a kid in the 1950's, in Brooklyn, is a whole 'nuther story. Monopoly on the front porches in summer, The Ice Cream Man, in his white uniform and the jingles of his truck, and in the winter hard snowball fights to the death.
When something like that is part of your young life it does become part of your Bio.
If I have antthing else interesting to say I'll be back
