Read from March 01 to 13, 2012

As the synopsis indicates, the novel opens with death, (though we aren't at that time introduced to the victim) and closes with death. It's the in-between that is so intriguing as to make one put off everything else, including bed, just to see where the story will take the reader.

Benjamin Wood provides an intense well-researched novel in The Bellwether Revivals. Wood explores mental illness, healing and faith, leaving the door partially open for us to decide about the capacity of music to heal.

An intriguing expose of the genius bordering upon madness, The Bellwether Revivals is worthy of your attention. Note: due to the subject matter and some language, I rate this novel 16+ and 4.5/5 stars.
