really liked it

Storm at the Door is pure eloquence.

There is no other way to say it. There is no other way to see it. Stefan Merrill Block grabbed me from the first sentence, and his novel still hasn’t let me go.

Using the lives of his grandparents as inspiration, Merrill Block added realism to the story, even adding his own concerns to the words. Frederick is described as a creative, very bright man. He can’t handle his inner world and the outer one, and as you read Storm at the Door you can see Merrill Block wondering how this DNA affects him as well.

Storm at the Door beautifully travels through time and setting: allowing the readers to see this terrible and difficult situation from all sides. We get to experience the trauma through all the players, and I found my time inside this novel mesmerizing.
