  • Ridley House on Feb. 23, 2014

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was smoothly written, well-edited, and the story was compelling with a fascinating main character. It only took me a few days to read it; I didn't want to put it down. Each scene seemed to unfold before me as if I were watching a movie. Kay appears to be nineteen, but in reality, she hasn't aged or changed at all in seventy-five years. She also doesn't know why, and she has no memories of her childhood or who she was before she was unable to mature like a normal person. She has been changing locations and doing odd jobs for years, living a very lonely existence. She gets a summer job at the Ridley House Inn, and suddenly, she feels she may find the answers she's been seeking. Not only does the place feel familiar, but there is an old portrait of a woman on the wall who is identical to her. While there, she meets a handsome, young man, and memories slowly begin to return. She is desperate to find out more about her past, especially anything regarding her lost love. She makes some friends, and she also makes some enemies while working there. The owner of the inn may be her relative, and she may also be able to give her information about her family. This is an intriguing mystery and love story; books like this one are the reason why I love to read so much. I got completely lost in it, and I couldn't wait for the secrets in Kay's past to be revealed. I was also hopeful that Kay would get a much deserved happy ending. Highly recommended.
  • Hush on April 30, 2015

    This review is also posted on my blog: http://theshortreviewer.blogspot.com/2015/04/hush.html In this short story, a sixteen year old girl is desperate to be free from her kidnapper, the man who took her when she was just a little girl. In his twisted mind, he's created a family with her and the other children he took. This story is dark and disturbing. As Madison (or Rosie as her kidnapper calls her) recounts memories of her lost childhood, she devises a plan. What she does to try to get away from her kidnapper is startling. Upsetting. It honestly reeled me. I can't say I would have done the same, but I've never been in her shoes. I can only imagine how difficult of an existence that would be. "Hush" is very short, but it's impactful. I'm giving this five stars because it's a story I won't forget.
