- The Brambles
on March 07, 2018
In Leah Erickson's psychological thriller The Brambles, a mysterious young woman named Elizabeth commits suicide – at least that's how the papers report it. But in the face of mounting evidence, her three childhood friends reconnect and start an investigation of their own, spurred on by messages from Elizabeth herself. Well-rounded characters discover that what united them in childhood still holds strong. As one character states: “Things are different when you’re a kid, you know? We were more open-minded. Stuff was magical. There was almost a kind of heaven in it. I think about the firefield, and it was like … this plain of existence. We couldn’t go back to it anymore because we don’t believe. But I’d believe again if I could.” Readers of psychological, supernatural thrillers will enjoy this well-crafted and swiftly paced tale.
