I haven't been truly gobsmacked by a book in a long time, and I Am in Here literally took my breath away! The premise of this suspense thriller, set in a volatile family predicament that seems to go from bad to worse by the minute, is brilliantly tol
Just finished "Far Side of the Sea" by Kate Breslin. She is a new-to-me author. This book is set in WWI. Here's the description from Thriftbooks:

I have been alternating between Charles Martin books and Cathy Gohlke books. I am filling in the the ones I had not previously read and am going from oldest to newest.

I'm currently on Prelandr
