The Mill River Recluse - Darcie Chan
Alchemy - Mike Wood
Winter Sea - Susanna Kearsley
The Year She Fell - Alicia RasleySecrets surround the four Wakefield sisters, who grew up in a privileged lifestyle encompassed within a community of poverty. When one sister seeks to confront the ghosts of the family's past drama ensues. The characters in this tale are fully developed and keep the reader invested. The entertaining storyline makes up for the somewhat amateurish writing style. I'd give this one 3.5 stars.
Seeing Sky Blue-Pink - Candance RansomMaddie's mother remarries, moving the family from the city to the country. Maddie struggles to come to terms with all the changes taking place in her life. I read this one with my son and we were both touched by Maddie's story. My son still refers to the sunset as sky blue-pink. This short, sweet story gets 4 stars.
