SEPTEMBER 2016

Under The Harrow is a dark, psychological thriller that keeps the reader alert and involved in figuring out just who did it! How well do you really know the sibling you're closest to? Can you trust the police to do all in their powers to solve a murder or only until the next case comes along? The narrator is herself a suspect yet still leads us down several paths before the resolution. Intriguing. Read it!

JULY 2012

The author and I share the same favorite character in a book of rich and developed characters. It's Anna. That is only one small reason to read this book, though. How about the setting of Greece, and then consider the time period of 1967 when the revolution was alive throughout the world? Yes, intriguing, but it is the writing and the development of each character as they respond to the political and personal turmoil that brings me to recommend this masterful debut novel.

MARCH 2012

The author writes with great empathy since she herself has a developmentally challenged adult sister. This intrigued me because of the proximity and recent history of our own Traverse City State Hospital. Lynnie and Homan escape together for a few brief days but those days are enough to allow them to hide a tremendous secret, a baby girl. Simon approaches this difficult story with great sensitivity and follows the lives of these characters through forty years. I recommend this and would also suggest Admissions by Jennie Sowle (a best-selling book at Horizon in 2010).
