The journey that Crow has to take is a very heart wrenching and eye opening road. After running away from home when she was younger Crow has to return home because her mother is sick and this is where she begins the real journey of self discovery.
I try not to give any teasers away since YOU, the reader, should explore on your own.
Carmilla brings this great book to life with her great writing with abit of paranormal in this book makes it even more AMAZING!!!
Crow left home at a very young age, feeling unloved and uncared for by her mother. Returning home years later after her brother Tom comes to retrieve her because their mother is sick, she discovers many new demons she didn’t realize existed before. Can there be amends made by both mother and daughter before it’s too late? Are they memories of abuse or something else? Many realities come to surface as Crow takes us on her journey to discover the truth of her life and the home she left years earlier.
Well done. Very well done.
After reading it, I realized there really is no other title for this book. I will not give anything away about how this title is perfect though.
The main character of this story Giselle (aka Crow) runs away from home at a very your age. She is angry and emotionally damaged. The author brings Crow’s feelings out so well that the reader can feel the hurt and anger weighing on them.
Crow’s mother is dying and her brother finds her to bring her home because it is their dying mothers wish to make amends. Crow is very reluctant but loves her brother and does it for him.
Crow stays in the house she grew up in (and ran away from). Crow is not comfortable in the house due to the memories it stirring up (the reader becomes uncomfortable as well). There are also hints that something isn’t 100% right with the house.
Crow finally visits her mother and is shocked by what she sees. Her mother does not like the cold intimidating woman she was when Crow ran away. Instantly we see Crow’s wall start to break a little as she see her mother in a new light.
The longer Crow stays in her childhood home she starts to find papers and diaries that give her more insight into her mothers past. This coupled with the visions she starts having is starting to bring a more complete picture for why her mother was so distant when Crow was young and Crow starts to question her own view of her memories.
This book kept the mystery going right to the end. It kept the reader trying to guess what was happening while the entire time, the reader was going through the same emotions as Crow.
We see Crow grow up a lot during this book. When I finished the book, I looked back and was surprised to see how many pages were in the book. There is a lot going on in the book but it is written in a way that it is not overwhelming.
The author tied the storyline up neatly but did leave a door open in case she decides to write the next chapter in Crow’s story.
