Enemies of Doves deals with heavy topics ranging from PTSD to addiction to child abuse without flinching, but manages to do so while being thoroughly entertaining. There are plenty of twists and turns along the ride that'll keep you turning pages. Or, at the very least, that kept me turning pages through the whole night (I was a little surprised to find I'd stayed up through the night and the clock read 6:30 when I finished).
I typically hate books that jump timelines. This book is a rare exception (the only other I can think of is NYT bestseller Jerry Jenkins' "I, Saul"). It weaves a cohesive story seamlessly through the Great Depression, the WWII homefront, and the early 1990s. There's plenty of little pieces of '90s nostalgia that will make anyone who lived through it smile. The author nails the East Texas setting (said as someone who has spent lots of time in the places she writes about) and the characters are wonderfully flawed and believable. I especially liked the sibling relationship between the Fichett brothers.
Full disclosure: I am a fellow debut novelist whose book is being released by TouchPoint Press, who published Enemies of Doves. I was not asked to read or review this or any book by the publisher, nor was I compensated in any way for doing so.
Mrs. Gluhm did an excellent job of writing one of the best 'whodunit' stories I've read in ages.
I doubt you'll guess the ending.
I doubt you'll put it down after you read the first chapter.
I don't doubt that you will think of this story for weeks after you've finished it or that you'll ever look at someone's scarred face without thinking of Joel Fitchett.
You'll also hope that an addendum is made to the book to teach all readers how to play Loony Rummy!
After losing his parents to tragedy in 1991, Garrison Stark finds himself on the journey of a lifetime after trying to piece together the ramblings of his grandmother. He’s losing her dementia so he must find his own answers.
Tom Fitchett may be a prominent dentist in his small Texas town in 1941, but to his sons, Joel and Clancy, he’s an overbearing tyrant who’s never satisfied with anything they do. Older by almost two years, Joel is the responsible always charged with looking out for his brother.
Being the responsible one will lead to life-changing trauma for Joel, just as serving in WWII will change the carefree, self-serving Clancy.
Loved Joel. He was a sympathetic character who took on burdens that weren’t his to shoulder, most by choice because it was his nature, and others forced upon him by his father and brother. I didn’t care for Clancy for much of the story. He was the golden boy trouble always eluded.
Or so it appeared.
Lorraine Applewhite? She too was too self-centered for far too long. It’s easy to say she was caught between two brothers, but to me, Lorraine put herself there. Joel didn’t deserve that.
I’m not one for dual timelines, but this one was perfection with the fifty-year timespan moving forward in tandem. Garrison’s search will cause time to collide, unlocking a lifetime of secrets, and THE PLOT TWIST OF 2020!
Stellar writing and well-developed characters make this read one to not be missed. Because… that plot twist!

This book captured me within 3 pages. I was so blown away by how intrigued and interested I was. This book/story was just....wow. The characters, the way she wrote and described details; however, not too many details (that gets annoying). The way she wrote their lines, how you can imagine their accent, the way the story went back and forth between times was so captivating and involved. The twist I really didn't see coming; how upset I was when the last page was read, realizing the book was over. There is a way you get so involved in the story and the characters-it's hard to let them go honestly.
I absolutely loved this story; characters; dynamic; plot; twist; ALL OF IT!
I can't wait for the next book.
BRAVO ON YOUR FIRST NOVEL!!!
