Enjoyed it a lot. I‘m excited to see what the future holds for Finlay.

AkashaVampie If u don't mind me asking... y a 3.5 for rating? I've heard it's really good and it's on my tbr 6mo
Lisas.Library @AkashaVampie ~ All reviews are subjective. A 3.5 rating from me is still a really good book. I stated under my star rating that I enjoyed the book and am looking forward to Finlays future books. My opinion is that it was a fun book but it was just a bit over the top for me. (edited) 6mo

4.5 stars
Wow! What a compelling debut novel by Joanne Tompkins. This story touched my heart and I‘m certain I will be thinking of these characters for a long time. This is a truly wonderful story about life after a horrific tragedy that deals with loss, grief, hope, forgiveness, family, personal growth and perseverance.

I love TJRs books. This was a fast read with a tragic love story and a coming of age story about four siblings. Although this isn‘t one of my favorites it was still an enjoyable reading experience and I do recommend it.

I was hooked from the first page to the last. I felt sad, angry, hopeful and happy. I felt all the feelings at one point or another while reading about Janes journey. This story takes place on an isolated farm in the UK and we follow Jane who is being held captive by a monster. This book is dark & intense and definitely worth the read.
