Review
Beautiful, mysterious novel that is quite pleasing and exciting reading you do not want to miss.

The prose alone would carry this manuscript to the presses; couple that with a fine story of multiple antagonists and this is sure to be a thriller you will enjoy. At times, one wonders if our protagonists may fall victim to their adversaries. You will have to read the story to see if this happens. No spoilers here as is always the case on my blog.

You might think that with multiple story lines running throughout, with a couple flashbacks thrown in, that it would be too busy. Weaver actually pulls it off quite well.  And, did I mention the prose Weaver writes. I could not put these words away as the writing style just kept flowing and leading me to the next page. 


Okay, why only 4 ½ teacups with such high praise. In the beginning, the sequencing jumps a little. An example is how they are just at the ranger station signing up as caretakers for the lighthouse. The other segue ways are much smoother. I promise if you just go with this jump, or if you do not mind it (the book might just be a 5 for you), you may find it irresistible, as I did. That may seem a little picky of me to some of you, but that is what would have brought it to 5+ teacups in my opinion.

AAUW works empowering women, since 1881, standing up for causes in the areas of educational, social, economic and political issues especially important to women. Marie Currie was one of the first beneficiaries of the group that would become AAUW receiving monetary help to attend college. I am a proud member and believe that the profit from books seems a fitting donation.
