This novel drew me in immediately. I did not want to put it
down. The setting is a rural farm community in Wisconsin, which I can relate to.
The characters are believable, and people I could care about.
Kirsten Hammarstrom and her siblings are drawn back to their
family farm by a tragedy. Many years ago, tragedy tore the Hammarstrom family apart,
dividing them as well as their community. Kirsten recalls the events that occurred
when she was only nine years old.
Kirsten looked up to her brother Johnny, a high school
sports hero. She also idolized his popular, wealthy girlfriend. Both families
had mixed feelings, as the couple became inseparable. Pampered Stacy was very controlling
and demanding. She often interfered with Johnny’s goals and responsibilities.
Young Kirsten began to notice and hear things that no one
else did. She observed odd conversations and interactions between the young couple.
These things concerned and confused her, especially when Stacy suddenly goes
missing. Johnny is the last one to have seen her. As the investigation ensues, the
town becomes divided and the families literally become torn apart. The case goes
Now, years later the Hammarstrom family must come together
and face each other through another tragedy. The events and betrayals that tore
them all apart are dredged back up. Ultimately, by coming together their questions
are finally answered.
I thoroughly enjoyed and recommend this novel. I hope for more
like this from author Paula Treick DeBoard.
Paul passed suddenly one evening, leaving Jeanne alone after
fifty years of marriage. Forlorn, Jeanne looked for signs from Paul, needing to
know that he was somehow still with her.
Unable to disturb his favourite things, Jeanne left his den just
as he had. His beloved pool table remained set up, waiting for him to play as
he had done every evening for many years.
As she lay in bed late one night, she suddenly heard the familiar
sounds of the billiard balls clicking together. Jeanne whispered her thanks and
love to him, knowing Paul was still there; she now believed he always would be.
There is a difference between feral cats & stray cats, though they both have similar needs. Strays may interact with people. Feral cats are "wild", often unable to be
tamed, and living in groups or colonies.
Please use caution when dealing with
feral cats and kittens. Seek assistance. They need more than food. They need medical assistance such as health checks, testing, spay/neuter, and vaccinations. Many organizations now offer specialized programs in dealing with feral cats. You can help make a difference.
To help prevent this from happening,
please spay and neuter your own pets.
Also, please keep your pets inside your home where they remain safe from loss, harm, injury, and possible disease. You can be part of the solution.
At first it was flattering that Sue was so attached to
Tara, mirroring everything she did. Enraptured with the illusion of being like her, Sue continued to copy Tara with increasing fervor. Tara began to feel literally consumed,
feeling she was disappearing with each bit that Sue took as her own. Ultimately, Tara felt herself being picked apart from within,
dying a bit with each piece taken. She felt her soul disappearing through the imperceptible
holes that Sue made in her identity.

eagles soar high, with nature below. Take
me to the mountain, far up north, where
lakes meet sky, and legends pour forth. Take
me where man and beast live side by side, where
there is no fear, and peace can reside. I
need to know there are bears and deer, and
that they, like I, have a right to be here. I
want to see where wildlife lives,
nature not only takes, but gives.
want to be where ancient trees grow, where
the autumn sun makes the mountain glow; in
spring and summer the trees are green, and
winter snow is deep and clean. I
want to be where beauty astounds, where
singing birds are natural sounds, where
lighthouses call the sailors home
Gichi-Gami’s evening gloam. I
can go back only in memory today, but
my spirit lives there, up on Brockway.
