What I've been reading May 2017

May is over? How did that happen?? Despite my busy May I did manage to read several books.

"Beyond the Bright Sea" by Lauren Wolk is a touching story about an orphan from a leprosy colony set adrift by her mother as an infant. The story takes place on islands off the coast of New England. The infant girl is taken in and raised by a man living alone on an island. When the girl reaches twelve she is curious about her family and what happened to them. While this book is intended for children it is a well written story about what it means to be a part of the family we know.

"Roanoke Girls" by Amy Engel.   Sent to live on the Roanoke family farm with her grandparents after her mother commits suicide, 17 year old Lane soon discovers the terrible family secret that drove her mother away from Roanoke. The other family secret is suspected early on but is fully revealed at the end of the story. How can love, jealousy, secrets and power tear this family apart for more that one generation?

"Full Wolf Moon" by Lincoln Child. An isolated place in the Adirondacks becomes the location of several brutal murders. Locals tell of werewolf like attacks during the full moon. When Forest Ranger Randall discovers his college friend, (an investigator in the field of the paranormal) is taking a working vacation nearby, he enlists Logan's help with the mystery.  A rather entertaining story.
