A Book with Wings2016年5月21日にアメリカ合衆国でレビュー済み
This is a book with a gripping story, complex characters and relationships, and wonderful descriptions. Mary Howard has captured how our perceptions are often so limited by the constrictions of our experiences. The effects of the disappearance of a 6-week old baby on the parents, a schizophrenic grandmother, a nearing-forty woman with a first pregnancy, and several other interesting characters is so well done.

No willing suspension of disbelief in this novel by Mary Howard, for every situation and every character is completely convincing.

A fast-paced whodunit with a surprising but satisfying ending2016年8月25日にアメリカ合衆国でレビュー済み
You'll be guessing until the very last reveal with this cast of many characters, most of them artists of various sorts. The setting is a small Iowa town rarely disturbed by violence of any kind, and the suspects range from the charming voice actor who lives with mental illness to an eccentric and maligned PhD candidate from a nearby university. Only the protagonist and her husband are beyond suspicion, and the fast pace will keep you turning the page.
