Reader reviewed by Mrs. Healt

I really enjoyed reading this book, especially because the author grew up just up the road from my town.  In this, her debut novel, she spins a tail of mystery and intrigue in the Adirondacks.  The imagery in this book is fantastic.  She tells her dark tale of murder with such compassion for the characters.  I have heard the tale of Grace Brown's murder before, but never with the compassion that Donnely tells it with.  I think this would be appropriate for a high school level student to enjoy.
