Miracle Creek by Angie Kim

Miracle Creek by Angie Kim

My husband asked me to lie. Not a big lie. He probably didn’t even consider it a lie, and neither did I, at first.”

Miracle Creek by Angie Kim

Miracle Creek by Angie Kim begins with a startling and intriguing confession drawing readers into the heart of the mystery and legal proceedings of a court case involving charges of intentional arson and murder.

This contemporary legal thriller is set in a rural town in Virginia where an alternate and sometimes controversial therapy called HBOT is being preformed on individuals with diagnoses of autism, cerebral palsy, and infertility.

HBOT (hyperbaric oxygen therapy) is a procedure where high volumes of pure oxygen is administered at an elevated pressure in a sealed compartment. While a relatively safe procedure, HBOT can be potentially fatal if fire comes in contact with the oxygen tank–which is the case in this book.

The Girl with the Louding Voice by Abi Daré

The Girl with the Louding Voice by Abi Daré

I just finished The Girl with the Louding Voice by Abie Daré and I’m in awe. This is such a powerful, heart-wrenching book from such an unique and beautiful voice.

Just from turning the first few pages, I had a sense I was going to love this book and my inclination wasn’t wrong. This book amazed me! The books I rate 5/5 Stars are books which on top of being well-written with well developed characters and plot lines, also do something emotionally for me. This was certainly one of them.

That day, I tell myself that even if I am not getting anything in this life, I will go to school. I will finish my primary and secondary and university schooling and become a teacher because I don’t want any kind of voice….I want a louding voice.”

The Strange Adventures of H by Sarah Burton

The Strange Adventures of H by Sarah Burton

The Strange Adventures of H by Sarah Burton captures the story of a young girl growing up in 17th Century England. H as she is called, chronicles daily life, both in the time leading up to the Plague and Great Fire of London and it’s aftermath.

She records her many hardships and adventures (with more hardships than adventures to say the least)–growing up as a penniless orphan, estranged from some of her sisters, and at the mercy of her kind, though unknowing Aunt and her licentious cousin, Roger.

When the Plague snatches everything that she has held dear, H is thrown into a dangerous and contagious world. Finding herself penniless and homeless, as well as friendless, she has to fend for herself in the Plague-ridden streets of London, where she must use both her will and her wits to survive.
