I received a copy of this book for free, and I leave my review voluntarily.
Kirsten Miller grew up in a small town in the mountains of North Carolina. At seventeen, she hit the road and moved to New York City, where she lives to this day. Kirsten is the author of the acclaimed Kiki Strike books, which tell the tale of the delinquent girl geniuses who keep Manhattan safe.
“Some forces in life are so strong that the only thing you can do is submit.”
Harriet was the best at what she did. She was intelligent, observant, and bold. But she was a woman in a male-dominated field, which meant she had her ideas stolen and watched as the men around her were promoted. Nessa lost her husband and had to raise her daughters alone. She devoted her life to making their lives memorable. She was quiet but wise and kind. Jo was a powerhouse. She quickly rose through the ranks and made a name for herself. Until her temper gets the best of her, together, these three women will change their town.
This novel makes me want to shout. What a beautiful nod to female empowerment and strength. I loved this book.
The characters were so well done. I loved the personalities, quirks, and confidence. I found Harriet, Jo, and Nessa the most unlikely of friends. But I adored their friendship. They were beautiful examples of women helping women.
This was a fantastic book. I am not much of a supernatural reader, but this was the perfect blend of mystical and thriller. The plot moves along at a quick pace. And the twists are never-ending.
I loved Harriet’s calm confidence. After years of being seen but not heard, she had enough. And she takes her life back. I loved Nessa’s compassion; she was a lover through and through. And I loved Jo’s passion. She was loyal and determined to protect the ones she loved.
The plot was well developed, and I enjoyed the way things played out. When you think things can’t get any crazier- they do. The twists and turns were unreal. And I loved how the story was told.
This was a fantastic book, with amazing characters, a great plot, and the twists played out well. I loved the idea of the truly guilty being punished.
This would be an incredible series, if done correctly. Tough women being everything they want to be? Loving that!
