Broken Branches by M. Jonathan Lee
'Family curses don't exist. Sure, some families seem to suffer more pain than others, but a curse? An actual curse? I don't think so.'
A family tragedy was the catalyst for Ian Perkins to return to the isolated cottage with his wife and young son. But now they are back, it seems yet more grief might befall the family.
There is still time to act, but that means Ian must face the uncomfortable truth about his past. And in doing so, he must uncover the truth behind the supposed family curse.
This book had me on the edge of my seat! I wasn't completely sure what I was reading about, all I knew was that I wanted to keep reading. So, so good!
I have been on vacation this week and, let me tell you, this was the perfect vacation read. I loved how the chapters went back and forth from the past to the present. I've read books that did that before that seemed confusing but this one flowed in a way that didn't confuse you. Now, there were other things in Broken Branches that confused me, however, it wasn't because of the writing style.
Some things were left kind of open and unexplained. I'm still not completely sure why Ian's brother and father became so distant from him, especially his brother. Actually, Im not exactly sure if that really happened at all not that I think about it...
No matter what, somewhat confusing parts and all, I thoroughly enjoyed Broken Branches! Thank you, Hideaway Fall, for sending this book my way! I highly recommend it!
