Book Description

***From best selling mystery, thriller & suspense author, Joanne Clancy***

It was the beginning of everything and also the end...

The full moon crept across the sky, spilling light on to the gaps between the trees. The search party pushed their way deeper into the forest. The light from their torches showed them the way.

Laura Kildare walked in a dream-like state, past the barriers and the groups of police officers. The forest was full of strange faces, searching in the wrong direction, oblivious to where Sofia and Ben lay.

Laura sensed something in the moment before she saw it. A sudden shot of adrenaline pumped through her blood. Something caught her eye as she pushed her way through the dense undergrowth; it was Sofia’s gold necklace.

Then she saw Sofia's body. The rust-coloured pine needles had fallen on her like decoration. Laura screamed; her face was the colour of a ghost. It was a gruesome canvas that would haunt her. There was no sign of Ben.

Sofia Sheridan was a French musician who moved to the remotest part of Ireland to forget her past and start again. It was the beginning of everything and also the end...

˃˃˃ A sign of a gifted author is the ability to transport her readers, place them right in the middle of the storyline and allow them to feel the range of emotions that the characters in the book are going through. Joanne Clancy is that type of author and The Offering is the kind of book that stays with you long after you've read the last word. I have to confess that I haven't been able to stop thinking about the characters and the tragic circumstances that each of them faced in the story, long after I finished reading it.

Joanne Clancy's characters are well-written and very realistic. This book is haunting and mystical and a page turner. Without giving away the ending, it touches on themes that, unfortunately, are too often a part of the fabric of our society but does so in a way that keeps you engaged and provides you with a sense of hope.

I read it in one sitting, unable to put it down until I was able to find out exactly what happened to the characters and why. If you like psychological thrillers with themes of mysticism, this book is for you! ~ Erin Brady, Goodreads

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best I've read 28 Nov. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This has got to be one of my all-time favourite Joanne Clancy books so far, seeing as I'm sure there is much more to come from this brilliantly talented writer and I can't wait to read them, being a huge fan of her work already. The Offering is the captivating and gripping story of a loving mother and child who move to a remote and mystical part of Ireland to start a new life and what happens when they come into contact with the wrong person at the wrong time. As the madman not only takes over their lives for a short while, but ultimately he commits the most heinous of crimes against them that it resonates within your mind and disturbs it slightly so you become entwined with the storyline as much as the vines in the forest. It takes a special author to be able to make you feel the kind of emotion that Joanne Clancy brings out in her characters, for if this skilled author can make you care about what happens to a man that everybody who knows him is literally scared to death of him and rightly so when you find out why he became the monster he turned into, then Joanne Clancy must be doing something right. Along with her vivid descriptions and wonderful writing to bring the whole thing alive and make it breathe of its own accord so it comes across as being very real and it could happen to anyone. Plus the pace of the plot was perfect and the way in which the insanity was portrayed was strongly convincing, while I also particularly liked the way it was broken up into parts and you got to read about how this affected everyone involved. It was at times heartbreaking to take in as you felt the hurt, the horror and eventually, the hope of a peaceful conclusion to this haunting tale that will stay with you long after you've finished it. For this is definitely a page turner and then some, so I think you should treat yourself to this fascinating novel and I bet you'll feel the same way too by the end of it.

As the story develops you begin to feel sorry for the bad guy, but only for a while. I enjoyed the way the main story and back stories are revealed. I read it all in one session, I was so engrossed.
