By Clarrisa Johal
Between is a deliciously dark tale reminiscent of Barbara Michaels and Mary Stewart. Intriguing characters are blended with a wonderful sense of modern gothic to evoke a haunting landscape. You are introduced to Lucinda, a grieving woman who sees spirits after a horrifying accident immerses her in a deep-rooted mystery that spans history.
The reader is taken on a remarkable journey through the stages of grief, and the war it wages on those left behind. But the author manages to keep these characters from falling into the depths of despair, and instead, it becomes a story of the struggle to escape the mire of depression through a new life, close friends, and the belief in the impossible, even when forces around you seek to hold you back.
What I loved most were the engaging, believable characters and I enjoyed spending time with them. The author’s strength comes from her ability to create everyday, real characters facing impossible situations. Lucinda and Marny’s dialogue and emotions felt like your best friends sitting right next to you. You want to find out what happens to them.
Between deals with the limbo between grief and its recovery, between the past and the future, from the fear of hiding from the world and finding your new place in it. Amidst all those things comes an intriguing paranormal tale that takes you on an impossible journey and leaves you wondering.
I really liked her pet Darwin and found the book enriched for the dog’s inclusion. I also found myself wanting to drop what else I was doing to find out what happened to poor ole Lucinda next, and not sure whether to root for Cronin or Lucas, or hate Cronin or Lucas. Why? I can’t tell you without spoiling the story.
All in all, Clarissa Johal did a fine job creating her intriguing characters and story. For a fascinating, spooky read, check out Between for yourself!
The Story: It starts off very simply, but purposefully. You quickly get a feel for the main character, her surroundings and her lifestyle. It teases you, making you think this will be a light read. Fear not! You will have a hard time putting this story down. As the plot unfolds, it's hard to imagine a satisfying resolution. By the last few chapters I was stumped as to how the author could possibly answer the remaining questions that hung in the balance. Well, she delivers above and beyond with drama and a little humor to boot. I fully recommend this book / format.
