The Mill River Recluse by Darcie Chan

leave a comment »

At AMAZON this (downloaded) book sells for only 99 cents.   It is well worth 99 cents.

This story is set in rural Vermont.   A main character in the novel is Mary Hayes.   The story is set in two different times frames: (1) takes place in the early 1940’s (2) takes place now.   Mary is a very shy person.   In fact, it is more than just being shy-she has a mental condition.

Mary marries into a very rich family -the McAllister family.   She meets her husband when she is only 19 years old-he just graduated from Harvard.   Throughout this story, Father O’Brien is very helpful to her.   As an adult, Mary spends most of her time (alone) in a large mansion on a hill over-looking the Town of Mill River, Vermont.

At times, the story drags on too long.   It is well written and enjoyable to read.

MY RATING: 7 plus   This is the first novel by Darcie Chan.
