Sara Davison’s (or is it the watcher’s?) voice is fresh and vivid, with strong descriptive skills. This debut Canadian author is worth checking out.     Read more …

This book is really interesting, because it’s narrated by a “person/thing” that you have no idea who it is.  I guessed numerous times and each time I was wrong, it’s not until the very end you get to know who it is.

Davison’s action scenes are dynamite. She knows how to ratchet up the tension (of which there is plenty) and how to relax us and put us off our guard… Read more …

There are few fiction authors who can hold my attention completely.  Too often I find myself picking out the snippets where they told the story rather than showed it, or where they have settled for redundancy, or where they have taken a shortcut to get to the end of the story.  Then there are the handful of fiction authors who grab my imagination from the first page and don’t let go until I have read the final word.  Author Sara Davison is one of those writers.  Read more …

The greatest strength of this novel is its narrative voice. Davison and her narrator are utterly confident, even masterful. The narrator speaks directly to the reader and his or her identity is not known until the last page. While the story moves back and forth in time over a twenty year period, this is done with tremendous skill, allowing for a slow reveal of a devastating story.

I was reminded at times of the novel that was popular a year or two ago, The Shack in both the subject matter and the themes of grace and forgiveness, but I also saw elements that reminded me of John Bunyan, CS Lewis and more. At the same time, this is a contemporary, Canadian suspense novel with a mystery and a thriller dimension to it.
