STILLWATER RISING by STEENA HOLMES


STILLWATER RISING by STEENA HOLMES



I know this book is not due out until November 2014, but I just had to read it. 

I was so lucky to get my hands on this book of one of my favorite authors [Steena Holmes] through Lake Union Publishing Via Net Galley. I was jumping up and down when they sanctioned I could read it ahead of time.

Steena Holmes has such a lovely way of making her books come alive in your hands, makes you want to be there, right in the midst of all that is happening and help out, give advice. It was no different in this one. 

This subject matter is a thought provoking one. 

As the age old cliché goes 'there are two sides to every story' and this is no doubt an exact action of this cliché.

We have a Mom who lost her boy in a shooting, except, he was the shooter. We have Moms who lost their children because of him.
They all live in a Village, all friends. 

The aftermath is not just about the deaths. Its more than this.

That is all I am saying on the subject!

I was hooked on this read from beginning to end. It really was an eye opener and makes you think of both sides of the coin. 

What would you do? What would I do? Who knows. 

Don't miss out reading this, you won't regret it. Its something that will stay with you for a very long time after you close the final page your mind will still be ticking over. 

The book release is expected 11th November 2014. Mark it to read.



After losing her son in an elementary school shooting that devastates the tight-knit community of Stillwater Bay, Jennifer Crowne finds herself unable to settle back into her role of perfect stay-at-home mom and committee organizer. Meanwhile, her best friend, Mayor Charlotte Stone, struggles to keep the town together, and Charlotte’s husband, the school principal, may not be the hero everyone thinks him to be.

As they try to heal from this irrevocable trauma, Jenn and Charlotte find themselves at a crossroads—within the town and within their friendship. For Jenn, broken and grieving, there is no going back, and she demands that the school be closed so that she can bury the past. Yet Charlotte is equally desperate to hold the town together, fighting the school closure and helping the shooter’s mother regain her place in the community. Jenn and Charlotte’s relationship is put to the ultimate test as each weighs her own interests against the bonds of their friendship
