CFBA Review: Soul’s Prisoner by:Cara Luecht
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
A Word from the Author: I never planned to be a writer. In fact, it took me a while to finish college. But I did, and here I am. And I now I can’t imagine not being a writer. By day, I am an English Instructor for a local college, mother to four amazing children, and wife to an eternally patient and supportive husband. In the evening, when I can squirrel away some quiet time, I read and write historical fiction. I have a B.A. in English Lit. from UW Whitewater and an M.F.A in Creative Writing from Fairleigh Dickinson University in Madison, NJ. If you have a question for me, or if you are local and would like me to stop by your book club or writer’s group, please drop me a line via the “Ask the Author” tab. I always love the opportunity to meet with others who share my love of books.
ABOUT THE BOOK
She’ll fight for her future…but can she escape her past?
Chicago, Winter, 1891
Rachel is in danger. She s seen too much.
She creeps along the cement walls through the dank underbelly of the asylum. She d never planned to leave her quiet farm life, never thought she d find a place in the city, never imagined she d be in the kind of danger that would have her cowering in Dunning s cold, labyrinthine basement.
Jenny has finally found her place. After a childhood of abuse, she has friends, a real job, and her only wish is to give her adopted son the kind of life she never had.
A life of stability, without the risk and uncertainty of a father.
But when Jeremy, Rachel s brother, stumbles into their warehouse, asking for help to find his missing sister, Jenny s carefully constructed life begins to crumble.
As the writer introduces us yet to a more profound character, Rachel. A woman that never quite seen herself to be where she has now ended up. And still another character added into the mix, Jenny which makes the book even more interesting! The authors writing along with rich characters provides a back drop rich in color and drama. Her writing is unlike anyone’s I have ever read. I thought I would like the book but it is a nit mesmerizing to say the least. It is a very profound story that I thoroughly enjoyed!
**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the author.
