Where the Crawdads Sing

New book review up!

Posted on Updated on

Hello, Write Edge readers! I’m back with another book review. Today I share my thoughts on the recent release The Day She Came Back by veteran women’s fiction author Amanda Prowse. Here’s the opening to my review:

A teenager is left without any family after her last living relative dies. She’s shocked, then, when the mother she thought had died of a drug overdose comes back, healthy and very much alive. The teen must decide if she can forgive her mother for disappearing and figure out how to move on. Acclaimed women’s fiction author Amanda Prowse is back with another winning novel about grief and restarting relationships in The Day She Came Back.

Also, another reminder for you writers out there looking for writing exercises. This Friday I’m back with another episode of Biblio Breakdown on The Writescast Network. I’m talking about the mood of a piece — how to set it and how to maintain it — within the context of The Ancestor by Danielle Trussoni. If you’re curious what the Biblio Breakdown might be, check out the last episode I did about patient storytelling within Where the Crawdads Sing. Then subscribe and mark your calendars for the newest episode!

Stay safe, stay home, and stay hydrated, readers!
