The community of authors is a wondrous one in many ways. They write stories to get lost in--what could be more magical than that? Also wondrous is how they welcome a newbie in with open arms. I would not be having a book published at all without intervention from a great author at one pivotal juncture. Others read my work and said things about it that bolstered me, while still others offered support, encouragement, and reflections on their own tough roads, all enabling me to stay in the game. Thank you to all the great writers for the inspiration, hope, and help.
Milchman shows her chops with this sophomore effort (following Cover of Snow, 2013), and she carves out a new niche with this unusual mix of ecothriller and family suspense drama.
Milchman weaves a complex and intriguing tale, adeptly pacing the narrative as danger escalates. . . . Most impressive, though, is Liz’s transformation from a meek wife . . . to a strong, capable woman determined to rescue her children at any cost to herself.
Essential for psychological thriller fanatics, Milchman's second novel trumps her acclaimed debut, Cover of Snow. Extreme heart pounding action follows this determined mother as she risks everything to save her children.
The storyline is tight and suspenseful…Milchman has a gift that allows her to delve deep into the mind and psyche of her characters, and fans of dark plots like the works of Gillian Flynn will find another author to savor.
