Next month, Ellen Marie Wiseman will be Zooming in to the RBC. Here is the book and my short review:
The Lost Girls of Willowbrook, by Ellen Marie Wiseman:
Leave it to Ellen Marie Wiseman to give us an historical fiction that I'm sure very few, if any, of us have heard about. And let me tell you that in her usual manner she makes us feel what went on at Willowbrook State School on Staten Island. In her latest, The Lost Girls of Willowbrook, we learn about the incredible abuses that so many children suffered at this institution from the late 1940s until the late 1980s. Through the central character, Sage, whose twin sister, Rosemary, was admitted a number of years earlier, we learn exactly how the residents were treated. At times it's difficult reading. But that's exactly what makes an historical fiction so affecting. And, believe me, you won't be able to put this one down. Ellen Marie Wiseman has struck again! Pick up a copy...quickly.
I also have a review of Kimberly Belle's latest, The Personal Assistant. She is not currently scheduled to Zoom in to the RBC. But she has come once before, and I will try to schedule her for this book. Plus, she was kind enough to send me an ARC.
