Once there was a girl who ran away and joined a traveling carnival. She married a man she grew to hate—and gave birth to a child she could never love. A child so monstrous that she killed it with her own hands…Twenty-five years later, Ellen Harper has a new life, a new husband, and two normal children—Joey loves monster movies, and Amy is about to graduate from high school. But their mother drowns her secret guilt in alcohol and prayer. The time has come for Amy and Joey to pay for her sins…
Because Amy is pregnant.
And the carnival is coming back to town.
I’ve only been to a carnival once or twice but after reading this book I’ll never go again.
Really suspenseful and creepy with well-defined characters and “beasties”and plenty of blood and guts. Horror at it’s best, written by one of the best.
If you like spooky, this is for you.
A talented graphic artist, Shannon Bodine’s life revolved around her job at a prestigious New York advertising agency. But her world was turned upside down whe she learned the identity of her real father: Thomas Concannon. Respecting her late mother’s last wish, Shannon reluctantly traveled to County Clare. There, her loneliness and shame melted away in the embrace of the family she never knew existed. And amid the lush Irish landscape steeped in mysticism and legend, she discovered the possibility of a love that was meant to be…
A wonderful conclusion to a romantic Irish series by Nora Roberts. No one can tell a tale the way she does. Fantastic read.
Once there was a little bunny. He was all alone. One day he found an egg. He could hear something moving inside the egg. What was it?
So begins the Golden Easter classic about a bunny—and a little duck that is about to hatch!
I wanted an Easter Book to send to my niece and her cousin (ages almost 2 and 15 months) and although this isn’t an Easter Book per se it has a bunny and a duckling which was good enough for me.
The bunny finds an egg and tries to find out what’s inside by throwing small pebbles at it and rolling it down a hill among other things. All of this exertion wears him out and he falls asleep and while he’s resting the egg breaks open and there is a yellow downed duckling .
He sees the sleeping bunny and uses the same methods as the bunny to wake him up but to no avail. When the bunny does wake up and see the little duckling they are both happy because now they are not alone.
Cute book and nice illustrations
