I love the Novel SEVEN LOCKS. As a body language expert, I was particularly fascinated with the communities shunning of the main character and how it effected her.
The writing was wonderful. I wanted to savor every sentence. Recently I have been reading novels based in the old west and the Heroine has the same Moxie as the frontier women in the wonderful book, "These Is My Words." That I just lent to my friend Pat MacEnulty. Pat is a Novelist and has strong female leads in her work so I know she will love that book as well as SEVEN LOCKS.'
Goodness, I sound like an advertisement, but they are both good books. Here is the description of SEVEN LOCKS.
The Hudson River Valley, 1769: A man mysteriously disappears without a trace, abandoning his wife and children on their farm at the foot of the Catskill Mountains. At first many believe that his wife, who has the reputation of being a scold, has driven her husband away, but as the strange circumstances of his disappearance circulate, a darker story unfolds. And as the lines between myth and reality fade in the wilderness, and an American nation struggles to emerge, the lost man’s wife embarks on a desperate journey to find the means to ensure her family’s survival
