The Reckoning at Gossamer Pond is more than a good read, it’s an experience, a journey the reader takes with Libby, from 1907, and Annaliese, from current time. The storyline moves back and forth as the author sets up the suspenseful tale of a town full of secrets. Some residents are set on revealing these hidden events, while others are determined to conceal it all.

Although the story is challenging to follow at the very beginning, the gradual intertwining of the two time periods is masterfully achieved, and there are no loose ends. The setting, both past and present, is haunting but real; the characters find ways to burrow into the readers’ mind and heart; the plot twists its way along until the last pages.

I will avoid spoilers, but to say that where sin abounds, so does grace. A beautifully written book.
