August 2015 Book of the Month.
A page-turner of a family drama that twists and wrenches at your heart strings. The author sets in motion a series of harrowing events and allows the reader glimpses and flashes of knowledge and understanding long before the mum of the family, Jenna. The tension and suspense increases dramatically, there are times of frustration, of almost wanting to shout a warning as the ominous clouds gather threateningly. Susan Lewis successfully brings this family to life, you find yourself along side them, berating a decision made, wryly smiling at a teenagers comeback or clucking over them when the going gets really tough. The subject matter is on occasion difficult to read, however there is an empathy and compassion that protectively hovers over proceedings and offers a sanctuary. ‘Too Close To Home’ is touching, emotional and completely captivating, as the last page is turned, a sense of contemplation and reflection lies in wait. ~ Liz Robinson
