More Than Sorrow

by Vicki Delany

Poisoned Pen Press | September 4, 2012 | Hardcover

More Than Sorrow is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.
Once, Hannah Manning was an internationally-renowned journalist and war correspondent. Today, she''s a woman suffering from a traumatic brain injury. Haunted by her memories, Hannah goes to her sister''s small-scale vegetable farm in Prince Edward County, Ontario to recover and spend time with her ten-year-old niece, Lily.

Hannah retreats into the attic full of boxes and mouldy letters that have accumulated for more than two centuries. As she reads about the original settlers of this land, she is increasingly drawn to the space beneath the old house.

More than carrots, potatoes, soups and jams are down in the dark, damp root cellar. Hannah experiences visions of a woman emerging from the icy cold mist. Is the woman real?

In this modern Gothic novel of heart-wrenching suspense, past and present merge into a terrifying threat to the only thing Hannah still holds dear—Lily.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great New Mystery from Vicky Delany I have been immensely enjoying the Constable Molly Smith series by Vicky Delany therefore I was looking forward to this new stand alone novel. I really enjoyed it. What an interesting combination of past and present. I loved that Delany explored the rarely talked about United Empire Loyalists. I have a few of those in my background so interesting to read about them in a fiction novel. Good mystery. Good story. Enjoyable read. What more can you ask for?

About the Author

Having taken early retirement from her job as a systems analyst in the high-pressure financial world, Vicki Delaney is settling down into the rural life in bucolic Prince Edward County, Ontario.

Editorial Reviews

"In a change of pace from her Con. Molly Smith mysteries (Among the Departed), Delany has written a splendid Gothic thriller with a theme of strong women throughout history. Readers will be captivated by the haunted root cellar and how Delany contrasted one woman’s struggles in the past with the plight of contemporary refugees. Match with Deborah Lawrenson’s The Lantern or Katherine Howe’s The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane."--Library Journal

"An absorbing whodunit-cum-flashbacks whose so-so mystery is redeemed by a deft use of historical parallels." --Kirkus Reviews

“Her exceptional ability to create characters, both realistic and sometimes creepy, makes this another terrific addition to her outstanding body of work.”—Library Journal Starred review for Among the Departed
