More Than Sorrow

by Vicki Delany

Poisoned Pen Press | September 4, 2012 | Kobo Edition (eBook)

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. Unable to read, unable to concentrate, full of pain, lost and confused, haunted by her memories, Hannah goes to her sister’s small-scale vegetable farm in Prince Edward County, Ontario to recover. As summer settles on the farm, she finds comfort in the soft rolling hills and neat fields as well as friendship in the company of Hila Popalzai, an Afghan woman also traumatized by war. Unable to read the printed word, Hannah retreats into the attic and boxes of moldy letters that have accumulated for more than two centuries. As she learns about the original settlers of this land, Loyalist refugees fleeing the United States in 1784, she is increasingly drawn to the space beneath the old house. More than carrots and 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? Or the product of a severely damaged brain? Which would be worse? Then Hila disappears. When Hannah cannot account for her time, not even to herself, old enemies begin to circle. 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 – her ten-year-old niece, 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?
