The arrivals by Melissa Marr

cynthia-the-arrivals.jpgA mix of western, fantasy and love story – not what I normally read, but it gives the brain a workout to read something different. People from different eras suddenly find themselves transported to an alien world. Although the charcters were intresting and the setting well described, the story could of been handled in so much more depth. I did not fall completely into the story which was such a shame.

The bones of paradise by Jonis Agee

cynthia-the-bones-of-paradise.jpgI was slowly drawn into this fractured family trying to live (I should say survive) in the Nebraska Sand Hills after two bodies are discovered. You are then taken through the events following this discovery and the events that led up to the murders. The story was harsh, sad, hopeful and a good history lesson, a very good western story. I learnt about the horror of Wounded Knee and the harsh life of a rancher. And like any good western it had a touch of romance as well.
