The Homecoming of Samuel Lake - Jenny Wingfield

I've been hearing great things about this book and was hoping it would live up to my expectations. And it did.

The characters in this story were real, and fully-fleshed out, making the story interesting and horrifying. The funny thing is, despite the fact that there is a terrifying, disgusting man who made my skin crawl, he wasn't even the only part that had me eagerly turning pages, waiting to find out what happens/what he does. I also couldn't wait to find out what happened with a little girl, a husband and wife and the woman who wanted to come between them, a lonely man who tried to do what was right, and a terrified little boy. And the fact that that was as interesting and captivating as a scary man who bullies, hurts and almost kills his family probably every day of their lives says something about the characters and the story that drew me in.
