Book Review - The Strongman and the Mermaid byKathleen Shoop (The Donora Story Collection Book 2) - A captivating historic environmental drama wrapped in a love story in Donora, Pennsylvania.
Available in Kindle and Paperback on Amazon -http://smarturl.it/hsjnd8
The Strongman and The Mermaid goes way beyond fiction, Kathleen Shoop's words paint a picture of life that comes alive in the readers mind, all senses are experienced and emotions are felt. This is an historical fiction lovers dream! An absolutely outstanding read full of myths, traditions, festivities, historical facts and hardships experienced by a town mixed with different nationalities living and working in 1910 Donora, where existence was created by the mines and steel mills.
I loved how the story begins in 2019, Donora, as Lucy, and her young son Owen try to re-home grandpa Patryk they find a treasured book that was created by his wife and sister. As as they sit down to listen to grandpa, the story of Donora many years ago in 1910, Mary and Lukasz takes us vividly back in time.
Two sad, lonely souls, Lucasz and Mary, in other parts of the world, dream of what life could be, genuine soul mates waiting for their paths to gradually cross.
My heart broke many times following young Czech Mary, her daunting days were filled with sheer hard work, worry and stress of living in poverty with her family. She had moments of joy and feelings of being loved but also had disappointment after disappointment. All her dreams and hopes belonged to the future when her life really would start, she would marry well to a man she loved and have the house she had dreamed about for so long.
Then we have Lukasz, a Polish boy who longed for more in his life. He had the opportunity of a ticket to live the American dream in Donora, he would have a job, live in a lovely home with a lovely wife, all fed by an exaggerated truth of life in Donora, a life full of hardship.
As you read their moving story you will see the darkened skies of Donora, hear the noise from the mills that filled the town with so much thick smoky air and sense and feel how it would stick to your skin and lungs as every breath was taken by the those who lived there. Yet will also feel the sense of pride by the people who lived there to have a self built home and employment, regardless of the conditions. You will enjoy reading about the myths and festivities that took place, my favorite being Midsummers eve and the throwing of the crowns into the river for a potential suitor to be found.
Kathleen Shoop's characters are always so interesting, their back stories always so intriguing, you will find yourself no longer in reality but transported back to a time gone by in any of her books. In this one, you will laugh, you will feel the sense of warmth and joy from kindness, you will feel the sense of crushing from harshness, you will feel yourself rooting for the characters that have taken a hold of you from this beautiful, treasured tale. Now my joint favorite read, alongside The Last Letter, from one of my favorite authors.

As usually David Burnett connects the reader easily in to the story and it's characters. Erin and Chris haven't been together for years, their two young girls live with Erin, and they haven't seen Chris since the divorce. Erin is driven by her passion of work and the wealth it will eventually bring as she rises higher on the ladder of success. She was never content with her life in the suburbs which is one of the main reasons for divorce as she felt that Chris had little motivation to achieve more in life than he already had.
Erin's dream finally becomes reality as she gets the promotion she so desires but it comes with a huge problem, the work will take up all her days and nights and will leave her no time for her children who are due to be off for the summer holidays. Having no where else to turn she reluctantly turns to Chris for help, but worries about the two of them connecting after all this time and how each other will respond and the feelings it might bring to the surface.
The author takes us through their journey which is full of deliberations, second thoughts, miscommunications and deep hidden love, which has you wondering if either will open up to each other. There are times to smile through the story and times of suspense as the story takes a twist.

Another brilliant and excellent psychological thriller and we are on the case again with Brandon Fisher and his acquaintances.
How do you find out who is sending decapitated heads as messages? Carolyn Arnold's brilliant insight to detective lines of inquiry and thought process is second to none. The creation of smart and intelligent criminals adds to the story line with no hints as to the mastermind behind the killings or their reason for them. keeps the reader enrapt and intrigued. The book is a fast paced page turner that keeps the reader enrapt and intrigued to find out if the authorities will catch the culprit before he strikes again.
I have read several novels by the author and have never been disappointed in their content, intrigue, brilliant descriptive writing and the way she draws to her conclusions. The characters go from strength to strength in every novel they appear.
Having read a lot of British murder mysteries, Carolyn is becoming one of my favorites from over the pond and always look forward to her next publication and should be on any readers list. As with any good detective series I hope they make it into a TV series.
"And...?" he asked as he stepped toward her.
She tried to speak, but her mouth had gone bone dry. A devilish grin spread across his face. There he is. My big bad wolf.
