Stormy Fall Nights.

There is a big storm hitting Vancouver this weekend… So a new book seems like the BEST way to hide out inside, and get all cozy.

I have heard nothing but rave reviews for Emma Donoghue’s new book “The Wonder”, and I can’t wait to devour it tonight. I will link the plot from the book jacket as well, in case you wanted to check it out <3

I will be posting an “October Wrap Up” at the end of this month, giving full reviews of my Top 5 favorite books of the month. Hopefully this one will make the cut. Have an amazing weekend, and if you are in Vancouver.. stay inside!

{An Irish village is mystified by what appears to be a miracle but may actually be murder in the next masterpiece from New York Times—bestselling author Emma Donoghue.

A village in 1850s Ireland is baffled by Anna O’Donnell’s fast. A little girl appears to be thriving after months without food, and the story of this ‘wonder’ has reached fever pitch.

Tourists flock in droves to the O’Donnell family’s modest cabin, and an international journalist is sent to cover the sensational story. Enter Lib, an English nurse trained by Florence Nightingale, who is hired to keep watch for two weeks and determine whether or not Anna is a fraud.

As Anna deteriorates, Lib finds herself responsible not just for the care of a child, but for getting to the root of why the child may actually be the victim of murder in slow motion.

A magnetic novel written with all the spare and propulsive tension that made ROOM a huge bestseller, THE WONDER works beautifully on many levels—as a simple tale of two strangers who will transform each other’s lives, a powerful psychological thriller, and a story of love pitted against evil in its many masks.}

Book Plot Summary: From the Chapters/Indigo Website.
