I was provided with a copy of The Mill River Redemption for an honest review.
This touching story opened immediately at a tragedy, with the sudden death of her husband, Josie DiSanti was very frightened of her future bringing up her two young daughters on her own. The only place Josie felt she could go was to seek shelter at her aunt’s house in a small town called Mill River.
The story develops into an interesting family saga. It has many twists and turns and unexplained events come to light which changes the future of all concerned. I liked how the story flitted from one timeline to another, it felt like two novels in one. At times the story was very sad and touching but there were moments that were heart warming, fun and a little magical.
I enjoyed this novel immensely, it kept me engaged and I couldn’t quite believe the direction it went. I wasn’t expecting it and how the author wrote and described this scene made it all the more believable. I will certainly look out for more works by Darcie Chan. An enjoyable 4/5 read.
