Rowan in the Oak Tree: A Review

I grabbed a copy of this eBook when it was free about four months ago as I was intrigued by the blurb.

This book made me very sad. It’s a great little story and very well written but it doesn’t have a happy ending. It’s a tough subject to write about but this is one of the few books I’ve read about this kind of thing that really had me emotionally engaged.

With books like this it’s very hard to make people feel for the main chracter because they’re already in the ‘hell’ and suffering before the book begins but the little bits of thoughts and Rowan’s outlook on life made her easy to relate to.

My only little niggle was the ending. I felt there should have been a little bit more before the very end bit, to show the ending happening, before we’re told the results, but otherwise I think this was masterfully told.
