REVIEW: Tuesday's Child

Tuesday’s Child

By: Carolyn Gibbs

To someone on the outside Lane Harris appears to have it all. She lives in the biggest mansion in the town, her father controls the jobs, and she has servants to answer to her every beck and call. Having such a “perfect” life has taken its toll on Lane. Hated by every kid in school, ostracized for being her father’s daughter her only friend is Ray.

When Lane disappears from town everyone looks at Ray. Being a man of the cloth affords him no mercy under the scrutiny of the small town, or from his brother, who happens to be the town Sherriff. Ray ignores the whispers and the looks; his only concern is for Lane, because Ray is the only person who might know why she really left.

Unloved, beaten and treated like a servant herself, Lane finds her very life in danger when she is left to fend for herself in Seattle. Homeless and afraid of her own shadow Lane fights to find a way to regain some normalcy in her life. But who can she trust and where can she hide until then?

From the very beginning I fell in love with Lane. I wanted to scoop her up and take her home with me. Packed with mystery, tragedy and a small twist here and there, Tuesday’s Child exposes the dark world of teenage abandoned children. Through Lane’s heart wrenching story the reader will wander the frightening alleys of homelessness in a big city, absolute loneliness in the wild and the power of good in people as they fight against the raw evil that lurks in some.

Carolyn Gibbs gives a voice to the muted masses left on the streets or fighting for their lives behind the facade of a perfect family. She will capture your heart and move you to make a change in the juvenile system.

A great read for anyone. Check in on Carolyn’s website and keep an eye open for the upcoming sequel.
