The Wicked Sister

1 Mins read
The Wicked Sister by Karen Dionne front cover

In this all-new psychological thriller, Karen Dionne again sets her drama in the sparsely populated, heavily wooded Upper Peninsula of Michigan, and again the natural world plays an important role, underlining themes and supporting the action. The main character, 26-year-old Rachel, even talks to animals. Dionne’s light touch makes these interactions more revealing of Rachel than weird. Rachel is fragile. She’s just spent 15 years in a mental institution believing she murdered her parents. With chapters narrated by both her mother (“then”) and Rachel (“now”), you learn what really happened and pray for Rachel’s escape. Our full review here.
