Giveaway - The Mill River Recluse by Darcie Chan

Disfigured by the blow of an abusive husband, the widow Mary McAllister has spent almost sixty years secluded in a white marble mansion overlooking the town of Mill River, Vermont. Her links to the outside world are few: the mail, an elderly priest, and a bedroom window with a view of the town below.

Most longtime residents of Mill River consider the marble house and its occupant peculiar, and few of them have ever seen Mary. But three newcomers - a police officer and his daughter and a new schoolteacher - are curious about the reclusive old woman. Only the town priest truly knows the Mill River recluse, and the secret she keeps . . . a secret that, once revealed, will change the town, and the lives of its residents, forever.

In the old-fashioned tradition of Kim Edwards (The Memory Keeper's Daughter, The Lake of Dreams), The Mill River Recluse is a story of triumph over tragedy, one that reminds us of the value of friendship and the mysterious ways that love can come from the most unexpected places.

I recently reviewed The Mill River Recluse by Darcie and have one paperback copy to give away. All you have to do is enter below. There a few things you can do to gain extra entries in the giveaway but they're not mandatory so don't feel you have to.

  1. Great giveaway, thanks. I would go somewhere warm and sunny, where I could look out over an inspiring view. Not remote though I would want to be able to wander to a local cafe for refreshment and fresh inspiration!

    1. I agree - I like peace and quiet but I'd want to be within walking distance of civilisation.

  2. Somewhere like the Maldives would be lovely
