Maelstrom – 1st Time Free this Weekend
Here’s an opportunity for my wife Francis’ 4th novel, free until Monday – a Maelstrom of a read it tis. Quite different than Fran’s earlier and more humane Crater Lake Series, Maelstrom shows a much darker side of humanity epitomized by Sheriff Bert Calder of 1970’s small town America.
Having read the novel just before it was released in early 2016, and then reading the review of the novel in Fran’s blog post, a flash of insight came to me – Maelstrom is a powerful allegorical read for our times especially considering the dark undercurrent of the 2016 United States presidential campaign.
Ultimately it is warning of how our silence and complacency against terrible injustices can lead us to collective senselessness and individual inhumanity. I recommend Maelstrom as a goodread for our times – but brace yourself… all is not well in small town America.
