New On My Shelf This Week

Author Michelle Schlicher made direct contact, to introduce herself and offer me the opportunity to read her latest work of contemporary literary fiction ‘Come This Way’. I would like to thank her for considering Fiction Books as a suitable review site for her work and I look forward to taking time out from my current run of mystery / thriller reads, to check out this intriguing and interesting story.

The Book … ‘COME THIS WAY

A hiking and outdoor enthusiast, fifty-year-old Fern Conrad can’t imagine spending her time doing anything else, much to the dismay of her daughter, Colby.

Kara Dawson, a twenty-five-year-old student therapist, has shut life out to focus on her sister’s illness. That is, until a chance meeting pushes her to confront the possibilities—by letting go and moving forward.

Eighty-three-year-old Nettie Campbell heals in the hospital while facing the consequences of her actions. Can she repair relationships and forge new bonds as she comes to terms with the truth?

‘Come This Way’ is an emotional, honest look into the lives of women who are discovering their own strength. It is a story about difficult choices and the people around us who help us find our way.

The Author … MICHELLE SCHLICHER

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.
