Stolen Hours; Allen Eskens
Mulholland Books - Sept 7, 2021
Lila Nash counted her steps as she walked from the kitchen to the bathroom of her apartment. Ten, nine, eight--the numbers falling silently in her head, a remnant from those days when she paced from the corridors of the hospital. Seven, six, five--turn into the bathroom--four, three--close the door--two--turn--face the mirror--one.
Her last step had been little more than a shuffle, but it allowed her to stop on one, which somehow eased the clockwork that ticked inside her chest.
What do you think? read more or pass? Today is release day for this book. I've read every book this author has written and this sounds like a good one to me as well.
