Trish’s Review

Overall, a great read.

Misery, Rancor, and Angst: or, the Three Graces is a dark, contemporary story about three sisters who want nothing more than to reclaim their family home from a zealous man who controls every aspect of theirs and their mother’s lives. The girls have pretty much been on their own for years, slaving away for the man they hate more than anyone alive, and for good reason.

I really love how the story paints a realistic, yet dark picture of the lives of the three sisters, Vero, Lala, and Gracie. The thing that really drew me along was the suspense, not only for what might happen to the girls, but also what might happen to their mother and great aunt, the house itself, and, of course, Harold, their nemesis.

It’s obvious Harold is abusive, but the story never describes the physical abuse, only the psychological. He seems to think the girls are a pain and a waste of his resources, but he makes them wait on him and forces them to be homeschooled in the ways of the religious leader he adores. A dark backdrop, but one that gives plenty for the girls to overcome over the course of the story.

Overall, I really liked the story because it drew me in and made me care. The conclusion was satisfying, though unexpected. Folks who like dark, contemporary stories with a hint of the paranormal would probably like this book.

The review copy of this book was provided by the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.

About Kirsten B. Feldman

kirsten-b-feldmanI grew up on Cape Cod and the Connecticut shoreline and now live outside of Boston, much too far from the ocean. I am rarely without a book in my hand. A few of my favorites include: A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith, Bastard Out of Carolina by Dorothy Allison, and Every Last One by Anna Quindlen.
