An Intriguing Tale That Ends With A Twist!

Malcolm is serving his sentence in a cruel and unusual way. Banished to a remote island in Alaska, he has no contact with the outside world. His only outlet is through his art. Constantly painting the woman he lost the day he committed his crime while defending her honor.

Then one day his routine is changed when a very small young woman with metal wings falls off his roof and into the bushes. Is she a fairy, a robot, a sophisticated doll, or some sort of high tech spy drone? She claims to have been once human, but her memories are faulty. She could be his one chance at an early pardon out of his sentence, but the more time he spends with her, the more he learns to care for her.

One of the things I really enjoy about C.E. Wilson's stories are her characterizations. She has the ability to write extremely compelling characters that are not only believable, but move you. You feel as they do, the highs and the lows. Another thing I always appreciate is the diversity and adversity that her characters struggle with. In every story that I've ever read by this talented author, she has presented a story in which the characters are up against that which is outside the norm, and therefore left open to ridicule by others. The hidden gem is often how they stand up to society in spite of the hurdles placed in front of them.

While this is the second book in the 'Somewhere in Between' series, it can be read at any time. It is definitely a standalone novel and so far has no relation to the first in the series. Overall an intriguing and sweet story with an interesting twist at the end.
