Steena Holmes’ novel The Forgotten Ones is a slow-paced thriller that questions the idea of what makes a family and how a family can break apart. At its heart, the story is about the choices a person faces when caught between family and what is right. Silence has a price, even if it seems convenient at the time.
It's an intriguing story with a compelling narrative and an enjoyable story line. The characters are alternately sympathetic and horrific. I thought Ms. Holmes also did a good job of exploring aspects of mental illness, particularly bipolar disorder. And the mystery will keep you on the edge of your seat from the start of the book until the end.

I read a lot - depending on my writing schedule, I can usually read about a book a day. Some of the books are fantastic and I would love to recommend to everyone - some, not so much. Either way, I thought I would share a few thoughts on what I'm reading at the moment.
