Review: The Roanoke Girls

The Roanoke Girls The Roanoke Girls by Amy Engel
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I started this book with really zero intention of finishing it any time soon. I had a million books ahead of it on my TBR list and I just happened to get stuck somewhere with a dead phone and this book. Just about 24 hrs later I was finished. This novel completely sucked me in to it's hot, dry, twisted world of the Roanoke family and the dark secrets that go on behind the closed doors of an equally warped home that shares their name. The Roanoke Girls tells a story of three generations of broken, dead, or missing Roanoke girls and the family's patriarch. Ms. Engel does an amazing job of creating the backdrop for this story and really sucks the reader into hot, dry, desolate existence of a small town in the middle of nowhere Kansas . She tells a hauntingly tragic story of damaged girls who's knowledge of love is so rotted out that they are left not know how to recognize, believe in, or show love in a true form. This book definitely hit on disturbing topics but is wonderfully written and captivating.
