Christa Parrish is an author who does not leave you comfortable while reading her books. She is what I call a gritty author, there is a bit of gritty that challenges you while reading and makes you uncomfortable what you find in yourself.
Still life is Christa’s newest release and you encounter a couple of characters that you might not meet in real life. Ada is born into a religious sect run by her father. A person who rules with an iron fist and uses the Bible to prove his point. Katherine longs for love. Her marriage is a sham and she starts an affair. One that brings her the touch and love she longs for.
Two very different women with very different lives and yet connected through one tragedy. Katherine gives up her seat on a flight home so she cans spend one more night with her lover and Ada’s husband takes it. When the plane goes down the women find that are unsure of where they belong in the world.
Now knowing a little about Christa’s writing, she will have us feeling sorry for both women at some point or another, but each will not be perfect. They will each come with their own set of issues that will need to be worked out.
So not a comfortable read but one that you will make you want to share it with others.
