The House on Foster Hill is Jaime Jo Wright’s debut novel.
The cover perfectly embodies the look and feel of the house that the story unfolds in. Set during two time-lines in Wisconsin, the story twists and turns through the generational lives of two women, Ivy and Kaine. Each woman has her own sets of trials they must endure that sets their emotional, mental, and physical limits to their reaches.
Murder and death lead to mayhem and the feel of fear, sadness, and joy that were some of the emotions that ran through me as I read and felt how each woman lived through everything they did and must do to retain their sanity and justice for others. I noted that the writing was geared towards Christian beliefs and ensured each character lived and embodied their faith. I liked how the book was written with women heavily being the heroes, protagonists, and as a multitude of characters throughout.
I found it easy to follow along on each woman’s time-line; written in such a way that nothing was missed and everything that occurred was linked to each woman. It was a fast-paced, yet a quick read for me, watching everything intertwine and, finally, unraveling the dark, mysterious histories.
I do wish a bit more was written of each woman’s endings and how lives were lived after. It was, all-in-all, an amazing debut novel and I truly am looking forward to more works from her.
