Review & Giveaway: Harrisville by Mark Gordon Smith


Scott has a vision one night and he is convinced that this vision has been shown to him for a reason. He sets out to find answers and in the meantime, he meets with Bertha. Bertha tells the story of Mary Capstone and her mother who move to the town of Harrisville. Two men have set their sights on Mary and both are determined to have her. The town undergoes massive changes because of these men and their actions. Scott finds out more than he bargained for about the town he calls home.

I got lost in this story. It is so beautifully written that I felt like I was transported into another time. A wonderful tale that will hopefully be the first of many.
