The Refuge by Heidi Martin (Book Review #218)


This review was written for Online Book Club

“I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars.”

This book was an “ Book of the Day.”

The refuge is a story about Anna Waters. She is married to Fredrick. Anna is a lawyer and spends long hours working away avoiding her husband. A horrible incident in the past has caused friction between the couple. Fredrick does not know how to handle things and Anna refuses to talk about it. Fredrick files for divorce and that is when Anna’s journey to self-discovery begins.

I thoroughly enjoyed the journey this author took us, in understanding Anna better. It describes why she behaves the way she does and how hard life has been for her ever since the incident happened. Anna has to confront herself through the move she makes and the new people she meets. The message this book brings, I believe, is very helpful to anyone that is going through difficult times. The novel is not a memoir but a work of fiction; however, it does seem to be close to the author.

The literary standard of the book was in good shape. The layout and structure of the story were put together with a steady pace and had an interesting plot to it. I believe the author has great potential in writing similar style fiction novels.

No one can really understand the pain, and the suffering someone else goes through. That is because everyone’s tolerance toward matters differs. In this case, Anna has to overcome fear and accept reality. The novel does have a romantic side to it, which was pleasant.

I believe anyone that enjoys an inspirational story will like this book.
