Hinterland is a fictional story written about family, love, and the importance of a father’s love for her daughter. Nicholas has a five-year-old daughter named Kate. Kate’s life falls apart when her mother disappears, and Nicholas does not reveal the real reason that has happened. This causes a lot of friction and ultimately results in Kate running away. At the same time, Ina, Nicholas’s childhood best friend and neighbor, is an outstanding person in Nicholas’s life. With the added drama, she too finds herself in an unsettled place.
I found myself really drawn to the story. I really bonded with Kate and felt her pain. The want and need for answers were so apparent and vital for Kate. She needed to achieve some sort of balance in her life. Nicholas was an interesting character. His love for his daughter was admirable. The story discussed mental illness and had an exciting twist to it. I found it appealing and pleasing to read.
The story had a steady pace to it, and the literature was written well. I look forward to reading more from this author. I believe she has the potential to write books in the same genre.
I recommend the book to people who like to read on mental issues, schizophrenia, and family-oriented tales.Tweet
