“Astor, Ontario, 1904. A boy staggers out of the forest covered in blood and collapses at the feet of 16-year-old Emmy. While others are suspicious and afraid, Emmy is drawn to him. Is he really the monster the townsfolk say he is?
“Astor, Ontario, 1994. Megan arrives from London for her great grandmother Emmy’s 105th birthday. It should be a happy family occasion, but Megan is nursing a broken heart and carrying a secret she fears might consume her.”
Stranger is a beautiful book which pieces together the connected stories from 1904 and 1994 all the way through. It is written in such a way that you can really empathise with the characters, even if you have nothing in common with them.
Keren David has written a really enjoyable, suspenseful story that kept me hooked literally until the last page!
