Goodreads Review - Orchid by Shane KP O'Neill

's review
Jun 10, 13

Read in June, 2013

A broken man stands at the grave of his wife, his world turned upside down as he watches while her casket is lowered into the damp earth. Distraught beyond consoling, he aches for her presence. What is he to do without her? How will he find the strength to live on alone?

As the main character struggles with his pain, his mind isn't thinking clearly. Grief overwhelms him, until a mysterious stranger offers him the impossible.

This book is a quick read but really delves into the sorrow a person experiences with the loss of a loved one. It also touches upon how easily it is to cross the threshold into insanity when a desperate heart wants something that can no longer be,

Dark,, intense and written with an expert hand, Orchid is a must read for fans of Stephen King's 'Pet Cemetery.' Warning: once you start, you won't be able to put this one down until the final word is read.
