Review: Some Kind Of Fairy Tale By: Graham Joyce

Some Kind Of Fairy TaleSome Kind Of Fairy Tale by Graham Joyce
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Suspend your beliefs and read a tale that glistens like dew in gossamer dreams (or nightmares, depending on your likes).
Tara Martin has landed on her family's front porch 20 years after going missing and she hasn't aged a bit. As her parents, brother, and old boyfriend are confounded simply by her presence and looks, they are asked to listen to a most unusual tale. We, the reader, are privy to reunion and what once was buried is now revealed. The pain becomes fresh again especially when Tara tells her story and that in her mind, she has only been gone for 6 months. But coming back has set off a chain reaction that impacts everyone that she comes in contact with.
Written in such a way, you will find yourself getting lost into a story that is reminiscent of Irish tales and lore. Curl up with some tea in a comfy chair and be lead in the forgotten beliefs of long ago set in the present day.
