Book Review / Snow Flakes by Ruth Ware


When a barrier between truth and illusion grows stronger, a family’s trust crumbles in this arresting short story by the number one New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in Cabin 10.

Leah has spent her formative years isolated on a remote island with her family. But their quiet existence, far from the devastated mainland, is cracking. Father, sensing a coming threat, demands that a wall be built. As the stone blockade rises, Father’s paranoia escalates. So does Leah’s dread that the violence the family left behind has found its way to their sanctuary.

Ruth Ware’s Snowflakes is part of Hush, a collection of six stories, ranging from political mysteries to psychological thrillers, in which deception can be a matter of life and death. Each piece can be read or listened to in one truly chilling sitting.

I will be honest and say that this book was the reason I decided to pick up the books in the Hush Collection (through Amazon).  Ruth Ware is one of my favourite authors and any oppportunity to read something new from her I will definately pick up.  This collection also has the added bonus of trying new authors as well as reading books that I enjoy.

I thoroughly enjoyed this story and following Leah.  As this is such a short story there is a lot I can't talk about because I don't want to spoil the story for you but this one is definitely worth picking up, especially if you enjoy reading this author's writing.  Also, if you are a fan of thrillers give this one a go.  If you like this Ruth Ware has written many other really great books...
