Descrizione del libro

22 marzo 2013
African proverb: "It takes a village to raise a child". The novel Allawe, promotes the same concept: "All of us". When Marla Alexander finds a mysterious box of ashes washed up on a Delaware beach on the second anniversary of her mother's death, she is compelled to find its owner, a search that will take her and her husband Vern all the way to St. Croix in the US Virgin Islands. But the ashes are entangled with secrets that will result in Marla and Vern being stalked by Obeahmen, practicers of Black Magic, as they become involved not just in tracking down the owner of the ashes, but trying to solve a murder. Readers have found Fran Hasson’s first novel a nailbiter at times, but filled with warmth that emanates from the humanity of the main characters, Marla and Vern, and the Virgin Islanders who befriend them. In addition, the assortment of furry friends both at home and on the island will appeal to animal lovers everywhere. As Marla’s passion to return the ashes propels her forward into frightening circumstances, she also struggles to keep her marriage intact and come to terms with the death of her mother and their at-times strained relationship. The novel weaves themes of love, trust, perseverance, mystery, human weakness, fear, grief, and forgiveness into an astonishing setting. Complete with the tropical flavor of sights, sounds, and smells of St. Croix, the plot coaxes the reader into the world of the many memorable characters. The story begins and ends in Delaware at the beach. For those with the wanderlust, the visit to the tropical island may whet the appetite to hop on a plane and experience the laidback lifestyle of the Caribbean. Or it may make beachgoers in Delaware or anywhere in the world scan the horizon to see what the waves may wash in to liven up their lives. In any event, Allawe will appeal to everyone who loves to read a good mystery and to everyone who can appreciate the value of friends and family – all of us.

5.0 su 5 stelle The perfect book for a lot of places! 18 dicembre 2012
Di Daniel Soulia - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
Like one of the reviewers previously, I am not a fan of modern fiction. To be truthful, I rarely read fiction at all, unless it's from the 17th to the VERY early 20th century. I also don't like mysteries or romances. I prefer history books. But a friend told me about this book, so I got a copy, just because it came so highly recommended.

This is the kind of book that you want on a long airplane flight, or on a cruise, or for a beach vacation. I say that because it literally hooks you into the story from page one, and it's one of those "can't put down" reads! If I were sitting on a plane with several hours to get through, I would love a book like this! I started reading, and literally hours passed before I realized just how long I had been at it!

I have never traveled to the Caribbean, but having read this book, I'm pretty certain I know what the Virgin Islands are like: and now I can't wait to visit! The imagery here is excellent, and the prose is fluid and open. Reading this book felt like the rhythm of Caribbean life as the author described it. It was an especially welcome book for these long, dark winter evenings!

Highly recommend "Allawe". I will be buying copies to give as gifts to friends.

5.0 su 5 stelle Something for Everyone! 12 dicembre 2012
Di P. Hirst - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
There's romance, mystery, cultural exchange, travel info, suspense, personable dogs, local characters............who couldn't find something to like in this book?

Not being a huge fiction fan, I'm amazed at how quickly I was drawn into the story and how smoothly it flowed. Not a page was wasted on non-pertinent description or detail; every paragraph moved the story line - and a clever one it was - to its surprising finale.

A well-written, brilliant first novel; I hope there will be more to follow.

5.0 su 5 stelle What a Read 17 novembre 2012
Di Margaret A. Maiale - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile|Acquisto verificato Amazon
A wonderful adventure----from a little coastal beach town in Delaware where a box of ashes is found to the island of St. Croix where the mystery is solved. The story involved some of just about everything you would want to find in a good book--a love story in which a couple is committed to each other's wants (even when one of them doesn't understand the compelling force behind a decision), a mystery that needs to be solved, frightening island voodoo, and a crime that has gone unsolved for too long. The author has done an excellent job of bringing us into her story with more than just adequate description. I felt like I was on St. Croix with her cast of characters. Thank you for taking me on this journey.
5.0 su 5 stelle Takes you to the islands 26 giugno 2013
Di William Gibbons - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
This is a charming story with an undercurrent of changes that take place in many of the characters' lives and, therefore, within the characters as well. Part mystery, part romance, and part thriller, this is a great novel to get lost in while traveling because it too takes place between the States and the U. S. Virgin Islands. . Having traveled in the Caribbean, where time is something they have plenty of, I readily identified with the illustrative descriptions of the beaches, gardens, and buildings, colonial and newer, of St. Croix and found those scenes relaxing, between scenes of action and engaging dialogue.
