Girl From The Tree House by Gudrun Frerichs is an extra ordinary thriller. I believe the author being a psychotherapist herself wrote this story in a great detail especially in the perspective of a person who is suffering from Dissociative Identity Disaster. I can’t imagine how much of a shock it is for anyone who realized how false her whole thirty years of life was.
I loved every single personality of Elizabeth. The multiple personalities inside Elizabeth call themselves ‘The Tribe’ and they each come to the rescue of Elizabeth on various occasions. Elizabeth’s fight for her sanity and freedom is incredible.
Girl From The Tree House is the most complex story I read in the recent times but don’t let the complex get you. I’m sure every single reader can relate themselves to at least one or two of the multiple personalities of Elizabeth. A well written and extremely insightful book. Definitely one of the best psychological thriller released this year.

Laguna by A’gata Green is a little different from regular psychological thrillers. I would say, it is more passionate thriller. Anastasia falls head over heels for Alejandro. There is love, passion and craze in their relationship, but there is a lack of commitment from Alejandro. Anastasia waits almost all her life for this but Alejandro keeps coming and going. Talking about the title of the book, Laguna is particularly a ssexual technique that very few men know. There are some scenes in the book the explain this technique in detail but I personally refuse to call this book erotic just because of this title. This book is so much more than erotic. The pain that the female goes through is well described by the author, the wait and the hopelessness made my heart clench.
Laguna is about a woman’s love, heartbreak and mending it.

Landour is one of the most beautiful towns I’ve ever visited. It sit on top of a hill in Uttarakhand.

A Change of Time by Ida Jessen is an engaging book. I received a free copy for an honest review from Edelweiss+. This book, I must say, is very unique. The story is set up in 20th century in Denmark. The story unravels itself through the pages of a diary. A woman who just lost her husband struggles to establish her identity as an individual. The sudden freedom in the protagonist’s life is too overwhelming for her and she finds a way to find solitude in her loneliness.
The book feels like a poetry. The author beautifully narrated the pain of the protagonist. There are small poems sprinkled here and there in the book which are very beautiful and reminds the reader of old classics. The story is very well written and I’m guessing the translation from Danish is just.
GONE by Jeannie van Rompaey is a very unique book, one of its kind. The books is initially established in UK where a small family of four lives happily. Sarah and Alec raise their twins Kate and Ben in a very healthy environment. When another pair of twins visit them from USA to live with them for the holidays, the entire story turns into a nightmare for Sarah and Alec. Kate and Ben develop a strong bond with the American twins and eventually they leave to US on a so-called holiday but never come back.
Alec leaves to US in search of the twins and discovers a variety of truths about religious groups, cults and other strange groups. Sarah, on the other hand, realizes that she is never going to see the twins again in her life, drowns herself in art, painting and eventually gets herself busy in exhibitions. Alec finds a homeless young man of Ben’s age in US and brings him home and fosters him. Alec’s presence in UK with Sarah gradually decreases and he starts spending more time in US since Alec finds relief in taking care of the youngman.
Sarah falls in love with a widower Oumar. Sarah finds peace in bonding with Oumar’s fourteen-year-old daughter. Sarah decides to ask for a divorce from Alec but finds a conflict in her heart when she learns about Alec’s little secret, his foster son.
The story is very gripping with a lot of pain, grief, hope and love. If you ever loved someone and lost them, you must read this book. I liked how the author shown the characters of the story dealing with grief in different ways. Very engaging book and beautifully written.
