I loved Evelyne Sants way of story telling. She drew me in. I thought that the translation was very well done, I was shocked it was originally written in another language.
The characterization was on point and one of my favorite things about this novel. I loved how invested I felt in Marion's life and past. I felt like I was with her every step of the way.
The twists and turns were unique and unexpected. Making this suspense novel really live up to its Genre.
Thus, “Dark Secrets of the Past” was born, a book which made me tremble many times while writing.
Carried away by this momentum, I could not return to my poems. This experience gave me the certainty that what I truly want to do is write passionate stories in order to share them with readers.
I hope this book carries and transports you as far as it did me while I was writing it.
