A couple of years ago, I read this book and was unimpressed. For some reason, I decided to read this book again. Perhaps the last time I was in a brain-fog -- because this time I was bowled over by the beauty of the story.
TWISTED CREEK is a love story, a mystery and most importantly, a story about creating a life worth living in a community. Sometimes one small incident in our life can add profound meaning to our existence. This is a beautifully told narrative; the story unfurls slowly so we can savor each moment.
Allie Daniels and her grandmother, Nana, have lived on the edge of poverty for a long time. At 26, Allie has all but given up dreaming about a better future. Suddenly, a letter arrives that changes the 2 women?s lives; Allie has inherited some property from an uncle she didn?t know she had.
Living close by Allie?s property (an old country store and bait shop) is Luke Morgan. He?s strange and uncommunicative most of the time. He knew the uncle who left the property to Allie and is sure he was murdered; Luke has taken time off from his job to find out. The most likely suspect is the new owner, Allie.
Slowly, a group of isolated individuals emerges from lodges around the lake to partake in Allie?s first Sunday night restaurant supper. Each person sits at his/her own table. As things start happen around the lake, the individuals start to work together.
Jodi Thomas outdid herself with this lovely story.
