The Watcher
By Sara Davison
This novel was extremely unique and may have been one that I would not have chosen to read, had I not been asked to review it. HOWEVER, am I glad I did read it!! It was a definite mysterious page turner and I had a difficult time putting it down, once I got involved in this complicated plot.
There is a character/ spirit in the background in this whole novel- sometimes I thought it evil, sometimes heavenly- kept changing my mind. Sara has the unique ability to have this creature speak / give opinions at points of mystery and intrigue.
The main character, Kathryn knows the moment she sees Nick that there is something between them. However, he is too close to something very evil that happened in her past, changing her life forever and she feels she must not get involved with him- however, twenty years later, when he appears at her door, she realizes that perhaps she should move on with her life.
Over the next few days,  Kathryn goes throught he contents of an old shoebox, reliving and letting go of memories which have kept her, along with her daughter , Lexi, captive for far too long.
Another character, who is important to this story is David, who has also kept a secret for years and painfully feels he must confess to his wife and others. His fragile peace is interrupted as he recalls the events of THE NIGHT. He may lose everything he has fought for if he confesses his part.
A fourth character, that all have struggled with is Kevin, who has been in prison for twenty years for a dreadful act- but the disaster occurs- he escapes, while on death row!!He wants to come back and start what he finished those many years ago.
Throughout all of this, there is someone or something watching  the approaching danger!
This is a definite thriller, which all mystery lovers should read. All I can say is WOW- I never knew what would be around the corner!! Great book, Sara!
