The Move

To look out upon a star-filled sky

From an old window

Drafty and dull.

Never to walk upon floors

So worn with life.

Walls that wrapped around

Tears, laughter and …sighs.

Exchanged for walls

New, empty, echoing.

Floors that have not known

Any comforting existence.

We move on

By choice or by foul

Touch the door knob

Look back, once more

The marks of a leftover life.


Review: Never Knowing by Chevy Stevens

If you have ever wondered about anything in your past, this book may make you think twice about wanting to find the answers. Stevens takes readers on a thrilling and complex journey into the past of Sara Gallagher as she searches for her birth parents.  Sara will learn that sometimes the past is better left in the past.

Told through therapy sessions, the story of Sara takes a bizarre twist when she discovers the devastating truth of her birth.  Her mother was the only victim ever to escape a killer who has been hunting women every summer for decades.  Suddenly danger surrounds Sara and her family as her father comes hunting for her.

Steven’s novel will keep you on the edge of your seat and just when you think it is safe, will hit you again with the unexpected.  The story is a tense and sometimes disturbing read.  Although I tend to shy from books that tell the story through therapy sessions, I found Stevens’ book to be an exception and enjoyed being thrilled by Steven’s writing that drips the feeling of fear straight from the prose.  Good book!
