Kristen Illarmo – 5 stars
Ever Rest unfolds unexpectedly. It is a subtle story, full of emotion. The characters are full and feel like they could show up in your kitchen to make a cup of tea. These characters held my imagination for weeks afterward. It was their grip on me that was unexpected.
This is not a fast-paced action thriller, but it is completely engrossing. This is a book that explores loss and what happens to the ones who are left behind, what happens when your dreams don’t pan out, and what happens when they do. This is well thought out, careful, and expertly crafted book.
