The Lady in the Woods
A Contemporary Gothic Novel
work, family and friends. Will Mariah find her way? She will need to do a lot of thinking from a different plane. Maria wrote ‘The Lady in the Woods’ as a suspense novel, but it is also a tear-jerker at various moments in the story. My favorite scenes were the cabin scenes where I could actually visualize the rooms at the beginning with Mariah and at the end with Andrew for I even liked the repetition of the scenes with Gideon and the scenes at the gas station for the reader can get a feeling that Gideon is a ‘guardian angel’. Most definitely a novel for many relationships dealing with couples; parents and children and pets and how all can help. This would make a great novel for maybe a grief counselor to use in various sessions individually and/or groups. Maria Bluni is one to make you think what is really important to you and living life to the fullestThis is the story of love from many viewpoints. Marie Bluni has written a suspense novel that resembles a love story along with friends and family. This is the story of Mariah Talbot and her finding her way in love and friendship in
