My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I’m an avid reader and fan of Nora Roberts. She is, as far as I’m concerned, the Queen of Romance, although there are those who argue that what she writes isn’t strictly “Romance.” If it isn’t, then three cheers for her. She has managed to put out several books a year under at least two pen names, most of which are good reads. This one, Sanctuary, is one of her best.
In it she follows the torturous lives of the Hathaway family as they try to run a small inn on an outer-banks Island off the coast of Georgia. Our heroine, Jo, a successful photographer on the mainland is drawn back home by a series of photos sent to her anonymously. Photos of her mother, Annabelle, who disappeared from their home on the island years ago, leaving the family shattered.
This is a family mystery, but more than that, it’s a family saga. The plot is complex and compelling and the characters and setting are brilliantly drawn.
