Charlie’s Pond by C.L. Heckman

This is Samantha’s story. It is moving, gripping and horrifying. What do you do when you grow up in a dysfunctional family and don’t know anything different? C.L. Heckman has brought Sam alive and whether you had a family that was like hers or not, you relate to her pain, because somewhere, at some point in your life, you have felt some of the pain. The agonizing part is that underneath all the anger and pain, she still loves her family and just wants to be loved back. She wants that moment by Charlie’s Pond again.

Right through the book, every time she sees the good in Charlie, you hope that this is it. This is when Charlie changes, and this is when it all gets better. The character of Sam and her feelings have been written with such insight that you feel her. You want to reach out and hug her and give her the strength to say Stop! And walk away. An amazing book, Chris and an incredible experience! I thank you!
