Publisher's Summary

Two sisters raised in fear are about to find out why in a chilling novel of psychological suspense from the author of The Thinnest Air.

Ignorant of civilization and cautioned against its evils, nineteen-year-old Wren and her two sisters, Sage and Evie, were raised in off-the-grid isolation in a primitive cabin in upstate New York. When the youngest grows gravely ill, their mother leaves with the child to get help from a nearby town. And they never return.

As months pass, hope vanishes. Supplies are low. Livestock are dying. A brutal winter is bearing down. Then comes the stranger. He claims to be looking for the girls’ mother, and he’s not leaving without them.

To escape, Wren and her sister must break the rule they’ve grown up with: never go beyond the forest.

Past the thicket of dread, they come upon a house on the other side of the pines. This is where Wren and Sage must confront something more chilling than the unknowable. They’ll discover what’s been hidden from them, what they’re running from, and the secrets that have left them in the dark their entire lives.

Sadly....

I just couldn't get into this book. I loved the thinnest air & was very excited for this book. But, no it was a real snooze.

Still waiting......

Still waiting for Minka Kent to write another "5-star" book. Unfortunately, THE STILLWATER GIRLS did not even come close to earning "5 stars" from me.

The plot was very, very contrived and lacked credibility:
1) The way the author had the two families meeting was not very believable.
2) The husband's secret was preposterous and was also not very believable.

My very, very favorite Minka Kent book was THE THINNEST AIR. Minka Kent's books have gotten better with each new release but this book was an exception.

Did I enjoy this?

This book was good but the conclusion was a little too coincidental.
The husband's big secret was just crazy. Who keeps something like that a secret?

Loved it!

A different kind of story very enjoyable. Keeps up at a good pace. The narrator was excellent. If you enjoy mysteries check this one out. @

All the Stars

This book was sooooo good! It had everything I love ... mystery, family drama, likable characters, fast moving, & surprises. The narration was excellent. My only complaint ... it had to end.

Unrealistic

The suspense was good, the ending somewhat suprising, but the "twist" was far from believable.

Good Read

I liked the story, bit could have done more with the ending. It wrapped up too quickly.

Great story!

Minka Kent’s psychological thrillers are always some of my favorite books to read. Now this wasn’t my absolute favorites of Miss Kent’s stories but she still created an incredibly fascinating story that I was quickly pulled into. I found myself trying to figure out how the two separate storylines were connected. Kent developed a fantastic storyline and wove her way creating mystery and intrigue.

I’m not going to go into the storyline. Really, Kent created a deep mystery and I don’t want to accidentally spill the beans. Kent’s writing is descriptive and detailed. She is able to maintain two separate storylines while slowly starting to weave them together. Normally Minka Kent is a 5-Star for me and I really debated with this one. But there were some things that didn’t really work for me. I removed one-star just for this, the things that didn’t sit right or didn’t work. For the most part, this story is seriously a great book!

I was eager to listen to this

I was eager to listen to this whenI heard she had another book coming out. I absolutely loved each of her previous books. This book started out different than her others. It started out a bit slow and wasn’t as exciting. I also thought the amnesia storyline could have been played out differently. I Honestly don’t even think it was necessary. It pretty much ruined the book for me because it was so far-fetched. If you are a Minka Kent fan like I am and do you get this book just be prepared that it is not quite up to par with the rest of her books. I’ll be looking forward to her next book hopefully it will follow in the footsteps of the other books she has written and not this one.
