Reviewed by Brenda Ballard for Readers’ Favorite
Five women, each with their own tribulation, walk through life with their dreams that mean everything to them. The Visitor comes to make changes, to provide each a gem that, if things go well, will be the pivotal point that they yearn for.
The plot twists and the enticement of what the next page may unfold will leave the reader with chores still to be done and dinner uncooked. It is that impossible to put the book down! I loved the uniqueness of the plot; I have never read a story like this before. The author is very skilled at pulling the reader in and does not disappoint. She is a descriptive writer who manages to make the lucky reader feel as though they are right there in the story. Being the mom of four, it is clear that Karen Mc Dermott surely has a lot of opportunities to utilize her fantastic imagination but she doesn’t stop at the family: she shares her gift with the world. I went back and re-read a couple of parts just because I enjoyed them so much. I cannot say that I do that often (if at all) normally. The author’s name is one that I will look for now and then, just to see what else she has written. While I am really not the groupie type, I will definitely follow this woman’s work! I highly recommend “The Visitor” to readers who enjoy this genre. It is that great!
