Fallon McKniere is a person you probably wouldn't favor with a second glance if you saw her on the street. She's not only petite in stature, she's toothpick-thin, and her clothes say "thrift shop". Her stance says "Don't mess with me." But if you take a closer look, you'll see a haunted expression in her eyes.
Donovan Pfarr takes a closer look. And can't turn away when he realizes that she goes hungry most of the time. He feels compelled to help her.
But he wonders: How did Fallon end up living in a run-down trailer taking care of her mentally-unbalanced mother, barely eking out an existence on her meager paycheck from the convenience store where she works?
The answer comes when a man involved in an event from Fallon's childhood learns he is dying. He tries to make peace with his conscience by setting up an anonymous trust fund for Fallon. And unleashes a force that places Fallon and Donovan in deadly peril.
This story kept me eager to see what was going to happen next. The narration on the other hand, was not consistent with rhythm and tone. It would be beneficial to the author's story if narration could be redone, preferably dramatized.
What disappointed you about On Berryhill Road?
The storyline held the promise of being interesting, the delivery was awful. The reader brought nothing to the table. The performance was boring, unemotional. There was no real connection between the reader and the story, the result being that I felt nothing . I couldn't. finish it.
What was most disappointing about Tommie Lyn’s story?
Interesting premise, ruined by presentation. I think might be one of the times that book would better read rather than listened to.
Would you be willing to try another one of George Kuch’s performances?
No. Slow, unemotional, characters came off weak and despite the storyline uninteresting.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
