INTO THE MIST
With its mist-shrouded village, an
ancient elder and a bridge that spans time, Sinclair's fantasy should seem farfetched, but it doesn't. At first a reader might wonder where this book is going, but all the questions, lost memories, anguish and hope are tied together neatly and explained, and the characters are lovable and special.
Frank has his own demons. A tragic accident, a nightmare surgical schedule and hopelessness send him to a mist-shrouded village. There he finds that life cannot go on until the past is laid to rest. He wants to find that peace with Carrie, who has turned his heart back into a living organ. (Medallion, Feb., 384 pp., $7.95)
