SLEEPING IN EDEN
Genre: Inspirational, Mainstream
Baart’s eloquent prose draws the reader into the tragic tale. At times a love story, other times a mystery, this is overall a very purposeful piece of fiction.
In a small Iowa town, Dr. Lucas Hudson is called to a farm to confirm a suicide. He recognizes the alcoholic father of a young woman he and his estranged wife befriended before she disappeared. When bones are discovered buried underneath the corpse, Lucas thinks it must be those of the daughter, Angela. In a parallel storyline, high school student Meg meets newcomer Dylan. Their relationship is filled with ups and downs, with Meg eventually pairing off with a mutual friend. The two stories intersect in a powerful way. (HOWARD, May, 368 pp., $16.00)
