Book: The Abduction of Mary Rose by Joan Hall Hovey
|5 stars based on the 3 most helpful Amazon reviews|
Joan Hall Hoveyabout this book: I actually like to write about women who are stronger than they think they are. My female characters are often insecure with low self-esteem. But throughout the book they are forced to go deep inside themselves to draw on strength they didn't know they had, in order to survive, both literally and figuratively.
The Abduction of Mary Rose is in part a search for Naomi's (main character) roots. After the death of the woman she assumed to be her real mother, she learns she was adopted. As she goes deeper into her quest, it becomes clear the finding the answers could cost her her life.
Women are the primary readers of my novels, but I've also gotten some lovely reviews from men. The talented Gary Val Tenuta designed my cover, and it was exactly as I'd imagined it could be.
As for research, I generally do that on a need-to-know basis. In the case of The Abduction of Mary Rose I needed to learn more about the MicMac culture, even down to some of the language. Because I`ve always been interested in the MicMac, particularly those native to New Brunswick, Canada, where I live, it was pleasant work.
