The house looked right, felt right to Dr Louis Creed. A place where his family could settle, and the children could grow up and explore the rolling hills and meadows. Surely a safe place. Not a place to seep into your dreams, to wake you, sweating with fear and foreboding.
I have read this book at least 5 times and it never fails to scare me, with every read I notice something new that had slipped past on the previous reads. By far one of my favourite Stephen King books!
Paige has only a few vivid memories of her mother, who abandoned her when she was five. Now, having left home and her father for dreams of art school and marriage to an ambitious young doctor, Paige finds herself with a child of her own.
Emotionally and physically exhausted, overwhelmed by the demands of her family, Paige cannot forget her mother's absence or the shameful memories from her own past. Her next step would have been unthinkable before her doubts about her maternal ability crept into her mind. Is it possible Paige's baby would be better off without her?
I turned into a bookworm
I used to love reading and then couldn't find a book that I got really in to. The ones you just cant put down! I then decided to buy Harvesting the heart and literally got sucked into it! I couldn't put it down. She has beautifully captured and written every feeling and emotion through any stages of life that a woman would go through and the characters are built up so well through the story that after I had finished it, it was like people I knew had disappeared. I was definitely a bookworm for that week and even set my alarm an hour early so that i could read it before I had to get ready for work! A certain must read!
