Review: Hallowed Halls by Hannah Alexander


Hallowed Halls by the husband/wife team, Hannah Alexander, is a very interesting book that looks into relationships.  Not only that, but it has a very intriguing medical mystery as well.  I was drawn into this story and all the dynamics that it involved.  The main character Dr. Joy Gilbert is still broken hearted from her break up with her fiancé Zack, who is a fellow doctor.  With problems at home with her mom, Molly, Joy takes a job in the city much farther away than the country home she is used too.  It has been 9 months, and things are still not working out for Joy.  Being pursued by her divorced employer and her overloaded work schedule, Joy needs to go home and face her Mother’s mounting debt and health problems and Zack.  Not only that, but she has a stowaway, Tressa, who is the very wealthy and powerful divorced employer’s daughter.  Tressa is dealing with some issues of her own, from both her parents.  Not only that, but there is something more sinister and dangerous happening to Tressa. This story is full of secrets that each individual is keeping and needs to come to light.  I really liked how the author showed that the decisions and mistakes people make, not only affect the person making them, but everyone as a whole.  I also enjoyed how all the characters related and responded to each other, especially Joy and Molly’s relationship.  There is definitely some healing and forgiveness that needs to take place for all the characters. This is my first read by Hannah Alexander and with the solid storytelling found in this book it will not be my last.  I received this book from The Book Club Network, (TBCN) and the opinions are my own.
