Book Review~Soul's Prisoner

This week, the

Soul's Prisoner
(WhiteFire Publishing (December 15, 2015))
Cara Luecht

A Word from the Author:I never planned to be a writer. In fact, it took me a while to finish college. But I did, and here I am. And I now I can’t imagine not being a writer. By day, I am an English Instructor for a local college, mother to four amazing children, and wife to an eternally patient and supportive husband. In the evening, when I can squirrel away some quiet time, I read and write historical fiction. I have a B.A. in English Lit. from UW Whitewater and an M.F.A in Creative Writing from Fairleigh Dickinson University in Madison, NJ. If you have a question for me, or if you are local and would like me to stop by your book club or writer’s group, please drop me a line via the “Ask the Author” tab. I always love the opportunity to meet with others who share my love of books.


She'll fight for her future...but can she escape her past?
Chicago, Winter, 1891
Rachel is in danger. She s seen too much.
She creeps along the cement walls through the dank underbelly of the asylum. She d never planned to leave her quiet farm life, never thought she d find a place in the city, never imagined she d be in the kind of danger that would have her cowering in Dunning s cold, labyrinthine basement.
Jenny has finally found her place. After a childhood of abuse, she has friends, a real job, and her only wish is to give her adopted son the kind of life she never had.
A life of stability, without the risk and uncertainty of a father.
But when Jeremy, Rachel s brother, stumbles into their warehouse, asking for help to find his missing sister, Jenny s carefully constructed life begins to crumble.

What I Thought: I received Soul's Prisoner last Friday, and was concerned if I would be able to read it in time to post my review for this tour.  Well, there was no problem at all because as soon as I opened the book I could not put this book down!

Soul's Prisoner is the second book in Cara Luecht's series Portraits of Grace.  I have not read the first book in the series, Soul Painter, but I definitely will now! Soul's Prisoner is a story with a lot of suspense, a little romance, and a collection of very interesting and unique characters.  At first I had a hard time keeping the characters straight, but got them figured out after the first couple chapters.  I assume had I read the first book in the series, I would not have had any trouble. I highly recommend this book, and look forward to reading other books by Cara Luecht.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed here are my own.
