  • 99 CENTS TILL 10/20 As a lover of short stories, I am thrilled with Mary Deal's "Off Center in the Attic"! Not only is she a truly awesome writer, she also has an awesome imagination. Some of her stories are scary, some are funny, one is only two sentences long ... what a brain! Thanks for taking me to places far away, showing me people I'd never meet, and tickling my fancy on every page. I highly recommend this fascinating glimpse into mind-blowing wonder.

    Exquisite, heart pumping, extraordinary torture – brilliant

    Where do I start? I loved this book, and yet it caused me so much heartache and worry. I am a slow reader, but I take all of it in. I live it. 
    I felt the pain and suffering of a mother who endured the anguish of losing her daughter aged 5; abducted by her estranged husband, never to be found. Was she still alive? And then, a death row woman, the same age as her daughter, displays characteristics that suggest she could be the long lost daughter.
    What follows is a roller coaster ride of emotions that involve proving if the woman is her daughter, and then to prove her innocent of the crime. A switchback of narrative twists, hope, despair, misery… so well written. It has taken me some time to recover – I was exhausted after this read.
    I will say no more for fear of spoilers – but – read this book – you will not regret it. I have already bought another of Deal’s books.
