My readers love "Beneath A Blanket Of Snow"
I enjoyed this novel. It is deep, it is heavy, but it has some incredible insight. I sat at my desk and looked at my life. This book will make you think, it will make you angry, it will make you sad, and it will change how you perceive everything you thought you knew—a beautiful debut from an insightful new author. I will definitely be reading Arlene’s next novel.
An engaging drama that follows a prominent family's fall from grace. It's more emotional than your typical crime drama and grittier than most chick lit stories.
A well written story of secrets and the reality beneath the blanket of false security. The writer does a good job of maintaining the level of interest and keeping the reader turning the pages.
I would definitely recommend this book. The characters were written so vividly. I could not put the book down. I loved the book!
Beneath a Blanket of Snow is a very engaging novel with many insightful observations. Both the development of the characters' stories and the unraveling of their secrets was captivating throughout the novel. Impressively, this is the author's first novel, but she has complete control of the narrative and her style throughout!
I cared about the characters and I wanted to know what happened to them. You can't ask for much more than that from a book.
This book was easy to pick up and hard to put down. It's a wonderful read. Highly recommended.
Praise for "If We Had Known"
I was instantly drawn in to the story and attached to the characters from the first few pages. The author weaves an intricate family drama where the family faces an unexpected medical diagnosis and has to work through things--together. It is well-written, and I highly recommend you pick this book up!
Arlene Lomazoff-Marron, the author of Beneath a Blanket of Snow, is on it again with this new drama. I found her work equally if not surpassing her previous work. I would recommend this book to those who love family life fiction.
If We Had Known is an intriguing drama about a family facing an undiscovered diagnosis and the traumatic implications. But it's more than that. Lomazoff-Marron uses that as a jumping off point to look at the lives of a family, skillfully observing it through each individuals point of view. What seems accurate from one person's narrative becomes questioned when the reader hears the other side of the story. This is a lot for a writer to juggle, but Lomazoff-Marron makes it look easy.
Another brilliant story that sucked me in from start to finish, so much thought and talent has gone into this book to make it flow perfectly from start to finish and keep me engaged, I recommend this book. Keep writing.
This book is even tauter than Ms Marron's first book. The characters are etched convincingly. What makes this book stand out is the sub plots do not detract from the main plot. A skillful writer, Ms Marron has done a commendable job in structuring this novel. The...close (of) the book is a masterstroke in my opinion.
I enjoyed how the author weaves the lives of the characters into a tale of love, abandonment, hurt, recovery and joy. This book sucked me in to the lives of its characters and held my attention until the very last page. Thoroughly recommended
