Francey by Martin Dubow


Francey St. Michael is perhaps one of the luckiest girls in the world. Her father, Rick, is a renowned architect and dotes on her, and although she never knew her mother, Francey finds a friend in her 6th grade teacher, Lizzie Gingery, and she’s wonderfully smart and precocious. But then come the nightmares. Francey's nightmares are more than just a figment of her imagination though. They are memories, memories of a past life when she was a young artist whose lover was brutally killed. As the nightmares grow more menacing, Francey, her father, Lizzie, and Lizzie's brother will be drawn together as they search for an end to these night terrors before they claim Francey's life.

Sinister, suspenseful, and artfully written, Francey is one mysterious and engrossing read. Dubow's vivid wording will ensnare readers as he brings them back to the late 17th century and then up to modern times as Francey's story unfolds. The plot is briskly placed, and thrilling. Thanks to Dubow's keen eye for detail, you'll become intimate with each character and their background, making this an eerie novel that will propel you to read late into the night.

Sorry, this is completely unrelated, but...

Have you seen the cover for Rumors? I remember you saying that you were eager to see the cover. (you can see it on Amazon)

I don't think it's as amazing as the cover for The Luxe, but it's still pretty cool.

How ironic you should mention that. I was just looking at it now. It is quite stunning, but I have to agree, I like The Luxe's cover better. We'll have to see how the story unravels...
