Hawthorne - Sarah Ballance Review will be featured on From the TBR Pile on 2/8/2012.

Hawthorne is a really quick read, but there is a lot packed into it. It's chilling story about lost loves and uncovering deep dark secrets. I don't really want to discuss the plot too much because that would really ruin it for you. Suffice it to say that I was very surprised at the ending and never saw it coming. This is a must read that you don't want to miss. Normally, I think that novellas should be longer. I always want to read more about the characters. In this case, I think it was just the perfect length. I definitely recommend this one and look forward to reading more by Ms. Ballance in the future.
