Review of Barrie Hill Reunion


Reviewed by Roy Murry, Author

Brodey's instigating protagonist, Leah, captures most of the reunion's conversations with fellow literary students after being apart for twenty years. For some reason, she is at odds with Clare, the organizer.

Six of them meet in a well-known hotel near the campus and where they gathered weekly while attending school. Each had gone on to newsworthy endeavors when they parted: an author, an actor, an editor, a publisher, a playwriter, and Leah.

Where Leah anger comes from, no one knows, except possibly her husband, Colin. She is smart, manipulative, cunning, and at one-time wrote a play with him.

The three-day reunion will keep you, the reader wondering what is going on. Leah is playing everyone trying to reach her goal of undermining Clare’s status. She does not know that she might be the one being played.

Each of the characters has their hidden problems brought up over the course of the weekend and are somewhat resolved by the end. However, the climatic ending will have the reader cheering.

What goes around comes around. Need I say more - NOT HERE.

This is the second book I have read of Lisette's. I am back for more as you should be too, because she writes exciting topics, with intriguing characters.

  1. Thank you so much for this wonderful review, Roy. I'm so glad you enjoyed Barrie Hill Reunion. It was a story that I was inspired to write as a teenager, and decades later, it finally became a novel.

    I truly appreciate your kindness.

    All best wishes,
