    Wonderful story

    Published by Abby Merritt on Sep 21, 2023

    An amazing story from an author I just started reading! It's such a weird, true story, it's so hard to believe, but it was very well written. Loved the spiritual theme, the little to no romance, and the bunch of suspense. So good! Keeps you in the story well, great dialog, and wonderful set up.

    Based on true evens

    Published by Christena Kaufman on May 27, 2020

    The Green Dress by Liz Tolsma is a novel based on a true story of murders that happened in Somerville MA during the 1880’s. The Robinson family appears to be a normal, Christian family. They attend church regularly and are involved in religious activities. The strange thing is that so many of the family are dying of a disease no one can identify. All have similar symptoms but where are they getting the illness and why does no medicine help? This book is very well written and keeps the reader glued to the pages. I found it difficult to put it down. There are many suspects for perhaps foul play but will there ever be proof? I felt so much sadness as family members, who I felt like I knew, lost their lives to this mysterious illness. I wanted them all to get well as I felt very attached to them due to the excellent writing of this story. The subject matter must have been difficult for the author to write about and I believe she certainly did it justice.
