Review & Giveaway: Jane Was Here by Sarah Kernochan

Jane Was Here by Sarah Kernochan

Book Description: A thriller that explores reincarnation, Jane Was Here follows a mysterious young woman, who calls herself Jane, who turns up in a small New England town. She claims a fragmentary memory of growing up in the town, yet she has never been there before in her life. Upon her arrival, strange and alarming things begin happening to some of the town's inhabitants. As Jane's memories reawaken piece by piece, they carry her back to a long-buried secret, while the townspeople hurtle forward to a horrific event when past and present fatally collide. A centuries-old mystery will resolve, and karma will claim its due.

About the Author: Sarah Kernochan has won two Academy Awards for her documentaries Marjoe and Thoth. As a screenwriter, she has written many films, among them Nine and a Half Weeks, Impromptu, Sommersby, and What Lies Beneath. She also directed her film All I Wanna Do, starring Kirsten Dunst. Jane Was Here is her second novel. She lives in New York City with her husband, director James Lapine.


Here's What I Think: This book is another slow starter but really grabs your curiousity by about page 80. I am struggling a little with my review of this book because I don't like to give the plot away in any book and I can't really talk about it without doing just that. This story is a real mystery and very thrilling. I spent a lot of time thinking "Wait...what?" just as I thought I had it all figured out, I was proven wrong. It is a great story, written sort of in the style of a movie -probably because the author is also a screenwriter.
