My review:
Permanence was the first book written by Vincent Zandri which I read. I enjoyed this novel tremendously. It was well-written, dark, emotional and sad.
The story is written through the point of view of Mary. Mary is a woman who lost her toddler and the reader will see into Mary's tragic situation. the loss of her child has broken Mary inside out and while reading you feel her pain and heartache. Mary fells in love with her psychiatrist, and that relationship is getting obsessive with every page you turn. It feels like Mary is grabbing to the last straw even though it's not. Mary's object of love is not an easy man and he has dark secrets to hide.
I loved Mary even though I did not understand a lot of things about her. I could understand her pain, but there were lot of things which made me question her decisions. She is believable though and Vincent Zandri did an excellent job with telling Mary's story.
It's a very interesting mystery to read and as mentioned I truly enjoyed Vincent Zandri's writing!
5 Flowers!
4 stars.
