CAPTAIN FIN BY AMANDA M THRASHER - BRILLIANTLY WRITTEN STORY OF LOVE, LOSS, LIES AND THE DAMAGE THAT CAN BE REPAIRED.
I have been a fan of Amanda Thrasher’s books since I read her first Mischief in the Mushroom Patch book over nine years ago. I’ve read nearly every book she’s written and loved them all on different levels. They are brilliantly told stories, that all teach you something as she takes you deeply into the soul of the story.
I just finished her latest Captain Fin, written from a screen play by Kevin James O’Neil. It is absolutely one of the best books that I have read in a very long time. I read most anything that is put before me, yes even YA books, for in them there is truth that even a grown woman like me can learn from, while enjoying the story.
In Captain Fin, Ms. Thrasher has outdone herself. Each character comes so vividly to life as to make you feel as if you are sitting in the room with them.
The pain of the broken family, loss of a father due to circumstances that I will not play the spoiler to tell you. Suffice to say that there are many that are dishonest, and the justice system does not always get things right.
I learned early that little lies, turn into big lies, but Captain Fin reminded me how it can affect so many even when it is done for the best of motives.
Kudos to Ms. Thrasher for a story so well told that it had this reader unable to put it down. Brilliant, Masterful, Delightful, Truthful, and vividly told.
