The Mill River Recluse by Darcie Chan was a spur of the moment cheap purchase and I will admit that I didn’t expect the great story and wonderful characters. It just goes to show you that a good book does not have to cost a lot of money. This story is of the life of a woman that is dealing with severe social anxiety disorder. The opulence and profundity of all of the characters was brilliant. You were drawn into all their lives and I felt that I knew each and every one of the townspeople as the book went on.
