Cruisin through books ’cause books make life worth livin’ with Aly #RileyAmosReviews, 4/12/2015 part 2

Dancing on Glass by Susan Taylor Chehak

I was not sure what to think about my first gothic novel. The title of this book has significant meaning in the opening scene, where a wife commits suicide by falling through a skylight. Her death marks one of many tragedies that hurt the Craig and Von Vechten names. Bader Von Vechten’s marriage to Katherine Craig had appeared to bridge the gap between two families, but it’s soon destroyed when Bader has sex with a 15-year-old boy. This book is hard to follow at times, it changes narrative constantly, moves over a 25-year time frame, and has many characters, most of whom aren’t very interesting or likable. Yet the author draws you right into the story, regardless of the book’s flaws. * I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review*  4/5
