I have three months to write the last book of my life. Three months to confess the details of that day, and how it changed everything for me.

My name is Helena Ross. I’ve written fifteen romance novels, ten of which have become international bestsellers. But this one isn’t a romance, no Happily Ever After in place. This novel holds only the truth, which I have run away from for four years. The truth, which I have hidden from the police, from my loved ones, from the world.

This final book?

It’s my confession.

 

♦6-STAR REVIEW♦

In what might be (read: is) her most gripping novel yet, Alessandra Torre departs from her normal genre with soulful ease and sinks her teeth into a fleshy, heartbreaking tale of a dying novelist whose last wish is to write her confession in The Ghostwriter. What follows is a harrowing tale of regret, grief, and closure, both ironic and bittersweet. Sweepingly poetic and haunting, it’ll keep you on the edge of your seat as it builds and builds with its stark vividness.

Employing the use of a hardened protagonist, one who is both easy to understand and love (most especially because she admits to things most women/mothers wouldn’t dare to utter but have thought), Torre gives us a complex, unique heroine to root for; one that has an unwavering strength and a staunch eye forward. Her flaws are glaring, widely open to criticism, but there’s an ease with which it is to love this unlovable woman. This character is unabashed in her past and the decisions she’s made up to this point. And yet, as the story evolves and shapes, both in her confessional book and in the story, slowly she finds herself within the words–she finds her humanity, the humanity of others, and the heart she’s long walled off.

The Ghostwriter is a beautiful, soul-moving story that any woman can find pieces of themselves in. The writing was eloquent, its story bold and consuming. Not many books move me to sob-like tears, but this one snuck up on me and ripped me apart. It will leave you bereft of words, floating within its carefully constructed world, and not knowing if you’ll ever come down from its high. This is Torre at her best, her words their most beguiling and enchanting, all so very remarkable in their job to tell you an unstoppable force of a story.

I wasn’t supposed to fall in love with the nanny.

When my wife left, she took the illusion of happiness with her, and I’ve been caught in a free fall ever since. For nine long months, I’ve been fighting to figure out how to be a single dad, how to be alone.

For nine long months, I’ve been failing.

When Hannah walked through the door, I took my first breath since I’d found myself on my own. She slipped into our lives effortlessly, showing me what I’ve been missing all these years. Because Hannah made me smile when I thought I’d packed the notion of happiness away with my wedding album.

She was only supposed to be the nanny, but she’s so much more.

The day my wife left should have been the worst day of my life, but it wasn’t. It was when Hannah walked away, taking my heart with her.

 

♦ABOUT THE AUTHOR♦

StaciHartAuthorPic

Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life — a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that. She’s also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She’s been a wife, though she’s certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She’s also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she’s been drinking whiskey.

From roots in Houston to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.
