Kurzbeschreibung

Thirteen years ago, Holly’s nine-year-old sister, Rachel, disappeared without a trace. Thirteen years ago, Holly left her hometown. Thirteen years ago, Holly’s first love and high school boyfriend, Houston, was the only suspect. Now, another girl has disappeared. Holly is back, and so is Houston—never charged and still proclaiming his innocence. Can she trust him? Should she trust him?
When out-of-work banking executive Holly McCann moves to the rural mountain town of White Cove, Virginia to care for her dying mother, the past collides with the present. A violent crime against her nine-year-old neighbor evokes memories of the eerily similar disappearance of her sister thirteen years earlier. Holly is thrilled by the arrival of her estranged brother, Oliver, but concerned by his mysterious behavior. She is befriended by the new minister, Jonah, an outsider haunted by his own painful past, but it is Houston Phelps, the only person arrested for the disappearance of her sister, who forces Holly to confront the past and start living in the present.
“Don’t miss this compelling story of love, loss, and redemption! A real winner!” –Haywood Smith, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of THE RED HAT CLUB, LADIES OF THE LAKE, and WAKING UP IN DIXIE.

Hab den Klappentext gar nicht gelesen, wusste also gar nicht um was es geht. Die Geschichte ist unglaublich gut geschrieben und ich konnte den Schmerz mitfühlen, musste auch die eine oder andere Träne wegwischen... Sehr schön!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Vivid Descriptions, Elegant Writing, and a Great Mystery! 16. April 2014
Von Georgia Girl - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
As I was reading this book two words kept coming to mind—vivid and elegant. Laura Templeton has a true gift for setting, characters, and imagery, giving her use of language an elegance that made me savor each page. It’s a great mystery, too. On the surface, it’s about Holly McCann returning to her hometown to care for her dying mother. The family drifted apart after Holly’s nine year old sister, Rachael, disappeared 13 years earlier. Soon after her arrival, a neighbor’s child goes missing which propels Holly into a quest to solve the mystery of her sister’s disappearance. But this book is so much deeper—it’s also the portrayal of a family splintered by tragedy, the longing of lost love, the pain of breached trust, the toll that unresolved sadness, guilt, and anger take, and the hope of redemption. Laura Templeton skillfully taps into the motivations and emotions of the characters to convey how each bears the hurt of Rachael’s disappearance in a different way. The characters have depth and, despite their flaws, they are sympathetic and engaging. I didn’t want this book to end and look forward to reading more Laura Templeton novels.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An engaging, thoughtful debut. 16. Oktober 2013
Von Stephanie Hao - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Well, color me impressed.

I had the pleasure of reading "Something Yellow" not too long ago, and was very glad I did. At first glance, I wasn't sure that it'd be something I'd be interested in, as it's not my typical reading material, but the novel turned out to be one of those rare page-turners that kept me reading during every spare moment until I reached the end, a day or two later. Ms. Templeton's writing style is reminiscent of such authors as Donna Tartt and Barbara Kingsolver—she possesses a facility with imagery and words that lends authenticity to her characters and plot without making them obvious or trite, which happens all too often with such a specific semi-fictional location. Ms. Templeton has done her research well, though, and she depicts a rural Appalachian town without resorting to stereotype or caricature, instead painting a very real portrait of a woman, her small hometown, and the various personalities who inhabit it.

While its plot is fairly straightforward, "Something Yellow" is a bit difficult to categorize, as it falls into many different genres, including magical realism, women's fiction, mystery, and even Southern gothic before the novel's close. But for me, the characters are what drive the story forward. Holly is a very imperfect heroine—she is stubborn, obstinate, and prone to jumping to conclusions. These are flaws that make her human, though, and more sympathetic as she navigates her way through the tangle of family secrets and shame that lurk in her past. I was completely drawn into her search for answers to the mystery of her sister Rachel's disappearance, and what her ex-boyfriend Houston might have had to do with it. Even more intriguing were the links to the current missing child, and how the weight of Holly's (and her brother Oliver's) past affects the storyline as it builds to a heart-stopping climax and conclusion.

I like to have answers to the majority of the questions raised in a mystery, and Ms. Templeton does an excellent job of fulfilling that wish here as she explores questions of truth, family, chance, and home, along with writing a thoroughly engaging, quality novel. I'd recommend this book to anyone, but especially those in the market for a well-written read with a great plot, excellent characters, and a satisfying denouement. Read it. You'll be glad you did.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Beautiful Writing, Realistic Plot 12. November 2013
Von Sharon Schilling - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
To be entirely honest, I opened this book and expected to hate it. The plot sounded intriguing and the cover was pretty, but the pages were so dense. The margins and the words were both teeny tiny, and the first paragraph seemed to set the stage for the rest of the book: difficult to read. Once I read further, though, I became accustomed to the writing style and completely fell in love with it. The story was full of realistic ups and downs of an average person’s life. I enjoyed every second of it, and now I wish the book was even longer!

The first thing that shocked me was the word choice. All the sentences knitted together created an eloquent book filled to the brim with figurative language and vivid images. I’m a girl who loves words. I have a list of favorite words. It’s one of the reasons I love writing so much: I can use large words and intricate sentences. If I walked through school using the same language I do in text, I guarantee I’d get some confused glances coming my way. Laura Templeton created a novel which never ceased to amaze me in her writing. All throughout the book, I literally highlighted the words and phrases I enjoyed. And trust me, not only the cover is yellow anymore. Page upon page is filled with my neon highlighter marks because of all the beautiful language. She really made the magnificence of the mountains and the emotions of the characters come alive.

The book is about one women’s experiences when she comes home to her Virginia mountain home to help her mother’s death through her cancer. Holly, the main character, had a sister who mysteriously disappeared 13 years back, and her family was never the same again. Her father died with a heavy heart a few years earlier, and her brother distanced himself completely from their family. Her mother didn’t just lose one child that day, she lost all three. Holly and Oliver both detached themselves from their roots and scurried off to make their own lives, never completely happy. During the book, Holly juggles caring for her mother and facing the secrets of her past, finally figuring out what really happened when her sister disappeared– and much, much more.

The characters are what really make the book. The writing style creates a strong bond with Holly and all the hardships she goes through. You see her confusion to trust others, her guilt gnawing at her heart, and the happiness she feels being home again. Some authors seem to throw obstacles at their characters while the readers sit back and watch the characters jump through impossible hoops with no connection at all. In Something Yellow, Templeton creates real problems with real solutions and real reactions. She doesn’t just toss problems into the book and mix it up; she illustrates a situation that could very readily happen. Doing this all while keeping the book unique is truly a large feat to overcome.

If you ever want to broaden your vocabulary, I definitely recommend picking up this book. Not only does she use fun words and elaborate images, she writes a book that’s easy to understand and exciting to follow. The plot molds an original situation with powerful characters to make a read that will be hard to put down.

Warning: Expect to be entirely submersed in the story!!!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Haunting Story 29. März 2014
Von Lisa - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

I enjoyed reading this book- I'm from the mountains of Southwest Virginia and it was a refreshing change not to have my people depicted as lazy, uneducated, toothless in-breeders. The characters were well-rounded, successful, and intelligent. The story was part mystery, part supernatural, with a little romance thrown in. All those elements made for a haunting tale.

Von Joseph Blackwell - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

I truly enjoyed reading this book. As I was reading I found myself lost inside of Holly's life imagining that I was right along side her as she learns more about her families past, present and future.
