Arrowood: A Novel by Laura McHugh

A dark, gripping novel from the author of The Weight of Bloodabout a mysterious kidnapping and the ways in which our lives are shaped by the stories we create about our past

Arrowood is the most ornate and beautiful of the grand historical houses that line the Mississippi River in southern Iowa, where the days are long and humid and communities are small and closed. It has its own secrets and ghostly presence: It’s where Arden’s young twin sisters were abducted nearly twenty years ago—never to be seen again. Now, Arden has inherited Arrowood, and she returns to her childhood home determined to establish what really happened that traumatic summer. But the house and the surrounding town hold their secrets close—and the truth, when Arden finds it, is more devastating than she ever could have imagined.

One thought on “Arrowood: A Novel by Laura McHugh

  1. The outline of the book peaked my interests by saying a dark, gripping novel…to me it wasn’t dark or gripping until the last 25 pages where the book really took off…

    I found parts of the book very tedious and descriptive…I’m sorry to the author. I gave it three stars because of the Underground Railroad mentions…

    In my honest opinion the book could have had more potential with the family secrets…

    I don’t review parts of the book so others can find out what is going on I feel everyone should make their own opinions of the book….

    Please don’t go by the good and bad reviews…if the book is of interest please read it and form your own opinion. But I myself wouldn’t recommend it to my friends saying it was good…
