“She drifted in an endless black slumber marred only by white hot flashes of pain. She tried to rouse herself from her terrible nightmare. When she finally regained consciousness, terror flooded her with the realization that she was still entombed in darkness and pain, and her nightmare was only beginning.” Kelly Malloy is a wife, a mother and a successful lawyer whose world is shattered when she is brutally attacked while running along the banks of the Brandywine River. Chad McCloskey, a lonely teenage boy from a dysfunctional home, stumbles upon Kelly Malloy’s unconscious body immediately after the assault, and he is falsely accused of the crime after he tries to help her. Maria Hernandez, a young woman who emigrated illegally from Mexico, is reluctantly thrust into the role of witness to the crime, putting her in jeopardy of deportation only weeks before she is to give birth to her child. Kelly, Chad and Maria all suffer tremendous adversity in the wake of the crime, and they ultimately discover that their lives and their fate are inextricably and permanently connected. Long Hill Home is a story of crime, mystery and the legal process—but it is also a story about the human condition, and how, regardless of vast differences in background or circumstances, all people strive for the same things—security, a fulfilling life, and, most importantly, love.

Kathryn PincusAbout the Author

Kathryn Pincus was raised in the New York metropolitan area, received her undergraduate degree, B. A., Magna Cum Laude, from the University of Delaware, and her law degree, J. D., from the Georgetown University Law Center. Kate honed her writing skills in her law practice, presenting complex factual and legal matters in clear, compelling and persuasive writings. Since her “early retirement” from the practice of law, she has filled her days taking care of a busy household and family, supporting numerous charitable and community causes and writing fiction. “Long Hill Home” is her debut novel, and another novel and a collection of short stories are in the works. When not engaged in all of the above, Kate enjoys running, biking, traveling, reading, cooking, and watching her sons compete in sports. (Kathryn Pincus)
 I found the book to be rather sad but interesting at the same time.   You had to feel bad for Kelly as well as Chad.  Kelly had been attacked and working hard to get back to normal so her husband and kids wouldn't leave. her.  Chad was very young to have to decide if he should  try to help Kelly or just forget it. Being arrested for such an awful crime and dealing with life in jail wasn't much to look forward to.  His dad was hard to deal with too.  The author wrote a story that was actually fiction but as you read it, it seems real.  It could and does happen. I won't give you the ending. I'll let you figure that out for yourself.  Written well and good plot.

I received a complimentary copy of LONG HILL HOME from the author, Kathryn Pincus and Night Owl Reviews for my view of the book.

I would give this book 4 STARS.
