    Good read and well written. A couple of twists that were not expected.

    Historical Romance/Mystery

    The Last Suppers by Mandy Mikulencak Dark, twisted, emotionally challenging this is a story of people caught up in life…and death. The setting of this story is Greenmount Penitentiary in Louisiana – a fictitious place brought to life through the excellent writing of the author. The period of time ranges from the late 1920’s through the early 1960’s. The issues/topics included are many and each one seems to impact another much as dominoes falling one after another. Family, abuse, lies, KKK, race, friendship, love, belonging, death, trauma, psychological issues, giving, caring, pain…and so much more. The main characters are Roscoe Simms – warden and Ginny Polk – penitentiary head cook. Peripheral/supporting characters include: Dot (cook’s assistant), Miriam (Ginny’s mother), Joe (Ginny’s father) various guards at the penitentiary and the prisoners being executed and the families of those prisoners. The blurb for this book gives an idea of what the book might be about but the story is so much more than the blurb. The gradual unfolding of the backstories makes each character bigger and more complex than first expected with each page read and left me pondering and wishing that for most things could have been radically different while also explaining why the story needed to progress as it did. I am still pondering and thinking and wishing that the characters had things easier BUT I am also thankful to have met and become acquainted with each one of them as they will remain with me for quite some time. This is a book that will not disappear from my mind quickly. It will stick and in sticking do what I like a book to do…make me care and share and think and grow. Thank you to NetGalley and Kensington Books-A John Scognamiglio Book for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars
