The BookViral Review:

Emotionally complex Secrets of Edenfield is a story that keeps us on edge from beginning to end whilst demonstrating what an author can accomplish with a compact cast of characters and a powerful theme.

Loni Hoots is an author who has a feel for the shock rhythms of a story whilst chipping away at reality piece by piece as fear and tension mount. She wants to evoke a sense of empathy and shock for the victims of Edenfield and she certainly achieves it.

On this level Secrets of Edenfield is original with plenty of vivid and gut-wrenching moments but it also works as a portrait of individuals living in a mental asylum. Relentlessly pulling us in as their stories are told without drifting into trite genre clichés.

Here Secrets of Edenfield manages to be both engaging and poignant with Hoots getting the juxtaposition between the big-picture “horrors of murder and abuse” stuff and the personal, small-scale stuff just right. Her characters are particularly vibrant and it is this that makes the tragedy of unfolding events so powerful.

Hoots isn’t out to entertain with salacious genre thrills but something deeper and more profound. There are no answers here, and no saccharine ending but readers will find themselves looking deeper into Secrets of Edenfield whilst reflecting on the heartbreak of events that sadly happen over and over again in real life and it’s a credit to Hoots that through her writing she has brought them once again into focus.

A read that will linger in your memory long after the last page is turned Secrets of Edenfield is strongly recommended.

Authors writing about prejudice and racism in literature

Whilst the issues of prejudice and discrimination are multi-faceted and complicated beyond belief, a key moment for me was the day I picked up ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’. Harper Lee implicitly drilled down the relative unfairness of human existence into my 12-year-old brain, creating a sense of outrage that has stayed with me throughout my life.

Dealing With Rejection For Authors

As writers, we knowingly place ourselves in a position where we will undoubtedly face more rejection than the average person and it seems to me that how we handle that part of the creative process is often key to our success.
