The Brownstone, written by Julie Brown is the first book of The Brownstone Series. Many people have suffered from some sort of loss in their lives, for one reason or another. A reader will find themselves spiritually, emotionally, and mentally connecting with the main character Lilli’s life experiences right away, as the author skillfully weaves them through the concepts of life after death, of joy after devastation, healing, and a journey towards clarification. The story is exciting, adventurous, and far from predictable. A reader will find themselves finished reading quickly, as the suspense to know what happens next is increased with each chapter. I absolutely related to and loved this book. It has everything a well-rounded reader could want; adventure, romance, suspense, and a great mix of events and emotions. This is a must read new series from a promising new author.
