Gothic Readers Book Club Award Review for The Dazzling Darkness    8-5-13

Dazzling sums up Paula Cappa’s paranormal/ supernatural novel. Set in Concord Massachusetts, the  spirits of transcendentalists Emerson, Thoreau, and Alcott wander the woods near an old cemetery. Elias Hatch, the cemetery keeper, is the last of the transcendentalists in our age. There are also secrets, guilt, and pain hidden among the old tombstones. The straightforward narrative is about a kidnapping, the clues, and a family suffering from their loss. Poetry’s woven among the plot to give the prose an elegance and grace that seduces you. The metaphorical elements bring a fascinating dimension to the supernatural elements.
