Hi friends! Today I’m sharing my thoughts on the book The Haven by Amanda Jennings.
*Disclaimer : I received a copy of this ebook for free from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
As you may know, (and if you don’t you do now!) I love a good cult story. I’m not really sure where that stems from, but I find them fascinating. Just the idea that so many people can become brainwashed in the exact same way is just mind boggling to me, I love it!
Anyway, back to The Haven. Tara, Kit, and Jeremy are fast friends. Their bond seems pretty much unbreakable.
Kit and Tara have a little girl, Skye. Kit also has a trust fund and is widely against any sort of commercial wealth. He vows to never touch that money.
But when Jeremy brings forth the idea of living off the grid and becoming self sustaining…the other 2 can’t help but be swept up in his grand plan.
The money funds the initial expenses but they want to make, grow and barter in the future.
This are good for a while, but as with any great idea…plot holes soon arise.
This book was so entertaining I couldn’t wait to see how this little homestead faired in the end.
My favorite character was Dani because she just had such an innocence about her, but not really because she’d seen some things in her own life. She still wanted to believe the good in people I think. Tara too had a good head on her shoulders and took a bold and wide lens approach to life.
Honestly, going off grid and running a farm for survival doesn’t sound half mad some days. The Haven definitely helped fuel that dream. (Minus the narcissistic leader, of course.)
The Haven gets 5 stars from me. Loved every word.
