But This Is Different
Mary Baron has concocted a unique take on the mystery of the disappearance of Amelia Earhart by weaving a lesbian love theme into the speculation. Although there are lighter moments in the story, such as when Mere encounters new technological developments and some misadventures during her journey, the writing is poetic and literary. Mere’s emotions and despair at broken promises are portrayed lucidly; despite the hardships she is determined in her quest. While the conclusion drags, a wonderful surprise awaits in the finale, providing a thrilling and emotional experience for readers. Recommended.
