“In this case heavy is good, very good.”
“THE BONE CHURCH (Pier’s Court Press, April 2014) by debut author Victoria Dougherty is possibly one of the darkest and most sophisticated historical novels you’ll be able to put your hands on.”
“This novel has it all….an addictive jaunt into a world of paranoia, deceit, mistrust, and then the ultimate betrayal. I really really really loved this book!”
