Utterly Alone

Babies do weird things to people. Especially when said baby is found buried in the snow, clinging to a dead woman.

While one uses the time for personal reflection, the other remains in their cloud of plausible deniability.

Some peoples baggage is sorted and arranged. Taken out once in a while to open up and look at. Others have a suitcase bursting at the seams, held together with a thick chain and 3 padlocks. Never acknowledging it. Unfortunately we will have to wait until book 6 to open our beloved Sheriff’s box of secrets though.

We did learn plenty of secrets about the Hostiles and the First and Second Settlements though. I have been so curious about the other groups in this series. While trying to track down baby Abby’s parents we come across the good, the bad and the ugly of living in the wild Yukon woods. Kelley also touches on some real heavy topics like Incels and White Saviour Syndrome.

I was lying in the middle of this walking path in the woods with Jacob standing beside me waving a red cape around like a matador for at least 15 minutes. He was getting weirded out about the people staring at us so I finally let him off the hook. I don’t think he has grasped the concept of #doitfortheblog yet. But he will…
