Jane Was Here
By Sarah Kernochan

About the book:

A mysterious young woman calling herself Jane turns up in a small New England town. She claims a fragmentary memory of growing up in this place, yet she has never been here before in her life. Upon her arrival, strange and alarming things begin happening to some of the town’s inhabitants. As Jane’s memories reawaken piece by piece, they carry her back to a long-buried secret, while the townspeople hurtle forward to a horrific event when past and present fatally collide.

My Review: 

When I first started reading Jane Was Here by Sarah Kernochan, I felt a little lost.  While the author did a great job telling the story, it just didn’t dawn on me what was happening.  The book was a puzzle that I felt the need to put together.

As I kept reading Jane Was Here, the story started to come together and make sense.  The author took the time to give us a little history of the main characters of the story, it is important to pay attention because it will make sense in the end.

Just judging by the title, you can guess the book is about Jane.  Jane wanders into a town where she’s never been to and finds a house that she’s never lived in and knocks on the door.  She announces that she used to live here and that it’s her house!  Through Jane’s eyes, she is searching in the present to figure out her past.  She’s trying to figure out how everything in town is so familiar.  The people are different and nobody recognizes her.

Brett Sampson is the current renter of the home that Jane claims to be hers.  He immediately feels close to her and feels the need to protect her.  Marly works at the local bed & breakfast as a housekeeper and Hoyt is a property manager of an estate.   Pay attention to the Brett, Marly, and Hoyt as they are important pieces to the puzzle.

Overall, I enjoyed reading Jane Was Here.  Every piece of the puzzle was tied together perfectly and made sense.  During her quest, Jane learned the truth, she found her answers, she found her past, her present, and got her revenge.  Moments before she died in the past, she realized how her “not so true love” truly felt about her and how quickly his feelings could turn against her.  In the present, she found the one man that will always love her and reunite with him!  This book contains mystery, suspense, romance, history, karma, reincarnation, and the paranormal.  This is a must read!  You will be left stunned!  The characters come to life on the page!
