The Scarlet Pen

The Scarlet Pen (True Colors)The Scarlet Pen by Jennifer Uhlarik
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a true-crime story woven into a historical fiction novel. I’m a fan of author Jennifer Uhlarik, so no surprise that I liked it, but there was a lot to like. The characters were believable and relatable, not perfect. The Christian faith element was strong and prominent throughout the story. The actual history was deftly blended into the fictional characters’ lives. The gruesomeness of the crimes was portrayed adequately without being gratuitous or glamorizing the evil. And it was a historical event I knew nothing about! That’s always a nice plus. This book releases on July 1st, pre-orders are up on Amazon now.
