“Mr. Splitfoot” by Samantha Hunt

BethanyRecommended by BethanyMr. Splitfoot

This story follows Cora and her voiceless aunt, Ruth, as they walk from one end of New York to the other. The plot is set up in a dual timeline. We learn about Ruth’s childhood in a group home run by a religious fanatic, and as her past meets the future, the two plot lines intertwine flawlessly. This book is as much a mystery as it is a fantasy. It is the first true Gothic fiction novel that I have read in a long time, and it lives up to the genre.
