NEW YORK, April 4, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The success and proliferation of e-books means book reviews are increasingly welcomed by readers in today's electronic environment.
One contemporary e-novel that has already broken out from the crowd and made an impression with online reviewers is War In A Beautiful Country by Patricia Ryan.
On its face, the novel is a mystery about an ordinary person who receives random, anonymous threats. Out of the blue, protagonist Regina gets strange, unexpected notes in the mail which threaten to blow her up.
The idea that her life might end violently without warning, and for no apparent reason, forces her to examine her existence; her relationships, her purpose.
Underneath its "mystery," the novel is also about how to live a life in the current reality which individuals around the world now face everyday.
"Because death is unknown, life becomes the puzzle."
Currently War In A Beautiful Country is FREE and readily available on multiple platforms such as Nook, iTunes, Google, Goodreads, Smashwords, and Kindle for 99 cents.
