Children of the Fog

Children of the Fog - Cheryl Kaye Tardif What were the main relationships explored in this book? Marriage and parenting. Most times when a couple lose a child, the marriage suffers. But what if the marriage already had problems to start with? This was a crucial element in this story. Sadie tries to hide from the present but whether she is running from the loss of her child or the fact that her marriage was over before she realised it, that remains a question for the reader to come to terms with.
3 things I liked about the book … The paranormal element. Sadie loses Sam and then finds that the children in the fog need her as a mother. In some ways, this was like the movie Dark Water or Don't Be Afraid of the Dark, where maternal instints rule. Second, I loved the writing. The author has a natural flair and it often feels like you are watching the story unfold in front of you. Lastly, I loved her character development. Each character is introduced to the reader in ways they can make an easy connection.
Favourite character(s) … I'm going to pick Sadie. She had a lot coming towards her and it was difficult to stay sane. On the one hand, you think she's lost her marbles and then on the other, you want to anything you can to make her feel better.
