A short haunting book, good and evil and the thin line

This author's writing style was too clunky and slow for me; I couldn't engage with it. I found the present tense odd to read and stumbled over it several times. I had to give this one up after forty pages, before the plot actually began, which is far too long in my opinion for an author to write on and on and still not have the plot begin.

If you're blessed with patience and a windfall of time, maybe this book is for you.

The stalker (Mr. Hilditch) patiently and slyly entrapped his prey. It was just a matter of when and where; not if. The novel Felicia's Journey is a fascinating look into the mind of an outwardly seemingly normal man who adeptly covered up inner demons. Set in pre-birth control days, Felicia was thrust into the painful situation of being a pregnant teenager. With few clues regarding the whereabouts of the father of her baby, she left her homeland of Ireland and fled to England. Her story unravels as the reader becomes more and more interested in Felicia's fate after being befriended by Mr. Hilditch.
