The Mill by Mark West
Michael struggles to come to terms with the death of his wife. He has visions of her calling to him, inviting him to the beyond.
At the Bereaved Partners’ Group, he learns that he is not the only one left behind who can hear the departed beckon them… to the Mill.
The Mill was an novella that intrigued me. At first, it had me very confused. When Michael was dreaming at the beginning, I had no clue what was going on. Also, his trip to the mill made me a little confused. However, once I started to figure out what was going in, I became very emotionally involved in the story.
I felt bad for Michael. I can't even begin to imagine the heartache that comes from losing a spouse, especially in a terrible way like that. I was hoping that Michael and Saskia would be able to push through their grief together, but unfortunately it didn't happen. The ending to The Mill was predictable, yet still shocking. It will stay with me for a long time.
I give The Mill: 4/5.
