The Enchanted

Cover: 'The Enchanted'

Staff Review: "The Enchanted" by Rene Denfeld


The enchanted place is not what you might expect. In fact, it is a prison, and its story is being told by a death row inmate. We are given a front row seat to viewing what goes on in this world and we are pulled along as the lady tries to save the life of a prisoner who simply wants to die. We are also able to glimpse a little of the life of the lady, the warden, the fallen priest, and other staff whose lives play out both in and outside of the enchanted place. Hauntingly beautiful and raw, this story will leave you with a surprising new perspective.

Audience: adults | Genre: fiction
