An excerpt of Kilea

20 Feb

It is with great pleasure that I share with you an excerpt of the literary novel Kilea by Helen McClory.  Necessary Fiction, a literary web journal, has selected a passage of Kilea to share with their readers.

On reading the first few pages of Kilea, I instantly knew that Helen was someone I had to work with. The voice of Kilea was so unique and tender, that I was immediately mesmerized by her narrative. As a reader, you want nothing more than to protect Kilea from the loathsome minister, and to see redemption served…

Helen’s crafting of characters and setting, is as equally absorbing as it is haunting. Eliciting a roller coaster of emotions, Kilea is a beautifully stark and touching tale that resonates with the reader long after the final pages have been read.
