Author, Margaret Lukas (Margie), shared with us her experiences as a writer, mother, teacher, and wife; in other words she shared her life experiences and how they all fell into place as she wrote The Farthest House. Because of Margie, our discussion was open, lively, and filled with questions, laughter and shared dismay. When asked about how we could help her, she replied that writing reviews and sharing our read with others would be a wonderful help. So anyone reading this, feel free to jump into reading The Farthest House by Margaret Lukas; intrigue, Nebraska, love, deception, fine characterizations, ghosts and psychic powers.
