Winner of the 2008 IPPY Award for Excellence in
Independent Publishing--Silver Medal in Science
In early summer of 1973 a restless young woman,
resentful of her crippled husband and two young children,
goes on a "night with the girls," only to find herself running
for her life...
In the same coastal town not far away, a mentally ill man
tormented by "aliens" takes refuge from a storm in his
cardboard box home...
What could these people possibly have in common?
Enter another young woman living in the distant
future--the year 2202--and struggling with a life-crippling
phobia, who makes an extraordinary choice that will soon
change all three of their lives forever.
You can time travel with her novel, The Starfish People. Follow
Sera as she travels back in time to find the reason for the horrific
dreams that brings her characters to life, allowing the reader to
experience the world - past and future - through the eyes of these
characters. You won't want to put this science fiction thriller down!
The future as described in The Starfish People and the character
development are what I found to be most clever and enthralling. I
became engrossed in the characters and their stories as they
related to Sera in her time travel. They seemed so real as did the
whole story! I found that I cared for and had emotions for these
characters! I read the book in one sitting and was captured from
the first chapter to the last line. The author, Leann Marshall, is a
master at taking the reader from his/her time and space to hers!
Leann Marshall's The Starfish People is such a wonderful writing
(recognized for excellence as the Independent Publisher Books
Awards’ Silver Medal Winner for Science Fiction/Fantasy); one
must ask just what it was that could possibly have won the gold? A
truly compulsive read leaving behind an energy signature all its
own! *****__John E. Cashwell
