Item Description...
Claire Trowling is on a quest. After receiving news of her sister Becca's abrupt disappearance, Claire must piece together the shadowy remnants of a past shes long forgotten in order to find her. A cryptic note scrawled in Becca's handwriting leaves more questions than it answers:

Something both terrible and wonderful has happened. I can't explain now...

When a stack of mysterious letters bound by a rare necklace is found, Claire heads to England--the source of the heirloom--for answers. With the help of a rectory gardener she remembers from her childhood, Claire races to discover the secrets that hold her family captive.

Suspenseful and full of intrigue, Skizzer takes readers on a transcontinental hunt for answers weaving seamlessly between the distant past of childhood and the urgency of the present.

2 stars  Feb 22, 2008
When her beloved sister, or "skizzer", goes missing, Claire finds herself joining forces with her puzzled brother-in-law to journey through the past the two women shared, trying to find a trail that will lead them to Becca. Their quest will reveal many things that were lost in Claire's memory, and will also bring her face to face with a secret, with tears, and with a second chance.

Perhaps if I did not find flashbacks to be tedious to read, I'd have liked this rambling, meandering novel. However, jumping back and forth in time works well for science fiction and fantasy, not so much for straight fiction. Moreover, while it is a clean book, and that is to be commended, though published in the inspirational genre, I failed to see how it fulfilled that description.

Wonderful mystery!  Feb 21, 2008
A wonderful and tender mystery that was part "National Treasure" with historical clues leading to important discoveries, part love story, part genealogy, and lots of enjoyment.
Stunning debut novel that grips from page one!  Feb 15, 2008
Family secrets abound in this novel. "Skizzer" reads like a cross between "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil", "Steel Magnolias", and "Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe". Rich with Southern gothic atmosphere, this is also a novel of deep faith and returning to your belief in God.

It's a novel about finding out where home is, and then making your way back. "Skizzer" is a novel that transcends time and place, with frequent flashbacks to Claire's childhood and her family history, as well as changes in locale.

As one who has uncovered many family secrets myself, I can testify to the destructive nature of hiding things that will only later come out. But I can also testify, as can this novel, to God's healing power once we let what was hidden out into His light.

I enjoyed "Skizzer" (which, by the way, comes from Becca being unable to say "sister"...ironically:-), and I believe you will as well. This is a stunning debut and I for one will be highly disappointed if I don't hear more about this wonderful new author.
Wow! This book will keep you reading until the end!  Jan 21, 2008
This intriguing novel will captivate you until the very end. The characters are very well developed and you find yourself longing to know more about each one of them. It's a book that will not go unfinished. A must read and I just hope this author is preparing to publish another book. Skizzer II where are you?
"Hook-laden" with captivating intrigue -- "Skizzer" is one novel you won't want to put down!   Jan 21, 2008
With all the intensity of what's going on in my life at the moment, I was so in hopes "Skizzer" would turn out to be a quality gripping novel that I could curl up with a hot cup of tea and get lost in. "Skizzer" had me in that setting on the first page! Something about "the wind was lashing at my windshield" caused me to settle in a little farther under the covers--and with every turn of the page I was loving this book even more!

Becca seems to fly by the seat of her pants and Claire is the down to earth, structured "sensible" one--(who I think secretly wishes she wasn't.) Becca is "high maintenance" and seems to be "darn proud of it." And Claire seems to pay dearly for it. (At least she thinks she does.) Because Becca seems to be a bit of a spoiled brat who Claire probably spent a lot of her younger years covering for. I'm so into the the storyline and yet, at the same time, I find I've somehow created my own little "guessing game" in an attempt to determine the character of these two "characters"! And now I find myself trying to figure out just what there is about this book that I feel so compelled to do it! And then, just when I thought I had them "sized up", Claire unexpectedly said something so completely "out of character" that I laughed right out loud!

I particularly LOVE how every night this book creates the "escape" I was looking for, alleviating the stress of the day. And as I put it down and turn off the light--I just seem to drift off to sleep. I'm not clear on whether I'm what you'd called "skilled" at recognizing a good novel. But since I've already found myself reasoning that if I limit myself to a couple of chapters each night, and then read it through again once or twice---it might it buy me enough time for A.J. Kiesling to have written another--I figure it pretty much qualifies me as such. For an author's first novel?--What an EXCELLENT, well-written, hard to put down captivating read!
