On Tenterhooks is a beautiful story about friendship and the everyday struggles that women face. The story takes place in present-day Chicago. But, when Lucy discovers a journal hidden in a wall in her apartment, she also learns of another woman’s story from the past. Bottom line-I LOVED IT. There are some truly beautiful descriptions and the characters! Lucy and Claire felt real. And, granny? Adored her. It was one of those books that I looked forward to going back to like a warm cup of coffee. The trials and tribulations of the women truly resonated with me. I think this novella will appeal to women of all generations.
