Synopsis: What kind of demons await you tonight?

For Richie, life’s constant cheap shots are adding up. When he finds something is watching him, he never dreamed that it would show him everything he ever wanted.

When his son, James, comes to stay for the last month of summer, the changes in his father’s behavior come to the forefront. What is his father doing staring into the window in the middle of the night?
Was the fiery spark in the dark real? Or is Jame’s imagination getting the best of him?

Summer’s almost over.
And life is about to change.
Will James be able to save his father? Or is it already too late?

The Window holds the answers…and the key.

My Review-

Glenn Rolfe is one of the many, many writers I enjoy reading. The Window, his latest work, had me remembering why I enjoy his writing within the first few chapters. The numerous references to music, TV shows, movies all from a time I remember fondly. Most importantly is the way he develops his characters.

I connected to the rag-tag young group of kids almost immediately. I loved the way Glenn Rolfe captured that time in our lives when life goes to the extremes in a heartbeat. I felt so many emotions reading The Window, many as James had to deal with his new life with his Mother, the life he was leaving behind with his Dad, and all his friends.

Also, the relationships we see between James and Carrie, along with his friends was well done, and authentic. The theme of good vs evil combined with a group of kids fighting to end with this demon was great to watch. While I’m not a fan of demons or evil spirits, Glenn Rolfe had me enjoying the heck out of myself anyway. Well done is all I can say, and I look forward to seeing what Glenn has up his sleeve next!
