Poisoned Pen Press 9/8/2020. New hardcover. in Brand New jacket. Store pick: Before She Was Helen was a fun, quirky, almost slapstick story about senior citizens living in a retirement community in SC and what happens when Helen does a good deed and goes into a neighbors condo to make sure he is all right. When a dead body turns up a few days later Helen really has problems as she found something strange during her search for her neighbor and she is afraid that she will finally have to reveal the truth about who she was before she was Helen. While the book seems to be light and frivolous and is quick read there are some serious issues that haunt Helen. After all things just werent done the same way in the 50s when Helen was a teenager. Helen has a lot of secrets and she wants to keep them. I really loved Helens grit and determination and the way she interacted with her neighbors and couldnt wait to see if Helen could stay Helen. -Nancy M., store volunteer
