Starburst (Book 1: Women of the Grey) by Carol James Marshall is a beautifully written book.
Lisa is one of many. They are all the same and none different. Lisa has been given a mission, but even she is unclear of what she is supposed to do. One by one, we meet her marks. Seemingly unconnected people living in a desperately sad and disconnected world. Lisa slowly befriends each of them. She has a date for the end point and must draw them each to her by that time.
The characters are intriguing and well-written. Marshall doles out bits of their backstories in tantalizing peeks into their hidden thoughts. Each is burdened and weary. But how do they fit into the plan? As the end point rapidly approaches, the lives of Lisa's marks spin out of control. I couldn't stop reading until the very end. This book is full of fascinating characters, and it is packed with action until the very last page. Starburst is the first book in the Women of the Grey series, and I cannot wait to read book 2!
