Review: The Land Beyond the Portal by J.S Bailey

It's a dark, snowy night when Laura awakens at the bottom of a staircase with a horrible headache and no idea how she got there. To make matters worse, she is alone in the house, snowed in by a blizzard, with no way to call for help. While exploring the house in a desperate attempt to trigger the return of her memory, she discovers a small room beneath the basement. She steps inside, and an unknown force instantly transports her to a mysterious, pastoral land.
She finds a quaint village that at first glance seems life a peaceful place: but Laura soon learns that peace is merely an illusion. Why are terrible rumors circulating about the village's leader? Why do the villagers worship a sinister deity who bears no resemblance to her own powerful and loving God? Most importantly, will she ever remember who she is and find her way home? In her quest for answers, she uncovers a myriad of forbidden secrets that might keep her trapped in The Land Beyond the Portal.

J.S. Bailey lives with her husband, Nathan, in Southwest Ohio. She loves astronomy, crocheting, metal detecting, reading and writing. She also is quite found of Mexican cuisine. The Land Beyond the Portal is J.S. Bailey's first novel.

J.S. Bailey did a wonderful job on this heart-warming, inspirational story. I was hooked from beginning to end. With loveable characters and a great story line, this book is definitely a must read!
  Since this book is not the kind of book I would usually read, I was worried I wouldn't be able to get into it. But I was so wrong! The twist and turns in this book will keep you guessing till the end. Just when you think you have it all figured out J.S. Bailey throws another curve ball at you! It takes a great author to pull this off, but  J.S. Bailey did just that. I give this book 4 stars. So what are you waiting for? Read it for yourself and enjoy your journey through the portal!
