All Around the Town :: All Around the Town
All Around the township Mary Higgins Clark started her create verbally career writing suspense stories and she hasnt changed very much since then. All her books are very interesting to read and they will always keep your attention to the end. All Around the Town was one of the stories written by Mary Higgins Clark. This book was a suspenseful, interesting, intriguing book. It held my interest until the end. The plot was twisty and unpredictable which meant that I would never get bored. The chronicle takes place in Ridgewood, New Jersey. It takes place from June 1974 to about September 1991. This effects the rest of the yarn because this is the time period that the briny character had her abduction and her multiple personalities started to form. The main character in this story was Laurie Kenyon, a four year old girl in the beginning of the story who eventually grows up to be a twenty-one year old woman. She has blond fuzz, green eyes and a fragile little body. Sarah Kenyon is present throughout the story. She is Lauries sister and helps Laurie deal with all her problems as best she can. Bic and Opal were Lauries abductors. Bic had a beard and his arms had a lot of curly hair. He was a very domineering person towards Opal and Laurie. Opal had long stringy hair and had a plain face. She was passive and did whatever she was told. They were con-artist who fooled everyone they met. They were mean and didnt care about anybody else but themselves. Justin Donnelly was the psychiatrist who helped Laurie with therapy and helped find the real person that was within her all along. The story begins when Laurie Kenyon was abducted by Bic and Opal when she was four years old. They abused her sexually and mentally when they had her for those two, long, tedious years. When they were doing these things to her such as sexually abusing her she would place herself in a different assure of mind, which over time began to be her altered personalities. She had four main al tered personalities which were Leona, the woman in Laurie, Debbie, the baby or woos, Kate, the strong leader of the bunch, and Lee, the little scared shy nine year old boy who helped, in the end, bring all the personalities together as one.
