337 follows the life of Samuel Darte whose mother vanished when he was in his teens. It was his brother, Tom who found her wedding ring on the kitchen table along with the note.

While their father pays the price of his mother’s disappearance, Sam learns that his long-estranged Gramma is living out her last days in a nursing home nearby.

Keen to learn about what really happened that day and realising the importance of how little time there is, he visits her to finally get the truth.

Soon it’ll be too late and the family secrets will be lost forever. Reduced to ashes. But in a story like this, nothing is as it seems.

337 by M. Jonathan Lee

Dark and heavy with atmosphere, M. Jonathan Lee’s 377 is the story of a family whose last shred of familial ties was shredded the day a young mother disappeared and left her two small boys to fend for themselves with an emotionally stilted father and a coldly distant grandmother. Decades will pass and the narrator, Sam will finally come face to face with the questions that were never answered when he learns his grandmother is now on her deathbed.

Tense and emotionally jagged, will the truth of what became of their mother finally set Samuel free to live or will he find even darker skeletons lurking in the family’s closets? Can he ever regain a relationship with his younger brother and his father? Is he strong enough to hear what a dying woman has to say?

M. Jonathan Lee’s tale doesn’t move at breakneck speed, but it will grab readers by the throat and hold them captive from start to finish, almost like that nightmare one cannot seem to awake from. This author uses his words to create a powerhouse of turmoil, leaving readers wondering what just hit them.

I received a complimentary copy from Hideaway Fall! This is my honest and voluntary review.
