ANOTHER NICE REVIEW, AND A GOOD PARTY YESTERDAY   8 comments

Another nice review of “Figs & Pomegranates & Special Cheeses” has been posted on amazon (both US and UK sites.) Many thanks to Arpad B. When you go to the site, be sure to scroll down and select newest review first.

I received this book free in exchange for a review. I really enjoyed it and am happy to recommend it. I felt drawn into the story straight away. The author quickly and effectively builds the world of Dara and her family. You warm immediately to the characters and their story and I found this book difficult to put down as I wanted to know what happened next. It’s very skillful writing as the author depicts the images and colours of the world, the hopes and fears of the characters and moves the story along.at a good pace. Although it’s based on the story of Job you don’t need to know anything about this to enjoy the story.

Also, I’m happy to report that we had a nice group at yesterday’s party  for the anthology “Where Rivers Converge” by the Carver County Writers Group. The readings were fun, interesting, and often moving. The atmosphere at the Sower Gallery at Shepherd of the Hill Presbyterian Church in Chaska, MN,  was lovely, even fascinating, with it’s great display of local art.

  2. Mona, I’m sorry to have missed it. I was confused by an email from the Sower Gallery cancelling a scheduled event. I was confused and thought it was referring to this event. Bummer. Glad to see the good additional review on Amazon.

  3. Sorry I didn’t get there. My granddaughter’s wedding was on Saturday and I had done a lot of driving, was very tired and needed to get home and rest. I’m happy it was a successful event.

    Hope to see you soon! Marilyn

    • I have to say it would have been a lovely surprise. Congratulations on the wedding, and surviving all the driving. I hope we’ll see each other soon. (And you might enjoy visiting the latest show at the Sower gallery, one artist to lots of others.)
