Re: Please Post Your Reviews!

I've posted my review on this site as well as my blog.  By the way, anyone know how to make paragraphs show up on the Barnes and Noble site?  It's been making me crazy for a while now.  It always shows fine in the preview, but combines into one paragraph once it's posted.

I am a writer. One thing I’ve learned in the course of my career is that what makes a writer is...Writing. Not talking about writing or hanging out with writers, not publicity or promotion or social networking, not even getting published. Writers write. We put into words whatever is true or interesting, titillating or inspiring, entertaining or provoking. That is our job. That defines us. If we get lucky, we get paid. But there is value and dignity in the work, whether we are driven by an inner need or the need for a paycheck, whether we make money at it or not.

Re: Please Post Your Reviews!

This book was off to a slow start and it never recovered.  As a debut novel, the author has to grab the reader.  I read where some complained about the jumping around.  My two favorite war type novels have down that but with success..The Corner of Bitter and Sweet is an example of drawing you right into the story on the first page. The other was a little longer for the grab...The Gurnsey Literary and Potato Peel Society. 

A story of three women from different cultures and places has a great potential for a good read and the author did a great job of describing the events and scenes....just need to work on the grab.

I am personally tired of waiting until page 100 for a story to appeal to me.
