I have done my review but I just want to take a moment to thank B&N for the opportunity to read this book. I would not have chosen it outside of FIrst Look, but I loved the book. Just goes to show that you need to step outside your normal reading for some really great reads! Thanks again B&N!

While this isn't the type of book I typically gravitate towards, I found it very thought-provoking and well done.

Here's my review:
The book was really fantastic! It's not normally the type of book that I tend to grab off the shelf, but I'm glad I got the opportunity to read it because I definitely loved it. Thanks B&N!

I admit, I have tried to finish the book: The Wake of forgiveness. Unfortunately, I can't put my finger in it but I struggled to get half way through it. The book (what part I was able to struggle through) seemed to have no pattern except to bounce all over the place. The book was not my "cup of tea" but I thank BN for the opportunity to discover a new author.

As many readers have already stated, this is not a book I would normally pick up & read. As such, I am thankful to B & N for giving me the opportunity to broaden my horizons & delve into something out of my norm. Not always an easy book to read, I did in the end have to say I liked it.

I have posted my review. Thank you for the opportunity to read The Wake of Forgiveness. I did have a little trouble getting through it. I found it hard to like any of the characters. First Look has introduced me to several books I would not have chosen on my own. Thank you!!!

I have posted my review on the product page. I am so glad I had the opportunity to participate in the First Look for this book. I'm not sure I would have picked it up off the shelf at the bookstore. That would have been my great loss. I have not read a book recently that was so eloquent. An amazing read. Thanks again for the opportunity.
I would also like to thank Bruce. His degree of participation was unusual and his responses insightful.

Thank you again, Barnes and Noble, for providing the First Look book clubs. I posted my review on the product page. Enjoyed reading the other reviews, too.

I have a short review here. I really enjoyed this book even though it was difficult to read at times. The harshness of the circumstances was painted so realistically.

I loved the chance to read The Wake of Forgiveness, thank you Barnes & Noble.
I found the first part of the book hard to get into but once I got the feel for the brothers I could not put it down.
I am a Mystery, thriller reader and this was a new experience for me. I will now look to read more books in this series.

Here's my Review:
It's been a pleasure discussing this novel with all of you and I can't wait 'til the next one. These discussions enrich reading so much and I love the thoughts and ideas all of you share.
I hope to be "seeing" all of you again soon!

I (finally) posted my review on the product page. Thank you, B&N for this opportunity. As others have said, this was not a book I would have picked up on my own, but it was a satisfying, powerful book, and I'm glad for the opportunity not only to read it, but to benefit from the discussion.
