Review — Home by Calisa Rhose

I thoroughly enjoyed HOME. Calisa Rhose does an excellent job of drawing the reader into the atmosphere of small town life as a veteran returns from the Vietnam War and tries to piece his life back together. Through Calisa’s detailed expression, I was able to experience the isolation Sam felt as he tried to cope with post traumatic stress and survivor’s guilt. The heroine, Poppy, was a spunky, fire-in-her-belly gal that I loved from the beginning and whose unconditional love would heal Sam’s wounded heart. I look forward to reading more from Ms. Calisa Rhose.

Focused. Strong. True.

Review — Persephone by Kaitlin Bevis


If asked, I’m not going to admit that I spent the entire day at work glued to my iPhone because I could not stop reading this book! Persephone is a fresh and interesting interpretation of Greek mythology. The story moves at a brisk pace, and the characters are distinct and alive with emotion. I immediately sympathized with the heroine and enjoyed the romantic tension between her and Hades. Kaitlin Bevis’ attention to detail created a vivid picture in my mind so I could disappear within the pages. My only complaint is that the book ended and I have to wait for the next. If you are looking for a young adult read with unexpected twists and turns in the journey these characters must traverse, Persephone will not disappoint.

Focused. Strong. True.
