Reviews matter to writers and readers both.  I can hardly describe how thrilling it was to read this review, and to find myself in such excellent company too.  Thanks, Hilary Custance Green.

  1. Great review, could there be better company than Maya Angelou? Congratulations.

  2. This is a wonderful review Cynthia (Hilary writes so well and so succinctly) but your beautiful book deserves nothing less than a wonderful review.

  3. Congratulations on this review!

  4. You’re in good company Cynthia. 🙂

  5. Oh Cynthia, you must have such a beautiful smile on your face! But it’s really about how this kind of review makes one feel inside. It is so good to get recognition, especially in this context. Maya Angelou together with Cynthia Reyes? Now that is cause for a party!
    I have ordered the book ,just now, on Amazon. I don’t want to miss out .

  6. I’ve read both your lovely book and H is for Hawk from the review list, both are highly recommended. 🙂 !

  7. I can understand your being thrilled with this succinct and right-on review. I, too, loved your book. Agree about the excellent company!

  8. Congratulations Cynthia. I love the review as it expressed everything I felt while reading your book and am already looking forward to our week vacation in July where I will read it again!! Tina

    • Thank you very much, Tina. I was so lacking in confidence at first that when people said they were re-reading the book, I’d quake, thinking: And this time they won’t like it at all! I’ve since come to realize that it’s just the kind of book that people read over and over — and that is a huge compliment.

  9. Can’t ask for a better review than that!

  10. Truly good company! I’ve read three of the four and Cynthia your work does belong in that list!

  11. Well, WELL! What a good group to be a member of!

  12. It makes me happy to have made you happy in return for a great and moving read.

  13. Well done, you are in good company. I enjoyed H is for Hawk and I have your lovely book which I love.

  14. Fabulous review Cynthia .. Congratulations

  15. Congratulations! That is a wonderful review, and yes, I found a family truth on every page as well. Waiting for your next book!

    • Thanks, Lavinia, for reading my book and for this nice comment too. I’m working on that next book and am regrettably slow. Plus, the first book got so much great feedback from readers, I’m a bit intimidated about this one!

  16. Congratulations on this wonderful review, very much deserved!
