A fan letter!

Well, well, well, a fan letter. My first (and my first review so far). I was so chuffed and I have to reproduce it here (watch out, there are a couple of spoilers):



SPOILER




I read the book in one swoop. I couldn’t put it down. I fell in love with Sam, all the heartache, all the pain and insults he went through and he turned out to be a finer person than most people growing up in luxury. In a way Alex did too, that’s part of the reason the boys were drawn together which lasted into adulthood. I loved how Sam loved animals and people. Sam fought for what he thought was right, his sister, his homeless friend and most of all for Alex who he’d loved from childhood. Sam did not take Alex away from his family. I was sad for Sam but he did what he thought was right, he knew what it was like to have no parents to love you. He couldn’t let Alex’s child suffer the same fate. This story is too special to rush through like I did. I will read it again.

Thank you Torry!

  1. Hi Sue, I had written a whole lot more but the card I send only allows
    1000 characters and I had over 2000, so I have to send you an e-mail after I lose my self into your story once again.
    I hope I didn't give away to much, I didn't know you were going to post my comment. I don't mind, it is rather a pleasure since I never did this before. I'm sure there isn't going to be anyone who starts to read this story who is able to put it aside for very long, if at all.
    Big Hug,
    Torry

  5. Such a nice compliment. Blogging is fun, I'm hosting a Halloween party starting tomorrow. It's a great way to gain more followers. But I will understand if you can't do it. Just a thought.

  6. Ooh, I'd love to come, Nancy - but it'd mean a Transatlantic flight!
    I hope you have a super time.
    Thanks for your comment,
