    Lost Souls

    "A Scarecrow's Bible" has an intriguing premise, but it fails to deliver the goods. The story of a rural Mississippi middle-aged war veteran who falls for a man half his age while his family is disintegrating (wife leaves for another man; daughter leaves home for a job in New Orleans) is an original premise, no doubt. But there's a catch; both the construction worker vet and his unemployed new boyfriend are drug addicts. Their alternating stories and interactions are almost always examined through the haze of their highs and lows, and this loses the reader's interest because it is so unrelenting. Reading the novel is like trying to decipher the conversation between two drunks at a party. No question there's some strong writing here, but the two main characters are too disconnected from each other and reality for the reader to empathize or even recognize. Not recommended.

    Hauntingly Beautiful

    Does not read like a debut novel. This book speaks deeply to the reader, long after the last page is read the story remains in the heart. I hope to see many more books by Martin Hyatt in the bookstores!

    Positively Stunning

    I was completely captivated by this story. The characters are so 'real' they could be your neighbors, your family. Such a painfully lovely reminder that love and acceptance heals- even when it hurts, it truly does. This is a novel that will stay with the reader long after it is finished.
