    Read and Be Taken Away

    I found Joseph Pittman's writing style to be thoroughly immersable. As soon as I began I was part of Brians world - Following him from NYC to Linden Corners a place I would love to find, (It has made me want to get in my car and traverse upper state NY to find a spot like this.) while meeting his new friends and his old friends. Mr. Pittman weaves his story with love and care, providing twists and turns along the way. It's a delightful story with a lot of heart. I recommend it wholeheartedly to anyone.

    powerful relationship drama

    After seven years at the Beckford Group as an executive, Brian Duncan believes he has everything. He is quite good at his work, which he enjoys. He loves and plans to marry his peer at the company Maddy Chason. The only bad thing that recently has happened to Brian is catching Hepatitis, leaving him home bound for six weeks while Maddy and their boss Justin Warfield pursues a major contract. <P>However, as Brian recovers his health, he goes over to visit Maddy only to see her in bed with Justin. Brian leaves without making a scene, quits his job, and drops Maddy. Next Brian leaves New York heading up the Hudson in search of something to believe in. When he notices a windmill, he decides to stop. There he meets a child Janey Sullivan and her mother Annie. As Brian finds himself not wanting to leave Linden Corners because of the women in his life, he begins to heal, not yet aware that his greatest test is soon to come. <P>TILTING AT WINDMILLS is a powerful relationship drama that readers will enjoy due to Brian, an empathetic hero, seeking a new life to reinvigorate his soul. The story line is moving and poignant, touching heartstrings, especially the ending. The support cast in Manhattan and in Linden Falls supplements the readers¿ insight into Brian although the characters in the former seem too ¿sinful¿ and in the latter too ¿pure¿. Joseph Pittman provides his audience with a deep look inside the soul of a lost person desperately seeking something or someone to hold onto forever. <P>Harriet Klausner
