"At its core, this is a story about class, karma and ordinary people trying to accomplish difficult goals that require extraordinary strength of body, mind and spirit... a strong, engaging voice ... A satisfying, feel-good novel about human shortcomings, perseverance and serendipity." Kirkus Reviews
“Readers be warned - this book is addictive. Every now and then I come across a book that refuses to be set aside. A book that has me thinking, ‘I can throw a TV dinner in the microwave for the family.’ A book that I read while everyone else in the room is watching one of my favorite television shows. A book that lingers on the edge of my consciousness until I finish the last sentence. Cooper Moon: The Calling by Cheryl Shireman is just such a book.” Paula K. Parker of H.J. Live.
“Ms. Shireman solidly grounds her characters with sincerity and strong personality. There was not a character described that I didn’t feel I knew personally by the end of the book….I cannot give it enough good press. Love, love, love it!” Charlene Mabie-Gamble of Literary R & R
“Enter a cast of characters that are so interesting, so unique—and yet so like yourself and people you know—you won’t want to stop turning the pages. Author Cheryl Shireman is a master at creating intrigue through her characters.” Carolyn Warren
