Editorial Reviews

Buckeye Fan
Night Walks Softly has strong characters that reach out and grab you and beautiful language that keeps you reading. The plot is rich with twists and turns and subplots that are captivating in their own right. This is a great read. The only downside was when it was over; I did not want to leave the story or the setting! I cannot wait for another novel by this author.

    Rich and inspirational fiction!

    This book is rich in so many ways! Great plots and subplots. Beautiful description of the setting. Lovely word choice. Well developed characters.

    This is the kind of book that immerses you in its world and leaves you reluctant to close the last page. Fortunately, there are two more books in the series. I hope the author continues to write more. I feel like I simply cannot get enough of this town, this "world" that is Yellow River.

    Night Walks Softly will surprise you, inspire you, and stay with you. Highly recommend! Read it and start your adventure into Yellow River.

    Loved it.

    I loved the way this book is written. The characters are so real that I really cared about what happened to them. The plot is realistic but unpredictable. This book hooked me at the beginning with the power of its language and pulled me through with its suspense. I highly recommend! Be ready though, you won't want it to end.
