What others are saying about âThe Violets Are Mineâ

â The saga of an English boy begins with a child who is beaten by caretakers who ran the orphanages during the 30âs and 40âs in England. You will laugh and you will cry, but you will be captivated with the book and will not be able to put it down. It speaks to growing up without a home and the love of a family. It is written as Lester speaks, and does what many an author cannot do, it speaks from the heart.

This is a success story about the trials of Lester, about the penny-farthing bike experience and the fun of a child, about lifeâ"but something more than that! A lot of things happen to successful people; but it just doesnât happen by chance to Lester. He tells it as he sees it, and his success comes from his love of life, his wife Val, and the many people who come into contact with Lesterâ"a truly unforgettable character.
Read the book â you will be a better person for it!â â Pat Tucker

âLester paints scenes that come alive in amazing detail. I love the misadventures and the humor.â Cindy Jones

âThe Violets Are Mine is reminiscent of Charles Dickens or âAngelaâs Ashesâ but he added a twist â a much needed sense of humor.â Denniger Bolton
