This new author has a remarkable writing and story-telling talent. I hope the book reaches the top of the book list. It deserves it. I also hope there are more books to come, although it would be hard to top this one.
I never would have thought this was a first book! It's a great read and I couldn't put it down. The intrigue and mystery of the family secrets will keep you reading long into the night. I feel as though I am a part of this family somehow and that I have known these characters all of my life. This book had me laughing, crying, and anxious to learn its secrets while at the same time dreading it coming to an end
The Truth About Cinnamon takes the reader on an unforgettable journey. It is a family saga in the best sense of the term. Not only did I come to care about the characters, but I was fascinated by the historical references which tie the book together. I look forward to reading more by this outstanding new author!
