Encouragement by a Reader

About the time I get discouraged with a story I am writing, I get a five star review on Harbored Secrets like this new one today. I had to share it.

Marie Martin is a masterful writer!

This book was exquisite! The story spans a time period of almost 60 years, using flashbacks, and the author does a masterful job of revealing just the right amount of information to us at just the right time — never too early, and never too late. (Probably the best I’ve ever read in this regard.) The author also has a fierce grasp of the English language — she uses a wide variety of words in this book, not to show off her large vocabulary, but because she knows precisely what words work best for the story. In reading it, I experienced the intellectual equivalent of sinking down into a warm bubble bath — a little hot for the first several seconds, but then I relaxed into it and didn’t want to get out.
