In My Own Words:
I am so sorry but I am unable to review any self-published books. I have far too many books I have searched out and bought waiting to be read, so my to be read pile contains 6 months of reading material.

As requests from self-published authors happen, despite this disclaimer, on an almost daily basis, I am unable even to reply with the information above, to explain why, with regret, I can't re… Read more

Bodies of Light by Sarah Moss
Bodies of Light by Sarah Moss

Clara by Janice Galloway
Clara by Janice Galloway
Janice Galloway's Clara, a biography as fiction of Clara Schumann, born Clara Wieck, pianist and composer, who married Robert Schumann and bore him 8 children, was something of a struggle, for many right reasons, but also, perhaps, a victim of its attempt to write from both an objective perspective, and from a within the mind of both Robert and Clara.
