The Forever Year (The Hearts of Men Book 1) - Lou Aronica

The Forever Year (The Hearts of Men book 1) by Lou Aronica
Have read other works by the author and have enjoyed the books.
This one starts out with Mickey Sienna and he's 83 and his wife has been gone 4 years now and he's not himself. He ends up starting a fire in the kitchen and the neighbors rescue him while calling the fire department.
The grown children learn of it and they get together and decide it's time he goes into assisted living or a nursing home.
The youngest, Jessie, single says he will take him to live with him and the others sign off on it all together. Jessie is a writer who does feature stories and he has a girl Marina who is a schoolteacher.
Love how the father opens up about Gina-his first love because he nor any of the other siblings know anything about this. He confides in Marina and she does meet Mickey and they get along great.
Love the story inside the story and especially the care Jessie gives to his father while he's alive. Tragic at the end but also eye opening to understand what the father was trying to tell his son about his own life and how he wanted him to NOT walk in the same steps he had taken.
Excerpts from the authors other works are included at the end.
Received this review copy from the author and this is my honest opinion.

A Dozen Truths: 12 Works of Fiction - Lou Aronica,Aaron Brown

A Dozen Truths by assorted authors
When I realized who was involved in this compilation of writings I knew it would be a great read.
What I had not expected was to find so many different genres that I don't normally read and was a good change.
Each chapter has a different author where a short summary of their works and their bio are included.  At the very end there are more indepth excerpts and more about the authors writings.
Enjoyed a large majority of the stories and lessons learned, some leaving a smile on my face at the end. Some genres I just can't seem to get into-sci fic and horror/thriller.
Had never heard of www.authorsfirst.com  site so had to go check it out to understand about it.
Enjoyed many of the stories because I was able to relate to them in my lifetime of things that have happened to me or a family member, brought back a lot of happy memories..
Found a lot of new authors I'll be on the lookout for their works.
Received this book via one of the authors in the anthology via The Story Plant and this is my honest review.

It's fourteenth century Italy . . .
The Bronze and the Brimstone - Lory S Kaufman,Lou Aronica

. . . And a young woman is slowly being poisoned to death at the order of the Duke.


a nobleman, a friend of the family but also close to the Duke, stops in at the house, where everyone is upset at the deathly illness that has overtaken Giulietta.  The nobleman sees the "medicine," smells the girl's breath, and immediately knows what is happening here.  Now he's in a quandary.  He's made it this far in this political climate because he knows what is his business and what is not.  And this is not. But these people are his friends.  He puts his head in his hands to think.


"These deals with the devil, these complicities by complacency, were the things that made good men of ability question if there really would be a place in Heaven for them."
