Cherry Grove: A Short Story from the Bayou Boogaloo by CL Lucas
Cherry Grove: A Short Story from the Bay... Cherry Grove: A Short Story from the Bayou Boogaloo - CL Lucas,CL Lucas

Cherry Grove: A Short Story from the Bayou Boogaloo by CL Lucas is a fast, but disturbing read. It's about a young sailor who will later become the Sheriff of New Iberia, Louisiana. He's on leave in the Philippines. He's looking for a hooker. It's a good thing he finds one who doesn't speak English.

 

I gave it three stars.

 

I received a complimentary kindle copy from Amazon. That did not change my opinion for this review.

Why do we cry?
Dear Mona Lisa... - Al Stewart,Claire Davis

We cry for so many reasons…sadness, grief, heartache, loss, pain, suffering…so many heartbreaking reasons but there are other times that we cry as well…the good times the happy times and these are the best kinds of tears.

 

I cried when I got married tears of absolute joy and again when my son was born. These were wonderful events in my life but I have to admit it’s not often that I can say I cried because something was so beautiful so breathtaking that the beauty of it brought me to tears…this book is one of those times for me.

 

I’m not going to talk about the story and what happened in it because honestly my goal here is to share with you my fellow reader how beautiful I thought this story was so that hopefully when you get done reading what I sincerely hope won’t be a pitifully inadequate review the first thing you’ll want to do is get your hands on a copy of this book so you can read it as well.

 

I’m not sure that I’ve ever read a story that wrapped itself around my heart so tightly in so few pages. ‘Dear Mona Lisa’ is about love. It’s about Tom’s love for Loz, for his beautiful daughter Lou and for the other wonderful and not so wonderful people in his life and it’s about their love for him. Yes, there is sadness in Tom’s life and it’s shared with us through his memories and truthfully if not for the pain and heartache how would we truly know to appreciate and treasure the good. It’s all part of life. Thankfully Tom’s heartache is in his past and while it’s shard with us it’s not the focus of this story…it’s his life in the here and now that’s important.

 

Have you ever felt like your life is leading up to one moment, that one pivotal event that will make everything else fall into place…this is the moment that we are being led to in Tom’s life and we view it through his eyes. Much of what happens may at times seem inconsequential but for Tom it’s not and it’s all leading him to that one moment that everything else hinges on.

 

I could easily go on and on about this book, I loved it that much and when it came time to do my review I was torn because I wanted to find the words all the words that said this is one of the most beautiful stories I have read in a long time and I know I’ll read it again…probably more than once or I could share with you the review that I told my husband I wanted to write…it went something like this…

 

READ THIS BOOK, IF YOU READ NOTHING ELSE YOU NEED TO READ THIS F*ING BOOK. IT’S THE MOST BEAUTIFUL STORY I’VE READ IN I DON’T KNOW HOW LONG!!!

An ARC of ‘Dear Mona Lisa’ was graciously provided by the authors in exchange for an honest review.

The Truth Is a Cave in the Black Mountains (audio)
The Truth is a Cave in the Black Mountains CD: A Tale of Travel and Darkness with Pictures of All Kinds by Gaiman, Neil, Campbell, Eddie (2014) Audio CD - Neil, Campbell, Eddie Gaiman


I listened to this audio, read to me by Neil as a string quartet played in the background and the book was over before I knew it. I think the music helped set the tone for this novel and I really enjoyed both the music and listening to Neil read me his story. This novel reminded me of a fable or fairy tale as there seemed to be a moral in the story when it all was said and done. I enjoyed the simplicity of the story as the very small man makes his way to the Misty Isle to obtain gold in the cave. With the help of Calum MacInnes, the very small man finds his way to the Misty Isle, with a few short stops in-between. I liked the story of the cave and the ending again, reminded me of a fable. An adventurous conclusion with a message to be learned made this an enjoyable audio.
