Midwest Book Review Endorses and Praises Finding Emmaus

Each year, the Midwest Book Review receives approximately 18,000 submissions.

I am thrilled to be able to tell you that on September 8th I received notification from James A. Cox, its editor-in-chief, that my debut novel, “Finding Emmaus” was just chosen to be reviewed and enthusiastically endorsed by this prestigious organization.

This is what they had to say:

Empathy is within us all, but some feel it stronger than others. “Finding Emmaus” is the first book for the Lodestarre series, a historical fantasy telling a story of two Empaths who live three hundred years apart whose talents are written off as mental illness. Through this gap, the two Empaths seek to understand their talents and what they mean, even when society snubs them.

“Finding Emmaus” is a thoughtful and fascinating read and take on society through fantasy. Highly recommended.

Their publication, known as Book Watch will feature “Finding Emmaus” in their 2010 issue. Additionally, “Finding Emmaus” will also appear in the Cengage Learning, Gale interactive CD-ROM series "Book Review Index" (published four times yearly for academic, corporate and public library systems), as well as the book review databases LexisNexis and Goliath.

They will also be posting their review on Amazon.com.

This is just such an honor — I’m over the moon about it!!
