COMFORT: School Library Journal Review
Nothing like opening the email and finding a positive review! I won't paste the entire School Library Journal review here because it contains major spoilers! But please indulge me while I lift out a few key sentences.
The continuation of this determined protagonist's story is even richer than the first installment.
While readers of BLUE will be instantly drawn into this sequel, COMFORT stands alone, and newcomers will find much to appreciate in Ann Fay's attempts to come to terms with the confusion around her. Hostetter's beautiful story about rebuilding, with absorbing back matter about post-traumatic stress disorder and disability rights, is exceptional historical fiction.
It was a good email sort of day!
