It’s always exciting to have an unexpected review pop up in my e-mails. Here’s the surprise of the day from Story Circle Book Reviews.
An excerpt from the Story Circle review of Rim to Rim:
“The book’s characters, who besides the villains and protagonist, include a dewy-eyed young woman, a seasoned Grand Canyon ranger, and an experienced lesbian backpacker, all rang true. I have met real people, like the fictional ones who hiked through the pages of Meeks’ book, many times in real life. And in the end, as good mysteries should do, all the loose ends tossed out in Rim To Rim were tied up in the final chapter in Agatha Christie fashion.”

I am impressed by the Story Circle Network’s mission statement:
The Story Circle Network is dedicated to helping women share the stories of their lives and to raising public awareness of the importance of women’s personal histories. We carry out our mission through publications, a website, classes, workshops, writing and reading circles, and woman-focused programs. Our activities empower women to tell their stories, discover their identities through their stories, and choose to be the authors of their own lives.
And the Story Circle reviewer, Pat Bean, liked my novel. Not bad.
