A Book Review! by DL Larson

I'm nearly through my 12 week blog book tour. I've answered interview questions, given character interviews and told family secrets all the while sharing the story of my book, Promises My Love.

This week I received a review from 'My Devotional Thoughts.' Hopefully the link below will take you to the site and you can read the review for yourself. She gave me a 4 star rating and stated what I have been worried about since publishing this book. As a series there is only so much I can do to help the reader comprehend what happened in the previous book. She confessed there were parts she did not understand and I value her honesty. But a series is a series and not a repeat of the book before. I only hope not knowing the whole story may have readers going back to read the first one.

In a nutshell, just in case this address does not take you to My Devotional Thoughts, the reviewer stated ... this is not a simple book to review. This is an extremely complicated book with much depth, pathos, and true family grit. ... this story truly touched my heart and reminded me of what is important in families and life. ...the author does an excellent job at illustrating her point through an amazing story of family, tragedy and true love.

A series is definitely tricky because each book does need to stand on its own, yet you want the reader to feel connected to the stories that have come before.

Kudos on a great review! Four stars is terrific, and she had some really great things to say about your book. Way to go!
