TMSS: The Power of the Cultural Matriarch, July 30, 2013
This novel is truly a challenging read on many levels. Each vivid character
is faced with a highly emotional life situation that threatens his/her cultural
traditions and social standing. Just as we begin to fear that the central
characters cannot possibly get their lives on the right track and the threat of
suicide is ever present, the true power of the cultural matriarch comes to light
each and every path. The honor of editing this novel for Cyberwit was mine, and
the author is truly a skilled writer with engaging philosophical insights.
Definitely a 5-star rating on this one, and I look forward to his next novel.
