  • A definite read; most enjoyable!

    Ms. Williams’ writes from the heart, in a most sincere and caring manner. Her depiction of “family” made me understand how ultra important the family unit truly is and always will be. Tanya’s writing style flows beautifully allowing the reader to become a part of the Smith family. Several parts can be similar to our own situation yet others make one realize that we can be thankful not to be going down the road that the Smith clan is venturing down. I highly recommend this easy to read and thoroughly enjoyable book.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • High Emotions!!!

    This book was an emotional roller coaster! John Smith is a man who just lost his loving, kind hearted, beautiful wife during childbirth of their second child. This left him with a newborn (Jarred) and a toddler (Calla). Not only that...he came back from the war wounded with depression. The story starts out in 1949 and follows John and his family throughout his life (into his 80's). After the death of his wife, Violet, John marries again, to Bernice. Bernice is the quintessential step-MONSTER! She is a hateful, lazy, lying, self absorbed b***h! In addition to Calla and Jarred, his first two children with Violet, he has three more sons with Bernice. Many times throughout this story I was so, SO angry with John! Why would a man stay in such a toxic relationship with someone so vile? I just couldn't understand, nor grasp his reasoning! However, after pondering his situation and thinking about the timeline...divorce wasn't often done in those times, and if it was the courts often sided with the mother on custody. How could John leave those kids with Bernice? This is MY line of thinking, right or wrong (emotional roller coaster!). With that said, I felt like John could have taken a stronger stance in defending his children! I was often so angry and thought him spineless! The story has a lot of emotional negativity and sadness, but there is a thread of hope, happiness and forgiveness, as well. I always feel if an author can evoke such strong emotions about the characters or story with her words, that is a book worth reading! This is the third in a trilogy, but it stands alone. I'm invested and will have to put the others on my TBR list...I HAVE TO KNOW what poison Bernice drank to make her the maniacal witch she was throughout her lifetime! Thank you Tanya Williams, for reaching out to me to read this book. It will stay with me and my thoughts for some time. *4 Stars*

  • A heart-wrenching truth for so many families.

    Tanya has brought me into a family that starts as so many ideal young love stories began, then war was added to the story. Throughout the first two books we learned what was desired from John, but not till he was trying to move past his deep loss and his desire to the right thing we learn of the consequences of his war torn heart..and how it affected not just him. More than one time during the ready heart was torn between grief and frustration for him, and also wanting to smack some sense in either John or the crazy woman Violet. My heart aches and grieves for the precious relationships between father and daughter, hoping for at least long term forgiveness to part of the this family's legacy.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A Man Called Smith

    This poignantly written novel is guaranteed to ellicit a miriad of strong emotions on the readers part. It's a classic Cinderella story. The reader is propelled heartbreakingly forward inch by inch until finally he/she is released of pent up emotions when finally justice is served. Tanya E. Williams is truly a gifted writer who holds the reader's attention with every thought she commits to paper.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Great Summer Reading.

    I enjoyed reading this book. Found it terribly frustrating at times when I wanted to shake some of the characters to make them see ... It is a good work on how different people see things a different way. A study on blind tolerance I guess. A nice read that is well written.

    Thanks for your feedback!
