BOOK REVIEWS

Lumiana

At times hilarious, heartbreaking, and even frustrating (imperfect characters often make you want to throttle them), this story engages your heart and mind, and leaves you relieved by its gratifying end.
Lynn Turner
Author of Pas De Deux & Between You And Me
With a perfect combination of love, passion, music and social awareness, this book takes you on a delightful trip—going from the stages of grief and self-acceptance, through unconditional family love, trust, and jealousy.
