Review: Keeper of the Doves

User Review  - Emilie - Goodreads

This book was very well written and had a wonderful premise. It started so well and was so promising that it's ending landed with a decided thud. The sum of this novel feels like only the first half ... Read full review

This is a beautifully written book about Amie McBee (short for Amen), her family, and Mr. Tominski, a recluse who lives on the far end of the family's property. The words themselves are very simple ... Read full review

User Review  - Nicole - Goodreads

I thought the story was too short. I would have liked to see it have more depth, last longer, cover more of Amen's life. I have to admit, the Bella's were my favorite. "E, E, E" cracked me up over and over again. Silly I know, but the mental visual was hilarious. Read full review

User Review  - Josh Meek - Goodreads
