November 27, 2010 at 2:28pm Book Review by Dona B. Shelton-Wiggins Hey Ron, I just finished a blended family. I finished Mount Misery on Tuesday. I loved the trip down memory lane, some of the names and things made me weep, but it was a good weep for they are memories that no one can touch. It was a very good book and I am glad you have become the successful man that you are. Now on to a blended family.. oohhh I wanted to choke the life out of Charles Jr. and his Momma. I loved that novel as well. I couldnt stand Wanda and her momma wanted to beat them as well. I loved Edgar & his family. I especially enjoyed how you paid homage to Papa Wongs as the Chinese restaurant. Keep up the good work. And may God continue to bless you...whew....love ya Book Review by Dana Doggett wrote on your timeline. Ron, Just finished reading your book Blended A Family Story.
