Smashwords book reviews by R.S. Guthrie

  • A Foreigner in London on March 24, 2013

    Cinta Garcia is as eloquent and deeply moving writer as any I've ever read. I had the pleasure of reading this short story when in its infancy and I must say it has matured to adulthood and left the nest so very profoundly and justifiably. It hardly reads the same; I new the story (given Ms. Garcia's enormity of talent) could be amazing, but she has taken it beyond my highest hopes. Stunningly moving. Short to the point of perfection. A dollar to read this short story is to spend a pittance on a deep massage for the heart and soul. Brava, Ms. Garcia. You are a writer with whom to be reckoned.
