Smashwords book reviews by DarrynStephens

  • Lovers Lies and Lilies Part One on April 26, 2015

    Sarah was such a responsible woman and helped as she was able to free a friend from threat of murder. I cannot imagine anyone giving a sorted review of the heroism and nurturing of a previously victimized woman by saying she was a bully. Fighting fire with fire is sometime the only way to succeed. I loved the story. I was engrossed in the sexual awakening for Sarah and her emotional development. I have two more of Ronald books to read and am truly anticipating the one titled Joshua in the saga of the Crammer family. Wonderful writing.
  • Mutual Transitions on April 28, 2015

    I know things happen like the author describes in the book and bad things are done to good people but it is hard to imagine it happening to a famous person and be a witness to a life being torn apart and the battle to reconstruct his life and relationships with family and having friends turn their back to the victim as if he is a criminal. I was appalled when reading about the actions taken against Wilson and learning the part played by loved ones in his life, even betrayal. I was taken with the characters and especially Buzzard. Will there be a novel written about his life? This was a very relaxing and enjoyable time for me.
  • Jewella Crossing on April 28, 2015

    Jewella Crossing follows Joshua's Way in the saga of the Crammer family. Such insight by Ronald in the way people lived and flourished in those days even with so little. To build as the pioneers did is remarkable. To write about it with such precision is also remarkable. Cannot wait for Joshua to be made available. Way to go Ronald. Keep them coming.
  • Joshua's Way on April 28, 2015

    The book took me back into the tangled web of Spanish deceit by Napoleon and the political trauma and suffering of the Spanish people. Then into the frontier days of early America. It is amazing how the people survived back then, with almost nothing and money buying so little because almost nothing was available for the common man. Pulling myself away from those thoughts I relived Joshua's capture and finally freedom. Great book by a great writer.
