  • Where Sheep May Safely Graze on Jan. 18, 2010

    From the first page I found this writing beautiful and captivating. Roger Parkinson is the very best kind of gentle, humorous and interesting story teller, and this short collection is a real treat. Also there is good variety here so that although the pace of the collection is consistent and easy on the reader, the writing draws you seamlessly from one mood to another. Great visual imagery, great voice . . . more please. PRD

    This is great story telling and packed with detail. I find some of it a little wordy but the details are rich and the characters live and have their own voices. Thanks Laurel . . . now, which of your works shall I enjoy next . . . ?
