5 Star Review

An Indie Review.

From the opening pages of “Bess’s Magical Garden” I knew it would be different from the books I’ve been reading lately and I was right! I loved how M.E. Hembroff writes in a way that has a more ‘classic’ feel, as opposed to modern day…she sets the scenes and characterizations in a skillful way that not only draws us right in, but creates great visualizations and elicits emotional investments. I truly cared about Bess’s life and her struggles to overcome not only her ill health, but losing her father and moving and leaving behind her best friend Megan as well. We get great insight into Bess’s mind with her letters and diary entries, and I was so happy with the ending. And great sketches too! Recommend for ages 10 and older. (5 stars)

Review for Bess’s Magical Garden

I thought this book was really quite lovely! Once I started reading I didn’t want to stop until I’d finished the whole thing, which is easy as it is fast paced and on the shorter side-perfect length to read in an evening. It pulls you in from the beginning as we get to know Bess and her difficult situation (with her health and losing her father), and I enjoyed the author’s “voice” and style of writing. It isn’t easy to write for a younger audience(in this case middle-grade/early teens) and also be interesting enough to make it appealing to adults, but I definitely think that the author M.E. Hembroff managed to pull it off wonderfully! There was beautiful energy and such great characters. The interweaving plot lines were well-crafted and not predictable, and although there were some minor grammatical and punctuation errors, it wasn’t anything that really bothered me. An uplifting children’s tale with a lovely message. I’d love to read more from this author in the future! (5 stars) This is an Indie review.

Zoe and Friends: One Strange Adventure…

Chris The Story Reading Ape's Blog

profile-pic_my-name-is-zoeHello Fans and Friends in the land of Zen! My name is Zoe and I write stories for your amusement. I hope you all enjoyed the holidays. Emily and I send you our warmest wishes for health and happiness in the coming New Year. Wait! Now that I’ve put that down on paper, it occurs to me: That’s the silliest sentiment ever, isn’t it? I mean, why wish good health and happiness for only a year? I guess one could argue that the wishes get renewed every year, and so an annual greeting is just dandy, but, think about it. What if I got hit by a truck tomorrow? Just sayin’ . . .

Alrighty then, enough of that. I better get on with this month’s story, which I’d like to tell in a slightly different way. Every now and then, I fancy myself a poet – you know, kind…
