Where You Are by J.H. Trumble
"As with the case in "Between Us," J.H. Trumble again gives us a well told coming of age story. However, as with the case with "Between Us," there are multiple layers of story and life to "Where You Are's" characters. The basic premise is young man..." Read more of this review »
Just Between Us by J.H. Trumble
"I thought that this was a great book. It shows how love will always prevail in the end. Even when multiple problems arose in Luke's and Curtis' relationship, it was always solved in the end."
Just Between Us by J.H. Trumble
"This had me hooked from the start. I really liked how things were handled in this book and that things weren't all sugarcoated or perfect. I would have liked a little longer ending."

“I’ll never understand why some people can’t just let others live their lives, you know,” Danial said. “You don’t have to understand. You don’t have to agree. Just leave people alone. When I look at the moon and planets and stars, all that narrow-mindedness and hate seem so petty. The universe is such a big place. One hundred thousand light years just from one end of the Milky Way to the other. One hundred. Thousand. Light years. In the time it’s taken for light to travel from one end of our galaxy to the other, thousands of generations have passed. It really makes you realize how small we are, doesn’t it? How short our time on earth is.”
J.H. Trumble, Don't Let Me Go

“Our nights were filled with passion and long soft gazes and sweet words. We weren't behaving ourselves, and we didn't for one moment feel guilty about that.”
J.H. Trumble, Don't Let Me Go

“I think she's afraid to even hug me now. It's my fault, but I miss it, Andrew. I miss it so much it aches sometimes, you know?'

I do know. I do know, I want to tell him, but I let him talk. And he does, with a gut-wrenching honesty that tears at my heart.

'I want to be held. Is that so wrong? I want to be held, and stroked. I want to know that someone loves me. I want to feel it on my skin.' He looks at the ceiling and exhales, then meets my eyes again. 'But nobody touches me anymore. Not even when I have a fever. Mom just hands me a thermometer now.' He drops his eyes and his ears redden. 'Even when you kiss me, you don't touch me. It's like I'm a leper or something. I can hardly keep my hands off of you, but it's not the same for you, is it?”
J.H. Trumble, Where You Are

“But surely even heroes weary lugging around the burdens of their heroism.”
J.H. Trumble, Don't Let Me Go

“Writing a novel is a terrible experience, during which the hair often falls out and the teeth decay. I'm always irritated by people who imply that writing fiction is an escape from reality. It is a plunge into reality and it's very shocking to the system.”
Flannery O'Connor, Mystery and Manners: Occasional Prose
