Desert Sundays takes place in the rural town of Lunden, Arizona. It's a small place where everyone knows everyone and everyone talks. Three characters arrive over a period of about three years, each of them rather misfits in their former lives and each looking to find some missing piece of a puzzle to help them pull their lives into something true, something that will give them a sense of peace and self-worth.
The first to arrive is Joseph, 28, a former teacher has been brought up by his aunt

In Desert Sundays author William T. Goodman gives his readers what amounts to a meditation of love, life, sacrifice, loyalty and selflessness through his memorable characters and strong sense of place.

All three are products of their troubled pasts, and each in their own way is deeply flawed as ...more

Desert Sundays by William T. Goodman I received a free kindle copy of Desert Sundays by William T. Goodman, published by Oak Lee Publishing from NetGalley in exchange for a fair review.

I gave this richly written debut novel four stars. Sadly, grammatical errors cost it a star. I found too many times that 'taught' was used that should have been 'taut'. There were others but that's the one that I found distracting.

The characters were beautifully fleshed & easy to like. It was an enchanting vi

This was a debut novel from the author. I requested a copy of this book, not on Goodreads, but another site. I was interested in the description of the book, but it didn't live up to it's promise. The book follows three troubled souls that meet in a desert community in Arizona. I had great difficulty reading this book, in particular because the whole book seemed to be a conversation. A conversation with anyone and everyone. The whole story took place in dialogue. I've never read a book like ...more
