***** Beautifully written story with fascinating characters and exotic locales, by syleclair, Sept. 28, 2014
If you like music, history, world travel and romance, you will enjoy this book. Written in a poetic, ethereal style, "Strum" is a beautifully crafted tale of multicultural family, passion, love and loss across generations and continents. The settings are described in eloquent detail and the characters are so well developed you can almost feel their passion and pain. This book would make a great movie! I'm looking forward to a sequel or more novels from this author.

***** Travel the world and fall in love with the characters of this book!
(By Heather B, Sep27, 2014
I love this book! The descriptive writing style is reminiscent of Allende and Marquez. This story keeps the reader engaged, with an interesting flow that doesn't reveal the complete picture until the very end. This is one of my favorite books--and I've read a lot! I look forward to giving this book to family and friends and gifts.Strum
