Journey of an American Son by John Hazen

This book is more than it appears to be. Although there is intrigue right from the start, the story appears to be a nice tale of a family in the early 1900s. It is that, but it also tackles racism and prejudice. It deals with family love and connecti ...more

Dear Dad is an unexpected, powerful novel. It may appear to be about the horrors of war—and it is, but it’s also about the unsung heroes and the villains (who shouldn’t be). It may appear to be about time travel—and it is, but it’s not a science fict ...more

Funny, quirky, and full of surprises!
This is not your typical story. It's a tale with wonderful twists along that way, but one that never takes itself too seriously. I found myself liking the characters simply because they are soooo self-absorbed and

This book was a pleasant yarn - an epic tale of one man's life and how it intertwines with history and a local legend. The story-telling was beautifully done with characters both rich and real. It concludes nicely with many threads being brought toge ...more

Well-written, poignant, gut-wrenching story

This is a beautifully written story with many metaphors and similes that add richness to the prose (for example, a woman is described "... with hair like a puppy that naps across her shoulders"). The story i

“I’m not sure which came first, the phone call or the sense of being strangled in my sleep. The choking sensation, as if all breathing on my part must cease, is still vivid in my mind. The feeling engulfs me and I am lying in bed all over again. I feel my throat constricting, intense pressure bearing down on me that I cannot escape. I push away at nothing. I flail and scream, but no sound escapes as my throat is squeezed shut, not by some actual physical hands clasped around my neck but from some nameless danger lurking just as real around me. I gasp for air, seeking somehow to gulp in one long breath that might see me through until I can breathe again. But that breath won’t come, and I feel certain that I will perish in an instant, without even a cry on my part.”
