`Hope, perseverance, and a leap of faith'

Andrew Galasetti is an amazing lad. His first novel is not only immensely touching and well executed, but his own life to date, when married with the story line of THESE COLORS DON'T RUN', makes this a book for everyone to read for so many reasons. His stand on living in the now and continuing to pursue his dreams and in doing so, encourage others to follow is so very well summarized n a statement he has made that it deserves sharing in fragme

I will be completely honest and admit up front that this book is not one I would have likely picked up and read on my own. But I have been introduced to a number of indie authors and their work through my Facebook association with best selling author, Hugh Howey. After participating in a thoughtful discussion with Mr. Galasetti and others on one of Hugh's posts, he offered to send me a copy of this book for free. Knowing that every penny counts to an indie author, I politely declined but immedia ...more

Okay, so this little gem has been sitting patiently in our "To Review" queue for over twelve months! (Authors requesting reviews, please note that review times do vary) I was a little wary going in as I had put up all sorts of barriers in my head. Slavery is one of those issues that still disturbs me, and I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to "cope" with the book. Or whether or not, it was just going to be too "heavy" for me.

First up, this is a very SHORT book and is, therefore,

I received this book from the author through the Goodreads giveaway. It was a great story and a quick read. Many times, books like this can be long and drawn out, but not this one. The story was told in little snippets, but yet it was a complete story and focused on the important details. There was only one part that I wasn't sure about and that was the ending. I'm still not quite sure exactly what happened, but I am continuing to think about it. Overall, it was a good story.

What an accomplishment! My review comes from being a reader of historical fiction and professor of literature. I find this book to be poignant examination of universal themes and a respectful memorial to US slavery and its slaves.
A writer to watch!
