John Scharf I just started this book and I'm already drawn into this world of logging and deep sense of loss.

cameron The love stories in this book came as such a surprise. As usual I had to trust you to take me somewhere I've never been before and you did. Thank you for your writing it. You are now redeemed for, In One Person.

Your books brought my estranged brother and me back together over a period of years. We shared little else but books and our excitement and long discussions over yours were memorable. He's gone now, but I think of him every time I read you.

SmartHealthInsuranceDOTcom First book from J.I.
The characters are engaging but I gotta say,before I'd be on the run for 50 years, I think the constable would be the one getting clipped.
