REPLAY OF THURSDAY, JULY 30TH STOP!

I Hero by Jason Zandri

BOOK BLURB:

An everyday man, living less than ordinary life in New York City, simply makes his way about his work life and one at home. A kind heart and an empathetic soul, who tended to think of others before he thought of himself.

With his childhood totally left behind and gone with the final resting of his father, Nathan has come to terms with his past as he forges his life in the present, unaware of what lies ahead.

An unlikely friendship, a random act of violence, a budding romance, all part of a life changed.

As Life Goes by Jason Zandri

BOOK BLURB:

Mark Sanford returns to his hometown with his son Matthew in tow to rebuild their lives. Recently divorced, and with the mother totally abandoning her parental responsibilities, both father and son are beginning their fresh start together.

Matthew begins to make new friends in the neighborhood and at school while he tries to find his place among people that have been friends with one another for years at elementary school.

Mark takes over the reins of the former family corner store with the help of a young woman looking for work. The ability to love and trust that woman entering his life is difficult for him because of all he has lost. For Matthew, that “first love” is difficult to understand without a motherly influence and with a father that has been deeply hurt.

BOOK BLURB:

David Stephenson is a kind drifter who comes to settle in the small Texas town of Westville. His sense, empathy, and awareness are well received by the residents of the failing town as they welcome and befriend him. During his stay he helps a small local girl try to realize her dream and while doing so excites and energizes the whole town to help out. Lives change as fate takes a critical turn. The local would-be reporter, tasked by David’s longtime friend, takes off on a mission to unravel the mystery of his travels, where he came from, and discovers why he is on his journey.

NONNIE JULES’ REVIEW OF “ANOTHER SUNSET”:  5***** Star!!!

This story had me confused in the beginning.  I felt there were too many characters introduced too soon, and I was getting them all mixed up, especially with David and Peter Dempsey, and then with Caroline and Charlotte.   I couldn’t remember who was the passenger and who was the truck driver, and then I couldn’t remember which was the child and which was the elderly woman (that confusion very well could have been my own mind, mind you).  After having read the first two chapters twice, I began to force myself to focus better.  Then, I got it!  It all clicked!  I was so moved by this story-line, which was filled with comedy at times, sadness at times, frustration (if you’ve read this already, think David letting Su Ann have it!), then it all leveling out into a marvelously joyous read.  I mean, how many people are there in this world like David?  He made me want to be better, kinder and more generous.  Anytime an author can evoke those feelings inside of you, the reader, HE/SHE is damn good! My original review rating was going to be a 4 star because I found that there were many occasions where punctuation was needed, yet there was none.  For it to be a fluid read for me, I need yellow lights, red lights and green lights guiding my drive…and although not very often, I am guilty of this crime, too. (The good thing about that, is the author, Jason Zandri can fix those minor hiccups in no time!).  With all that said, by the time I had rounded the final bend of this tale, I was so wrapped up in this AWESOME story, this wonderfully crafted story, that ANOTHER SUNSET gets a 5 star rating from me!   Now, let me say what I know you came here to hear…you DO want to read this book and you DO want to read it right away.  The story was better than good, and Mr. Zandri, you have just garnered yourself a new fan!   I hope to see this book as a Rave Reviews Book Club “Book of the Month” selection in the very near future because I know ALL will enjoy it!  And if you are a follower of my reviews, you know I don’t say that very often.  Only when it’s true!

    • Thanks Beem; I’ll take 100K of that “best wishes.” I’d like to work to a larger number “for the next one” and that way too I can share out the 900K with all of my peers 🙂

    • Thanks for visiting Bob. I agree with you; it’s like one of my sayings “If you can’t find enough good people then decide to be one yourself”

      A lot of the problem with the world today is everyone is doing something for some “reward.” What most people misunderstand is the fact that the effort of making something better than it was when you came across it, or offering a helping hand to someone that needs and deserves it, is the reward itself.

  4. Thank you Nonnie for this review from a few months back and for the highest rating as well as for the critical feed back.

    ” I found that there were many occasions where punctuation was needed, yet there was none.

(The good thing about that, is the author, Jason Zandri can fix those minor hiccups in no time!”

    And I did – I sent the work back through another edit process and I am certain we have the version now available as a Kindle read all addressed.
