M.K. Tod started my week off right when she published her review of Go Away Home on her blog A Writer of History. Mary was one of my advance reviewers and I was particularly interested in her opinion since she also writes about the World War One era.
Here’s how she starts her review:
From the very first chapter of Go Away Home, Carol Bodensteiner draws us into the central conflicts of her debut novel: old ways versus new, farm versus city, youth versus maturity, man versus woman.
The story flows with excellent dialogue and compelling descriptions, and each chapter ends with a hook that drives the plot forward.
I’m honored that Mary focused both on the story as well as the writing style.
