Random Placement, Review

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
A good first novel by this author.  A young single mom receives an incredible amount of money from a stranger and she embarks on a remarkable trip to find out why.  The author built the plot with the skillful use of jumping back in time and returning to the present, carefully unravelling the story and keeping the readers interest. The characters were well developed and again the author maintained the reader's interest by progressively unveiling more of the character's personality through the novel.   One of the aspects that I enjoyed about the book is that it is not a syrupy romance, although it had a bit of a romantic element build through the story.

What the author has really done with this book, and I hope will prove helpful, is to bring to light the terrible circumstances of the plight of young girls that are sold into the brutal life of a Jogini.  Hopefully a greater awareness of this practice will help to eventually stop it.      


  1. Hi!

    So. What's your beer preference? I gotta know what to bring to our rotating-skunk adventure.

    1. Diet coke. Can't drink anything it gives me a headache. Alas my beers are purely metaphorical, however if I could drink it would be Yuengling.

      Good God that cracked me up. Like I said I was going to behave myself and not comment, and when I read your comment, I thought what the hell.

      Should we invite Stephen and then beat the crap out of him for being such an idealist? At least make him sit with the skunks.

      I checked out your Blog, quite visual, a riot of graphics. I liked the Handly quote about lagoon water. Of course I would like that quote. BTW you wouldn't be one of those women with a fourth cone would you, a tetrachromat? Judging from your blog, a fourth cone could be quite handy.

      Thanks for dropping by and commenting, and thanks for following my blog. Oh yes and thanks for making my day over at Jo's.
