“These are short stories but there is a lot of story in each one. They are well told and I enjoyed every one. I will be buying more McKinstry books.” – Review on Amazon

“If you enjoy a book for sake of an interesting story, this book is for you. If you enjoy a story for sake of how well it’s written, this book is even more so for you. F.T. McKinstry writes in a way that involves all the senses. It’s not something I read line by line, but sensation by sensation. Highly recommended.” – Review on Barnes and Noble
