I just came across a treasure trove, a compilation of reader reviews of My Cousin the Saint on one web site. About a dozen of them. There’s nothing better for a writer than to see how his or her story has resonated with readers.
Alas, the link is no longer live, but here’s an excerpt from one: “When a friend suggested that I read My Cousin The Saint, I hesitated for many reasons….I am not Catholic, I expected the book to be a boring tale of a religion that doesn’t necessarily interest me and I was raised in a secular home. My friend persisted and I am so grateful to her. By page 2, I was hooked…..and my interest continued all the way into the epilogue. Justin Catanoso writes about a quest that could just as easily be mine..in another country with different characters.”
My book, by the way, can be purchased inexpensively at many online retailers, particularly www.amazon.com
