    2. I received a free ARC of Calling by Joe Samuel Starnes from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review The publisher of this book, Open Road Media , caught my attention these past few months because of the high quality of new books they are publishing as well as the republication of some iconic past authors whose work should not be forgotten.It has been my experience in going to the doctor s office, and yes, even on a bus, that someone who is lonely or just simply obnoxious, will get the seat ne [...]

    6. I find quite difficult to make a judgment on this book It s well written, has a captivating storyline, the interaction and the parallelism between the two protagonists is almost perfect, yet I can not give than 3 stars.One of the two main characters is kind of a fallen angel Protestant pastor for most of his life, a preacher of good level, possesses a kind of original sin, which is the legacy of his father, in turn preacher, but womanizer and violent Once broken hisbanks, in turn, become a woma [...]
