Independently publishing authors have trouble getting their works noticed. Many wonderfully talented authors have books available which can't be found in brick and mortar stores and are difficult to find on Amazon, bn.com, iBookstore, etc. The traditionally published titles can be pre-ordered and have reviews posted by the time they are released. Indie authors don't have these privileges. So when I was asked to read and review Fields of the Fatherless by Elaine Marie Cooper so when the book was released it would have enough reviews to get it noticed I said yes.
I was impressed with her single point of view in the daughter, Betsy. She went through the gamete of emotions very realistically in my opinion. So as not to spoil your enjoyment I won't outline the events which occur.
This book would be appropriate reading for strong readers from junior high age up even to any age adult.
I received an advance copy of this novel from the author for an honest review.
The book is available in Kindle and print on Amazon.
