Smorgasbord Cafe and Bookstore Update – #Reviews – #Comingof age Bette. A. Stevens,#Biographical #Fiction Roz Morris, #Sci-fi Thorne Moore,


Welcome to the Friday edition of the Cafe and Bookstore with recent reviews for authors on the shelves.

The first review is for author and poet Bette A. Stevens and her coming of age novel Dog Bone Soup: A Boomer’s Journey

About the book

Whether or not You Grew Up in the 1950s and 60s, you’ll find DOG BONE SOUP (Historical Fiction) to be soup for the soul. In this coming-of-age novel, Shawn Daniels’s father is the town drunk. Shawn and his brother Willie are in charge of handling everything that needs to be done around the ramshackle place they call home—lugging in water for cooking and cleaning, splitting and stacking firewood…But when chores are done, these resourceful kids strike out on boundless adventures that don’t cost a dime. DOG BONE SOUP is the poignant tale of a dysfunctional family struggling to survive in America in the 50s and 60s, when others were living The American Dream.

One the recent reviews for Dog Bone Soup

Yvi MC VINE VOICE 4.0 out of 5 stars A story of resilience and hope  Reviewed in the United States on October 25, 2021

After reading the author’s short story, Pure Trash: The Story, I knew I wanted to read the whole novel, and I wasn’t disappointed. This story follows Shawn’s life in the 50s. His family is very poor because his abusive father spends all their money on alcohol. He was ridiculed at school for being the poor kid with a drunk dad. He was the oldest of four siblings and often found himself in the role of father. Still, he found moments to be just a kid again. This story follows Shawn through his journey to becoming a young man.

I loved this story. The author drew me right in with the character’s voice. The story is told in first person, which allows the reader to truly feel for Shawn’s predicament. Though I did not grow up in the 60s, I felt as if I were a part of it through the scenes in this story. There were a few typos, but they did not deter from the enjoyment of the story. I would highly recommend it to everyone I know. :-

The next author is Roz Morris for her novel Ever Rest: How far must you go to come back to life?

About the book

I almost regret this is not a true story, because I believed every word.’ Amazon reviewer
‘Highly captivating, highly unusual… one of the best novels to come out of Britain this year.’ Garry Craig Powell, author, Stoning The Devil

Twenty years ago, Hugo and Ash were on top of the world. As the acclaimed rock band Ashbirds they were poised for superstardom. Then Ash went missing, lost in a mountaineering accident, and the lives of Hugo and everyone around him were changed forever. Irrepressible, infuriating, mesmerizing Ash left a hole they could never hope to fill.

Two decades on, Ash’s fiancée Elza is still struggling to move on, her private grief outshone by the glare of publicity. The loss of such a rock icon is a worldwide tragedy.

Hugo is now a recluse in Nepal, shunning his old life. Robert, an ambitious session player, feels himself both blessed and cursed by his brief time with Ashbirds, unable to achieve recognition in his own right. While the Ashbirds legend burns brighter than ever, Elza, Hugo and Robert are as stranded as if they were the ones lost in the ice. How far must they go to come back to life?

A lyrical, page-turning novel in the tradition of Dear Edward by Ann Napolitano, Ever Rest asks how we carry on after catastrophic loss. It will also strike a chord with fans of Meg Wolitzer’s The Interestings and Taylor Jenkins Reid’s Daisy Jones for its people bonded by an unforgettable time; fans of Ann Patchett’s Bel Canto, for music as a primal and romantic force; and Jon Krakauer’s Into Thin Air for the deadly and irresistible wildernesses that surround our comfortable world.

One of the recent reviews for the book

Adele 4.0 out of 5 stars Gripping and compelling  Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 22 October 2021

Ever Rest is one of those stories that once you’ve read you wonder whether it was based on a true story. At times it felt like reading a memoir and at others it was like living in a ‘rock star’ bubble when anything and everything can happen.

Roz Morris has written an entertaining read that spans just over two decades as it follows the rise of a young budding rock band, Ashbirds, Ashten and Hugo met as two brooding teenagers living in a sleepy village in Sussex. Hugo soon worked out that Ash was very theatrical with his manner spouting words of enlightenment which were mostly words gleaned from well known lyrics and his artwork also complimented that of his rock gods. Hugo was the brains behind the band and preferred or accepted that Ash enjoyed the limelight.

The band enjoyed a first flush of success but to escape the craziness of the world they had joined Hugo and Ash took to climbing. Ash became hungry for more climbs and was almost giddy to climb Everest. Sadly, one climber was to return from Nepal and twenty years on the lives of those nearest and dearest to Ashten Geddard are still feeling like a shadow is weighing on them.

Elza was a shy, young dancer when she had been flung into the crazy rock world of Ashten Geddard. They’d only been a couple for a few months since the fateful accident but since that day she’s been portrayed in the media as the forlorn grieving widow. She’s often in the press when news of another body has been discovered bringing hopes of closure to a life she may not have chosen to stick around in.

Since the accident Hugo withdrew from the music world and spent his time learning about the mountains. When news of another body has been found on Everest speculation once again becomes rife that this time could be the moment that all their lives could begin to rest.

This is a story about people trying to deal with a monumental event that not only effected them but millions of strangers in love with the perceived persona of Ashten Geddard. There’s feelings of guilt, anger, betrayal, loss, grief. It was compelling reading full of the dark undertones of celebrity life that had you gripped to know what will happen next. There was also a warmth injected in the storyline bringing moments of light. A story that pulls you in and leaves you wondering about it’s storyline.

The next author is Thorne Moore with a review for Inside Out.

About the book

Triton station, Outer Circles headquarters of Ragnox Inc, on the moon of Neptune, is as far as the intrepid can go. It’s a place to make money, lots of money, and for seven lucky travellers, bound for Triton on the ISF Heloise, that’s exactly what they intend to do.

Maggy Jole wants to belong. Peter Selden wants to escape. Abigail Dieterman wants to be free. Merrit Burnand wants to start again. Christie Steen wants to forget. No one knows what David Rabiotti wants. And Smith, well, Smith wants everything.

Does it really matter what they want? The journey to Triton will take them eleven months – eleven months to contemplate the future, come to terms with the small print of their contracts, and wish they’d never signed. But changing their minds is not an option.

Sometimes it really is better to travel… than arrive.

One of the recent reviews for the book

Varda 5.0 out of 5 stars Really fun!  Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 21 October 2021

This was a very fun read! I enjoyed the character progression as the bunch of very different people journeyed into the unknown. That’s something I’ve always enjoyed in books by Thorne Moore – whether its psychological thriller, historical fiction, ~supernatural or sci-fi, their characters (good and bad) are always very well written, with a lot of depth. Very cool take on the future of space travel/settlement too (don’t want to say more in case I start on spoilers!). Good amounts of seriousness, scariness/thrill, humour and sci-fi. Looking forward to the next one!

Smorgasbord Cafe and Bookstore Update – #Reviews – #Fantasy M.J. Mallon, #Biographical #Fiction Roz Morris, #Poetry Robbie Cheadle


Welcome to the mid-week edition of the Cafe and Bookstore with recent reviews for authors on the shelves.

The first author is M.J. Mallon with a recent review for Bloodstone: The Curse of Time Book 1

About the book

Fifteen-year-old Amelina Scott lives in Cambridge with her dysfunctional family, a mysterious black cat, and an unusual girl who is imprisoned within the mirrors located in her house.

When an unexpected message arrives inviting her to visit the Crystal Cottage, she sets off on a forbidden path where she encounters Ryder: a charismatic, perplexing stranger.

With the help of a magical paint set and some crystal wizard stones, can Amelina discover the truth about her family?

A unique, imaginative mystery full of magic-wielding and dark elements, Bloodstone is a riveting adventure for anyone interested in fantasy, mythology or the world of the paranormal.

One of the recent reviews for the book

Amazon Customer 5.0 out of 5 stars A captivating multi-layered fantasy that, just might not be…  Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 21 August 2021

A captivating multi-layered fantasy that, just might not be…

Fantasy novels are not my thing, although I do read them every now and then to test if I have changed. It’s a bit live olives, I don’t like them, but you never know…

So, why did I read this book? The answer is simple, I know the author to be an accomplished poet and, I do so admire how a poet can distil a narrative in a descriptively succinct and engaging way. I was not disappointed and even at the start of every chapter there is a short verse, which I truly loved. I also like books that have a narrative stimulated by an external source and this book is, I understand, inspired by the Corpus Clock in Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, sometimes known as the Grasshopper clock – I looked it up and could see and imagine my own stories. (I’ve tried to add a pic).
However, my interpretation of Bloodstone might not be exactly as was intended by Mallon, but, this is how I read and enjoyed the book.

Amelina Scot, a 15 year old lives in a family home with what is described in the blurb as a dysfunctional family and, I can see why this might be seen as the case. In my mind though, I read this as a teenage girl, her body coursing with hormones, self-doubt, too many thoughts, too much angst, not least for her parents. Her father, now a mere shadow of his former self, no interest in anything and frequently on the missing list. And, mother, a worrier, for husband whom she no longer recognises, and a daughter she no longer understands and transposes this into displays of anger.

For me though, I saw this as depression and, a household depressed with no way out. The house is wracked with negative emotion and this is picked up on by Amelina, desperately looking for reasons why. A school friend went missing, where is she? Well, Amelina sees her trapped in the mirrors in the house and she converses with her lost friend. The cat, a muse? Certainly Amelina bestows feline special powers and it is all so real.

So, what is the answer? How can Amelina fix things, even her close friends seem distant as she becomes trapped in her imagination? An aunt gives her crystals and a paint set and, naturally, these offer Amelina a gift; to see as a seer, to paint as a manically possessed artist.

What follows is a wonderfully woven tale of heroes, villains, monsters, even the grasshopper, as time plays games with Amelina. So, regardless of how you understand the narrative, and no more plot spoilers, but I defy you not to become a tortured soul yourself; so read it. I am a slow reader, but it means I absorb so much and, maybe, I misinterpret, but Bloodstone is a novel that transports in mind, soul and spirit – 5 stars.

One of the recent reviews for the book

Ann S. Epstein 5.0 out of 5 stars Moving Past the Refrain of Loss  Reviewed in the United States on July 24, 2021

In Ever Rest, Roz Morris forges an unlikely alliance between rock climbing and rock music to create an absorbing novel about an outsized figure whose life shaped people’s identities and whose death leaves them hanging off a cliff, teetering over an emotional abyss, and grasping for an artistic foothold. Twenty years before the book opens, rock star Ash perished while he and his bandmate Hugo were climbing Mt. Everest. Ash’s body was never recovered, leaving his girlfriend Elza, Hugo, and another band member Robert, equally lost and bereft. Grief counselors use the term “ambiguous loss” to describe the absence of a loved one when there is no body to offer definitive proof they have died — they may have disappeared in a disaster, never come home from school, or not returned after running an errand.

The book’s central question is whether recovering Ash’s body will allow those who revolved around him to move past the refrain of his death to compose new verses for their own lives. As a fiction writer myself who balances multiple points of view (see my Amazon author page http://www.amazon.com/author/asewovenwords), I admired Morris’s deft blend of perspectives, which provide insight into those driven by their obsessions and the loved ones they in turn drive to anxiety and despair, exasperation and confusion. Her impeccable research into music-making music and mountaineering ground this soaring novel in both worlds. The memorable characters in Ever Rest will remain on readers’ playlists long after the book’s last peak is summited and its final note is sung.

Delighted to share the news of the recent poetry collection, Behind Closed Doors by Robbie Cheadle.

About the collection

What goes on behind closed doors: in the boardroom, after death, in the home, during lockdown, and in nature? This collection of poems, ranging from rhyming verse to twisted nursery rhymes, captures the emotions and thoughts people hide behind the masks they present to the world.

What thoughts are hidden
Behind her immobile face
Quite expressionless
Eyes cold and indifferent
Scrutinising me – hawk like

This book includes some of Robbie Cheadle’s spectacular fondant art and cakes.

One of the recent reviews for the book

Balroop Singh 5.0 out of 5 stars Realistic and magical  Reviewed in the United States on August 10, 2021

‘Behind Closed Doors’ by Robbie Cheadle is an assortment of various styles – haiku, tanka, haibun and free style of poetry that is realistic; it touches upon various facets of life and captures many emotions in a subtle manner. Having read her ‘Open a New Door,’ I am quite familiar with Robbie’s poetry but some of the poems in this collection left me spellbound!

Inspiring you to rise from “hot ashes” to face new challenges, develop a new perspective and “break your shackles” to reach the improbable, there are many poems dripping with such positivity. ‘Stars in Her Eyes’ brilliantly reveals her “glittering world” when she soars on the “gossamer wings, empowered by the hope to gather the “fairy dust.” Beautiful imagery! The metaphorical poems ‘Contrasting Colors’ and ‘A Fairy-tale Come True’ are superbly written.

‘He Walks Away’ took my heart away, as a mother’s pride and pain has been captured so well in this poem. I could relate to Robbie’s words:
“Her kiss is no longer wanted as he seeks the lips of the other. It’s heart-wrenching to let go…”

‘Can you see the Butterflies’ is another masterpiece, rich with imagery, impelling you to rush outside to watch the wonders of nature. Read this collection and find answers in “sweet dreams.” Such is the magic of poetry!

A selection of books for adults and children by Roberta Eaton Cheadle.

kerry baker 4.0 out of 5 stars A great collection  Reviewed in the United States on July 12, 2021

Lines by Leon: Poems, Prose, and Pictures by Leon Stevens is a great collection of work that touches on so many subjects. This isn’t the kind of book that I would usually read but I found myself really enjoying this one. It was easy to read and there genuinely seemed to be something for everyone in this. I liked how I could read this book in those few minutes that normally wouldn’t be long enough to read in – one of this collection was perfect for those snatches of time. I enjoyed this book much more than I expected and I will definitely check out more from this author in the future.

Meet Pamela Wight

Pamela Wight is a successful author of romantic suspense novels as well as two illustrated children’s book, BIRDS OF PARADISE and MOLLY FINDS HER PURR, enjoyed by readers ages 3 to 93.

Her first book, THE RIGHT WRONG MAN, got rave reviews for taking readers “on an exciting adventure with lots of intrigue, unexpected plot twists, and romance.” A year later, Wight published her second novel, TWIN DESIRES. “Lots of suspense, plot twists, romance, and excellent character development makes this a fun read!”

The gorgeously illustrated BIRDS OF PARADISE, finalist in the 2018 International Book Awards, has received many enthusiastic reviews: “This creative, compassionate story about birds will inspire children to notice the everyday adventures of backyard birds.”

Wight’s second picture book, MOLLY FINDS HER PURR, published Fall, 2019, follows Molly the Cat, who can’t find any friends. And almost worse, she can’t find her purr. After looking for friendship in all the wrong places, Molly learns that making friends is as easy as looking up in the trees and on the ground, where other lonely creatures are hiding in plain sight. Whether hard-shelled or soft as a bunny, everyone needs friendships that help them find their purr.

Pamela earned her Master’s in English from Drew University, continued with postgraduate work at UC Berkeley in publishing, and teaches creative writing classes in Boston and San Francisco.

She lives in the Boston area with her “right man” and hikes the New England trails while concocting her stories. Wight travels frequently to the San Francisco Bay area for additional inspiration. She speaks to book clubs, schools, and libraries in both locations.

One of the recent reviews for the book

“Flashes of Life” is a charming collection of real-life tales. Ms. Wight shares micro-stories that are broken into eight sections and come from all stages of her life. Each one is a quick read that touches on everyday life. I could relate to each story. I found myself shaking my head in agreement with some of these tales, and a couple had me laughing out loud. I appreciated the gratitude weaved in, and it left me pondering on my blessings. The well-crafted writing brought me into Ms. Wight’s world, and I felt like I was sitting next to her on the beach, talking about life. A fantastic glimpse into the world of a daughter, mother, wife, friend, and grandmother. I highly recommend reading about these “extraordinary ordinary” tales!

Meet Jane Buckley

Jane Buckley has been an avid reader all her life and if the opportunity had existed when she was younger would have loved to become a journalist. She began writing her first novel in 2017 but put the manuscript away in a drawer for a couple of years.
Jane used the lockdown period to finish the book – now ‘Stones Corner: Turmoil’ – and describes the writing experience as her ‘salvation’ during the pandemic.

Jane lives just outside Derry, Northern Ireland. She is married to John and has two daughters Cassie who lives in Oxford and Maggie who lives in Auckland NZ with grandchildren Charlie and Alba.

One of the recent reviews for the book on Goodreads

Jun 25, 2021 Siobhan Prendergast rated it five Stars

Jane has a wonderful way of writing, she gently guides the reader into the story and without realising when the transition happened you find yourself sitting alongside her characters or walking the streets of Derry city with them. Walking to the factory with the young Catholic Caitlín and her best friend, listening to them chat, I felt I was laughing with them. I cried too when on a much anticipated shopping trip one of young innocent girls were brutally injured by a bomb blast – an everyday occurrence.

The reality of life in Northern Ireland was brought home in the words of Jane Buckley as she led us through the Troubles of Derry City and the lives shattered by the conflict and war. How could we empathise with the handsome but privileged James, nephew of the factory owner – but yet, somehow, we do! We feel Caitlin’s youngful anticipation of first love through her dangerous liaison with the Scottish protestant James. We somehow understand how the youth can be cajoled or angered into uprise and violence. Above all we feel the joy and the utter heartbreak and devastation that the conflict has on all families and all of the individuals – no-one escapes unscathed.

A superbly constructed thriller, written in a style that is accessible to those of us who may never really understand what it is like to live in a war zone; the backdrop for their lives, it’s not extraordinary to them, it is, shockingly, their everyday lives. Stones Corner really makes this clear to the reader, despite the warzone, despite the bombings, the threat, the constant fear, these real people must live their lives.

This book transports us into the very shoes of the characters and allows us for a short time to walk in their shoes and hear their thoughts and feel their emotions.

A thriller with a lot of backbone and an enormous depth. It keeps the reader holding his breath to see what is going to happen next.

I loved it and I am so looking forward to the sequel. Thanks to Jane Buckley for Stones Corner. Read it!

One of the recent reviews for Ever Rest

The book works on so many levels for me. The storyline is strong and believable, and like others have stated, it seems so real. I have an acquaintance who’s partner never returned from a ski-ing holiday, and consequently, all the loss and confusion had added resonance.

The author clearly has a love of language, and uses words so cleverly; taking us back and forth through time and places. The relationships are intriguing. I cared about the characters, and wanted to know more about them – I wasn’t disappointed.

I rarely read books more than once, but with this one I intend to return and relax into it more; to soak up the spirit of the book, and to marvel at Ms Morris’ talent. I look forward to reading future books by her.
