What My Neighbors Have to Say

Two Interesting Reviews


I recently sold two copies of THE SILENT STEPS OF GRACE to two people in my neighborhood. One is a retired business woman who made a fortune in real estate after emigrating to America from Poland. The other is a retired cosmetic surgeon who had a hugely successful practice in Washington DC. Politicians are as vain as actors. This is what my neighbor woman had to say about the novel. “I read all the time. When I start a book I’ll read it all day until I finish it. Your book is different. I read it slowly because I never want to finish it. You have no idea how much I have underlined it. This is the greatest book I have ever read. You deserve a Nobel Prize for this. What an imagination. Where did you get such a story? Please hurry up and write the next one.” And then the kicker. “Are you sure you wrote it?” And my answer. “Every word.”

The cosmetic surgeon just started reading it the other day. Yesterday morning when I was walking my dog by his house he saw me and came running out. “Alan, I’ve read the first 58 pages of your book. It’s wonderful! Where did you ever get this idea? Where did it come from?” A couple of hours later he texted me. “Every few pages I start to cry. This book is not about me, but it is about me.”

That’s the magic of a good story. It’s not about you, but it is. You can relate to it. A great theme is universal and will impact your life. If you’re looking for a good summer read that will uplift, motivate, and elevate you here it is!

Incidentally, I don’t need a Nobel Prize, although that would be nice. The New York Times bestseller list and a movie deal would suffice.
