Title: And The Whippoorwill Sang
Author: Micki Peluso
Publisher: LSP Digital, LLC
Review: I recently read Micki’s interview on another website, and I purchased the kindle version that evening. I’ve followed her blog over a year, and I thought that I had a feel for her writing style.
Memoirs are not one of my usual genre, but I found the account of Micki’s life humorous at times, and laughed out loud. I also had to find a box of tissues to keep at hand.
It is amazing to read the hope, faith and courage this author maintained through the tragic loss of a child. This is a story that should be required for every driver who has a drink and gets behind the wheel, or those who pilot vehicles of death wile texting. There are a multitude of distracted and impaired driver offences that contribute to the early passing of beautiful young people, like Micki’s fourteen-year-old daughter.
“And the Whippoorwill Sang” is an emotional read with many up and downs, as well as twists and turns that rival a winding mountain road. I found myself getting angry on the author’s behalf, chuckling, or out right laughing at her antics, Lucile Ball could have played Micki.
As a mother, indeed a human being, I felt her heartache and sense of loss.
Not a quick read, but well worth a readers time. I found a lot of formatting issues on the kindle version, but the story is well written and I highly recommend it.
