5-Star Review for A Door Unlocked

Tammy Dewhirst at Rabid Readers, an on-line book review blog, offers her opinion on A Door Unlocked:
There are many great first lines in the history of literature and in the future when people compile those lists they will include the first line of “A Door Unlocked” by Calvin Dean. “Bobby Ray’s attitude burned as hot as a Mississippi summer.”
As the author of A Door Unlocked, I struggled with a particular scene. Was it too much? Too inappropriate? Here's what Rabid Readers had to say:
After the assault on little Lydia, the child wishes for death. Her parents are gone and this man who said that he would not hurt her has done so in a way worse than she could have imagined. That handful of lines in the aftermath of Lydia’s abduction just kills me as a reader but stands as a testament to the talent of the author.
I'm glad I made the decision to include 'Lydia's Prayer'.

Here's the bottom line: Rabid Readers granted 5-Stars to A Door Unlocked. Want to read the entire review? Click the link and you'll be taken to Tammy Dewhirst's Rabid Readers blog.
