“A harrowing tale of abuse and addiction, told in a beautiful way that will touch your heart. This book was very emotional, very driven…” Kelly Smith Reviews
“I was not expecting the level of emotional intensity that this novel achieves. Taking on Water is a horrific theater of human nature. And it begins with James.” The Coffee Pot Review
