“Despite being a sequel, Ron Kearse’s JUST OUTSIDE OF HOPE can be read perfectly well on its own. It is a quick, sensitivity (sic) written and engaging read.”

“Kearse writes with sensitivity, making emotionally charged moments feel raw and palpable using spare prose to heighten the effect. He also employs real and important events to remind the reader of the time that the story is set in.”
