What the critics are saying about Muted Grey
I was gripped-- from the very first page. A heartbreaking tale which had me crying without shame with a box full of tissues. A real tear jerker!
--A brilliant read . . . This book really hits the nail!
Dianna young is a very talented author who has written a very meaningful book that goes beyond fantasy and deals with real-life issues. This is a story every woman should read. It left me profoundly moved and informed.
About half way through the book, the "lights turned on" and I realized where the story was going and what was happening to each of the people I had been reading about. In the end, Ms. Young ties all of it together with a powerful message of hope even in the midst of regret.
I was quite moved by its content and I would recommend reading this powerful little book about how lives can be changed . . .
Thought-provoking --a must read. I challenge you to read this book and give some thought to the author's message.
--I was so mesmerized I could not put it down. The author introduces a new character in each chapter. At first I found it a bit perplexing. I soon realized there was a thread that would tie them all together. The plot takes a surprising twist about three quarters of the way through. This is a very thought provoking book. The size of this book prevents me from sharing a hint as to what happens in this tale. I do not want to ruin this real treat for other readers. I do know that the subject matter will not leave for a long time after you close the book. This book is a must read.
