Praise for the Novel

Reviews of The Struggle Within

After reading The Struggle Within I wished I was part of a book club to be able to discuss it with others. Fast paced and with distinct characters, the novel shows the chaos inside of a prison riot as well as the drama occurring outside as law enforcement tries to end it. Beth, a female prison counselor who had inadvertently inspired the inmates to revolt, becomes the best hope to negotiate a truce. I stayed up late, turning pages, wanting to know what would happen next. An exciting read! — Jody C, Amazon Reviewer

Excellent read! Well developed characters. That you will love and hate at different parts. Great descriptive writing; easy to picture the scenes. Plenty of twists and turns that keep you reading until the last page. Can’t wait to see what this author does next!! Great read from a hot new author!!! Don’t miss! — G. Lunsford, Amazon Reviewer

This book is a must read! Brings you right into the situation as you not only empathize with but identify with all the characters. Difficult to put down! –– NEPC, Amazon Reviewer

While reading “The Struggle Within:A Novel” I encountered characters who I did not expect to like at first, but ended up becoming fully invested in. If you are looking for a story that will cause you to think and raise a stimulating dialogue with friends, I highly recommend this book! — Tom W, Amazon Reviewer

The Struggle Within is an adrenalin-filled thriller novel that opens with a prison riot. As the story unfolds, the inmates’ demands become clear and the worries of outsiders take over. Will the inmates get what they want? Or will the government regain control before there is further damage? Readers will have to keep turning the pages to find out.”                        –Editorial Review
