Lissette E. Manning – Review


Lissette E. Manning reviews The Priest and the Peaches, "We’re able to watch a family grow within a period of seven days while faced with an adversity that, at times, seems to want to topple the family altogether.

aobibliosphere reviews The Priest and the Peaches, "I am an orphan myself and the eldest child too. I can relate well with Teddy, the eldest brother, as he gathers his wits about him now that he takes over his late father's role as head of the family. The circumstances and intensity may be different but the emotions he felt were real and familiar because i went through them at one point in my life."
