Gathering String ‘still trails around in my head’

Two more 5-star Amazon reviews sing the praises of Mimi Johnson’s Gathering String:

  • Gin Collins says the “excellent story” is a “non-political political thriller with a wonderful love story.”
  • Dan Conover says he read the novel more than a year ago “and it still trails around in my head like the last whiff of smoke from the bonfire of my own newspaper career.” The book “is the only novel about newspaper people I’ve ever read that communicates the soul-deep, convoluted mess that old school journalists loved and hated about that lifestyle,” Conover wrote. “Johnson captures that experience in honest, easy prose that’s as beautiful and unpretentious as the Iowa landscape she so clearly loves. This is an easy book to recommend, and not just to journalists.”

That makes 29 5-star reviews (and seven 4-star reviews) out of 37 total Amazon reviews. In case you’re not finished with your Christmas shopping …
