  • Bonnie B. (Port St. Lucie,, FL)
    A Novel of Redemption, Love, Spirituality and Secrets
    The author of this novel was a member of a band called 'The Roches' which I have to admit I have never heard of. This is a tale of secrets, redemption, spirituality and love. It is a first novel and so there are some uneven spots in it and could use some better editing. Ms. Roche shows promise as an author and I look forward to her future works.
  • Wendy F. (Kalamazoo, MI)
    Wayward Saints
    Mary Saint left Swallow NY to become a raunchy rock star but never really shook the pull of home. This was an entertaining book but some things I felt were never really explained. What really happened with Garbagio? What was the back story of Mr. De Sockie? The characters were engaging and I would like to know more about them. Maybe in the next book?
  • Lucy B. (Urbana, Ohio)
    Mary from Swallow
    I have to admit that I never heard of the Roches. It is my feeling that a lot of the people in the traveling music business have demons in their past. The storyline about Mary Saint from Sliced Ham was sad. Her family troubles that caused her to leave home, plus her troubles along the way, and finally ending up back in her hometown after many years did make an interesting read.
  • Nancy A. (Woodstock, Georgia)
    A Bunch of Nothing
    I did not enjoy this book. The characters did not seem "real", the plot seemed contrived, the descriptions seemed forced and the profanity was gratuitous. Even so, I think fans of Suzzy Roche, fans of the three-sister band the Roches, people interested in the music business and women of a similar age as Mary Saint, will appreciate the book and the story of "going home" so long after high school.
  • Sherrill B. (Columbia City, In.)
    wayward saints
    I didn't like this book. the language was very offensive and even though I tried to overlook it I couldn't. I didn't like the theme or anything about it.
