Book Review: Better You Go Home by Scott Driscoll


About the Book: Seattle attorney Chico Lenoch wonders why his Czech father refuses to contact family left behind the Iron Curtain. Searching through his father’s attic after the Velvet Revolution, Chico discovers letters dated four decades earlier revealing the existence of a half-sister. He travels to the Czech Republic to find his forgotten sister and unearth the secrets his father has buried all these years. There is self-interest behind Chico’s quest. Most urgently, he is nearing kidney failure and needs a donor organ. None of his relatives are a suitable match. Could his sister be a candidate? Chico also meets Milada, a beautiful doctor who helps him navigate the obstacles to finding his sister. While Chico idealizes his father’s homeland, Milada feels trapped. Is she really attracted to him, or is he a means of escape to the United States? Chico confronts a moral dilemma as well. If he approaches his sister about his need for a kidney, does he become complicit with his father and the Big Shots of that generation who’ve already robbed her of so much?

Overall Thoughts: You can all this an immigrant story, a medical thriller and a tale of love. Driscoll keeps all the scenes tight, the action coming and details to the need to know. You are taken back behind the fallen Iron Curtain and the ghosts that still live and breathe there, which are all based off Driscoll's own experiences from visiting this part of the world. The subplots don't distract but draw you deeper into the storyline itself. If you are a fan of "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" you may want to pick this novel up as well.

Life often obscures more than it reveals. Writing well is about knowing how a story is built, and then pouring the raw material of life into it. One must find material he or she cares about and stiffen it with the scaffolding of voice, character and premise―until a story emerges.

Book Review of SpecialT: Nine Lives - Nine Names

About the Book: Cats teach us some of life's most important lessons. After all, nine lives allow them time to get things right.

God, in His infinite wisdom and I imagine a chuckle or two, often uses one of His marvelous creatures get our attention. I'm convinced that SpecialT, an older, gentle, tabby cat, was divinely led to my home and into my heart because some of the principles I had previously learned about family, friendship, and God's faithfulness needed reinforcing.

Our Thoughts: We have read many different memoirs, but this one is so unique. Not only because it is about a cat, but also how this one cat showed his family and those touched with his feliane ways that life is to be explored, enjoyed and shared with all around you. Boyer's story tugs at your heart. You don't need to be an animal lover to enjoy this book, but it is the perfect gift for those who are.

Boyer traces the story from when she first saw SpecialT appear on her doorstep and how she knew that this older cat would be the pet who would grace her life always. And SpecialT did grace her life for many years to come. His story reveals how delightful life can end up being if we can find the path God wants for us, take it, persevere, and not look back.

We could relate to how Boyer felt when SpecialT passed away. Boyer's written goodbye to this cat will surely pull at your heartstrings. One of our reviewers sons also had a beloved cat for many years. She said, "It took a long time to stop weeping and grieving. Even now as a young man he still gets tears in his eyes when he sees a picture of his childhood furry friend."
