K Colby said Captivating Story!
This book drew me in from the first page. The author’s descriptions of each character and the details of each element created such vivid images. I feel certain that I could see the story unfold exactly as it was in the author’s imagination. The characters came alive as the story continued. The author’s masterful transitions between eras and the threads of history and the culture of the time period give us just enough to frame the story and elicit emotion about the characters without cluttering the plot. I couldn’t put the book down and once I finished, I didn’t want it to be over. I hope there’s a sequel. I will be watching for more from this author. Well done Lexy Duck.
Babette Omland said Compelling subject matter
The vivid descriptions of both the characters and locales draw the reader to follow Danny in her quest. Every emotion is triggered in the reader as the young girl looks for answers from her elders. I loved everything about this book. The author conveys her first hand knowledge of both the people and places without drowning us with endless nonessential words. It is well written, I could not put it down. I look forward to a sequel or whatever she chooses to write about next. Very highly recommended.
B. Jones said Excellant Book
I absolutely LOVE this book. I couldn’t put it down. The author was so descriptive, that I could actually see the entire story unfold in my mind. As if it were a movie. I highly recommend this book. You won’t be disappointed. I’m looking forward to more books written by this author.
Virginia Granieri said The suspense keeps you reading.

P. J. Somerville said MUST READ!
Well developed characters with whom you will fall in love and love to dislike. Great scenery description allowing one to not only imagine but smell some of foods/rooms. Great job, Lexy Duck! Thank you!
Mary Jane Facciponti said A great read!

Rose D said Couldn't Put This Book Down!
I just loved The Tattered Black Book and can't wait to read more from this author! The characters are so memorable and the story so vivid. I felt Charlotte's pain, and Diana's frustration. And, like Danielle, I was impatiently waiting for the rest of the tale to unfold, yet I didn't want it to end! Now that I've finished it, I just might have to reread it to pick up the details I missed the first time around. Beautifully written, a saga masterfully told. You will love this book!
