Over the past few days I was pleased to receive notice of two five-star reviews for my first novel Pursuit of a Dream. This always puts a big grin on my face. What author doesn’t like seeing those five stars? So, I thought I would create a quick blog post to share these excellent reviews with you…
A Satisfying Well-Written Story of Hope – July 19, 2012
By Eden Baylee (Canada)
Car racing is not my thing, and I cannot remember the last time I read a story that was touted as `wholesome.’ In the age of zombies, horror, and thrillers vying for attention, Pursuit of a Dream seems out of favor with the current trend … but, and this is a HUGE BUT, what isn’t out of favor is excellent writing and storytelling, and this is what Mr. Pruneda provides.
The theme is universal – a young boy is tested at an early age. How he chooses to rise to the occasion will determine the outcome of his life pursuit.
I view this story as a parable for anyone who has ever had a dream. Though dreams come true, what is the cost and is it worth it? These are questions each of us wrestles with daily, and Mr. Pruneda does it with eloquence in his book.
Family, Love and Faith – July 17, 2012
By Dannie Hill (Thailand/ Houston)
PURSUIT OF A DREAM (Victory Lane) by Robert Pruneda is a story of a family and it takes you through the tragic death a mother and wife. All the while a father wrestles with providing for his two sons while finding what is more important: work or family.
I thoroughly enjoyed going along with John Lockhardt and his two sons, Jared and Caleb, as they all come to terms with growing up and learning the importance of family. This is a heartfelt tale.
If you enjoy a wonderful story that takes you through, highs, lows, faith and inspiration then you will find great pleasure in Pursuit of a Dream.
I am a car racing fan and really enjoyed the details and lifelong hard work it takes to become a top race driver. It commitment.
Pursuit of a Dream is a great wholesome story and I highly recommend it!
