Recent Reviews for Ronald L. Donaghe


Common Sons (Book) - 4/15/2003 6:09:04 AM
Before reading Ronald Donaghe’s novel Common Sons, I read his more recent novel The Salvation Mongers. Both novels take place in New Mexico, and some of the characters from Common Sons make brief appearances in The Salvation Mongers. My deep enjoyment of The Salvation Mongers gave me high expectations for the novel it followed. To set the expectations even higher, the third printing of Common Sons begins with some of the many comments that readers have sent Donaghe over the years; those readers tell of the many ways Common Sons touched their lives. Common Sons will touch your life too! Lovers Joel and Tom seem like many of the masculine young men that most adults remember from high school. Donaghe makes them completely real and believable as he introduces us to their struggles, doubts, conflicts, explorations, love, and triumph. Donaghe also makes the small-town setting seem completely real, describing the landscape, the church politics, the farming, and everything else with vibrant honesty and fascination. This novel easily met my extremely high expectations and left me feeling hopeful for the countless gays and lesbians who face hostility for trying to maintain committed relationships.

Loved this book and the sequel (Lance). I read each in one sitting and can't wait for next one (hurry please). Apart from Kent and Jamie in Murder at Willow Slough I don't think I've liked two people, in a book, more.

Intriguing. Crazy people are always fun reads, even when they're dark and scary. Looks like a winner. IMHO, you should add a downloadable chapter to this page.
