I grew up in a small town in New Hampshire, always surrounding myself with nature. My inspiration typically comes from peaceful moments I find in nature, as simple as snow falling directly onto my face. The first novel I wrote is entitled "Tearing Honor." I first started writing novels as a participant of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) and continue to do so to this day. I have a novel in my queue to release, and plan to write many more!
"I think Renee Masson's "Tearing Honor" is a very good first novel. She shows great attention to detail and obviously does her research. I felt completely enveloped into her world and was taken away to another time. A time steeped in superstitions and ignorance. A time when a simple misunderstanding can result in being hunted down like an animal.
Tearing Honor is 128 pages and is a fast easy read although I did read it over a couple of days. I give it 5/5
Honestly I was pushed towards this book as a friend of a friend wrote it, and was trying to let people know she had finally pushlished something.
I bought it as a "leave me alone" payment, but I was thoroughly surprised once I started reading it. I have a habit of abandoning books that I don't like, but this one I read straight through.
The family tensions are well written and build into the climax of the book. I don't want to give any spoilers in the review but it's well worth the read!
The only downside to the novel is that it is self published. It doesn't hurt the book at all, but I'm not a fan of the formatting and type set. But I was able to get past that and really enjoyed the book.
I enjoy books like the Hobbit, Tearing honor brought me to a different world in a different time. There are not a lot of books that can hold my attention but, this one had me from the beginning to the end. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did.
