Editorial Reviews

Review

From Publisher's Weekly, 5/22/17: "Leaming's intriguing and fast-paced debut follows the actions of three men during the 1999 Myanmar Embassy siege in Bangkok by Burmese rebels. They are a monk named Ramanya, an English priest named Father Bob, and an American teacher named Michael, something they admit "sounds like the beginning of a horrible joke." All three have left troubled lives behind to start anew in Bangkok. Right before the embassy is taken, Ramanya learns that the family he thought he lost in Burma could still be alive, and sets off to find out. Father Bob and Michael join his journey in order to escape their own problems. With the help of friends and those they meet along the way, the trio hurries to cross the border into Myanmar before it is closed. Filled with excellent descriptions ("a mist filled valley, white clouds clinging to the forest walls like cotton candy"), this thoughtful tale keeps the pages turning. Leaming effectively steps back from the turmoil of a terrorist attack and reminds readers of individual lives as they exist during and after disruption."

"Packed with vivid descriptions and unique, unforgettable characters, this novel grabs readers within the first few pages. The amount of detail and narrative wealth in the pages is a marvel. This is one of those exceptional books that readers will intentionally put down, so as to not reach the end too quickly. The captivating story, perfect pace, significant research and highly relatable characters make this novel an enthralling emotional adventure." Self-Publishing Review, ★★★★½ 

"Don't Go, Ramanya is thriller reading at its best, cementing a turbulent political atmosphere with an overlay of diverse and realistic human concerns and endeavors that border on the extraordinary. Genre fans who seek atmosphere and description in their reads will find that Leaming doesn't sacrifice either psychological depth or evocative setting for the sake of fast-paced action, winding all into an emotionally and socially charged saga that's hard to put down." -- Diane Donovan, The Midwest Book Review
 
From The BookLife Prize in Fiction: "Leaming's fast-paced novel hits many strong notes as it follows British priest Father Bob, American ex-pat Michael Shaw, and Burmese rebel Ramanya from Bangkok to the border to smuggle Ramanya back into the country. The sense of place created by the author is excellent throughout... "
