Editorial Reviews

Review

Review by Diane Donovan, Midwest Book Review

...ONLY THE IMPASSIONED is filled with harsh realities, carefully preserved dreams, and an ultimate path that leads Andrew away from despair and inhumanity. It offers hope in a world burdened by war and inhumanity, and offers the insights of people who are creators of alternate realities--as in a world where an inventor of working manikins envisions them as saviors offering their labors "in order to free humans to do more important things in life." Just what those things can be are explored in these engrossing metaphysical scenarios leading Andrew away from a world controlled by war and sadness.
 
ONLY THE IMPASSIONED offers poetic, vivid descriptions throughout: "Her hand lightly grasped a wad of fabric, which seemed part of him. Andrew then understood that he was covered with a sheet and the sky was a ceiling with lights beneath which Andrew and his squadron moved."
 
It draws the reader into both Andrew's real world of conflicts and his metaphysical world where conflicts are confronted and resolved. The different choices and roads which lead to peace are presented in a series of vignettes which flow from one scenario to another, yet offer familiar characters with Andrew as the focal point.
 
The end result is a carefully worded and detailed series of encounters that draw the reader in and provide vivid, fine insights into the process of recovery, reconciliation and ultimately peace.
