Editorial Reviews


MBR: "PURGATORY... is about movie stars, love, and thwarted passions and purposes;... death, resurrection, and revitalization... a focus on abandonment... and the lasting consequences of bad choices.

"...literary in its approach... [based] upon the slowly evolving relationships... of individuals ...[who] find their lives unexpectedly entwined... PURGATORY's real strength lies in Ehrhardt's ability to ... tug at the heartstrings of her readers... fine observations of ... integrity and its impact on life choices ...a story that is hard to put down...

"Readers of women's fiction and literature will relish the... involving progression [of] each of the characters.. along their paths to being true to themselves and those around them." D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer

"This book was a feast...I found myself turning page after page, and DEVOURING the words, licking my lips figuratively at how delicious they were, and thinking: SHE CAN'T KEEP THIS UP! There is no way she can continue to let me walk around and see and hear and feel what the characters are experiencing; except she did...Kary is CLEARLY a hero, by any criteria you want to apply apart from armed combat, and she is the center of the book. She lives in isolation in New Hampshire, and writes ... She has other grief in her life, but she does not share the pain casually." - Amazon reviewer Pat Patterson 

"...while much of the plot centers on the cautious romance, Pride's Children is also about a writer's way of interacting with the world, living with a chronic condition (CFS - when I saw another review mention this, I realized that I couldn't think of any book I'd read, recently, involving a character with a disability or chronic illness - a significant hole in terms of diversity), and the struggle to remain balanced and kind when new people and routines enter one's carefully-ordered sanctuary." - Amazon reviewer Sophia Nuñez

"What it is, is exactly what I want in a book,...immersion in other lives, other personalities, other realities...I stayed up late and ignored my work and read and read and read...I honestly don't know how to explain the grip this book had on me from the first. I couldn't stop reading it, and I wanted it never to end. I've read other books that affected me this way, but the authors always hurt the spell by tossing a plot bomb in through the window. Ehrhardt may do that before the trilogy is over, but she doesn't do it in this book. The climax and ending are just as they should be: strong, natural, and satisfactory." - Author, blogger, and reviewer Marian Allen

"Ehrhardt delves into the heart of her characters, imbuing this romance with an integrity often lacking in modern novels of this genre. Each obstacle the characters must over come is treated with depth and intimacy. It's not gooey (I hate that) but gritty in an intelligent and classy way. That's another plus, not only is this a work of literature, but it's set in stark modernity, with heaps of historical flashes and elucidation...Ehrhardt is a unique emerging writer and I yearn for more from these attractive characters, having gotten to know them in such depth, that living without them seems unfair." - Author Kelly McRae, Amazon review

From the Author

She has devoted the past twenty-some years to learning to write to the standards of the early classics she was steeped in, as she believes that messages in fiction must be surrounded by the utmost in quality entertainment, and that fiction is the most powerful tool we have for slipping through the barriers we put up around our hearts and our minds.
