    1. What a book! The author asked me for an honest review. This very well written riveting book is a must read! It deals with a myriad of behaviors and prejudices that should be dealt with and the ignorance abolished.I was part of the desegregation process but my experiences were different on the west coast, so different from the midwest and expecially the south. I was either oblivious or sheltered from the racism because I was not impacted or should I say bothered by it until I was in my early 20s [...]

    2. "Bridge Ices Before Road" by Sienna Rose was given to me by the author for an honest review. It is a lovely and heart warming book, telling the story of two twelve-year-old girls in a suburb of Boston as they grow into adulthood in the 1970s.Frances is adopted by an Irish-Italian (Catholic) couple and an only child. The book is told from her perspective, showing brilliantly her manifold thoughts and feelings as she moves from one episode of her life to the next: Her ambiguous feelings towards he [...]

    3. This novel is one of those freebie giveaway deals authors so often set up to stir interest in a new, often first-time, project. I loved it so much I'd have gladly paid full price for the chance. Sienna Rose is a bright new voice in the indie world. Her debut story chronicles the lives of two eleven-year-old girls coming of age in 1970 New England. Picture a suburb of Boston, if you will. I love a well-told story, and Bridge Ices Before Road certainly fits the bill. It's a lengthy read, but the p [...]

    4. Is it possible to love a book and hate it at the same time? It was easy to get wrapped up in the characters lives and be right there with them; even to the point I know what they look like! Growing up in this time period, I had neatly stored away the memories of the racism, bigotry, and the Vietnam war. Most of the guys from my graduating class came back in body bags. Every generation has it's own 'stuff' to deal with though.Sienna was able to record the very real sounds and feelings of the time [...]

    5. Weaving psychological insight into a compelling story, Bridge Ices Before Road tracks the innocence of a child of the late 1950’s as she awakens to the realities of racism, sexism and cruelty in the world, and the complexities of her own family dynamics. The book touches on clergy sex abuse as well, sadly a current issue. But even as the story peels back the psychological underpinnings of dysfunction, we are reminded that with love, compassion, and the kindness of strangers, human beings have [...]

    6. This was an interesting coming of age book. It had many levels, layers and components to it. It starts out with two unlikely girls becoming friends. I do not really read this type of book normally. I was reading it and about halfway through it I was starting to remember why I don't generally read these. Then the book picked up big time. There were all kinds of twists, turns, and exciting events. There were many things hinted at in the beginning half of the book. I was thinking they would remain [...]

    7. This novel is fabulous! So much so, I agreed to record it despite the fact that it is Sienna Rose's first novel and only had a handful if reviews when i read it. i knew i was hooked just from the audition script. It is long, that I will not deny, but it is worth every minute. The story is so intimate and well-developed that you literally feel like you know that characters when you're finished. Recording it will definitely take some time, but I know in my heart that it will be time well spent. Si [...]

    8. A friend put me up on this fantastic new indie novel. Set in 1970, this story follows the lives of a pair of eleven-year-old girls growing up in the Boston area during a time of social unrest. Sienna Rose tackles issues of racial division, forced desegregation, homosexuality, and child abuse. It is at times dark and terrifying, but it never loses sight of the light at the end of the tunnel. Every family bares its own secrets; some are worse than others. This story uncovers a few secrets that cou [...]

    9. A telling, powerful family story riveting in its emotional depth and characterization. Two families build an emotional bridge after years of estranged misunderstanding. The bonds enrich all their lives with love and insight. I truly cared about the characters and what might become of them. Deep layers of intolerance, ignorance, and prejudice weave a story within the story. Delightful and lovely imagery scattered throughout the prose.

    10. Great book! It's a coming of age book set in the 1970's. For me it was quite the nostalgic book, but with an exciting, and meaningful plot too! Extremely well developed characters, and definitely was hard to put down! I don't save most of my Kindle books after reading, but this will definitely be one to save!

    11. This story is all heart with a few nail-biting moments. There are so many things packed into this story of a Catholic family in Boston, set in the 1970’s. Frances Orillio and Maddy Malone meet when they are about eleven and this work takes you through their lives to high school days. Some of the themes explored are the relationships between mothers and daughters, bullying, family secrets, bigotry and roles of men and women in that era. There were rich descriptions and the characters were fully [...]

    12. I won this book on .I loved this book. It was straight forward, very interesting, well written and easy to read. The characters were realistic and totally believable. The storyline was engaging. It takes place in the same era as the one I grew up in but in a part of the country and with an emphasis on religion that didn't impact me. This made it all the more fascinating to me. It always astounds me to realize how the world treated women and black people in those decades. Then I was too young to [...]
