    1. I thought these were exquisite stories. Roy Parvin writes wonderful internal landscapes, in particular the first story which was riveting, moving stuff. The novella is an interesting format and if you're exploring it as a writer/reader, Roy Parvin has "the real stuff" in these stories.

    2. Roy Parvin has crafted 3 novellas set in the Northwest that look at the inner workings of characters that are at a moment of change. "Betty Hutton" follows an ex-con who is trying to go straight and who has a feeling that there is a special place that will be his perfect spot.

    3. Three novellas: My favorite was the first one called Betty Hutton. It concerned a man trying to get away from his past, and change his life. He drives from the east coast and ends in Montana. The second is called In the snow forest, a sort of a love story. I also liked this.The third was Menno's Daughter which was I also enjoyed.

    5. Helped me write my own novella. It's a great literary form that's rarely published anymore. That's too bad, in my opinion.

    6. .Three stories about redemption involving ordinary people that have had a rough go of it. I highly recommend it!

    7. The short story "In the Snow Forest", included in the book by the same title, is a warm insight to a humble mans mind seeking a relationship. I learned how un-complex the makings can be.
