Praise for Call It Quits
Pat Grissom’s “Call it Quits” was an easy to read story of a young women who struggles with low self esteem resulting from her upbringing and subsequent poor choices. I liked the way Pat weaves the music and events of the time period of the early 70’s into this story as the reader gets to know the principle characters in this rural north western locale. And it was satisfying to root for this young woman as she evolves and grows through new relationships and experiences. I look forward to the next book based on this character.
Pat Grissom will captivate your interest in her new book, “Call it Quits”. This is a page turner as her characters come to life as they deal with issues in 1973 that are still with us today. You can easily identify with these such as dysfunctional families, women’s equalities, and self worth. We have all loved “love”, but the definition of “love” takes on an entirely different meaning from what the heroine’s life has taught her about relationships.
Ms. Grissom wove a believable story of a young woman caught in a seemingly impossible situation. Her characters came alive so that you hated the villains and championed the young woman. This story really draws you in as you see how the woman comes out of her shell into her own and experiences life and real love. And Ms. Grissom takes you right there with her. The emotions her book draws out of you make you anxious to read the next chapter in the young woman’s life – can’t wait until the fall when the next book come out!
