D.W. Marchwell - Comfort

4½ stars - D.W. Marchwell excels with his novels, but he also does an amazing job with his short stories. In just a few pages he introduces us to, then gets us involved with, his characters. And he always leaves us utterly delighted. And while I would love to have more story to read, I can never figure out just how Mr. Marchwell could do it. The story may be short but it is complete as is.

Comfort is a tender, loving and, yes I'll say it, sweet story about Chris and Davis. These two young men didn't know each other for very long, but their connection was very potent. I loved the brief shared moments in their lives and the emotions came spilling across the pages [uh, virtual pages:] in an eminently satisfying manner.

Once again, D.W. Marchwell illustrates beautifully just why I not only buy his books as they're released, but also read them right away. And with my extremely large TBR that's saying something!

Chris Egeto fled to Canada to avoid the Vietnam War with only fifty dollars in his pocket and a desire to stay alive and whole; he left everything he knows and loves behind. But when he is injured just after making it across the border, Chris doesn't have a choice: he will have to trust the stranger who offers him help, a decision tha will change both their lives forever.



  1. Must add to be TBB list. :)

    You should visit my place today. Before 9 pm CDT. Just saying... ;)

  2. Oh thank you Chris!... I've been working on clearing out a whole lot of my print TBR... now I'm listing all the ones left.

    Fun, but sure takes time from the computer! *grin*

  3. I'm really, really picky about listing every ebook I get in my LT right away, so that I don't buy dupes, etc. But yowzers - it does take time!

  4. LT? I can't make heads nor tails of that one. But it sounds as though I should have one... 'cause I do - although not as often - buy duplicates. *sigh*

  5. Love my LibraryThing. Sadly, I don't feel like Goodreads offers as much for managing my books.
