The New Podler Review posted a review of Waiting For Spring. Naturally, I’ll only quote the praise here:
What impresses me about Waiting for Spring the most is the writing. R.J. Keller is a good writer…and there are some good lines in the book that are worthy of a good independent film.
Another impressive aspect of Spring is the humanity of its characters—Tess and Brian seem human for two reasons. They have personal struggles resulting from understandable yearnings and conflicting emotions.
Not only are the characters real, they inhabit a realistically portrayed world populated by secondary characters who seem alive. Someone once said that you should write about that which you know, and R.J. Keller certainly knows the world that she chose to portray in her novel. I think that there are more books to be written about the characters in these two towns.
