Ted has a knack for drawing the reader in with suspense, plot twists, and rich details. As with his previous novels, I enjoyed the language and culture he weaves in to the story that add depth and texture. He has a humble way of incorporating themes of justice and equity.
It took me a little bit...

I just finished the book “Little Flower” by Ted Oswald. The author is a word smith that brings into biting reality the world of India’s ‘underbelly’. He paints human faces on the country’s sex worker industry and the charity workers who reach out to the helpless and hopeless.
It isn’t a love stor...

Little Flower is a great read. It features a vivid setting, well-developed nuanced characters, moving relevant themes, and an unique style- the whole book is written as a letter from the narrator to the Pope. I was hooked right from the beginning and enjoyed it all the way to the end.

She takes the Pope verbally through all that went on--the good, the bad, and the ugly. But in a way that does not offend a...

Last read of 2017....not sure I grasped the entirety of the book, there was so much happening, that I was unfamiliar with. But...what a vocabulary...that alone gets 4 stars.

So disjointed in more than one area
Would not recommend reading this book
Some characters were hard to follow appearing early in the story and no mention of them until the end.

A nun and a prostitute try to figure who murdered the prostitute's lover in India. Oswald throws in some twists in the book to try to keep it interesting but I don't know if the twists are enough to carry to book.
