Book Reviews

“From Locust Grove, Georgia to Detroit, Michigan, the debut novel from Monice Mitchell Simms is a journey that grabs a hold of you from page one and doesn’t let you go until the end.  Even then, you’ll be begging for more.” – Reads4Pleasure

I couldn’t put this book down. A page turner, each burning beneath my fingers, I read it in two days! Awesome. I look forward to the rest of the trilogy.” – Quincy LeNear Gossfield, Filmmaker/Writer

“I started this book on Sunday and couldn’t put it down. By late Monday, I had finished reading it.Well, I had almost finished it, because I refuse to read the last chapter until the author publishes the next book! My only disappointment with the book is that I cannot watch the film as the story takes place – the characters and setting are visually outlined that you can literally “see” everything taking place. I can’t wait for the second book to come out. It was a great story and I highly recommend it. ” – Malla Haridet

“Monice Mitchell Simms is a storyteller. I don’t mean that to sound light or insignificant…Simms has written such a page turner that it’s girth surprisingly never hits any lulls or feels overworked. This debut is also the promising beginning of a trilogy of which I highly anticipate the sequel, The Mailman’s Daughter. If you like great, meaty stories, do get your hands on a copy of Address: House of Corrections.” – BrownGirl Book Speak

“Finished reading “Address: House of Corrections” Thursday morning. A triumphant debut of which, I so humbly assert, your literary foremother Zora Neale Hurston would be proud. I can’t wait for the rest of “The Mailman’s Daughter.”  – Sonya Vann
