"This is the only family we are..."

USA Today bestselling author, From Womens' Pens author and humorist, Susan Jean Ricci is best known for her series of works titled Cindy's Crusades. This is what she said about my women's fiction novel, My Own Voice:
November 29, 2019
I knew Uvi Poznansky’s story My Own Voice (Still Life With Memories – Book One), was going to get to me, from the moment Anita tells Lenny, “Say anything apart from love.”
As an avid fan of this author and, having read much of her work over the years, I was correct – this story is yet another captivating treasure.
Anita is a naïve, child-like woman who strives to measure up to her lover Lenny’s expectations, while the memory of his first wife Natasha remains a continuous interference between them as a soon to be married couple – Natasha’s musical genius, her style and grace, and the love Lenny had for her doesn’t seem to dissipate over time - according to Anita. There are so many emotions tugging each character’s heart strings, including Ben's, Lenny’s son, that this reader’s compassion for Anita’s intense predicament inspired me to read the book aloud, at times, to comprehend Anita’s mind-set of never feeling cherished, understood, or even appreciated as a person in her own right, while the other characters fight their internal battles - Especially when the secrets of this dysfunctional three-some continue to unfold...
My Own Voice is a brilliant beginning for the Still Life With Memories Series. Further, I find when Lenny, the seemingly, uncaring husband and writer who can’t seem to finish his work, states, “Every word gets me closer to the end,” conveys a sentiment that rings true for all concerned, including the reader.
Being said, luckily for Ms. Poznansky’s many fans, the series continues onward to several other installments, which you won’t want to miss. My Own Voice is a highly recommended read, and five glorious stars are awarded for tight literary prose, a highly imaginative storyline, and unique characterization. Bravo, Ms. Poznanski!
