Cher Upon A Midnight Clear / What We Lost in the Fire

“What a wonderful fairy tale this is! It’s one of those rare stories that can be read by children as well as adults … a story is full of gentle humor, tenderness, and the kind of sensitivity a lot of misunderstood children need in their lives. I think [this book is] very powerful, and it touched me deeply.” — Serena Yates, Rainbow Reviews

Cher is definitely a Christmas story for children, but it can also provide an occasion for adults to talk about the stereotypes we hold about how children should be raised and educated.” — Davide Bacca, Il Padova

Rainbow Book Awards 2021 – Honorable Mention: “I was consistently impressed with the number and variety of narrators and other characters. The author has clearly met many folks during his life and paid attention. While all the stories were good, one in San Francisco in the 1950s and one in Rome around 2000 were especially beautiful. [P]eople should read it.”

“What impressive storytelling!” — Rigoberto Gonzalez

Ricketts’ gift is to make each examination a poetic journey. — Keith Banner
