Five stars for A Thin Porridge

The first official review of my historical fiction novel A Thin Porridge is in and I couldn’t be happier.

Sure, getting five stars is nice … but it’s reading the thoughts of someone who gets my story as I intended it that really makes me happy.

Here’s an excerpt from Mary Anne Yarde of The Coffee Pot Book Club:


“A Thin Porridge by Benjamin J. Gohs is a book that keeps on giving. The hours flew by as I lost myself in this sprawling and emotionally poignant story of one young woman as she desperately battles to hide the truth while at the same time, trying hard to come to terms with it. This is the kind of book that demands your respect and certainly deserves a place on your bookshelf. I loved every minute of it.”
