Poughkeepsie Reviews

Poughkeepsie Brotherhood Series Reviews by Debra Anastasia

   Author Rachel Triska

"This book is one of the most amazing explorations of what make us human that I have ever had the pleasure of reading.
All in all a beautifully inter-woven tale of have many different personalities can come together to form a true family; and how in the end, each needs the other. Every one of these characters managed at some time or another, is some manner- to save each of the rest. Thank you Debra for giving us a book worthy of our love; and for giving each of the characters the ending that they deserved."

"Poughkeepsie, Poughkeepsie, Poughkeepsie... Oh, Poughkeepsie...

What do I say about you?

It took me awhile to finish this, only because people kept STEALING MY COPY. I've wanted to read it for a long time because I heard nothing but wonderful things, and Poughkeepsie certainly didn't disappoint. Blake's character tugged at my heart strings, him and Livia's relationship wholesome and sweet. It was hopeful, yet heartbreaking... certainly proves the point that you can't judge a book by its cover."


"There really is a little bit of everything in this book: a beautiful love story (or two!), drugs, parties, a helluva lot of murders, kidnapping and hostages, creative swearing, steamy moments, gunfights, a jealous/scheming ex-boyfriend, quiet times in the meadow, midnight masses at church, vengeance sprees…

The book is really about finding ways to be together and not allowing the future to be ruled by the hurts of the past."

"Author Debra Anastasia's tremendous capacity to hold me with her words astounds me. Each sentence, each scene she paints with her words, was a gift. I found myself re-reading lines, trying to wrap my brain around the simple beauty she created. I am at the same time jealous and thankful for authors like Anastasia. but most of all I am grateful.

Poughkeepsie is possibly the most beautiful story I've had the fortune of reading. I simply could not put it down. By the end, I was hiding from my husband, reading with a towel over my mouth so he couldn't hear my sobs. Poughkeepsie is dark and sad at times. It is also full of light and beauty. Poughkeepsie is a story of love in it's simplest, yet bravest form. I am so lucky to have read it."
