"A good read written by a thoughtful and skilled writer"

Bathsheba Monk is the author of novels ranging from Nude Walker and Now You See it: Tales from Cokesville, PA to her Swanson Herbenko cozy mystery series. It’s no mystery what she thought after reading Setting the Family Free. Let’s skip ahead to the end:

“In an age when we humans seem hellbent on destroying the planet and everything on it, it's imperative to have authors writing with empathy about the impact our decisions have on our fellow creatures. Fiction is the perfect vehicle for this, especially in the hands of a compassionate writer. Eric D. Goodman takes an interesting premise, the release of captive animals from human control, and puts them on a more even footing with humans. Are we the same or even similar? Or are they just the "other" and must be subdued if their needs and wants conflict with ours? Goodman resists a Disney ending, and as all good writers do, manages to raise more questions than he answers. Setting the Family Free is a good read written by a thoughtful and skilled writer.”
