"The brilliantly woven canvas upon which C.J. tells his story is heartbreaking and triumphant in the
same breath. Driven to tears one moment and crying out in joy the next, the reader will be forever touched by this eloquent story of love and
survival amidst one of the darkest chapters in our nation’s history. I implore all of you to curl up on the couch with a warm cup of tea or a nice glass of wine, clear your mind, and escape
into An Uncommon Folk Rhapsody."
