    Among Pigeons was a sneaky read. It starts out in the middle of a situation, and, one by one Dr. Wood introduces us to characters, likeable and at the same time flawed, to see another side of the story. The characters are memorable, the compelling story always a little out of focus, as another cop, homeless person, priest, nurse, victim, etc. adds another perspective and piece to the puzzle. The dialogue is interesting and authentic, and the protagonist, Roman Barnes; once a person of substance, who lost his family, all earthly possessions, and self esteem, finds redemption and purpose in the service of others. It was hard to put down, and harder to forget. I hope the good Doctor keeps writing!

    Dr. Wood: You have created a fabulous narrative of what life is like when it is strip-mined of all its necessities and niceties. Roman Barnes is a real person whom every aware soul has encountered. There are thousands of Roman Barnes like persons roaming the sides-streets and culverts of America. I hope your work causes the comfortable ones to notice one or two of the misplaced ones now and then. Blessings and Congrats! Steve Bonenberger

    'You are worth more to me than many sparrows.' Those words that can be found in the Bible at Matthew 10:31 have always made me feel good about myself and how God sees us. It's so easy to not see the value that we are, and this message definitely comes out i the book AMONG PIGEONS by Dr. Lawrence A. Wood. We meet Roman Barnes, an individual who is among the invisible when it comes to the issue of homelessness and personal worth in the eyes of some, but what Roman realizes is that he has value. It's just to him and others to recognize it. The way the book moves we are able to get 3 things from it: 1) Where we are doesn't have to define who we are, 2) Sometimes blessings can come from the most unexpected places and 3) it's a decision for all of us to decide to do the right thing, even when it's not easy. Roman goes through these three things, and because of that we're able to see how whether it's sparrow, pigeons or anything that is looked down on or taken for granted, we are able to...

    I enjoyed Among pigeons. I love "who dunnits" and this does not disappoint. The author weaves the characters into the story with ease as if you are really there. The story itself took me to an unexpected, but exciting journey. I liked it very much, and look forward to more from Lawrence Wood. Bravo! Bravo!

    Such an AMAZING book. Being in Law Enforcement, I could relate to the solving of a crime with all the pieces coming together, also dealing with homelessness in my community. It made me realize also that homelessness can happen to anyone depending on their circumstances. One never knows what happened to make someone homeless. They are all humans and are doing their best with the resources they have. We need to slow down and really evaluate our own lives. It made me stop and think, if I was in that position, would I want someone to acknowledge me or offer me a cup of coffee. Most definitely I would. Thank you so much for opening my awareness of others who are less fortunate, either by homelessness, mental health or some other unforeseen reason. Job well done, Mr. Woods. Can't wait for the sequel.
