Readers have already been commenting on the story:

A remarkable wordsmith, Elkink weaves a vivid portrayal of the quest of two strikingly different women seeking to infuse meaning and purpose into their lives. 

                                (Sara Davison, award-winning author of The Seven Trilogy and The Night Guardians Series)


The Red Journal is a simmering  pot of characters and plot elements. Take off the cover and savor the storyLibby’s life is about to change radically as childhood memories, a mysterious mansion, a pregnant grad student, and her promiscuous girlfriend sweep her along. The Red Journal is rich with symbolism.                                

           (Wayne Stahre, author and owner, The Habitation of Chimham Publishing)


A tour de force of characterization. Two women, their lives so disparate, and yet so intertwined, their journeys so diverse. All tied together with a tangled mystery that in the end reveals truth and brings clarity. An exploration through time and levels of meaning.   

                                                                       (Donna Fletcher Crow, The Monastery Murders)
