What Readers Are Saying about Counterpointe

More than fifty 4- and 5-Star reviews on Amazon

Warner has done an amazing job at creating in-depth characters that react to life’s challenges like real people…a great book.  Compulsion Reads Review

Counterpointe is a powerful novel of two lovers who face profound challenges. Each of them is confronted with tragedy, and a human life hanging in the balance. Poignant and insightful, Counterpointe is a compelling dramatic evaluation of what it means to be human, and what it means to love or be loved.  The Midwest Book Review

Counterpointe is not your traditional love story, just as Ann Warner is not your typical author. Ann’s brilliant, well-thought-out prose lifts her stories to a higher literary level than most of today’s fare. If you’re looking for a quick romantic read, this is not the book for you. But if you want a more thoroughly satisfying journey that takes your imagination from tragedy to self-discovery, with all of the tears and joys along the way, you should pick up Counterpointe and prepare to be impressed. Pam Berehulke, Bulletproof Editing

(a)… novel, full of sweetness, humor and vivid, lifelike characters…a wonderful exploration of two people from different worlds coming together and finding love and building a lasting, realistic relationship with all the complexities, joys and sorrows that entails. Long and Short of it Reviews  

I had the privilege of critiquing this book a while back and it’s AMAZING! So full of emotion.  Ann digs deep into the soul of her characters to give readers a satisfying story….(she) takes the reader on not one but two journeys. You can’t go wrong with this one. Sharon Cullen, Award winning author of eleven bestsellers.

The chemistry between Clare and Rob is crackling. LOVE IT! Kate Moretti author of Thought I Knew You

Reading more of your work is like coming home to a good friend I know I can trust…there is nothing I don’t like here…you wrote another brilliant story. Thank youFran McIlvey author of  Trapped

...well written tumultuous love story bringing together the disparate worlds of ballet and biochemistry in the relationship of a couple who are tried to the limit of their love.  Maeve Sleibhin, author of Mrs Maginnes is Dead
