"Returning to Michael Embry’s John Ross series, which centers on the retirement years of a Boomer generation couple, is one of those pleasures I look forward to like visiting a dear old friend. It’s not that Cradle of Conflict lacks drama and suspense. The novel possesses those, but as I follow the charming and unfailingly fair-minded John Ross in his navigation of thorny problems, I find great comfort is his handling of everyday woes that can swell into extraordinary challenges." — author Michael Hartnett

What they're saying about Cradle of Conflict

"Throughout the novel, the author talks about relationships among each member of the Ross family and the dynamics are different and yet similar in ways." — Fran Lewis, Just Reviews 


 "As I opened this review, reading Cradle of Conflict makes me feel like I have reunited with family, a family at times troubled, but always engaging and kind. These novels help me look at America’s problems today with a template of how to move forward, buoyed by its big-hearted, rational patience. May Michael Embry keep writing this John Ross series. They fill a wonderful niche for a graying America that has both feet out of the nursing home as they step in to help the generations that follow." — Michael Hartnett, author of The Blue Rat, Blue Gowanus, Death Canal, and other titles
