What readers are saying…


From Goodreads:

Jan rated it five-gold-stars

it was amazing

“A fairy tale, a morality tale, and an outstanding read! I am so glad that I picked this one out of my too tall TBR pile! An excellent read for the overwhelmed, disenchanted, and those suffering from the weather. The publisher’s blurb leaves nothing else for me to say about this one unless I stoop to spoilers, so grab a copy and make your day!”

[Following is the official review of “Schifflebein’s Folly,” an Iris Chacon novel.]

4 out of 4 stars

“Schifflebein’s Folly” is a delightful story where good things happen to good people and everyone has a happy ending. For me, this was a refreshing change from some of the darker stories I’ve been reading lately. …

I can recommend this book to any reader as there is no violence, sex or questionable content. This is a story that will make you feel good about the world and about pursuing impossible dreams. The book is less than 200 pages, so it’s a quick read. I see it as a perfect rainy day book for any age level. The author really seems to have had fun writing this story and it was a delight to read. I’m not quite sure what genre to place it in, unless feel-good is its own genre. Iris Chacon shows a real gift for creating unique but believable characters here, and the pace of the story is consistent throughout and doesn’t drag at any point.

I hope you will pick up this little book and enjoy it as much as I did. I’m giving this 4 out of 4 stars because it was a happy story with a few unexpected twists.
