Founder Rosenthal’s book garners 5-star review from Readers Favorite

On June 28, 2021, Readers Favorite released a review of founder Sandy Rosenthal’s debut book, Words Whispered in Water: Why the Levees Broke in Hurricane Katrina.

Here is an excerpt of the review written by Francis Mont for Readers Favorite.

“The information had been mostly unknown to me and is shockingly convincing about the book’s main theme: powerful players in the drama used every dirty trick to misdirect blame from themselves, even going to the length of blaming the victims. In the era of post-truth social media hysteria, I thoroughly enjoyed reading an objectively reported investigation into a tragedy that should never have happened….”

On its website, Readers Favorite is described as “owned and operated by authors for authors. Our staff and nearly all our 1,000+ reviewers are authors who have come together to provide fellow authors with a valuable set of resources to help them succeed.”
