What Others are Saying


Ride With Me

“Love stories such as this are too rare – heartfelt, tender, real and full of honest emotions of many kinds.”
—Grady Harp, Hall of Fame Amazon Reviewer

“I really enjoyed reading this book, and it reminded me a lot of my grandparents. I think that that type of love is rare and inspirational. Ruth and Earl built a relationship based on friendship, respect, and unconditional love, and their relationship remained steadfast through the years and challenges… One of my patients was talking about death one time, and talked about leaving her husband behind. She said that as long as her husband was alive, a part of her heart would remain on earth with him. This is the type of connection that I saw in Ruth and Earl.”
—Kelli, Clinical Nurse Specialist, Indianapolis, IN

“The author has a rare gift for accurately conveying both emotions and physical details surrounding important events and the impact of life events, whether positive or negative. The author realistically describes the pleasures, joys, sorrows, and challenges which two people who are in love faced as they built a life together based on religious values and solid principles… The author succeeded in writing a unique book which takes the reader back in time to an era which seemed simpler, more gentle and kinder, although it was fraught with danger and uncontrollable events which produced life-altering changes on both of them. This book is most highly recommended.”
—Erika Borsos, Vine Voice

Rearview Sunset

Rearview Sunset, a novel by Wisconsin author Brett Champan, is a retrospective look at the life of Beau Jamison. It can also initiate a retrospective look at the reader’s life. Beautifully written…I expect we will see more from this Wisconsin author. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and predict it will be a winner.”
—Joyce Laabs, The Lakeland Times, Minocqua, WI, full article

“I really enjoyed reading Rearview Sunset. It has a great blend of emotions – it will make you laugh, cry, smile, and reflect on your own life and the path you took to get where you are today. Champan blends personal experience with fiction and the result is an inspirational and relatable book.”
—Amanda Veldboom, Freelance Writer for Peninsula Pulse, Door County, WI, full article

“Mr. Champan’s work is refreshing in an age of violence and difficult times, uplifting in both style and substance. Set in Wisconsin’s north, both the physical and spiritual landscape are engaging and compelling. If you like Mitch Albom’s work, the novel The Shack by William Paul Young, or the works of Nicholas Sparks (The Notebook, Message in a Bottle), you will enjoy this book.”
—Carol Lee, PhD, Professor Emerita, Wisconsin Public Library Director

Fingerprints of God

“While many words have been written to describe The Word, Brett Champan in his new book, Fingerprints of God, takes us on a splendid tour of nature’s beauties and dangers in order to illustrate deep life principles that concern us all. Brett limns out personal scenes and vignettes from his faith journey and work experiences and combines them with a rich spiritual backdrop. Stepping vicariously into the author’s treks and journeys along striking, pristine hiking and horseback-riding trails, the reader discovers rippling brooks, warming campfires and distant, stirring winds used as nature metaphors to illuminate a greater purpose and calling to the Creator.”
—Adam Spurgeon Zens, Public Librarian, Wisconsin

“Fingerprints of God – Taking a Closer Look is the perfect title for Brett Champan’s book. I read the book last night, and when I woke up this morning, I immediately opened my drapes to watch the swans on our lake. I want to see the sunset tonight. I will enjoy a thunderstorm from a different perspective from now on, and not fear the sounds. The author writes from his heart and shares personal accounts of working with youth and travels in the wilderness. It is so helpful to read a book that weaves in the biblical reference to wind, water and fire with actual events we all experience in our day to day walk on this earth. I will truly look at things differently.”
—Brenda Jewell-Swartz, Connecticut
