“Kent Stever takes you by the hand for a stroll back in time to a simpler place, one sprinkled with nostalgia and fond remembrance. His writing conjures up images so exact you’ll swear you’re sitting at a soda fountain sipping on a cherry Coke while he tells his tales.” —Mike Nistler, Publisher, Minnesota Moments Magazine
