"Milne's latest is a touching story about a legacy of love. Although the plot is a simple one, it will resonate with readers looking to reach outside themselves and spread kindness to others."RT Book Reviews
"The One Good Thing by Kevin Alan Milne is everything that a novel should be. It is uplifting, inspiring and entertaining. The story draws readers in from page one and holds them captive to the end."
"The magic of Kevin Milne's books is that they make you stop wishing the world was a better place and inspire you to actually get up and go make it one. The One Good Thing is exactly that kind of book."Jason Wright, New York Times bestselling author of The Wednesday Letters
"Stirring and dramatic, Milne's work echoes that of Nicholas Sparks in its focus on love, commitment, faith, and the ultimate heartbreak of being human." Booklist on The Final Note
"Kevin Alan Milne's The Final Note is a beautiful soliloquy on the power of love. The opening Prelude forcefully grabs you--you find yourself immersed in Ethan's rage against the perpetrator of his wife's catastrophic outcome. . . . "

garygjwArizonaAge: 45-54Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Everyone should read this, teenagers especially.March 31, 2013garygjwArizonaAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5I dont usually write reviews but this story is so good and covers so many topics that are in the news these days. Sure you can guess the main plot but there are so many twists and turns throughout the book, even up to the ending, its a book i found hard to put down until i finished it. Its a great story about life and what we really are here for. I Recommend it for everyone and should be a requirement for middle and high school age children.
Christianfictionaddiction5 Stars Out Of 5Left me longing for just one more chapterMarch 27, 2013ChristianfictionaddictionQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I challenge you to read this book and not to shed a tear at some point! Written with deep emotion and filled with many poignant moments, "The One Good Thing" is a book that will both inspire you and leave you thinking deeply about secrets and lies and the power of the truth. Nathan Steen is a character who, in the story, has set a tremendous example not only for his family but for countless people who he touched by his acts of kindness each and every day. He would be at risk of being a character who is "too perfect", except the author cleverly wove the theme of selflessness into a story that also deals with the after affects of discovering that someone was holding onto a life-changing secret. The story alternates between the viewpoints of several different people, but flows together very well into a truly entertaining and enjoyable whole. I enjoyed each of the different characters whose eyes the readers get a chance to look through, seeing the story from multiple perspectives, and felt they were developed well. Kevin Milne is a gifted author, one who writes with heart-stirring prose, throws in a bit of mystery, tackles deep subjects like bullying and grief and abuse, and leaves the reader longing for just one more chapter!
This is the first novel written by Kevin Milne that I have had the pleasure to read, but it certainly will not be the last. I strongly recommend this story, particularly those who love a good contemporary novel, and award it 4.5 out of 5 stars.

Cindy NavarroCullman, ALAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A great lesson on doing goodMarch 13, 2013Cindy NavarroCullman, ALAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Was Nathan the good man everyone thought he was or was he trying to atone for lies he kept covered? The use of many characters voicing their POV in individual chapters, in addition to the comments left by others on the Nathan Steen Facebook Tribute Page "The One Good Thing" gave a well-rounded look at the man.
This also lets the reader ponder what each of us may face and how it appears to others. I loved the actual use of stones Nathan used to help him make a conscious effort to do a good thing. We often hurl stones of indifference, hatred, avoidance ,etc. at others and think nothing of it. Is lack of action, when offered the chance to do good, as bad as doing evil? Two of my favorite quotes sum up my opinion:
1. "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing" ~ Edmund Burke
2. "Do to others as you would have them do to you." ~ Jesus Christ
I received my copy of this book from Sarah Reck at Hachette Book Group and Center Street for the opportunity to review it. I was not required to give a positive review or to participate in the blog tour.
SallyTampa, FL5 Stars Out Of 5Five-star Book!March 12, 2013SallyTampa, FLWhat a good read! I heartily recommend this one.
Stellar writing helps the plot to flow. Realistic dialogue for each character.Twists and turns continue to surprise. Although the main character, Nathan Steen, dies early on, this is far from a depressing tale; instead, it is one filled with hope. A Facebook page is created that allows those touched by Nathan to comment about his many acts of kindness. Various characters tell their perspective of the story.
Two themes are woven throughout: bullying and family secrets.
Although this can be labeled Christian fiction, there is little religion in it.
