Overall, it is a moving tale. I highly recommend this story. It’s a great read and I look forward to reading more novels by this author.” — H.R. Kemp, author of Deadly Secrets
“This endearing, sometimes sad, often hopeful novel concerns good people who endure misfortune without giving up…The plot cleverly weaves their circumstances together while keeping them physically distant…” — Carolyn Geduld, author of the upcoming novel Who Shall Live
