** “My younger daughter gifted me your book. She also gifted her sister a copy as well. We’ve read the book and identified with many of the anecdotes you related.  How simple and how true they are. We are delighted to reread it again and again.”  Pearl
** “Little vignettes that speak to us all. Cuddle up in winter or stretch out in the summer sun. A nice afternoon read.” Wendy
** “This is an extremely interesting, well written book about female experiences. The author has shared her stories as well as stories by other women and stories all women can relate to. Her use of quotations was excellent after each topic.Being divorced, single and having a husband remarry, I could relate to the author with those stories. So many other stories touched home base with me. I think she is on to something. Women need to band together, and help each other out by telling our stories to each other.A great book to give for Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day or anyday. Give to your girlfriends, daughters, sisters, mothers.As the author states “more than ever we women need each other.”
I am thinking of sending my own story in to see if she accepts it for her next book.” Theresa
