“I read this Novella from cover to cover without putting it down. I absolutely adore the way in which the characters that I became acquainted with for a short time had such depth to them and became alive in the book… captivating.” – Mrs S, Amazon Reviewer.

“We’re living in troubled times and the things that cause the problems in this story could happen to any one of us. What we need now more than ever is a light in the dark and I honestly think this author has it. She has this way of writing that has you feeling everything the characters are feeling. Despite how dark and troubled their past or the things they go through, her characters come out the other side as better people.” – Jimmy, Amazon Reviewer
