Wonderful

This is the author's debut novel? This is a very well written and thought provoking inspirational piece. Very impressive. It is food for the heart and the soul. Of course, the narration by Barbara Caruso absolutely makes this a must-read novel. Her narration is a large part of why this novel is so much better for me as an audiobook, than it would have been on paper. Kudos, to author and narrator for a wonderful read. I can't wait for your next novel.

AWSOME!!

I FOUND THIS BOOK SO HEART WARMING AND TENDER. A ROMANCE WITHOUT ALL THE CRUDE DISCRIPTIONS OF SEX, THAT SO MANY AUTHORS FEEL THEY HAVE TO WRITE IN THEIR STORY IN ORDER TO SELL. THIS STORY TAKES YOU TO A DIFFERENT TIME AND PLACE. I HATED TO SEE IT END. IF YOUR LOOKING FOR A CLEAN WHOLESOME CHRISTIAN LOVE STORY, THIS IS IT. I WANT TO READ ALL OF KIM VOGEL SAWYER'S BOOKS IF THIS IS THE WONDERFUL RESULT TO EXPECT.
