Final Day

On the final day of my blog tour, two bloggers post reviews and I'm thrilled with both of them.  Dalene posts about her hesitation to read my book and is now so glad she did at A Date with a Book.

And I didn't plan on saving the best for last, but it just worked out that way.  I am thrilled to share a review from Books Down My Pillow, where Camila from Chile posts about her love of the book and how the story moved her to tears.

It is overwhelming as a writer to know a reader has been touched by your words and moved by your characters.  It makes every sacrifice and effort for our art worth it.  This first tour has been fun and rewarding in so many ways.  I'd like to thank all the tour hosts for reading my book and featuring me on their blogs.

Hello, I dont know if I am leaving this comment in the right place or not but I had to contact you. I was a winner of the kindle book wish I could have said goodbye. I lost my sister in 2011 and thought it would help to read but what I didn't know till I started reading it is how much I had in common with this book. I was 29 when my sister passed we were six yrs apart and she passed of and accidentel mixage of prescribtion drugs there were alot of other things in your book I could relate to. I didnt break down as bad as she did not because I didnt care or love my sister but I have two children I had to take care of and she left behind two children that we all care for. I just wanted to thank you and let you know I love your book my sister was also alone when she went and I think about that every day.

I'm so glad you contacted me. My sister was alone and many years later, I still think about her. Thanks for sharing your story with me. And I'm so grateful you loved the book.
