    I have become addicted to your books. Each time I finish one (24) I have a difficult time relaxing cuntil I can get another. I find so much of my own family happenings in your writings.

    Oceans apart was one of the most loved. I saw my nephew all through the writings, I just knew that any moment I would read where you had truly identified him as Gary, my nephew’s name.

    After my mother’s death, I had the same experience of refusing to let my dad find happiness in another female friend, I could not imagine going home and another woman being in our home; using the cooking utensils,
    dishes, etc that my mother always used preparing meals for our family. I
    stressed to my father that he did not need anyone, he had a large family and he could stay with each one’s family and never be lonely. I am the 11th child of 18 children and I knew as I read your book that you were writing about my family. As I shared it with my husband, I often pointed that a few things were changed but the story’s message was the same.

    As I read on thru other books, Imsaw myself so much asking God for the same attention and answers that your families were needing.
