As a writer, much of your time is spent alone without any feedback. I love it when I hear from a reader–especially when they have enjoyed the read.
Recently I received this feedback from my WW II book Hard Times in the Heartland:
“My dear friend – I could hardly put the book down. I love the discussion questions – they made me ponder as to how I would answer them.
“You are such a thoughtful writer. I know your mother and father would be very pleased with the work you did to pull together their story during the WWII period. You brought me into the story as I thought of my own parents and my own feelings while my dad was away in the Army. He was a “truck driver” and spent some time in Germany. My mom was home with a bunch of kids to manage. I remember the rationing and all the different books my mom had to deal with. It was “Hard Times” for sure. You brought me to tears when you realized it was your daddy who had come home with “I kiss your face.”
“A few days ago I read a quote from Mortimer J. Adler, “In the case of good books, the point is not how many of them you can get through, but rather how many can get through to you.”
“You got through to me. And, I thank you so much.
As an author I echo “Thank you, dear reader, for your encouraging words.”
My latest book, Joshua’s Journey: One Boy’s Victory Over Allergies is available here on Amazon.com. All my books are available in Kindle and paperback. The Miracle Books are also available in audible.
