I always get nervous when a successful published author reads one of my books, so I was relieved to read Adelle Laudan’s lovely review of A Christmas Gift.
She posted the following on her blog:
“As a young girl I was an avid fan of shows like Little House on the Prairie. Reason being, my father had VERY strict rules about what we could and could not watch on television. Eventually I fell in love with the cast of characters and the warm, fuzzy feeling they left me with.
This book does that for me. It is a very honest and simplistic story of the strength in family, and the emotional account of one little girl, who unbeknown-st to her, touches the lives of all those who come to know her, or were lucky enough, to be loved by her.
I invite you to read this story and you will come to realize, even the smallest of children can make a difference. and sometimes… miracles do happen.”
And another fantastic published author, Celia Yeary, left lovely comments about my book. Here is what Celia said:
“Adelle–I agree 100% that A Christmas Gift is a wonderful story of familial workings, though the eyes of the young daughter Debby. I loved the story, not only for it’s perfect, sweet message, but because of Diane’s superb writing. There was a nostalgic tone I really like, and it took me straight back to my own childhood in my 50s home, with a caring ever-present mother and family.Thanks, Adelle, for reviewing this book for others to see.”
I hope people will buy A Christmas Gift - that would be a huge blessing for me.
Will post New Year’s Resolutions SOON! But for now, HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE!!!!!
