Letitia Nadia, my book is a historical novel titled Heatherstone. It is in the tradition of Jane Austen and Brontes. A romantic tale of mistaken identity, financial ruin, moral dilemmas and the obsession of desire.

John Wills

Thank you for being a friend and we know a friend is one attached to another by affection or esteem. One that is of the same nation, party, or group that favors or promotes something, which is how we met here. I will just say you’re very special and a highly favored. I would greatly appreciate you’re viewing my webpage to read a full chapter and reviews to which one wrote:

"Not since The Color Purple have I read a book that evoked such emotions. John T. Wills possesses the ability to transport the reader directly into the life and struggles of his main characters story. I was educated in a way that did not afford me the benefit of truly understanding the significance of the historical events taught from a stand alone perspective. This book actually touched my heart and inspired me to increase the equity in my "dash"! Excellent -- Tonja Covington

Wishing you the blessings of peace, joy, and success…

Edna Little Fish In Running Waters Spring I wooould love to be your friend, Nadia.
You and I have the same person as an Inspiration: Maya Angelou!
