Connie (Ava Catherine) Heather, thank you for accepting my friend request. I have just completed The Weight of Silenceand truly loved it. Calli was so alive for me from page one! All of the characters were important to me, but Calli leapt from the pages of the book and walked around with me. Thank you for such a stunning book that highlights a very real problem for some of our children and mothers. I look forward to reading your other books.

Donna Heather,
Thank you for friending me on Goodreads. I just finished reading One Breath Away. It was a real page turner. I couldn't put it down until I got through with it. I am now reading These Hidden Things.
Donna


Samantha Capps Can't wait until tomorrow to get the new book! I already have it pre ordered on my nook. Heather, you sure are doing a wonderful job in keeping me interested in ready. If it weren't for Kristin Hannah, Nicholas Sparks, and you there would be a lot of searching for books.....I know without a doubt if the 3 of you write something, it is going to be wonderful!!!


Shannon Rochester It's funny. When I read These Things Hidden, I was living in Las Vegas and had no idea that my husband was about to get offered a job in Iowa. I just finished The Weight of Silence and it was very cool reading about places that I now know about. :)


Samantha Capps I can't wait until Friday to get my book!! I am excited that they decided to release it this week instead of next week!! Hope you are taking a little bit of time to breath Heather!!!!
