Sandra Byrd, Bon Appetit

“I felt free this time, knowing I had a job and that I wasn't going to be graded. I could simply experiment and create. The thought occurred to me that if I always lived under the certainty of God's provision instead of the certainty of Lexi's worry, I might always feel this free.”
Sandra Byrd, Piece de Resistance

“My mom would never ride an ATV,' he said. 'But you did.'

'Is that a good thing?' I asked.

He traced my lips with his fingertip. 'Yes.'

My body melted like a candy bar on the dashboard.”

Alice thanks so much for friending me!
I am SO excited about your next Ladies in Waiting book coming out in June!!!! I can't wait! I stayed up til 12:30 last night to finish To Die For; it was SO good! I felt like I was THERE on the Tower Green and almost burst into tears when Anne had her head taken and Meg had to be the one to wrap it up. :'( VERY well written! *****


Nicole Thanks for the friendship, Sandra! My sister is a huge fan of your books and I'm really looking forward to reading them myself!
