As a Dallas seventh grader, she remembers a homework essay on ‘What will you be doing in 2000?’ Looking into the future, Caryl saw herself as an inter-galactically famous author, streaking from planet to planet signing books.

It hasn't gotten the readership I'd expected, but I also think getting books 2 and 3 written and out there will HELP.

Book two is started, but historical romances keep calling my name :) BLESSINGS and THANKS for the reviews! (less)

“new day, it all came back to the fact that he did not have a relationship with God. He’d already be up, and she trembled with the thought of seeing him again. How crazy was that? As if she could just walk blissfully to an altar and say, ‘I do.’ He had come all that way. Said he would’ve followed her to the ends of the earth. Still, just as her mother before her, she couldn’t. Not with a non-believer. How true that the generations repeated. Her dear sister had paid a high price for disobedience. Mary Rachel had suffered for her bad choice...though God redeemed her in the end.”
