Mira I first read "Garden Spells" on recommendation from a teacher at a school book fair. She claimed it was a feel good book. She was so right! Since then I've read them all. "Garden Spells" was one of my book club's selection and now all the girls are in love with your books. Your books are one of the few select that I pay full price for at the book stores. That's how much I like them and you. When is your next book coming out?
