I Love Sally!

What’s in a Name by Sally Cronin

I loved this book by Sally Cronin so much.  I had been awaiting its release since I’d read several of her name stories in her Smorgasbard WordPress Blog.  She took ordinary people and made them fascinating, extraordinary people and made them approachable.  She even made me admire to ethics of an assassin., though somehow that just doesn’t seem right! I do hope Sally intends to get busy and finish out the alphabet!

Amazon Review by Linda Bethea

This review is from: What’s in a Name? (Kindle Edition)

I rushed to buy this as soon as I saw it was released. I have read and loved Sally’s books before and this one did not disappoint. Read it through in one sitting. I loved the crooks and twists. The characterizations are wonderful. Do yourself a favor and grab this one, but I doubt you’ll get much done once you start!

I’m Free by Erika Kind, a Review

I’m Free by Erika Kind is a life-changing read. I have the pleasure of being gifted with an autographed copy by this wonderful lady. The life lessons Erika shares are not preachy or instructional. She teaches by example. I found myself reading, then putting the book down for hours or days to ponder, then coming back after I had had time to put the thoughts in practice. Do yourself a favor, don’t sit down and read this all at once. It is so much more meaningful when taken in bits. I loved this book and will treasure its lessons forever. Thanks so much for sharing, Erika.

 

This is an unsolicited review I posted on Amazon for Erika’s book.  Erika kindly gifted me with an autographed copy when she visited me months ago.  I have pondered and tucked away bits of it in my soul, which I pull out to savor daily.  It’s insights are incredible.  It has lessons for life, not just a lifetimeErika for post

Book Review Tales From the Garden by Sally Cronin

Tales%20From%20the%20Garden%20small-%20CoverI’ve just finished Sally Cronin’s Book Tales From the Garden and it makes me wonder why I ever gave up Fairy Tales just because I got grown..  As you can see by the cover, the photography is wonderful.  Her characters are variously funny, quizzical, magical and heartwarming.  I enjoyed it so much I could hardly put it down, yet didn’t want it to end.  Get it and give it a try!
