One Reader’s Thoughts
I really appreciate it when I hear from a reader who has liked one of my books. After all, you put them out there and don’t really know how people feel about them unless they let you know.
A few days ago, a reader named Cindy Embree sent me her feelings about The Hat.
“I just read ‘The Hat’. Thank you. It is beautifully written and the image of the hat helps us to hold on and get through this well known but painful story. Lots of truths in this book. Most of all it is a big reminder of our own injustices and sorrows. Maybe we are a little smug this season as we phrase our own criticisms of US treatment of migrants. We must forever be alert and say no to unfairness. Thanks – can’t wait to share this with all ages. How did you manage to write so gently of such a horrid occurrence – good for you – brings it right to our hearts.”
I could not ask for better feedback than that.
By the way, both of my new novels, The Hat and Something True, are available as e-books as well as paperbacks. In fact, if anyone has Kindle Unlimited, each book is free.
