  • Your Feedback

    ‚ÄúI started reading "A Widow's Awakening" on Sunday and finished it Monday. The first third of your book touched me in ways I hadn‚Äôt anticipated. I cried so hard my eyes became swollen; the pain was so real. I haven‚Äôt cried that hard in a long, long time. The grief you expressed was so real to me, as I experienced (my own grief) in a similar way. Reading your book has been healing for me.‚ÄĚ - Cristy H, Calgary, AB
