    I just finished reading A Scrapbook of Secrets and wanted to let you know that I had a splendid time getting lost in the world you created. Telling the story from different perspectives made it a little more thrilling to read, the constant changes in view points and the background of those different ladies that affected their view points made it hard for me to put the book down. I stumbled upon your book at the library when I was waiting in the check out line, the library put it on a shelf featuring Librarian Picks and I am happy to have had the chance to read it. I look forward to reading the rest of the series.

      Thanks so much for your kind words about my book. I can’t tell you what it means to me.
      It’s also good to know that it was a Librarian Pick. Love those librarians!
