Here's what other readers have said:
"We have both enjoyed your latest book, "Cause and Conscience," ever so much!
We have talked about it over morning coffee and during tea time repasts,
and because I am a typer, it is my pleasure to put together and summarize
our thoughts. Your books are fun to read and easy to read. You have
a terrific talent for coming up with new situations, new characters
and new conflicts that hold one's interest age after page. It is a delightful
book. We were also especially impressed by the research you have put
into the book to ensure that the scenes and locales have authenticity.
We really felt that we were actually in Santa Barbara and in Alaska.
You convinced us! And your skill at creating a wide variety of interesting
characters is just amazing. It's a real treat to go through the book
constantly being surprised by the variety of people and conflicts. In
short, we loved the book and admire it deeply. We look forward to the
coming events. As Tennessee Williams used to say in conclusion, —En
avant!'" (Hunter) "I really loved "Cause and Conscience." I brought
along "Child Secrets" so I could refresh my memory. You do a great job!
Cannot wait for book number five!" (Lynn)
I just sat down and read/finished your book "Cause and Conscience"
from cover to cover. It was really good. It was great! I can't tell
you how well I think you write. I see how you use yourself so well as
a writer and I'm very impressed and proud of your ability/agility.
Cause and Conscience is a gorgeous book. I was both moved by the characters
and informed by the issues — a very winning combination. And from book
to book in this engaging series of novels, the story continues to move
along in a very satisfying way. This book answered the questions posed
by previous books and raised more questions I can hardly wait to have
answered by the next book. My advice to the author — keep writing!
I tried to stretch out my reading time of Cause and Conscience, but
it was just impossible. I couldn't put it down and I didn't want it
to end! The descriptions are so clear, I feel I'm right there with the
characters. When Susan fell at the unfinished house, I wanted her to
get rescued, but not too soon because I'm convinced the body of the
missing reporter is going to turn up! The adventures Miranda gets into...going
to Alaska and going camping with a man she doesn't know well yet --
pretty brave, if you ask me. It was like going to Alaska myself to read
about the scenery and the people. And that evil Wilhelm Chernak gives
me the shivers. I feel for his wife and I'm just praying she gets away
from him. And I look forward to Samantha's journal at the end of each
novel. She really says some deep things which make me think. When can
we expect Book Five??
