Thank you so much, everyone who read and responded so openly to the last post. I wish I could send a book to every single person. I hope people will take the time to go back to it and read the comments. Maybe they will remind you, as they did me, that often we have no idea what others we meet have survived–or are going through, even when we meet them casually in the grocery store or post office and say, “How are you?” and they toss back, “I’m fine, thanks.” People have so much courage we don’t know about, don’t they? These are the people I like to write about in my novels, the ones somehow mustering the strength to go on, to make life work. I have emailed Lois Becker, Kathleen Peterson and Leigh Nichols, and each will receive an inscribed copy of The Testament of Harold’s Wife. More giveaways will come. Thank you so much, again, for your honest sharing. I’ve responded to every comment in the last post, as I always do.
