Kind words...

My publicist at Morrow received the below email from an independent bookseller in western North Carolina. It was so moving that I decided to post an excerpt. Needless to say, it made my week.

"...I received the galley of The Sweet By and By and decided to start asap. I need to tell you a couple of things first -- my mom passed away this February. She was in a nursing home in Savannah. She also was the head nurse at that nursing home for many years. She died of Parkinson's at the age of 74. I would volunteer at the nursing home (middle school) when they had social events to help my mom. Having said all of that, I have to tell you that I'm halfway through the book, and I think that Mr. Johnson has a home run!!!!!! I have laughed, cried, and mainly I'm missing my mom and grandmother."

Just ordered my book from Amazon, and sent the promo info to my friends in Virginia. Now I see from the post that I can anticipate a good cry in missing my mom, who passed away last July. Thanks for that!
