More About the Author

In my novel Twelve Houses, I tell the story of a widow who discovers that her life story is far from over. Amelia is a brave woman who struggles to find her true place in the world and at the same time to create a life that holds spiritual meaning and purpose. Though my first book, Borrowing My Mother's Saints, was a comedy set in New York, I think both books describe a similar spiritual journey. I always consider the spiritual aspects of a character's story as I write.
I love to hear from my readers in Amazon reviews and Facebook.

I read this book in only 2 days (with a 5 year old at home, believe me, it is not an everyday accomplishment), I just couldn't stop reading !! It is funny, light, entertaining, with great message.

The characters are very well defined and the story just got you trapped.
Good Work !

I can't wait to read Olga's next Book !

After good reviews I decided to give this one a try. Story is pretty good, but the four letter words, especially the 'f' word used several times in the 20% I have read so far plus the obvious fact she sleeps around have made me decide not to finish it....too bad, because I was looking forward to it. All the turn-offs for me are so very unnecessary--and the reason I choose not to read anything but Christian fiction. And this doesn't t qualify. Sorry.

Amazing book - I enjoyed every word of it. Julianna did not want to listen, she was marching to her own beat! Well worth the download and read - Highly recommend.

Pretty Julianna DiSantis had it all, success in the advertising industry, great clothes, money, a Manhattan address and an equally successful boyfriend, Michael. Or so she thought. Just when she is totally engrossed in riding the crest of the wave, she is almost drowned in one bad event after another, leaving her at rock bottom, living on fumes. Workplace politics and back stabbing cost her her job and credibility, which means she won't be able to keep living large. Her boyfriend dumps her and worst of all, her mother, is diagnosed with breast cancer. In doing one small act of kindness for her deeply religious mother, she is reminded of her childhood, her favorite nun and the power of the saints. Can Julianna find the strength she needs to face her demons, pick up her life, lend support to her mother AND rebuild her own crumbling life? Will she learn to follow her heart before it's too late?

Within the pages of Borrowing My Mother's Saints, Olga G. Soaje has woven humor and pain together with love, added a few threads of humility and giving along with a good dose of backbone and created a warm, endearing and uplifting masterpiece! Her characters are dimensional, fresh and realistic, their dialogue and thoughts can make you laugh or have you reaching for the tissues, all in the same scene. Chick Lit at it's best!

Very nice story. I enjoyed it very much. I loved the stories of the saints mixed with the job troubles and the love discovering journey. Just found one typo: "in lue of" instead of "in lieu of".

Delightful read; as someone familiar with the live of saint I could understand well the intended purpose of the chapter. I liked the it dealt with issues like breast cancer, family obligations, motherly devotion and sacrifice even in the middle of suffering. Conrad
