From the Author
It is my first book and took me a year to write. We all have one book in us and I felt I just needed to tell this heart warming and true story. Writing a book is a real challenge and one knows it will not appeal to all readers. Of course 'Reviews' will follow some good and some bad. To date I have had 21 Reviews as of September 2012 with an average of 4.2 stars - so I must have got something right. I am pleased that I have written it and hope you will enjoy my efforts. (errors and all!). I say this because we cannot all be word perfect but I have tried very hard to make it a book that you will not want to put down once you have started it. ENJOY!!
