"This book has an authentic, rich, and elegant feel to it. The kind of feel that I've only came across by very seasoned, big name authors... Watching Glass Shatter isn't all tears, it's also very modern and chic... Watching Glass Shatter is about grief, trauma, healing, and family ties that go beyond that of any other family story I've read."
Cathleen Townsend, Author of 'Twelve Tales of Christmas'
