When Hummers Dream - Audio Audio CD – December 1, 2011
I was moved to tears by Mara s story. It is told not only from the artist s perspective, but from the hummer s point of view as well, describing his out of bird experience. :) I love hummingbirds and share my photographs of them in my Sedona Hummingbird Gallery. I adore this story. --Beth K. Hawkins, Hummingbird Gallery, Sedona, Arizona
This novelette took me by surprise. There were so many things going on in such a short story and it made for a marvelous introduction into Purl s Milford-Haven series. Her descriptive way of writing made me taste the lunch, feel the breeze, see the paintings, and hear the hummingbird. A very unique perspective going from the thoughts of the person to the thoughts of the hummingbird I loved it. I m reading this series in order, so I can wait to delve into the next one. --Linda Thompson, The Authors' Show
I loved the painting that you created through words of the garden. I could picture the positioning of every flower & plant. The description of the fuchsia acrobat dancers hanging from ropes, skirts flying and blouses puffed up with air was absolutely WONDERFUL and truly fit! --Sue Batton Leonard, Owner, Cornerstone Fulfillment, Colorado

Although "When Hummers Dream" provides an introduction into the Milford-Haven series of novels, this short story can stand on its own. Right from the first pages, we meet artist Miranda and begin to see the world through her eyes. Actually, I think that is where the magic lies. For those of us that do not possess an artistic gift, this story allows us a glimpse into what that might be like. As she takes in her surroundings and begins to prepare to paint in her favorite garden restaurant, we the readers are ushered into her world and are allowed to experience it with her. When the hummingbird buzzes past, we can almost feel the breeze! Don't hesitate to buy this book -- you won't be sorry.
The painting that she does for the hummingbird that she cares for is the perfect backdrop for this little bird to recuperate in. The discouraging woman and her embarassed husband are no match for the love and care that Miranda has in her heart for the little bird and for life in general.
I think that I'm going to really love the books in the Milford-Haven series. I'm very much looking forward to the first one. It sounds like a delightful place to live and an even better one to read about.
Just about anyone should enjoy this short story.
Thank you for sharing this free e-book. I look forward to the release of your hardcover "What the Heart Knows."
