Two recent reader reviews emailed to me:
Wow… I just finished your book [Sweethearts], finally, word for word. I loved it.
Read it at my Mom’s breakfast table every morning while visiting her the last 3 weeks in Nashville.
The story is not only about their romance, but about your 40 years of research.
Not many people could have done all that you did. I don’t know how you pulled it all together, there is so much data you gathered.
I appreciate the Afterward which explained the story from your standpoint. Your husband is very special and patient to put up with all the commitment, threats, and expense you had to endure for this project.
Thank you for all this work. I do hope for a few things:
– a new revised version, or followup book now that the romance is more accepted and more sources have surfaced.
– a book about your life the last 40 years
– that I get to meet you someday! …
Thanks for all that you do.
I am re-reading the 2001 version of Sweethearts and am, again, amazed and captivated by your superb use of language! Somehow you draw me into the story until I become a participant and find myself living rather than just reading it!
The principals are described in terms that make them come alive! and, thus, your readers can become truly involved with them.
You are an exceptionally gifted writer. Thank you for all the effort that must have gone into the writing of this book and the leadership you provide to the Club! Thanks to the latter, I am becoming familiar with one of Hollywood’s most fascinating eras!
Why this e-mail? I just had to compliment you!
I am grateful for your kind letters. Particularly after long hours of writing or working, they really make my day!
