This book will make you view life with different eyes. I wish that the author had continued the series. Youth and adults have a lot to learn about life. This book will jumpstart your enthusiasm. Do yourself a favor. Read it.
The author writes with her usual excellence. The book grips the reader, holding them captive. Reading this is a gift.


Amazon review of A It Started With a Whisper

Five stars are not enough! A.W. made Stella and Nicky come alive! As Much as I laugh at Mercy Watts, I cried while reading this book! She made me believe I was there with them. I can not put into words how wonderful this book is! If you haven't read The Mercy Watts Series, you can still read Stella, but it would be better to read Mercy! She will keep you on stitches! I am still hoping Mercy has Bled/Lawrence blood running through her! Wait in on pins and needles for both of these series next books
