I laid in bed and cried when **spoiler** and I can't wait to finish the book tonight (I'm at the part where **spoiler** and EJ has **spoiler**. I look forward to starting Trouble with Water just as soon as I finish the 1st book. I am a library science student so my reading time is limited, but I manage to squeeze it in. I hope you get to NC soon. I would love to see you again. BTW, I love your artwork. Do you sell any in NC? Take care and God bless you in all you do! Thank you. Crystal

Pat Conroy is my all-time favorite author, with Sue Monk Kidd also on the list, so Pat's endodorsement and your publisher's comparison to Kidd are enough to sell me!

My husband's great,great grandparents lived on Daufauskee Island.

As a recent transplant to the area (well, sort of!) that you're writing about, I'm looking forward to it! In fact, I'm gazing out my office window towards Dafuskee Island as we speak...

~Kim Wilson , GA~ March 10, 2008

I have not read any of your books yet but I am always looking for new authors to read since I read at least 7-8 books a week. I also collect autographed books. Thanks for considering me for your book give-away.

~Betty Paysour , NC~ March 10, 2008

Please enter me into your contest. I found about it through AuthorBuzz.

~Connie Brand , IL~ March 10, 2008

Trouble the Water sounds like a fascinating story of three strong women. We need to hear these types of stories, to gain strength from the experiences of other women. And being a Northerner, I enjoy a story set in the South. I must have been a Southerner in another life, because I feel so at home here. Warmth and compassion come to mind. And the cover art work is gorgeous! Thanks for writing this story -- I look forward to getting lost in it.

~Mary Clark , PA~ March 10, 2008

I am happy to become acquainted with you through Suzanne Beecher's book club

~Elizabeth Chadwick , GA~ March 9, 2008

If this is half as good as Spirit of Sweetgrass, I'm going to love it! Thanks for taking us back down to the Low Country!
PS I'm already on the mailing I need to add myself again?

~Margie Rogers , MO~ March 9, 2008

I have girlfriends from Virginia that have passed along my suggested "Secret Life of Bees" book, and they've all been unable to put the book down..... I look forward to finding a book to pass on to them as their next read! I'll check out the signing in Mt. Pleasant!!!
