    I'll have to add it to my Kindle reading list. Tell her congratulations on being published. It's very exciting.

    Thanks <3 2, we're very excited about it. Hope you like it. I forgot to mention that it's currently free to borrow for Amazon PRIME members.

    Interesting mix of theologies.

    I for one would be hella proud that my wife was published. I have my writer daughter to fill that role for me...hopefully. Sincere congratulations.

    Oh I am!

    She's been pushing the idea of writing around for several years...this past summer she opened the gates and let the words flow. I've never seen anything like it. Morning has always been a 4-letter word for her, but she was up at the crack of dawn writing...and into the late night - wee morning hours. I've heard of this kind of thing happening before, but it was amazing to see.

    ok - I went through your link & sure enough, found it... I'm a big fan of free books on amazon kindle, but I forked over the $4.99.... but why doesn't it come up in the amazon search as an e-book? weird....

    Sorry about that. It was so new that Amazon wasn't done getting it all settled yet. There are still a few little details to clear up, but we're getting there. I think it should be such that it can be found either way now. Unless you happen to get 'lucky' and hit on one of those remaining little details. Cheers, hope you like it. If you do, we'd appreciate a review. We're depending on word of mouth and social media so far to get the word out.

    We've just learned that Amazon has discounted the book down to $10.81. That's nearly half off. Of course Kindle is still the most economical way to get it, but if you were on the fence about getting a copy in print, check this out before they raise the price. Link on website. http://nataliedwilson.com

    ok... so I'm about a quarter of the way through, and have a mid-read comment about style. I can't decide quite figure out if I'm reading a kid's book, if the author is a Brit, or if she just has a stilted, declarative style... I mean, it's not irritating, but, is it intentional? If the book is intended for young readers, it's fine. If it's intended for adults, it might be something to work on.

    this family spends a lot of time trading meaningful, knowing looks.

    Well, I believe that her intent was to portray the main character and her family, who are British, as being somewhat aristocratic. She may have gone a little too far in that direction to make them seem so. Thank you so much for your feedback! I hope you find it worth the read.

    Thank you SOOOOO much for the Amazon review. Just to let you know, Book 2 is being edited right now with the goal to have it out before Christmas. Book 3 will hopefully be out by early spring at the latest (It's considerably longer than 1 & 2 so editing will take a bit longer, but it's already written). She is doing this all without any outside help except from me on the editing and a couple of her friends on the 'beta' reads. So far it has been very well received by all readers. It isn't even close to my genre and I loved it. Quite honestly, I was blown away given this was her first novel and would barely have believed it had I not lived through the writing process. I think the trilogy is a bit like a rollercoaster, nice big hill in Book 1, smooth sailing...but still interesting in Book 2, Dynamite finish in Book 3.

    Oh, and she's also currently writing a 4th book that started out as the epilogue, but has grown into a book of it's own (with ideas for others about some of the peripheral characters simmering in the back of her mind).

    Please do help us get the word out if you don't mind. We have no advertising budget and are trying to do it through social media, etc. Thanks again, she will be thrilled when I share this with her!
