My Brother’s Daughter is a journey that describes the emotions one endures within a complex family. It reminded me of personal experiences and how hard it is to let go and let God. Once I started reading it, I could not put it down. It is a well written, soul searching read that I feel most people could find beneficial. My husband also found this book interesting, and we both agree it is well written.
I just finished reading your story. It was well written and very touching.
I finished your book, and it brought me tears. Thank you for being so open and honest about your thoughts and feelings. I am glad that you were able to see some of the things that God was teaching you and also that you had wonderful people to support you.
You are a dreamer, as I am. Energy and persistence conquer all things. It takes much courage to imagine what you want in life and then make it happen.

Throughout the book, you kept the reader drawn into the story.
Wow! What a story! My heart hurt reading the things you went through with your father and sister, to the point that I had a stress headache when I was finished from all you were put through.
Wow! Very interesting. You did a super job of letting it all hang out. You really took us along on your journey of life. I felt like I was there with you -- hurt and all. You were so honest.
Read the book in one sitting. Had so many feelings about it -- admiration, sadness, anger.
