This 5-star review made me smile!

I love when a new reader finds my books! Someone posted this 5-star review this week on OUR FRAGILE HEARTS!
What a wonderful story that will have you on the edge of your seat on an emotional roller coaster. Rachel discovers she has a 5 year old sister when they let her know her mother has died. Piper has had a perfect childhood, so different from her sister Rachel who went into foster care as a young girl. As the sisters get to know each other and build their life together they meet Mary, a lonely woman who has had a difficult early life and is now happy to share her time and money with these two sisters. With the threats of illness, a drug dealing father who wants custody of Piper and other realities of life this book is so well written and holds your interest on every page. I've never read Buffy Andrews before but this story has me curious about her other books. Have your hankie handy but you'll also smile as these three love, laugh, and live.

'Our Fragile Hearts' gets 5-star reviews on publication day today!


Today is publication day for Our Fragile Hearts! WOOT!  I am so nervous about reviews, but the first two I received were 5 stars! Here's what the reviewers had to say:

Once again, Buffy Andrews has hit a homerun with Our Fragile Hearts and I just loved it!! It touched my heart in so many ways. The three main characters each have their own personal struggles but collectively they give in ways that help each other through. It is beautifully written and is one that I could not put down until I had read every single word! There is a realization that sometimes in our brokenness we are overpowered by the comfort and strength we find by helping others. And, there are a few “OMG” moments that were total shockers, which is the epitome of a well written book!! I highly recommend this novel, as well as all of Buffy's other books, as each and every one are wonderful and memorable experiences! - Sharon Weed

I absolutely fell in love with Mary and Rachel, and especially little Piper. Mary and Rachel both have survived so much adversity, and kept their heads held high. As a mother, I immediately felt my heart clench when I read Mary's story. Rachel has been through even more, in some ways, because she was raised not knowing who she could depend on. Growing up in foster care is no picnic. Yet, Rachel survived. When she was told that she must raise her sister lest Piper end up in foster care as well, Rachel rises up to the challenge. This story is full of hope and love, and eventual peace. It is one to remember for a long time to come. - Jennifer Muncy

Here's a sneak peek at OUR FRAGILE HEARTS.



Prologue

Mary


June 30, 1957
I hate Mother. I hate Father. They’re sending me away. They said I brought shame to the family, that no decent man will want me. They have forbidden me to see Teddy. He doesn’t know I’m carrying his child. He thinks I don’t love him. My life is over.
Love, Mary Katherine

I lay in my hospital bed trying to remember. I remembered the cold, sterile delivery room and the doctors and nurses dressed in white and wearing masks. 
(image)I remembered seeing the delivery table and the bassinet, the sterile towels and drapes and rubber gloves. I even remembered seeing the scissors and string the doctor would use to tie my baby’s umbilical cord.
But I didn’t remember seeing my baby.
Buffy's picks: Interesting reads for March 18


1. This baby goat lost his back legs but keeps motoring along. A tearjerker video that beautifully captures Izzy's journey. Meet Rory who adopted her and rescue dog Piper who she cuddles her.  

(image)Dust Bunnies2. If you're into zombies you're in luck! The Walking Dead attraction is coming to Universal Studios Hollywood.

3. You go girl! 90-year-old woman earns Ph.D. Yeah! You'll never too old to learn.

4. Check out my marshmallow Peeps Expressions!  Who says you can't play with your food!

5. I love innovation, which is why I love this Turtle on a Skateboard!  

6. And I love happy endings and dogs so this video is a win-win!  Speaking of dogs, I love this idea of a dog sharing service for those who'd love a canine companion but can't  commit full time.

Have a super weekend!
