Amazon Reviews

Thanks for the Great Reviews on Amazon!

Posted on September 27, 2013

I read every review on Amazon for my debut novel, Sand Dollar: A Story of Undying Love, and it warms my heart to know that I’ve profoundly touched the lives of others through my writing. And lately, the reviews on Amazon have been flying in at a rate of 10 per day, 70 in the last week, for a total of 200 reviews along with an average rating of 4.4 stars (out of 5 stars)! I’d like to thank everyone who has contributed a review. Every little bit helps when you’re trying to break in as a first-time author. And thanks to you, my dreams are becoming a reality.

Love Truly Defined!

Posted on September 16, 2013


“My kind of romance story. God knows our hearts, and provides our needs. To have the kind of love written in this book / ebook, is probably not as rare as we think. For those who actually HAVE this kind of love… treasure it! Life is but a vapor and soon passes away, as Noah teaches us throughout his story, life and love, but also as fragile as a sand dollar.” — Deborah’s Kindle


“This book shows us how to never give up on love.”

★★★★★  Awesome in every way

“I read this book overnight as a birthday present to myself. I could relate to this story as I too like everyone else have that one true love that got away. For many years I dreamt of him, looking for him where I first met him in the old Sears building downtown Charlotte. I would see him and call him but he never responded. Dreaming was the only way I kept him alive.”


“If you LOVED The Notebook, you will, with no doubt, LOVE Sand Dollar!”

“If someday you should ever think of me and miss me, know in your heart that I’d want you to find me once again. No matter how distant in time or space..FIND ME.”

“We don’t choose love…love chooses us.”

If you LOVED The Notebook, you will, with no doubt, LOVE Sand Dollar! This book had me at page one and did not let me go. You hear the love story spanning 60+ years between Noah and Robin from Noah’s POV. The narration of this book is flawless!

The story opens with Noah at his wedding, and Robin shows up after many years. That first chapter is heart grabbing, emotional, tearful!

“I wanted to hate you so bad, but I couldn’t stop loving you long enough to hate you. If there were any way I could have erased your memory from my brain, I would have done it in a heartbeat. But not a chance of that…not with my heart refusing to let go. I would have given my left lung just to hold you in my arms for one more day, just one day. Thirteen years, and not a day gone by that I didn’t pray you’d come back, look into my eyes, and say the words that you just said to me.”

Noah was a born romantic. He always wanted a wife, a woman to love, a woman to love him, his soul mate! He believed in this and when he met Robin he knew he had found that perfect woman!

“For me, I guess it was kind of like trying on different pairs of shoes. You know…until you try them on and wear them for a while, you really don’t know if they’re going be a good fit. But I wasn’t looking for just any woman; I was searching for one in particular–my soul mate. I had no idea where to find her, but I knew one thing for sure: I’d know her when I see her.”

“No one else ever looked at me that way before–or after for that matter. The connection in our eyes, the window to our souls, couldn’t possibly be any stronger. Yeah, I had found my soul mate all right, and my life would never be the same.”

As you become engrossed with Robin and Noah’s love for one another, you will be cheering them on. You will become mad at Robin. You will become frustrated with Noah and all his “too nice” tactics. You will never stop fighting for them to make it.

“Why do you keep looking at me like that?” he asked.

“Because you give me butterflies.”

“I know what you mean. When I look at you looking back at me like that…I get them too.”
My heart ached, my heart healed, my heart pounded for joy. Their is huge amounts of emotional investment in this book and every damn word is worth it!!

“Stay…so every morning when I open my eyes, you’ll be the first thing I see. Stay…so everyday when I’m with you, I can show you all over again exactly how much you mean to me. And stay…so every night when you lay your head next to mine, you’ll know…you’ll know just how much you’re loved.”

Noah’s love for Robin never stopped and even though Robin had to fight some inner demons her true love for Noah never left.

“I guess what I’m really trying to tell you is…we loved each other’s souls, and as long as we had each other, we were happy. And in the end, that’s all that really matters.” — Sara

“It is well worth reading, even if you have to shed a tear or two.”
