Books Can Change A Life

This morning I received an email from a reader.  As I read the first few paragraphs, tears began to form. By the time I reached the final paragraph, I was sobbing out loud, which startled the hell out of my husband, who shares the office with me.  So, I read it to him:  Susan, I wanted to email you again… Read more →
