A few favorite reviews!

 The Path of the Child:                                                                                                  Fantastic book and lots of emotions!  This book was very empowering and certainly inspirational. I recommend it to anybody that wants an inspiring read, or likes a good tearjerker book.  Anthony Kummer – Amazon

 The Path of the Child:                                                                                                      Great Story This was a wonderfully written story of courage and resilience of spirit. Highly recommended reading. Susan – Amazon

The Path of the Child:                                                                                                     Adding this book to my UnPutDownAble shelf!   What I liked about this book was everything. It is a debut novel and some of the best books I have read are debut novels. I don’t think I have ever read anything like this before.   Kathy LeJune – Amazon

 Who’s That in the Cat Pajamas?                                                                                             I absolutely love this magical story! An excellent read for children of all ages! This magical adventure will sure to be a delight to all who read it. Lindsey – Amazon

A Gratifying Coming-of-Age!   Throughout my reading of this story, my mind kept playing the refrain of book title, ‘A Tree Grows in Brooklyn,’ for its pervasive themes of loneliness and resilience. My review for ‘The Path of the Child’ is based on what I deem a perfect fit for the genres of Young Adult and Coming-of-Age in addressing the theme of resilience.     Eva Pasco – Amazon

Path of the Child is almost equal parts heart rending and heart warming. Our heroine 17 year old Melanie, is an instantly identifiable and sympathetic character, and on reading her plight, you cannot fail to root for her. From the first pages you’ll be sucked into a truly engaging story.  Dean Baker – Goodreads

31 Days of October:
Great collection of stories  I really enjoyed it it was a great collection of stories. My favorite was the addiction to Halloween candy and the underlining mysterious about it a really great writing can’t wait for More.  Diana Golding – Amazon

Who’s That in the Cat Pajamas? is a 5-star read and should reside among other classics on your children’s bookshelf. Sherrie Marshall – Amazon
Who’s That in the Cat Pajamas?:
The illustrations in the book were cute, colorful, and fit the story perfectly. The writing was on par with the reading level for the target age range and evoked magical images to captivate the reader. I’d recommend this book to parents with kids between 5 and 12 years of age- not just for the kids to enjoy, but also the parents. Leigh Holland – Amazon 
Who’s That in the Cat Pajamas?
This children’s book is beautiful and fanciful. It allows a child to exercise their imagination (something that is sorely needed in today’s world), through the use of a magical fairy as the pivotal protagonist. Anne Carmichael Author – Amazon
Who’s That in Cat Pajamas?:
McConnell has outdone herself this time and I highly recommend this book to anyone – young or old – if you’re looking for something fun to read. Sian Claven – Goodreads

The Path of the Child:                                                                                                               “I refuse to be a person that cannot move forward in life due to the chains of their childhood.” 
Reading this book made me feel so good inside, and I really mean it. It was a heart-touching story which grabbed me from the first few pages and I had a hard time putting it down.   Alp – Goodreads

Who’s That in the Cat Pajamas?:
How lovely to slip back into innocence and read a book about a helpful fairy. The first book in The Dolcey Series is sure to entrance young readers around eight or nine. It was delightful, full of creativity and magic. Amazon customer

 The Path of the Child:                                                                                                                I would be delighted to see a sequel for each of the main characters. There is so much going on with each of the characters that could justify an original Netflix series. All of this, and it this author’s first novel. Chris – Amazon
