Re: The Girl Who Came Home
What a wonderful, yet heartwrenching story to be kept alive by someone whom I'm sure has really put their heart into this book!! It doesn't contain the fluff of Hollywood. It contains the events, as they happened, and these are the types of books that I truly enjoy reading. They're a part of History, and I can't thank the Author enough for writing it!! I will definately put this book on my TBR list, and I'm sure this is one book I will be sharing with others. I share in your loss, and can't thank you enough for writing it!!

My heart melted. This is a must read for me and I can hardly wait. Stories from the heart are always the best,
but bittersweet sharing. Thank you Hazel.
