The Essence Recommended Read


Wow! I'm over the moon with joy! This feature opens with:

"Carleen Brice's Orange Mint and Honey, a new novel about real mama drama, will have you hooked from page one. Taking on the fabled mother-daughter bond, the Denver author confidently strides onto terrain many lesser writers have tripped over--with winning results."

Yes, but I love the part where they say, "She [Brice] hopes readers will see the potential for healing in their own families and begin to see forgiveness in a new light." It sure worked for me. Thanks for a wonderful read, Carleen. M

Wow. Congratulations!

I just finished reading the new book by Patry Francis. Loved the feel of it, the words, the font, and the paper. Orange Mint and Honey is next. Then Souvenir. Thanks for the reference to that in your other posting. My first time to her blog and I'm loving it too.
