This morning I did not turn the computer on at once—wanted a few spare moments of quiet to reflect and think before I got into the business of the day. When I did dial into the world, I discovered a most outrageously compassionate, well-written, and deep-thinking review of You Are My Only, penned by Serena Agusto-Cox, a reader, writer, poet, and mom who advocated so fiercely on behalf of this book, even long before she had read it. True faith—oh so rare, and so appreciated. Serena was one of the YAMO Treasure Hunt winners, and so I have had the pleasure now of reviewing her own work. She has Facebooked and believed and conducted giveaways—even invited me to participate in a YAMO interview—the only YAMO interview on record (please check back later today for that).
I don't have the capacity to fully state how much this kind of support has meant to me—how much it means to any author. But I will share just a few words of Serena's review here, with the hope that you will visit her blog and find out more about what she reads and how she sees:
You Are My Only is an emotional powerhouse drawing redemption out of the shattered pieces of lives rendered asunder by a single event. Through faith and love these characters can begin the heal, rebuild, and flourish. What more could readers ask for? Stunning, precious, and captivating from beginning to end.Thank you so much, Serena.
