Reviews!!

What a wonderful wondrous month it has been. I still can't believe Song is out there and being read. Sounds obvious perhaps, but not from here -- in this vulnerable, post-publishing silent bubble. Song is in the hands of readers. Joy.  

I've put together quotes and links from reviews. 

Another update soon! Michelle

“This book was so inspiring. At it’s heart, it’s a wonderful Steinbeck-esque tale of trying to make something of yourself and get that small piece of land to call your own.”

“Song is a wonderful tale of survival, friendship, courage and triumph over adversity.  It also has at its heart a tender and heart-warming love story. (It) had me in tears at the end.”
