Consider the Sunflowers, what a hoot

Here's what Marian Schraeder said about my novel Consider the Sunflowers:


I loved your opening line – feeling like liverwurst  in a sandwich – who wouldn't want to keep reading?


The book was full of suspense.

Many times I chuckled at the Plaudietsch (Low German) expressions, nicht, shteefmuttachye, (I really had to study that one) and the characters, Obrom, Adeline, Lottie and more. What a hoot.

I particularly liked the way you closed your book; with an invitation for salvation.  Here is the opportunity for any reader to make that commitment. God bless you for that.

This is the first time I can say that I know the author of the book I have read, outside of The Bible, of course.
