“Very quickly I became caught up in the narrative and was trapped irrevocably with this delicious heroine who was orphaned at a very young age and left alone to cope for her self and not surprisingly made bad decisions that really hurt. Then suffering horrible consequences, she takes control of her life. It is an adrenaline pumping experience where I was loudly cheering her on as SHE began to turn her life around. This is the stuff of Gabriel Garcia Marquez where — carefully crafted and beautifully constructed fiction is irreversibly captivating. This extraordinary and remarkably fabulous narrative has a way of trapping the reader at the edge of his or her seat. To say I could not put the book down is the truth. This is a great experience.I COMPLETELY RECOMMEND THIS FIRST BOOK!” Amazon Review by C. Michael Bennis, Author & Speaker ~ Tucson, Arizona USA
Thank you Mr Bennis for your kind words, encouragement and praise. To be compared to such a writer as Gabriel Garcia Marquez (learn more about Mr Marquez on his IMDb Profile) is to be honored with the highest regard for my writing, and I accept this as not only an honor, but a privilege. You have given me the courage to continue writing, and I thank you, from the bottom of my heart. And, I am so very happy that you enjoyed the book.
Author Spotlight interviewed me recently, and what a bunch of wonderful and professional people they are. Thank you Author Spotlight for the opportunity to chat with you about my book, ‘Cocooning The Butterfly’. You can read the entire interview HERE.
Touching, emotional, and dedicated to home, country, family, and peace – war is inevitable – things must get worse before things can get better. For one family the loss is far too great a burden. They must find the young soldier in the heart of battle, and send him home – three of his brothers have fallen, and his parents need him home. Tom Hanks best film, his heart was visible upon his sleeve as he portrayed the seriousness of the matter – amen. May God keep His soldiers forever in peace.
“Drama, mystery, feuds, sorrow, joy, unconditional love, unconscionable hate and abuse, and healing the heart and soul. Laila Doncaster, you rock; a stellar author.
