What others are saying about Abigail's Journey:
"I am a 37-year old mother of 4... I just finished reading Abigail's Journey and I would like to thank you for posting it. I have read a few Christian love stories before but AJ's story is undoubtedly the best so far. At first I couldn't wait for the story to finish but when it finally did, I was actually sad to say goodbye to the characters. This is my first time to meet a character like Jake Murphy and reading your book is like really knowing him in person. I felt like I shared his pains (almost made me cry, not just once) and cheered his victories. If there is such a thing as a character coming to life, in my case, this guy did it. It will be difficult for me to forget him... I pray that the good Lord continue to bless you and use you in reaching out His love to others, in the same way He reached out to me through this story." - Dhaye (Philippines)
"Abigail's story is very touching... you had me crying many times... wow, you have a knack for putting your emotions out there...." - Cindy
"I started reading 'Abigail's Journey' sometime yesterday and couldn't stop. I continued reading all night...until 11:00 am, when my eyes couldn't take anymore, partly from the strain of reading, but also from crying every few chapters! I slept 5 hours and started reading again. During chapter 27, a thunderstorm kicked me off the Internet and I couldn't get back online for about 30 minutes. I thought I wouldn't survive the suspense if I couldn't get back online tonight and finish! Well, I just finished and I want to thank you for writing such a wonderful story. It's definitely one of my top 5 favorites of all time! ...." - Karen

I love the characters so much...." - Mandy (North Carolina)
