    What a wonderful afternoon - looking forward to another

    This book brings you back in time and doesn't let you go. I felt like I knew the characters personally. I could almost feel what they were feeling. The biggest disappointment with the book was that it ended so quickly, long before I was ready to let it go. I can only hope to find out what becomes of these wonderful characters in a future book.

    A Great afternoon of enjoyment !

    A Book that once you pick it up you will not put down. Suspense,Romance,and emotion packed that riveted my attention from the first page to the last. Excellent historical fiction that puts you back in the home and heart of the american coal miner's wife. Hoping Ms. Williams treats us with a sequel soon.

    A Touching Tribute

    Powerfully poignant, this insightful story is a tribute to the woman who never let go of their dreams, in the last century or this one! You do not just read Blowin' In The Wind, you experience it!

    Blowin' my Mind

    I was skeptical about reading a new book from an unknown author. However, the powerful imagery from the period and the emotions which were drawn from me, made it seem as I was reading a work from a much more seasoned author. My hats off to Ms. Williams for an excellent effort. I hope she does not become a 'one hit wonder.'
