Blurb - Anita Diamant
"An inspiring, heart-opening story. Please Read."
Blurb - Erica Jong
"Racelle Rosett is the real thing."

"Racelle Rosett lives in 2012 but writes like a timeless angel. If I had to pick someone to rewrite the Bible to make it relevant to my peers, she'd be the first person I'd dial."
