Editorial Reviews

Kathy Hill
Sometimes There's a Dove is filled with wonderful accounts of a child's simple life. Tales of fishing, climbing trees, ghost stories, and new love were touching and well described....
Leslie Hegwood
While her parents travel the country desperate to find work in the middle of World War II, Clair and her three siblings see every day as an adventure with fishing, dirt-dobber catching and playing catch on the daily list of things to do....
Rita Porter
Told from Claire's perspective, Sometimes There is A Dove contains some humorous antics common to all kids and memories from an era gone by with a slower and seemingly safer pace of life.

Meet the Author

Cynthia Ward is a self-taught Mississippi artist and writer who overcame a severe learning disability called dyslexia. In the third grade, at twelve years old, she made a decision to beat this disabling and painful situation after a special education teacher told her, and her Mother, that she would, 'never read past pre-primer'... She quit school and after a long struggle she learned how to read and write and went on, without any formal training, to earn her diploma.

Against all odds, she went into the field of writing, and challenged all the doubts. Thus making a statement of the undaunting spirit and never ceasing ability to be successful by holding fast to one's dreams. Keeping in mind the motto of her Mother, "How can you fail if you never quit?" she faithfully stayed in the race and now has had her first book, Sometimes There's a Dove, published by Twlight Times Books.
