“Opening HATTIE the novel is like stepping through a door into something intensely personal… it possesses the intention of her deep need to posthumously re-visit all the events that she could not fully understand in her living journey on earth as a daughter, sister, wife, mother and friend.
In knowing the stories, a reader can understand Hattie’s need to communicate what has shaped her life and how through that process she finds her voice. Hattie’s authentic cadence, and her ability to weave stories makes me realize the arc of our travels here on earth in the search for spiritual peace with self.
Multilayered in message, meaning and language… Hattie’s journey is like a constellation that loses its shape in the dawning light. Just because we can’t see it doesn’t mean it isn’t there, turning, evolving and seeking to become light when the darkness falls.”–Suzanne Lumsden, Amazon Review
