5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful love story!,
May 19, 2012
This review is from: Who Will Hug the Sun? (In My Sister's World) (Kindle Edition)It took me less than fifteen minutes to read this beautiful story -- perhaps because I got into each picture.
In Spanish the Sun is masculine and the Moon is feminine. I was surprised to read the reverse in English; now I may understand why a car is feminine in the Queen's language.
Do you know what impelled me to buy the book? The title. It intrigued me; the story engulfed this old fellow.
This love story convinced me that Ms Wade knows how to dive into her inner child's fantasies but convey them as the adult she is. The final outcome was excellent.
Grammar and punctuation? Quite flawless.
My congratulations to the sketch artist. (That's me)
- The Perfect Solution-A Suspense of Choices

This was the first book I read by Ms. Wade. I really enjoyed the storyline and felt that the story was real. I sympathized with Catrine, and felt the same anxiety she felt in having her child kidnapped. Even though I never actually experienced that situation, it was one of my biggest fears when my daughter was that age. The story also raised the awareness of mental illness and situations that one who is suffering from the illness may experience. I am late in writing this review on smashwords, but wrote one on amazon. I also read her book of short stories "When One Door Closes" and really enjoyed the follow-up story of Brhin as an adult. KUDOS to you Ms. Wade!!!!!

Ms. Wade, you continue to hold my attention with your stories. What I admire about you is that you take everyday life as a foundation. This story of five women was true to form. You displayed how in everyday life women continue to do what they need to do to maintain their families. I experienced both tears and laughter while reading. I was happy to see those who succeeded in finding happiness, while feeling sorrow for those who lives met with tragedy. What you bring to the table is what I look for in a good read. I will continue to read your work!
- D.N.A. -Nothing Would Ever be the Same

D.N.A. was another example of excellent writing by Ms. Wade. She was able to bring a fairy tale ending to a story full of tragedy. Debney was a teenager living amongst a dysfunctional family. Though her father truly loved her, he lacked the courage to stand up for her until it was too late. Her mother, a typical "gold digger" put that child through things no 17 year old should experience. With all that Debney had to endure while attending school, her pregnancy, and after finding out the truth about her parentage, I'm really surprised she did not have a nervous breakdown. There was a cloud with a silver lining for her at the end and I was glad that she had true friends (one who may have shunned her in the beginning and one who was in love with her) stood by her through the whole ordeal. I enjoyed the ending very much, like I said in the beginning, she had her fairytale dream come true.
