Susan Mary Malone stated: “I’m really delighted by the reception the book is getting! It’s only been 3 months since it was published, and it looks like the trend is going to continue! When writing or editing a book, the most exciting part is where one shares it with the reader, and in doing so the reader is able to envision all of the twists and turns of the thoughts you put to pages. Look forward to seeing where else the book goes!”
