But when a young lady is to become a heroine, the perverseness of forty surrounding families cannot prevent her. Something must and will happen to throw a hero in her way.

Q. Talk about the book that most changed or influenced your life (was it a book that turned you from an average to avid reader, did it help you deal with a particularly difficult situation, does it bring you comfort every time you read it?).

The very first romance book I had ever read is the book that has changed my life the most and helped me through my divorce and becoming a single mom. It was Lynn Kurland's With Every Breath. I was in a not so fun and unhappy place and my mother, who had tried for years to get me to read, shoved this book into my hands and pretty much forced me to read it. And since then I have become what my friends call the "crazy book lady". It may sound a little weird but I don't know where I'd be with out my books. I'm not much of a writer but I'm even giving it a shot and writing my own book.

  1. Glad to have found you via the Hop!

  2. Hello! Happy weekend. :D

    I'm glad you found the book to help you. It's always nice when you have those. I was helped a lot during my childhood by Harry Potter, and since it was the series that really got me to read, it wasn't a hard choice.
