“I have finished Lily’s Song, and enjoyed every second. You have told a story with characters that are so authentic; I feel they are a part of my life. Such a reminder that we all have a little good and a little bad and are a product of environment and what we bring with us to this world. Thank you for sharing your talent. I look forward to your next book! As my grandmother used to say after reading something she enjoyed, “those folks were so real, I found myself praying for them!” Prayers for you and all the Wildflowers and Lily’s in the world!” – Martha Snow
