Sweetie’s Song: The Meadows of Heaven is a book that will enchant its readers, whether children or adults. It is a heartwarming, family friendly story that has an underlying message that will resonant with even the most jaundiced and world-weary among us. Some readers have called it a "children's book for adults, a simple, beautifully told story that has meaning on more than one level and resists easy interpretation."
"I don't read a lot of fiction books so I didn't know what to expect with this one but I was more than pleasantly surprised. The short review is, it was simply and completely delightful ..." - Book Review, Cheryl Cope, Christian Women's Life Coach, CherylCope.com
"Sweetie’s Song … is a whimsical tale of how three stuffed bunnies and an abandoned teddy bear change the lives of a grieving couple. The author brings to life Buddy, Sweetie, Mr. Big, and Bear, who will delight any reader with their adventures, unique personalities, and quaint reasoning. This is a wonderful tale for any age group bringing with it a warm smile and child recollections of home and that special stuffed animal we all once held and loved. A highly recommended read." Award winning author: Tamera Lawrence
"Though its premise sounds whimsical, Sweetie's Song is sensitive and surprisingly touching, with echoes of the children's classic, The Velveteen Rabbit in which a toy yearns to become Real through the love of his young owner." - Book Talk, Ohio.com
