|It was fun to read of places where I am from in the central Michigan area. I would recomend this book to anyone as a refreshing break. I enjoyed it and feel that she did a great job writing it.|
|Teenage Forgiveness Feb 8, 2007|
|Hallie's Heart is a refreshing story of a troubled teenager and a loving Aunt who reaches out to help Hallie in life's situations. Written with suspense and beautiful verbal articulation; a novel which depicts God's forgiveness and love. Hallie's Heart calls for another episode!|
|fresh fiction Jan 22, 2007|
|This first novel by Beach is filled with fresh characters and events and details. Beach tells a serious tale with a winsome touch of humor. When I finished the book, I hugged my oldest son who just happened to be walking through the room. The good and courageous relationships in this book left me wanting more of that in my own life. And Beach better start writing--I believe there's more of Mona and Hallie's story to be told. I'm left ready to read it!|
