Rita from one of my favorite blogs, “From Pemberley to Milton” posted her favorite reads from 2023. My book, Field of Dreams, was at the top of her list. WOW!!! I’m gobsmacked! For those of you who followed my progress of the story on Facebook, you will know that my mother unexpectedly died two weeks after I wrote Mr. Bennet’s death scene. She died from the exact same cause. Emotionally, I was driven to finish the story. However, I would sit at my computer and cry. Finally, our daughter Jennifer Joy, Nicole Clarkston, and Christina Boyd came to my rescue, giving me the exact encouragement I needed. Thank you all! Oh my! I believe I am crying happy tears.
