Holding On to Love, an illustration by Christine J. Head

       We hope that Pieces Of My Heart will make a difference, both to those who read it and for those groups who will be selling it as a fundraiser. Many of our readers have been profoundly touched by Pieces Of My Heart :

  • "Thank you for putting into words what I feel in my heart."
  • "Don't read it in public or you'll make a laughing, crying fool of yourself!"
  • "Finally, James Herriot has a successor."
  • "I believe that a well-placed word and a good example are the most powerful tools of change we have available. Keep up the good work."
  • "My god, I've never read anything so poignant and touching in my life."
  • "Your heartfelt words will touch many and hopefully save many wonderful lives...My babies and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts for sharing."
  • "What a gift you have given to animal lovers everywhere by writing this... Now it is our job to see that it makes a difference."
