Summary: (Barnes and Noble) highly recommends Jewels Treasured by Her Family. Filled with a unique reality, imagination & humor, it is a must for readers, young and old. -Dorothy Lafrinere, Editor & Creator of I was hooked after the first couple of pages. The author has a unique way of bringing the characters in her book alive, making it an enjoyable read. -A. W. Nutter, Author of Daddy’s Game and Shimmer A wonderful book filled with stories inside of stories. Fanciful, heart-warming and intriguing, I highly recommend it to readers of all ages. -Susan Beth Nemitz, Author of Yours Truly This book takes the reader into the life of the Flynn family from the eyes of the youngest, Beth. The family is so real you will feel that you have met them on the street or at the store. A very good read any age would enjoy. -Maryann Nooner, Avid Reader/Writer/Author/Book Reviewer I didn’t want to leave the loving atmosphere of the Flynn ranch, and as each page turned I was more captivated by this story. The reader feels deeply for the Flynns as they face each obstacle that defines their lives. I found myself rooting for them to conquer each of those obstacles and to see that the love of family is all you need to face anything in life. -BJ Myers, Author of Justice is Served A story that everyone should read, it seems so real you feel as if you were being swept off you feet, becoming one of the characters. It is more than a great read; it is one of the best. -Tabitha Robin, Author of The Burning Bush

My thoughts: I thought this book was written incredibly well. I was not what I expected to be reading at all but defiantly well worth it. The plot was amazingly unique and the writing flawless. I have never before read a book that flows through so easily. I am not saying this was the best book I have ever read, but it was written the best. That’s saying a lot with how many books I have read and loved. I am very happy that I was able to chat with Julia and that she was able to send me a copy.

Recommendation: This is a really great book for coming of age. I would hand a copy to my 12 year old sister because I think that it would be a great, important story for her to read.

I’m reading: Isabelle’s Boyfriend
