Amazon Reader Reviews for Ashley’s Gift:

5.0 out of 5 starsI found this book gripping and battled to put it down so I could get a few hours of sleep! It was thought-provoking and made me very grateful that my mistakes or lateness never backfired in such a horrific way. I am now going to have to get book 2 to find out how the author is going to complete this story!”

5.0 out of 5 starsThis book caught my attention because it was free. I found it was a great read and the writing is very good. Though it was about loss, it’s very uplifting. I’m looking forward to reading her second book. I hope there will be more in the future. Do yourself a favor and pick up this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars“This story had me on an emotional roller coaster but in a very good way. The writing was expressed exceptionally well, simplistically but vividly. I loved the character Ms. Sullivan and the leading circumstances to which self-forgiveness was taught. Ashley’s Gift has a message for all readers. In one way or another, this story will touch the heart of every human. I look forward to reading the next book from this author.”

5.0 out of 5 stars“There are so many tragedies in life that families experience. Here is a story that will uplift you as you see how life can renew itself even in the face of terrible loss and self-doubt. There is excellent detailing that makes you feel as if this family might be your neighbor or even yourself.”

5.0 out of 5 starsI did not want to put this book down. Fortunately, I had it on my Kindle and my husband would drive so I could continue reading. So many books go on and on and on repeating the same issues over and over again. This book moved along so smoothly with lots going on. I highly recommend it.

 “This novel broke my heart and made me think about the blessings I have and that I should hold family close. It also makes you wonder how you would handle this kind of situation. The lessons in this book are good ones – the love and support of neighbors and loved ones, the diligence we must have as we watch over our children, and the bond we have with our spouse.”

5.0 out of 5 stars“I could not put Ashley’s Gift down. It was riveting. I like the author’s choice of adjectives used to paint the pictures; I could see it all in my mind. I can’t wait for the next book.”

Facebook Reader Review:

“I can’t say enough good about Ashley’s Gift. The book was a true blessing. Forgiveness and healing is something I have had to battle with for many years. Honestly, I so felt her [Jenna Hamilton’s] pain. I will surely recommend this book to anyone and everyone! Forgiveness and healing is such a Blessing.”

“Dianne Marie Andre’s novel, Ashley’s Gift, is a miracle for a world with too few miracles in it. Rich with domestic details from garden to kitchen, the story of Jenna and Robert Hamilton is one that highlights what is most important, what always remains to be found, when we suffer unbearable loss.”
