Thank you for taking the time to listen and comment, Saralyn! I’m stunned by how many wonderful works by relatively unknown authors are available today (and I mean “unknown” in the not-yet-blockbuster-famous way). A reader’s greatest obstacle, however, is that elusive thing called time (to read them all)!
