I woke up to some blessing this morning. Robin Lee, who wears Amazon’s coveted “TOP 500 REVIEWER” badge, has read “My Mother’s Shadow” and given it a 5-star review. You can see the book’s review page here: http://amzn.to/157JyBC.

Thank you so much Robin, for the professional and unsolicited review.

Wow, “My Mother’s Shadow” Receives a 5-Star from an Amazon Top 1000 Reviewer

Like Forest Gump said, life is a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get next.

I don’t know why but I decided to check on my book My Mother’s Shadow after lunch and, boy, was I surprised! The first review has just been posted under the book and it was form A Navy Vet…VT town, an Amazon Top 1000 Reviewer, giving it a solid 5 stars and calling it “Powerful!”

The review reads, “A powerful short story that speaks large volumes in a few words. It speaks of racism, discrimination and segregation without being ‘preachy’.

“In synopsis (without a spoiler) there are people that cast no shadows. These are the ones that are discriminated against by the powers to be.

“Most highly recommended.”

Thank you, A Navy Vet…VT town!

The following is the review Robin has posted on Amazon, verbatim:

I downloaded this book to read with my niece…School is over but this has been a topic the teachers have been talking to the students about in her class the last few weeks….This story about the “Cicada Bug” and it’s life cycle is adorable..It’s the easiest way to explain to little ones about these very large and loud bugs with big red eyes that they may be scared of…Especially, when they start hearing the shrilling sounds, or finding one lying on the ground…Beautiful, bright colored, large illustrations showed up really nice on her kindle….Plus the story rhymes, which are her favorite type of books and make her giggle….

The story starts out with a baby nymph, crying underground knowing she is now 17 yrs old and wishing she could be a beautiful butterfly instead….She knows once she changes she will be ugly and scary looking to people…This will show how cute they really look and how harmless they really are…The “Cicadas” tell children they more scared themselves because of natural predators like termites and birds….

This sweet book will show you that a “picture is worth a thousand words…..My niece loved it…..I highly recommend this book for all children…..
