"I read it in a day. It is an incredible book. You have an amazing story to tell. Thank you for having the courage to share. I wish that I could have met Liz here on earth. You have honored her. Thank you for showing that one person can make a change. Thank you for being a voice for many others"

“It was mesmerizing and profound. I read in just a few days, even though I am working… Thank you so much for sharing. I think this would be a fabulous movie, esp. with all the race relation issues we have today. It gave me a deep sense of sympathy for what African American people deal with daily throughout their lives….This is the type of book that stays with you for life.”

"Your book.... I couldn't put it down. Can I buy 10 more copies? I got a call from a friend this morning and he was all fired up because he didn't get any sleep last night because he stayed up half the night to finish it!”
Shane K, Great Falls, MT
“2:30AM. That’s when I finished your book last night! Thank you for all the care, effort, and determination you poured into sharing your journey.”

"From the very first pages of this remarkable book, I was captured. The story was told with such intimacy, serving as an instant catapult into the Connor family. I literally could not put the book down. The love of Liz, and how she saved the family was as heartwarming as anything I have ever read. It was similar to The Help, but with much more pathos, insight into the actual lives of Liz and her family and the Black community, and the strength she was able to draw on during the pain she suffered along with her beloved "babies" . Thank you, Todd, for writing such a fantastic read, which will stay with me long after I sadly finished the last page. I would love a sequel. More, Please!"
