You’ve been such a tremendous inspiration to me through-out the many volumes of your novels…unfortunately, I’m not an individual who can claim to authorship other than composing my weekly grocery list…In my 87th year I find myself quite transported while reading any, and all of your novels. Your talent is amazing. I quite become immersed in adapting what’s written by you into my younger self…, it’s quite refreshing. I’m a widow now for the past 15 years and following my dear husband’s funeral I took myself back to my reading which I’d neglected while enjoying my husband through his final days…Your writing not only was so enjoyable, but also diverting my grief through-out my mourning, and continues thusly even though his photos stare at me and give me joy as well…thank you Mary Balogh, I just want you to know how you have enriched my life…Even re-reading your books gives me enormous pleasure; especially during these trying times…Please keep up your strength, fortitude and your amazing talent; stay healthy and enjoy your life, your family and your work…again, my many thanks for who you are and what you give to all your many, many readers…!!!
