I am writing this on March 24, and I want to wish you a very happy birthday and many more! You have gifted the world, and me personally, with so many wonderful books. I believe I have read just about every one of them, and reread several of them many times over. It is a comfort and a joy to read your beautiful writing. Your characters have such depth, their struggles are so believable, and your own humanity shines through on every page. Thank you, Mary Balogh!
