Thanks for the early Christmas present, Wayne.

Got mine and can't wait to read it. Just finishing up another book this morning. Thanks for the early Christmas gift.

Well I'll be up all night!

Starting on my book 📖 after Christmas. Don’t have much time until after Christmas. Thanks for a good Christmas present.

Wow! Just finished, my opinion, the best installment to-date. So many things I'd like to comment on but I don't want to spoil it for anyone. Thank you so much, can't wait for April.

Whew what a read! Just finished it this morning. Another fantastic chapter in Jesse's life. I think I might take Rufus' line about storm's, print it out and hang it where it will be a reminder everyday. Thank you and can't wait for the next book.

Thank you, the best early gift!!

Thank you for a fantastic Christmas gift. I found the book in my kindle at 5:00 pm and couldn’t put it down. I read straight through til 11:30 it was wonderful. I loved the story line and the visit from Tank Every time I think you can’t do a better book than the last you prove me wrong.Merry Christmas to you and all your family sincerely. Candylady

Just Read! It was one of Wayne’s best, very touching and hart felt, with a lot of Marine fight.

Keep up the wonderful storytelling! This was one of your best yet. Merry Christmas to you and your family.

This was AMAZING Read it on a flight back from Florida...it actually made me tear up in spots so so good...hoping this is leading up to a new Charity book too?? April is a long way away for next one!
