"The most powerful, uplifting and spiritual book I have ever had the pleasure of reading! Gem's story touched my heart and soul, and gave me an extraordinary feeling of peace." ~ Kathy Williams, publisher of I Survived / Thorns of Two Roses
"This book is a delight. Written in almost a hypnotic lyricism, it tells the story of trying to find meaning on the path of life. I find it difficult to express the joy that I had in reading it. I have a hope, indeed a feeling that Gem's Story will become a classic, revered and enjoyed by young and old." ~ Dawn Akyürek, UK, English Literature Teacher
"I'm a great admirer of Gem and have a lot of respect for her wisdom. I resort to this book at times of inner unrest, when I need some peace of mind, or need to commune with people I really care about. I can't come up with any adjective good enough to describe the benefit and positive influence that Gem's story can bring into one's life." ~ Renuka Ramesh, India
"In this day and age of action, violence and sex in fiction and video, it's a blessed relief to read something that restores and inspires; that speaks to the soul. Gem's story is a timeless fable, a gentle lesson in finding God, and, yes, a love story -- but not the usual sort of love story. What the two main characters share is very special and rare, but the author imparts the hopeful message that we are all capable of this kind of spiritual love." ~ Francesca H. Kelly, Former Editor-in-Chief of the web magazine Tales from a Small Planet http://www.talesmag.com
"When I had started reading, I didn't stop until I finished the story hours later. I got more and more caught up in it! I found it a very enlightening story. It reflects so many things that I (and surely others as well) struggle with on the spiritual path." ~ Dada Krpasundarananda, Monk and Meditation teacher of Ananda Marga Yoga
"It is a beautiful story and very moving." ~ Janice Knight, Business Manager, Swindon, Great Britain
"Gem's lessons were very helpful to me. I found the lessons in self-esteem and self-confidence that Gem learned very touching. The spiritual dimension of the story is one that will appeal to readers of many faith backgrounds, Christian and non-Christian. I read a quote that stated that once a person reads a book, it forever becomes a part of them, for good or for bad. Gem's story became a part of me for the positive!" ~ Amy Gault Anderson, IN, USA
"When I had finished reading the book I felt light and elevated, as if I had drunk from spiritual nectar. Everyone with spiritual understanding will like this book." ~ John McMillan, Jamaica, Author and multimedia expert
"I think Gem's story is a work of art. It's a blend of psychology, philosophy and spirituality combined with a wonderful talent of writing. Such a sensitivity! I enjoyed it as much as I learned from it." ~ Cimen Keskin, Istanbul
