I’m happy to announce that children’s book The Origami Nun will be published by Untreed Reads on 8 September and is now available for pre-order at Omnilit Books.
Seven-year old Ruth can’t speak, but that doesn’t mean she can’t think. She knows her birthday is going to be good as her beloved great-aunt has exciting plans for her. What she doesn’t expect is a magical paper nun, an encounter with a bully who may not be what she seems or a school day to remember. Because, before her special day is over, Ruth is in for some very big surprises.
Here are some early reviews:
“What a delightfully written book! This is one I plan to share with my daughter at some point because I think she would like it, too! I love the fact that the author featured a mute heroine, and magic is infused in such a wonderful way. In addition to that, it deals with a subject with which our youth are very familiar – bullying! … I connected with the character, the story, and I enjoyed the magical nature of the story … I hope the author writes several sequels!” [From a 5-star review at My Devotional Thoughts
“I really enjoyed reading this shorter story. The author portrayed the characters well and had a great story line … This is a terrifically inspirational and uplifting story for children and adults alike.” [From a review at The Cover Books
“Magic is in the air. Come see how Ruth and others learn the importance of respect for each other even though they are different and that each person has a different story or reason for being different. I recommend this book for ages 6 and up.” [From a 4.5 star review at Fire and Ice Reviews
