As I drove the totally gorgeous highway between Nashville and Knoxville yesterday, my agent called with thrilling news. MIRACLE ROAD is number thirteen on the New York Times printed list.

 I cannot tell you what an exciting moment that was for me. Yes, I've made the times in the past, but always on the extended list--never in the top fifteen, which is what really counts. And the fact that I'd dedicated this book to my late mother makes it all the sweeter.

What a wonderful end to the first leg of my road trip. I flew home last night and found this waiting for me from my husband and the Grad.


Let me take this moment to say a truly heartfelt thank you to all of your readers for supporting this series and falling in love with Eternity Springs. You are the best!

 Now, I'm taking the day off. :)
