The book, "Just Like Other Daughters" was recommended to me so I read it...and loved it! The ending really got to me because I wasn't expecting it. Now that Alicia has a healthy little grandson and Mark is finally in the picture..."the end"....so my comment is that you need to write a sequel to this book about them. I think everyone would love it!
So glad you liked my book, Mona. And thank-you for taking the time to track me down. A lot of readers didn't like the "abrupt" ending, but (without giving anything away for those who haven't read it) life's milestones are sometimes pretty abrupt. I haven't thought about a sequel-- I've been too busy writing new books. You can check out what else I've written at www.colleenfaulknernovels.com and you can also email me from there. I'm currently working on a new book set in New Orleans called Finding Georgina. Thanks again for contacting me. Writers live such isolated lives. We love hearing from readers. Have a great weekend!
