Not Again

"It was a fantastic read. I think everyone should read it. It was heart warming as well as heart breaking. But it was such a great story!" ~ Reviewer

Not Again The Fallout

"Love how this story that comes full circle and is full of adversity, hope, love, survival, truth & also those who don't know what God is capable of to find out how capable He really can be through His word, relationships, healing & love. This book is fiction but will touch many lives. Maria, the author, has done an amazing job once again! You won't be disappointed. Love the verses that are reflected and mentioned throughout this book. You may want to read book one before reading book two." ~ Reviewer
