Here's what early readers are saying:
"If I read a book, it has to catch me right in the
beginning or I won't finish reading it. This book
"caught" me within the first page. Wow!" Jen Moore,
"In HOLDING ON, Lisa weaves her magic flawlessly,
drawing the reader in with deeply wounded, realistically
lovable characters that make you root for their victory
and hold on tight until the tearful, mega-satisfying
end. This is one of the most beautiful stories of
redemption I've had the honor of reading. Keep a box of
tissues nearby. Trust me, you'll need it." ~Award
winning author Karen Wiesner
Just finished this book and loved it! When I first
began reading the story there was so much pain the
character was experiencing, I wasn't sure if I could go
on. The descriptions the author uses to convey everyday
emotions that we all experience was soul-touching. You
could feel it in your stomach as you read.
THEN as I began to see the story unfold, the reality of
the need to face the hurts in our own lives head-on
became clear. The author has captured one woman's story
that shows redemptions from past hurts as not only
possible, but amazingly redeeming! This is a must-read!
I'm only on page 27 and I'm thoroughly hooked! Very
emotional and jerking (nope, not tugging) at my heart
strings...I am enjoying the book immensely! [Lisa] has
captured the emotions so wonderfully and made the main
character so believable! ~Gayle
"I just got done with your book, "HOLDING ON". It was
so awesome. I couldn't put it down...it was a wonderful
book. Please keep me informed on any new books so that I
can get them. I read the first page and it had me
totally hooked!! My daughter said she wanted to read it
after I was done, and I am sure she will love it as much
as I did. Again, thanks for the wonderful book...keep up
with writing as I am looking forward to your next one.
