Smashwords book reviews by Lois D. Brown

  • All I Want on April 06, 2011

    I loved the feel of this story, and I adored the characters.
  • True Miracles with Genealogy: Volume One on May 07, 2011

    This was one of the best reads I've had in a long time. It is a collection of short, real life experiences that have happened to people while doing family research. I loved reading it on my Kindle, cause I could get in a few stories while waiting for my kids to get out orchestra, etc., and it was a great pick-me-up. Great job!
