From Goodreads: “This book is a very easy read-unfortunately I found this out last night when I started it at 9:30 and finished at 2:30 in the morning.  It has been a very long time since I have read a book in one sitting and even in that short period of time I got very attached to the characters.”~ Liz

Michigan #7!!

VICTORY IN MICHIGAN!!!

Michigan #7

It is with great pride, a full heart, and tears of joy in my eyes that I announce that the Michigan State Senate has finally passed its Holocaust‬ Education‬ bill which now goes to Governor Rick Snyder for a signature!!  Inspired by what we did in PA, MI now has it’s own mandate and is the 7th state in the country to pass such a law!

Thank you to my bff against genocide, the fabulous Professor Susan Bitensky, and her brilliant students at MSU College of Law who worked tirelessly to get this done, and to State Representative Klint Kesto who authored the bill and never allowed it to fall off the radar!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!  7 down and 43 to go!!  Who’s next? ~ Rhonda

Folks are still discovering 94 Maidens!
5.0 out of 5 stars! ‎ A Must Read‬!!  By Ozarkdion on Amazon‬

“I just finished reading 94 Maidens last evening – hard through the tears. . .but such a well written, sad and beautiful sharing of truths, extreme evil and pure goodness. . . a true rendering of a family and life, death, unimaginable sorrow, written so well – weaving and flowing and connecting the horrible past and the hope-filled future.”

Thank you, Ozarkdion!  Your words are extremely beautiful and your five-star review is so very much appreciated!  Looks like you’re an amazing writer yourself!  I am touched and so grateful!  Thanks again! ~ Rhonda
