Well, “the boy”–my boy–is on his way to bootcamp. I’m sure it’s going to be quite a shock to his system, just like it is to everyone. I went a little over thirty years ago, myself, and honestly it was one of the best experiences of my life. Now, I didn’t say it was one…
This short story pulls at the heart strings offering hope in the midst of a trial many face but bury in the past. The thought provoking ending is powerful [and] meant to hold onto the reader long after the reading is done.
Shari McGriff, in a few short chapters draws the reader into the sorrow and shame of a mother’s choice, and then brings hope and forgiveness. McGriff’s writing style is wonderful. In few words she paints emotions on my heart.
A Mother’s Choice is such a thought provoking short story. The author shares a highly compelling story that will touch on every reader’s heart and soul. It’s impossible not to instantly connect with Jane and feel what she feels.
With the love and understanding of forgiveness of a child the world is redeemed. Over coming our prejudices, our indifference and past hurts with pure sacrifice. The main character gives the ultimate gift of love which changes his piece of the world.
Pure Love for sure! What a magical tale about a little boy's pure heart. Love the ethnic spice of another culture all through the story. Felt like I was there. Saw the town's people, understood the darkness of racism through the experience of the characters. What a hooking beginning! This tale is so well-written. . . . I'm from a Latin culture myself, could relate well . . . wonderful storyteller. Ready for her next one.
Shari’s stories are poignant and Pure Love is no exception. A powerful message of how bigotry is overcome through love and sacrifice.
Wow – that is a lot to absorb and take in with less than 100 pages?! It touches on dark subjects with a ray of light throughout – written by a wonderful artist who knows how to craft a powerful read!
I really enjoyed this book. It really makes you think about how precious life is, and I am so looking forward to her next book.
This one left an impact on me. . . . Shari has a way with words.

A gripping revelation of the generations that experienced unnecessary pain. The stories expose hardened hearts that fostered unwillingness to comprehend their victim’s trauma denying them hope of compassionate prevention.
Hello friends! I just asked the following question on my facebook author page and I’d like some feedback here, too: “Hello friends, can we sit down and have a serious conversation, please? I have an important question to ask all of you. As most of you know, my four short books deal with some serious…
Well, this is embarrassing! I have visitors and my website STILL isn’t finished. 😉 To be fair, it was finished, but looked terrible, so I’m trying to re-do it. Pray for me!
