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.

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.
