Praise for From the Heart
“To be able to read love stories that are unusual is such a treat. This will be a delightful coffee table book and certainly a conversation starter. “ — Beverly Houseman, author of Rusty and Me, and A Mother’s Story, and contributor to Chicken Soup for the Nurse’s Soul and Family Doctor.
“Too often, the only kind of love portrayed in today's literature is the romantic kind. Being a part of Love Stories is an opportunity for writers from all over the country to share their stories of different kinds of love that have been so important in their lives.” — Jaclyn Weldon White, author of Whisper to the Black Candle, The Empty Nursery and A Very Special Gift.
"I wanted to be included in Love Stories to show how love can be expanded even to those of our family who are not yet born! Sometimes we mistakenly think romance is the only form of love to be celebrated." — Sheila S. Hudson,
author/contributor to Chocolate for Women series, God Allows U-Turns, Life's Little Rule Book and The Expressive Heart.
Love Stories grabs you by the heartstrings and won't let go. This book offers an extraordinary glimpse into the universal emotion of love. I'm proud to be a part of it. “— Shaunna Privratsky, author of the award-winning The Silk Robe and more than fifty articles and short stories appearing in print and on the Internet.
“I hope this book makes it around the world. Love is a global theme and you can’t write about a better subject.” — Roberta Beach Jacobson, contributor to three Chocolate Series books, her latest being Chocolate for a Woman’s Dreams (Simon and Schuster, 2001). Her essays also appear in Women Runners: Stories for Transformation (Breakaway Books, 2001) and Travelers’ Tales Greece (Travelers’ Tales Books, 2001).
"Kendall Bell's idea for a book of heartwarming love stories struck a chord. With all that's going on in the world, it's the right time for such an optimistic book. Vive l'amour!" — Linda Jay Geldens, writer of 20+ feature stories and profiles for TV Technology, editor of Syllabus magazine and of book manuscripts for Random House and other publishers.“Many people of all ages will gain inspiration and comfort from these stories about relationships. Valuable insight is important to everyone interested in creating a better life for themselves and those whom they love.” — Marion Hanson Sadler, author of Death & Dying, Can a Mother Die of a Broken Heart, her first book.
