Review on Annie’s Story, Blessed With A Gift, from a Reader in India

I received a Tweet just the other day, telling me a reader on the other side of the world had read, enjoyed, and written a review on amazon.in. I share it below:

“It is rare to come across a book in historical times that depicts the language and people of that time as perfectly as Deborah Bowman’s book does. She has thoroughly researched the history, language, people of the mid 16th century before writing Annie’s story. Annie is not your ordinary girl, she is blessed with a gift. Have you ever felt like deja-vu? Take it a notch higher, Annie is a strong woman, little and soft but strong at heart. Losing her parents and being brought up by her grandmother alone are not the only things we feel for Annie. The times of 16th century America was not as soft for a woman. Deborah Bowman takes us on a journey to the world we do not often encounter. Nowadays it is more about YA novels set in today’s time or fantasy lands. I love how Deborah Bowman chose such a vivid topic and place to write about. Annie’s simple heart, pure courage, her love for nature, care for animals and all things alike will make you think.
“No matter the troubles and problems life throws your way, you can still rise above it and live. Make way and in turn guide others.”

I am lucky to have read a story with such a different style of writing. If you love historical stories with surprises and twists with genuine reasons, you will love it for sure!”

Thank you so much! Annie is happy to have spent time with you.–Deborah A. Bowman

Thank you for a wonderful 5- star review!

JUST TODAY, I FOUND THIS AMAZING 5-STAR REVIEW ON MY LATEST BOOK, JUST RELEASED THIS YEAR, “ANNIE’S STORY, BLESSED WITH A GIFT”

THANK YOU “Dimmy,” an amazon book reviewer, you captured the essence of my character “Annie” perfectly! My smile is blended with tears of gratitude…

“I read this book a couple of months ago. It is the story of a little girl who was born in the 17th century in North Eastern United States, a time of trouble, war, fury, cold, hunger, suffering, sorrow and a lot of joy too. The little girl seemed to be immune to most of the negative human emotions that trouble human beings. She was brought up lovingly and with care by her grandma, she having lost her parents as she was born. But having been blessed with a sixth sense and the ability to perceive things which are not in the dimensions we human beings know, she was far advanced for her age, time and space. She was well versed in native medicine as was her grandma.
Times were hard but Annie, the little girl grew up as a Blythe spirit. She was physically handicapped but mentally she had the development of people far beyond other human beings. In addition she could speak to animals and nature.
This story is about love, and hope and courage and survival.
It gives us hope that in spite of all ills and disabilities, man can still live and live well. Deborah Bowman the writer writes in a clear language and has done her research into the time period well. She has tried to use the language of the times and that increases the authenticity of the content.”
