When The Bough Breaks will be helpful to others who have loss a loved one. Sharing things you did to get a sense of control over your life was enlightening. Losing my child especially during this pandemic, the day after our county mandatory Stay at Home Order, and being isolated from family and friends, was both frightening and stressful. This truly has been the hardest thing I have ever endured. I'm struggling and finding it hard getting my life back. I have the sleepless nights, the sudden crying spells. I think if I incorporate your suggestion on journaling that would help in starting the healing journey/process. Thanks.

In reading When The Bough Breaks I realized I hadn’t grieved the loss of my mother. That was a difficult time in my life where I was fighting breast cancer and had just started chemotherapy. The book made me laugh as well as cry. When I got to Chapter 9 I could truly relate. I too had a butterfly experience and I felt it was my loved one. Your book gave me confirmation and great tools to healing.
Oh Connie, well done and beautiful tribute to your mother! You are one strong woman! You went through so much. The emotions and experiences were beautifully written. As I read When The Bough Breaks I felt like I was right there with you. I couldn’t put the book down. It was an easy read, I loved the print size and all. I never read books from the beginning to the end, but this one kept me engaged and wanting to read more. I cried, laughed, cried some more. They were good tears. Made me think about when my mom passed. I didn’t cry, I was with her when she took her last breath, but I didn’t cry. This book helped me grieve. I love it! I’m going to purchase a few more to gift to others I know reading your book will help. Your mother would be extremely proud of you. Well done!

Very good book. The scriptures referenced were spot on! I normally am not easily bought to display any emotions, but I did in reading When The Bough Breaks. I didn’t realize I hadn’t grieve over my mother. I remember the day she passed very vividly. Thank you for writing this book it helped me and I know if will help anyone who reads it. I laughed at the stories in the book and felt I was right there with you. I never read a book straight through. I couldn’t go to bed. I had to see what was on the next page. I was up until 3:30 in the morning before I actually finished. There are so many things to build on I will be reading it again. Excellent book and God bless you!

They way you wrote, I felt like I was right there as you were going through. I could visualize what I read was amazing. It made think about when I loss my grand baby. I thought I could never get over that. This book helped me put things into perspective. Girl, you did that. You’ve got to write another one. I can’t wait for When The Bough Breaks Part 2.
Excellent book! I said I was going to read a little at a time, but when I started I couldn’t put it down. It caused me to reflect on when I loss my mom and the rough time I had. I finished it about one o’clock in the morning. I said I can’t wait to talk to you and tell you what an excellent job and how proud I am of you. I loved how you spoke on the love your dad had for you mom. In the book when your father begin to roll your mother out...my lord! I’m affiliated with numerous organizations and I’m going to tell them all When The Bough Breaks is a must read. This will truly help all who read it. You’ve got to write another book to this one may I suggest the title be Queen.
