Our first update is for

Deborah A. Bowman with

Annie’s Story: Blessed with a Gift which was released earlier this year.

About Annie’s story

This story of love and faith by “different” people—now called “special” people—begs to be told. “Annie’s Story” is about a dwarfed, mentally slow child growing up in Colonial America, who is “Blessed With A Gift” from the Spiritual Universe. In Annie’s lifetime, babies born with birth defects and their mothers were banished or put to death—their names cleansed from all church and legal records. Annie’s message is timeless, and her shining spirit reveals that “History Does Repeat Itself” in the treatment, abuse, labeling, and bullying of women, children, and individuals with special needs.

Factual research has confirmed what many generations have tried to eradicate or conceal as was done in the Salem Witch Hysteria of 1692-93, nearly half-a-century “after” Annie lived. JOIN THE ANNIE MOVEMENT to continue the fight for women’s rights, cure birth defects, and stop bullying. Have perceptions changed all that much since the mid-1600s? Have they changed enough? Sadly, they have not. Purchase the book to support women and children. Please, write a review and contact the author. Fundraiser opportunities available.

A recent review for Annie’s story

A unique story By L.C.on June 25, 2017

Annie’s Story provides a unique insider’s look into the world of newly emigrated people, the Scots, to a free land where they could safely continue worshipping their faith—Catholicism. For Annie, born into a world where one’s physical differences and abilities were considered the child of the devil, it was life threatening.

Annie was raised by her grandmother, a renowned Scottish healer, after her parents died from the plague. This story highlights the hardships endured by immigrants in a world vastly different to their own, who contend with harshness of the land, weather and hiding their beliefs from their neighbours—the Puritans.

Annie was a dwarf and a healer, born in the mid-17th century in Colonial America. Her family left Scotland to avoid the harsh and imperial rule of the English King Charles II, migrated to Massachusetts Bay area, not far from a Puritan settlement. Her grandmother, taught Annie the art and skills of ‘pagan’ medicine after witnessing her miraculously heal a man who almost died.

Annie’s grandmother, her best friend Janey, her parents and the Scottish community protect and shield Annie from outsiders, who don’t understand her physical and mental disabilities. The young girl heals a boy from the Puritan township, which they later become friends and then fall in love.

One of the subjects I am not overly familiar with is American history. The Civil War was perhaps its greatest exponents, as was Abraham Lincoln, and so when I started reading this book, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I read historical fiction, but tend to go for books that predate Christianity.

What intrigued and drew me to the story was that it was premised on a past-life regression, in this case, the author’s. Bowman prefaces the book with background information that she underwent an “age” regression, and in follow up sessions, learnt she lived in another time and went by the name of Annie. The book has facts interwoven within the story, about Annie, the period and the way people who were different were treated. It is evident a great deal of research has gone into the story, describing what life was like during Colonial America for migrants, the Indians and how the Puritans lived.

The use of Scottish phrases and terms is great and it remains true to the characters, but I would have preferred a glossary at the end of the book rather than the explanation within the narrative.

For readers who know little about America’s early history, Annie’s Story is a good introduction to life during a period of unrest in Colonial America. For those who know a lot more, you will enjoy the various historical elements that feature in this story.

Linda Bradley and the third book in her Montana Bound Series: Maggie’s Montana which has received some great recent reviews.

About Maggie’s Montana

Maggie Abernathy, best friend Judy, and Judy’s two young sons travel cross country to visit John McIntyre and daughter Chloe at their Montana ranch. Maggie’s convinced herself that she’s only making the trip to fulfill her promise to visit Chloe, but once there she can’t help but fall in love with the horses, the land, the ranch, and the Montana ways of life. With Chloe’s loving antics, Winston’s gift, and a handful of wranglers showing her the ropes, will Maggie have the heart to say goodbye?

One of the recent reviews on Amazon

Great character development. By Kindle Customer on August 2, 2017

I enjoyed this series and the people Bradley brought to life. I have known everyone of them at different times. The story was romantic in it’s restraint, with desire. I do get a little bored with some romance novels repeating the same scene, different people. I also have lost 2 great friends as well as my mother and grandmother to cancer. Sometimes when everything you care about caves in, after the shock, you have to dig yourself out and up. Only you can decide to try to love again. And if you are lucky enough, you will say yes again and again to children, animals, family and friends. But when you find a really good man, a partner, you will understand that it is by far the most Important decision you will ever make, even the second time around.

A recent review on Goodreads

Debbie Oliphant

rated it 5 stars.

I was pleasantly surprised by this series and it is highly recommended to read the three books. It is so worth it. The pace of the series keeps you engaged and by the third instalment, I found myself trying to slow my pace so I can savor the ending.

Maggie has battled and survived cancer during the same time her husband leave her. She is unsettled and doesn’t believe happiness is in her future and if it is, could she take the risk of a broken heart. It is during these changes that she befriends a precocious seven year old girl who attaches herself to her. Maggie can’t seem to shake little Chloe and the two find they have a bond. Chloe is finding a place in Maggie’s heart and soon Chloe father, John, is finding his place, too.

This journey was wonderful and you’re elated as Maggie and John find their way to o e another and you’re cheering for both of them because they deserve this second chance, but the real gem is the relationship between Maggie and Chloe. Chloe has wisdom beyond her years and is so self aware and she seems to find the right words and feelings to reach Maggie. I loved how the story took its time as you begin to love these characters as the author intended
