LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the book…it made my heart ache for Dana knowing that her true love was out there for so many years and she couldn’t be with him, but always held him so close to her heart. I was screaming inside for her to follow her heart and not look back. She was torn and I felt both her pain and her love. Oh my..I felt like I was right there with Dana,as a by-stander, just wanting to push Dana into David’s arms and just tell her that everything will be ok. Every word and every twist and turn touched my heart!
All I can say is If you believe in true love then this is the book for you. If you don’t believe in true love, then you need to read this book!
I would to see this in a movie!
Thank you for writing such a wonderful book,
I have to tell you that it is 2:00 am and I cannot put this book down. I am ready to start chap 25 and I have tears running down my cheeks. What a gut wrenching story and beautifully written. I am so glad that I got a copy of this book. I can’t remember the last real book that I have read, sadly enough. You are a talented writer and please don’t let this be the last!
For the first time in my life, I read a book within 48 hours!! I enjoyed your book from cover to cover!! What a beautiful love story and what a sad love story. My emotions were all over the place. You wrote so descriptively (is that a word???), I felt that I was right beside you all the way. I just finished the book 2 minutes ago and I can truthfully say “I am drained”. I agree with your other readers, I will have to read your book again. Am I really saying that, someone who doesn’t read anything but magazines? Our roles may have just reversed. You may have just taught ME the pleasure of reading. Now I will have to learn how to pick out books that I will fall in love with, particularly written by Donna Jones.
Thank you for sharing this beautiful story with me.
I got just got home (well my current location) after being down in St Charles with my mom for a week. She has advanced ovarian cancer and doesn’t have much longer I’m afraid. Anyways, I started reading your book and am sitting here crying! What is it about lost love? I think I’m on chapter 12 or so and am waiting and for the “silver lining”. I guess we all think that our life stories are all so different that they couldn’t be matched by anyone but your words ring so familiar it’s scary. Congratulations on writing a wonderful book and being able to put into words those hard things that seem to build up to a point where your heart just hurts.
I am not a person who read’s a lot. If I start a book, it usually takes me a month to get through! I read your book in 24 hours. It was absolutely amazing and congrats to you for your accomplishment in writing this book.
I loved the book the minute I started reading it. I couldn’t wait to get to the next chapter to see what happened next and what happened next was always a surprise!
I could feel the pain of Dana, David and Brent but I could also feel the intense love Dana and David had for each other.
I cried, I laughed……….I was on an emotional roller coaster. Anyone who reads this book will be touched!
WOOHOO!!! I just received my awaited for book, “Different Directions: How a Moment in Time Can Change One’s Life Forever”!! I have so much to do today that I am afraid to start reading it for the second time; knowing I won’t stop. I’m so excited!! God has given each of us a gift and yours is obviously in writing and word. And I am so proud that you followed your dream and your gift! Use it and share it to reach out to the world and give the world a refreshing taste of love and happiness!
I jjust finished your book and it was amazing!! Loved it! Love it! Love it! It usually takes me weeks or months to finish a book. I finished yours in three days and that was while working full time and watching my grand daughter in the evenings. I have to say that I think that this book is not only a great read for women, but men should read it as well! They might learn a thing or two and have a better understanding about life, marriage and women!
Ultimately, the way I see it, is that it comes down to following your heart. If you do not follow your heart you will always have a empty spot that will eventually eat away at you until it kills your soul.
Cant wait to read your next book…
