Favorite Authors - Why I Love Sally John's Books
Sally John is a "newish" author to me. I have only read a few of her books, but I really enjoy her writing style. I like that she writes short chapters. She really holds my interest that way, and I always tell myself "just one more chapter" (and, of course, end up reading more than that!)
I love the way that Sally John is not afraid to take on real life issues and put them into her books. She doesn't just go the route of writing fluffy romances, but she makes her characters go through some tough situations. She writes books that have meaning and great messages, and I love that about her.
I have always enjoyed a book that is about more than a love story. I like reading about family problems and painful pasts, about couples struggling in their marriages, about siblings learning to get along. Sally John has all of that in her book Heart Echos, which centers around two sisters and the hurt and challenges in their lives. I enjoyed every minute of that book. I literally did not want to put it down.
There are few authors who make me feel fully engaged in a book, so much so that I want to keep turning page after page. Sally John is one of those authors because of the interesting stories that she tells. She writes with purpose, and she really gives the characters life. She writes stories about family, and that is what I most enjoy writing in my own novels.
If you are looking for a new author to read that isn't all fluff, then I suggest that you try one of her books. Sally John is a talented author who inspires me in my writing. She writes stories with great messages, and she really does tackle the tough issues in her writing. She gives hope for healing in her novels, and I really like that about her.
Start with Heart Echos, like I did, and I'm sure you'll be hooked.
I'm excited to read more of Sally John's books in the future!
