Early Endorsements for “A Circle of Souls”

Linda Fairstein, NYT Bestselling Author: "A fascinating debut - this novel takes the reader to the darkest places in the human soul, from a writer with the authenticity to lead us there. A stunning thriller and an important read."

Judge Judy Sheindlin, star of the Judge Judy Show: "The seminal work of this fine author kept me glued to my chair until the adventure was over and the mystery solved. A great read!"

Book Synopsis:

The sleepy town of Newbury, Connecticut, is shocked when a little girl is found brutally murdered. The town s top detective, perplexed by a complete lack of leads, calls in FBI agent Leia Bines, an expert in cases involving children.

Meanwhile, Dr. Peter Gram, a psychiatrist at Newbury s hospital, searches desperately for the cause of seven-year-old Naya Hastings devastating nightmares. Afraid that she might hurt herself in the midst of a torturous episode, Naya s parents have turned to the bright young doctor as their only hope.

The situations confronting Leia and Peter converge when Naya begins drawing chilling images of murder after being bombarded by the disturbing images in her dreams. Amazingly, her sketches are the only clues to the crime that has panicked Newbury residents. Against her better judgment, Leia explores the clues in Naya s crude drawings, only to set off an alarming chain of events.
In this stunning psychological thriller, innocence gives way to evil, and trust lies forgotten in a web of deceit, fear, and murder.

Dear Mary,

Thank you so much for your incisive and most encouraging review.

It certainly encourages me to keep on writing about those incredble women of the Bible.

Warm regards,

Eva Etzioni-Halevy

Mary, thank you. I appreciate your support and have the utmost respect for your son. It would be very difficult for me to be confined to a boat. My greatest heroes are the mothers and wives of military personnel. What we do goes against every maternal instinct, and yet you are always there with a smile and love....THANK YOU!!!

Also, thank you for the compliment on my eBook. I am actually lowering the price today for a limited time to $2.95. Please, pass on my link to anyone who you think would benefit. ( Would you like to get a free copy to review?

Are you promoting a book or service? I would be glad to help you get your name out there...just say the word.

Need help?
