Featured Book: The Sparkle In Her Eyes by Aileen Friedman


The Sparkle in Her Eyes

Plus Six more Short Stories

The devastating disease, Alzheimer’s, that ravaged her mother, left the author, Aileen Friedman, inspired to share her emotional roller-coaster ride. A heartfelt and non-fictional short story told from the depths of her heart also includes humorous encounters with other residents of the home in which her mother spent her remaining days.

Included are six more short stories, all designed to encourage and inspire the reader. From the story about a beautiful but selfish model who loses everything in an accident, to an actress who finds true love on an airplane, and an alcoholic who returns to her hometown for a school reunion.

The reader will also meet a woman whose life is changed when renovating a house, an elderly lady who returns home after sixty years and who is haunted by her past, and a young lady who by discovering a cozy bookstore discovers much more.

Be uplifted by seven wonderful stories, share the author’s tears and happiness, and rejoice in the strength of Jesus as her characters overcome the obstacles placed in their paths.

What readers are saying:

“Love this author, can’t wait for the next book! “ – Amazon reviewer

“Each story has a nugget of truth to touch every life. Many involve extreme loss, of life, of beauty, of family/friends but all offer hope for a bright future. Enjoyed each immensely, am sure the last was the most difficult for the author to write. God bless! “ – Amazon reviewer
