Dear Maria,

I couldn’t remember the last time I read a book, but I finished The Apple Tree Wish cover to cover within 24 hours.  

It’s the first time I’ve read an autobiography book written by someone I personally knew and I was all shook up. Weeping nonstop while I was at Champagne Bakery in between meetings. What you made of the life experiences God gave you is absolutely an inspiration to everyone. You take not just one lemon, but an entire tree of lemons and made it into a wonderful life you created for yourself. 

I cannot even articulate into words how your book and life has touched me. I’ve been telling people and will keep raving about your book.  

Bless your heart for publishing it to comfort the world of hurting souls.
