The Reader Salute – The Twelfth Child review by Teresa

Teresa from Goodreads gave The Twelfth Child 5 stars and a lovely review:

The enchanting story of two lonely ladies, one older and one younger, who build a relationship borne out of their unique circumstances and the need they each have for a special someone in their lives. They both give to the other freely and unselfishly. Unfortunately both are a bit naive as to the ways of the world and before the story concludes one will die and the other will find herself under attack from a greedy relative and the legal system.

Ms. Crosby has a very special gift of creating characters that one can’t help but fall in loves with. They are folks who would make great neighbors or relatives. Their stories would be welcomed at family reunions or over cups of hot chocolate in front of a fireplace.

About the author

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
