What a delightful story – #bookreviewer Salute

What a delightful story!

Esther Ka’awai had the gift of knowing – it wasn’t seeing into the future; it wasn’t events she saw pictures of – it was just an immediate knowing of a happening but not of an outcome; it was something she had had since she was a child. When Esther told her husband she knew the unpredicted storm would hit their island of Kauai, he believed her – she had proven her knowing was never wrong. But the people of the island did not believe her; after all it wasn’t forecast therefore it couldn’t be so…

As time passed Esther became a well-respected wise woman on her island in Hawaii; her gifts were widely used and well known. But the day a stranger came to Kauai was the beginning of change for Esther. And her belief in her gift would be tested as she struggled with what she knew…

What an absolutely delightful short story Esther’s Gift by Bette Lee Crosby is! I raced through the pages, devouring them and enjoying every minute. Beautifully written, the characters wound their way into my heart until I knew them like I know my own friends. Highly recommended (as I recommend all this author’s work)

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 Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript.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.
