5.0 out of 5 stars Just Close your eyes and go for it.
By Manoj chandila on 19 August 2020
Patricia! if you're reading this please know that I love your book and the cover even more, people can judge this book by its cover :), because it justifies every word inscribed on it. Thank you for your 'plain English', simplicity has been and always will be 'ATTRACTIVE'. Speaking is as charming as reading or writing in my opinion and it should be made so if not. You've just helped us in that direction. Heartfelt thank you :).
