I'm so excited that I could dance forever!!!! An independent reviewer gave "With you in my heart" 4/5 stars.
I'm screaming right now and my poor child has been startled awake!!! I can't tell you what a great boost of confidence this gives me.

Jennifer Emard of http://thejenaissance.blogspot.com totally made my morning! I hadn't expected to see the review within three days! So prompt and professional.

I'm going to copy/paste parts of her review here -

"I really enjoyed this book. The characters are well-drawn and sympathetic, and at times, quite funny. The cultural attitudes towards women and arranged marriages is informative without being preachy. Around the middle you may begin to think that the plot twists are becoming obvious; don't be fooled. The author is just setting you up before she pulls the rug out from under you.
I have to say, I did not see the ending coming. Once Verun's secret is revealed, the story starts taking unexpected turns. Frequently I found myself thinking, "She/he is NOT going to do that!".
You'll find yourself racing towards the ending wondering how it will ever work out. I'm not usually surprised by books; this was a welcome and entertaining change."

Okay, I'll stop...but it's been a positive morning. 

Thanks for bearing with me. 

Hugs to everyone!
