    I have been reading Miss Julia for years. I have been dawdling finishing the series because I don’t want it to end. Currently I am reading the penultimate book and I have been dawdling with it as well for the same reason. Thank you for all the delightful adventures of Miss Julia. When I finally finish, I will feel like I have lost a friend.

    I have enjoyed ALL of your Miss Julia books more than I can express. They have provided a pleasant retreat from lifes difficulties. I am sad each time I near the end of each book but especially this last one because it is the last. So wonderfully written and an excellent exit. Thank you for using your gifts, knowledge and acquired skills to be a blessing to me and I am certain many! May God bless you and keep you in His care Ms. Ross
