5.0 out of 5 stars Exploring the human heart, April 5, 2012
Amazon Verified Purchase
 When her impulsive decision to become a surrogate mother turns out to be a terrible mistake, Vada Faith finds herself in the middle of a storm. No matter what she does, someone will be hurt. In her debut novel, Barbara Whittington has created an outspoken, lovable character, filled with dreams, who will make you laugh and cry. If you like books that explore the human heart, you'll love being with Vada Faith as she decides what is important in her life. I know I did.

 I loved this book. It's easy to relate to and empathize with the well developed characters. The story "teaches" a good lesson and really makes the reader think about what is truly important. I recommend it!! Can't wait for Barbara Whittington's next novel.

Adrienne (WILMINGTON, DE, US) -This review is from: Vada Faith (Kindle Edition)
I hate reviews that recount the entire plot and tell all the "good" parts. In my opinion, why read the book if I just got all I need to know from the review? Having said that I will keep this short and sweet. I found this book to be well constructed. One thing that endears me to a novel is the ability to believe in the characters and the relationships portrayed in the story. Vada Faith was a story woven around the issue of surrogacy but also about the dynamics of personal everyday relationships. I was able to hear and even feel the needs and struggles of the main character as a woman, mother, sister, wife, and daughter. I look forward to reading more of the author's work.


  1. Congratulations. Looks like you're off to a good start.

  2. Thanks for visiting with your kind words.

    I wish you great sales.

Ode to Old
When I am old- Really really old- And cannot see -
Red balls of rouge- Riding- High on my cheeks,
Black lines- Arching- Over my eyes, 
Gravy stains covering- Yellow flowers- On my good blue dress.
When I am old- And cannot see - Will you please do-  My grooming for me?

My Favorite Essay by Gladys Taber


From an essay by Gladys Taber
Family Circle  - September 1982

    I sat in the sun the other day while the dogs dug up the lawn and thought about work. I wasn’t working. I was just thinking about it. I have found that when I cannot possibly accomplish everything I am supposed to and feel an unbearable pressure---as all homemakers must---if I just stop, life goes better.
    I get a good book, make some spiced tea and sit down on my own corner of the sofa or in my favorite lawn chair. I let life settle in around me, and that is the only way I can express it. After 20 minutes or half an hour, I go back to the mechanics of living.  AND at days end I am just as far along as if I had not stopped to think.

Another of her thoughts: time for thinking is a gift one can give only to one’s self.

Hope you enjoy reading this as much as I have over the years. When I've had it with my life some days -  I have only to sit down with a glass of sweet tea and think of this essay an…

Romance paperback now available - wrapping up those small holiday gifts....

NEW romance paperback makes a sweet gift for the reader in your life.

The publication of my paperback Dear Ann: Love Letters from Nam, which is a short story, is finally HERE. So happy. Just click the link below to go to Amazon and check it out. The story is told in letters between a young soldier in war-torn Vietnam and his bride back home in West Virginia. Priced at $5.99. I put a lot of hard work and considerable research into this story. It is a part of a much larger work - which may take the rest of my lifetime to finish or I may never. Thus, here's a portion of the story I still love! The letters make a good stand-alone story. I hope you'll enjoy reading it. If at all possible, please leave a review on Amazon. This paperback exists because of the many requests I had to turn this story into a tangible book. Dear Anne is filled with romance, and the emotion and angst that comes with war-time romance. Leaving a loved one behind to go fight in a war in a far away strange land…
