This is why I write. (A letter from a reader.)

I received the following letter from a reader. It blessed my heart and reminded me why I write. And that is... to touch reader's lives.

With his permission, I want to share it with  you.

Here it is:

Dear Mrs Ullrick
Thank you very much for writing The Unlikely Wife. I was really touched by it and I very much enjoyed that the references to the Bible weren't just there to make it more realistic for the timeframe, like in other Harlequin Historical/Love Inspired Historical books I've read so far. It's a really beautiful story, and, especially towards the end, I quite started to envy Michael a bit. I pray the Lord will one day give me a wife that's as good for me as Selina was for Michael, and I can't wait to see what he has in store for me. I pray the Lord will make me worthier each day, but I'm longing for it to happen as soon as possible. On the other hand I wouldn't want to risk having someone else instead of Him in the centre, when I'm already struggling at that as it is.
Again, I really thank you for this beautiful work. It is rare for any literature touching an avid reader like me so deeply. I will most likely read through many of your other books over time now. I'd certainly rather buy something like this than to buy just some Harlequin book by a random writer as I've done so far.
Kind Greetings from Switzerland
