'Sisterhood of Strength' Book Tour and Review

Book Description:

Experience for yourself the pure love that inspires ordinary women to serve and accept service in a truly extraordinary manner. This inspiring collection of true stories from the lives of women just like you is told with heartwarming sincerity. Perfect for sharing, this remarkable book is sure to uplift, encourage, and cheer any woman, whether it’s her turn to serve or be served.

About the author:

I’m a wife, mother of seven, and grandmother of two originally from Alaska, but currently live in Utah with my family and now consider myself a true city girl at heart. I will readily admit I don’t miss the giant mosquitoes or the cold and long, dark winters way up North, but I absolutely miss the fresh seafood. Fish and chips made with fresh-caught halibut is my favorite!

My beginning as a writer started in elementary school when a poem I had written for a contest was chosen as a winner, set to music, and sung by the whole school at an assembly. I wrote my first picture book, 11 pages long in fifth grade as an assignment,  bound it myself and have read it to my children several times. The next book I wrote, I was in eighth grade, 48 pages long with photograph’s and was a memoir.

The first edition of my first published novel, Torn Apart was released in July 2008, when I was 42 years old, the second edition under a new publisher was released nationally in February of 2009. So…never give up on your dream of writing. I’m currently working on my third novel.

When I’m not imagining a new plot-line or typing frantically away at my computer, I love to spend time with my family, read (my favorite genre is romantic suspense) travel, cook or bake something delicious, sew, scrap-book, or work on crafts.

The best advice I would give on how to become a better writer is to read and write everyday!. You can find more about Diony at

**My thoughts**

This is the kind of book you read for inspiration when you are feeling down and low. It is a reminder that good people are out there, just when you need them, and when you least expect them. You could sit and read the entire book at once. I think it would have more meaning to read one or two stories at a time. It could make for a great coffee table book, for you and guests to pick up and peruse when the feeling strikes.

I am always amazed at the strength that we women have. It is always there within us, even when we feel like we are struggling. I am also amazed at the power of paying it forward. It is something I strive to do on a regular basis. The stories in this book are powerful and moving. I found myself with tears in my eyes on more than one occasion.
