  1. Congratulation, Jeanette! Every book I've read of yours has been terrific!

  2. How exciting, Jeanette! Praise God.

  3. Congratulations! I can't wait to read your latest. I loved all our books. If I had to choose one, I don't know which I pick. While I loved the suspense ones best (for that's my favorite genre) - the lasting impression was your Veiled Freedom. So glad you are received the due recognition. May God keep you writing for our pleasure and His glory. I hope this book is on Kindle - if not I'll read it however I can. Again congrats and may this be the beginning of many awards. Fran Fernandez

  4. Congratulations! How exciting!!! Blessings on your ministry, Jeanette.


  5. Veiled Freedom is one of those books that draws you into the story and you find yourself not wanting to put it down. Author Jeannette Windle has done an excellent job in capturing her readers with an impacting story of real characters dealing with very real situations. The intricate detail is spot on placing you right there visually in each atmosphere and situation.
    Not many books lately have drawn me in as this one has. I found myself learning lots of new things and questioning others.This book is a perfect story of perseverance and hurt and trials.
    If you like realism, love, trust, friendships, action, adventure, twist and turns that will have you on the edge of your seat, then this book is for you! I will definitely be reading more titles by this author.

  6. There are many writing services are available online but only few are genuine and available for affordable price. If you choose cheap essay writing service you can save your money and score good grade. But you should select the reliablecheap essay writing service service for your paper, because scams and fakes are also simultaneously working online.
