Slms Shafinaaz.

I chatted to you on channel Islam a few weeks ago (germ). I hav'nt
read
your book yet but i did read the reviews etc on the blogspot. I just
wanted to wish you all the best for the book and hope negative
reviews are
less than positive ones and people respond to "daughters are
diamonds"
with an open mind set. A diamond is the hardest mineral and most
prized
gemstone. I link "hard" with strong and I find your title both
capturing
and beautiful. I look forward to reading your book. Once again... all
the
best.

This is great!
I know an author who says his book almost took on a life ot its own after publication. He is traveling all over Canada signing it and having talks about it>

Your baby seems to do the same!
