"What a wonderful story of courage and hope. I loved Evelyn Whitcomb’s story and her love for her town and the families in it. How courageous she was. I hope we hear more about Evelyn and Daniel in future stories. I look forward to more short stories from this post-Civil War town."

~Reader on "Whitcomb Springs"

"Samantha St, Claire's HEALING FIRE is a lovely read! I felt like I was there in the yard, my back leaning against a fence post, as I watched events unfold. Miss St. Claire writes about choices a young widow makes for herself and for her son in the face of societal judgment and familial pressure. I couldn't pull myself away, so I finished it in one sitting. Especially gripping was the fire scene. Lovable characters left me wanting more, please."

~ Reader on "Healing Fire"

"Thank you for this story which just wets my appetite for more books in the future. I've had a marvelous afternoon reading about the good, the bad and the honorable."

~ Reader on "Retribution Road"

"Forsaken Trail is another fabulous read by MK McClintock! I have read just about everything MK has written and I am never disappointed. This one is no different. It is a short story but it is packed full of adventure, suspense, love and inspiration. I loved it! I give Forsaken Trail 5 stars and highly recommend Cooper’s story for all who love a good historical."

~ Reader on "Forsaken Trail"


"I had fun reading this short story! I kept wanting to find out about the characters and there was the perfect balance of background info and curiosity of each. I highly recommend this story!!"

~Reader on "Tracking Amy"


“‘The Unwitting Hero of Whitcomb Springs’ is a well-paced, engaging short story by author Samantha St. Claire. Ms. St. Claire is eminently skilled in story-telling, evidenced by the presentation of heart-warming images in phrasing that stays in the mind once the story has ended."
