BOOKS ON KINDLE
To those who read one or some of these books: If you like them, Connie would appreciate it very much if you would send in a REVIEW on AMAZON.com. It can be as short as one sentence.
At fifteen years old, their path is already set, as Maggie runs away from home, and Janey decides to be a nun. Maggie’s naivety leads her into prostitution, thievery, and struggles with her emotions. Janey’s assignment to a mission brings her temptations, weaknesses, inner conflicts and a heartbreaking decision that follows her through life.
Many years later, their paths cross again, and an uncanny co-incidence and startling revelation leads them into a deep and happy lifetime friendship.
