Author Pulls Story from SHADOWS

Medical Staff must always understand, Beneficence Non Maleficence...
Above all ..... Do No Harm - This is our Duty of Care.

I feel honoured and surprised for this wonderful review written about my book. .

                                                                   


Shadows of Time is the uplifting and inspiring story of a young doctor, Ariana Ross, who sets out to overcome the traumas of her past by relocating to a Queensland rural town, where she rebuilds her life and helps to heal others.

Emergency Dept.

Crystal has drawn on her own experiences as an emergency nurse to make this novel a page-turning combination of realism, faith and human courage.
The many positive reviews the book has received confirms that the author's message of encouragement has succeeded.
Crystal's own life changed with a visit to Chicago for a professional seminar, where she met her husband Ray.
They had corresponded before but meeting in person confirmed to them that they were meant to spend their future lives together.
After three years residing in Tennessee, the couple eventually decided that Gympie was where they would like to call home.
After a bad fall on the way back to live in Queensland, Crystal came to the realisation that her career in emergency medicine was over.
At her son's suggestion she then began writing a Christian inspirational blog to keep in contact with American friends, and she has since followed this up with a health blog, drawing again on her professional background as a nursing sister.
You are invited to meet Crystal when she introduces her book Shadows of Time at 10.30am on Thursday, January 29 at Gympie Library.
She will also provide a range of insights into the background to this heart-warming story and her inspiration for writing it.
Morning tea and light refreshments will be served afterwards.

    1. Hope you buy it Starry.. I have a Kindle and can download books onto it. I have about 80 books on there to date. The great thing about a Kindle is the books do not cost as much and some are actually free.. So it soon pays for itself. Otherwise you can download Cloud from Amazon straight to your computer and download books straight to it. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  4. I bought the Kindle edition. The overview sounds so enticing that I couldn't resist, though I usually prefer books with main characters in my age group (50+). Your Amazon reviews are so glowing and enthusiastic. They are what pushed me over the edge :) May take me a while to finish it. My schedule is so tight, and I now read novels a bit at a time. I'm looking forward to it!
