A Congressional Congratulation for Susan Miura

On Christmas Eve, Susan Miura received a letter from Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi congratulating her on her Midwest Book Review rating and Royal Dragonfly award.  It’s impressive that the Congressman took time out of his day to thank a hardworking author! We couldn’t be happier for Susan (or prouder of her accomplishment!)

Have You Seen the Book Video for Shards of Light by Susan Miura?

Shards of Light is in the second in the Healer series by Susan Miura. It’s a story of a gifted teen with the ability to heal others who discovers a dark secret at the convent where she’s been sent to learn more about her gift.

“With its different characters and their special focuses and its gentle exploration of a young woman’s life in flux, Shards of Light is a beautifully evocative story that stands well alone while enhancing a series. It invites readers to reflect long after Shilo’s journey through faith and secrets comes to an end.” – D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
