I just finished reading Kansas Brides. What a great book. All the stories were well written. My favorite was Bittersweet Bride. It made me laugh and it made me cry. Everytime I put the book down I would wonder what was happening in the story. It was as though the characters were real in my heart. That is good writing. Not very often does a book affect me in that way. Thank you for sharing your God given gift. Keep up the good work.
Hi Denise, I just recently joined Gloria Gaither's Book Club and I just received my first book from them which is Saving Grace. I have to tell you that after I read the back cover of the book I almost didn't read it. You see I had to have a hysterectomy at the age of 32 due to endometriosis. After the surgery I went into a severe depression because I knew I was never going to be able to have a child of my own. Needless to say I do my best to avoid reading or watching anything about babies because it just seems to open that old hurt of not being able to have any of my own. So, when I received your book in the mail, I was like this just can't be happening,I join a book club because I absolutely love to read and the first book I get is about babies. Boy, God sure works in mysterious ways alright! I started reading the book and couldn't put it down. I related so well with the characters in the book and the different mirage of emotions that they went through. I also really liked the realistic way in which each of them reacted to the different situations they were in. Which made me look at myself more closely, when I learned I would never be able to have a child of my own I was completely devastased I went through all the emotions of wondering why this was happening to me and why God allowed some people who abuse their childern to even have kids and why someone like me who has so much love to give a child couldn't have one. There are times I still struggle with that one. But after reading your book I realize just how far I had fallen into self pity.That I should be more thankful for the things and people in my life instead of dwelling on things I can't have. I have a wonderful husband and 3 great stepsons. Your book has made me look at myself and how I interact with other people especially those who have wronged me. Now that I know about your books I look forward to reading some more by you. I am going to go out a get Mending Places. I also think that Saving Grace is a book that every young girl should read. Thanks for writing wonderful books like this that not only tell a great story but gives you something to think about in relation to your own life. May God richly bless you.

Hi Denise. I am a Christian homeschooling mom of two boys ages 12 and 13 and I am also a writer. My articles have been published in various homeschooling publications and I recently self-published a book about our family's homeschooling journey called "The Homeschooling Trail...A Journey of Faith". I have read TONS of Christian fiction but your book MENDING PLACES has held my attention unlike many of the books I've recently picked up. I'm 2/3 of the way through it and I don't want it to end! I'm already looking forward to reading your next book in the series. Thankyou for using your talents in this way. It blesses God and readers alike!
I just wanted to let you know I loved your book Kansas Brides. It was so good! I would like to see more like that one.:) Thanks for writing Christian romance books for girls like me to read. Vanessa

I visited your website today because I wanted to see what other kinds of books you write. I thoroughly enjoyed Kansas Brides and even reread 'Stranger's Bride' because I enjoyed it so much the first time. Thank you for sharing your talent with the public. I wish you the best in the future both professionally as well as personally.
Hi Denise!! Just wanted a chance to encourage you. I have truly enjoyed your books and I pray, that if it be His Will, you will continue writing for a long time. God Bless!!

Hi Mrs. Hunter,
I am reading Kansas Brides...and i cant put it down...it is so good and interesting...i am a believer in God and i am a active member in church...but i want to tell you that you have changed my outlook on books...i am a faithful reader... If i couldnt read then i probably wouldnt be able to live...but let me tell you that i am an African American female, 17 years of age...and before i started reading your book...i always read books by black authors...i never ventured...but something made me buy your book...and i begun reading it and i was like...Wow! I should never underestimate anything...you have changed a small part of my life and for that i want to say thank you...you have saved me from a closed mind...Thank you.
