              THE SHEPHERD'S SONG
    by Betsy Duffey and Laurie Myers

Betsy Duffey and Laurie Myers have been writing for

over twenty years. Betsy is a licensed counselor, often using writing as a tool for healing. Laurie co-founded an urban school where she devotes her time. They have spoken at hundreds of elementary schools across the nation and have shared ideas with countless women’s groups. They live in Georgia where they write together as the Writing Sisters.


From the book’s back cover:
Shortly before a tragic car accident, Kate McConnell wrote down the powerful words of Psalm 23, on a piece of paper for her wayward son. Just before she

loses consciousness, Kate wonders if she’s done enough with her life and prays, “Please, let my life count.”

Unbeknownst to Kate, her handwritten copy of Psalm 23 soon begins a remarkable journey around the world. From a lonely dry cleaning employee to a soldier wounded in Iraq, to a young Kurdish girl fleeing her country, to a Kenyan runner in the Rome Invitational Marathon, this humble message forever changes the lives of twelve very different people. Eventually, Kate’s paper makes it way back to its starting place, and she discovers the unexpected ways that God changes lives, even through the smallest gestures.

With beautiful prose evocative of master storyteller Andy Andrews’s The Butterfly Effect, this story will touch your heart and remind you of the ways God works through us to reach beyond what we can imagine.

From Jo:
With concern for her wayward son, Kate McConnell writes the words of Psalm 23, folds the sheet of paper, and tucks it into the jacket pocket of her son. When that same jacket goes to the dry cleaners, Kate fails to empty its pockets. Thus begins a trip around the world of her note for her son, changing the lives of twelve people. Duffey and Myers write excellent variations of characters, settings, and cultures. For those who read this book, many times twelve lives will be changed for the better. If you like reading Andy Andrews, you’ll love this book!




One commenter will be randomly chosen to receive a paperback copy of The Shepherd's Song. Winner announced next Thursday.


No book winner to announce this time because there was no author post on Christmas Eve.


Till next time … keep on smiling.
