What people say about my books:

"...I enjoyed your book and hated to see it end. My friend enjoyed your book so much she ordered a copy for all her friends. I just finished reading ECHOES OF THE FALLING SPRING. I loved it. I'm hoping there will be a sequel to see how their lives continue."
Anonymous - Harrisburg, Pa.

"...Thank you so much for sending my friend and I copies of your book ECHOES OF THE FALLING SPRING. I read mine the first day I got it, as I did your first book. Looking forward to the third one."
Anonymous - Harrisburg, Pa.

"...I already have the following books which you have written: THE GREATEST OF THESE IS LOVE, THE REBERTS OF LITTLESTOWN, ECHOES OF THE FALLING SPRING, FREDERICA SUMMER. I enjoy reading your books so much and in fact I have started to re-read them again."
J.A.K. - Chambersburg, Pa.

"...As an avid reader who enjoys a truly beautiful, spellbinding story, it did not take much more than ---- recommendation to read this book. (THE GREATEST OF THESE IS LOVE). This is a carefully crafted story that follows the lives of Edward Rebert and Katie Rebert through their early years, their courtship, marriage, birth of their children, the advent of war and the struggle to hold true to their faith. The description of the York/Adams County locales were so vividly described that I felt myself transported back in time to see them through the Rebert's eyes. I found myself sharing their joys and sorrows, crying and laughing with them. The realistic description of the skirmish at Hanover and the Battle of Gettysburg stunned my imagination."
C.O'Polka - Hanover, Pa.

"...I began reading THE GREATEST OF THESE IS LOVE the other evening and found it quite arresting. Your writing is well organized and colorful. I like your descriptions and accurate portrayal of the Mennonite faith."
Chaplain Stouffer - Chambersburg, Pa.

"...I thoroughly enjoyed your book THE GREATEST OF THESE IS LOVE. I am a non-resistant Mennonite and feel you give an accurate portrayal of our beliefs. Thank you!"
Anonymous - Chambersburg, Pa.

"...I just finished reading ECHOES OF THE FALLING SPRING. I loved it. I'm hoping there will be a sequel to see how their lives continue. .....I'm sorry its taken me so long to tell you how much I enjoyed your book and hated to see it end. I've ordered copies for all my friends."
B.H. - Harrisburg, Pa.

"...Its interesting that searching for your ancestry is the basis for your book THE GREATEST OF THESE IS LOVE. ....Increased my understanding the Pennsylvania Dutch....your whole story was fascinating with vivid descriptions."
C.H. - Birmingham, Al.

"...I just finished reading ECHOES OF THE FALLING SPRING and loved every minute of it. Even though I was thrilled when it arrived I started reading with some trepidation because the cover emphasizes the Civil War. I have read many Civil War stories and, up until your book, the only one I liked was KILLER ANGELS. ....I am an ex-librarian who thinks the most important thing about a good book is to keep it circulating. I'm only going to give it to people who will read it right away, and then keep it moving - my children and close friends if they promise."
Isabelle Place Trams - Chevy Chase, Md.

"...I just had to write and let you know how much I enjoyed ECHOES OF THE FALLING SPRING. I just couldn't put it down......I also read the first one and both of them were superb. You are to be congratulated for being so talented."
Betty Borish - Apollo, Pa.

"...I just finished reading your book THE GREATEST OF THESE IS LOVE .....I wanted you to know how much I enjoyed it, and how it reminds me of people connected to my own life in another state. I just received a copy of the flyer about your new book ECHOES OF THE FALLING SPRING and am looking forward to reading it."
Betty Bowlus - Penberville, Oh.

"...I want you to know how genuinely I'm enjoying ECHOES OF THE FALLING SPRING. I just started reading it Wednesday and, though a slow reader, I'm "hooked" and reading a few chapters every quiet opportunity. Your novel puts time and faces bringing this historic area together more meaningfully for me."
Florence Backlund - Chambersburg, Pa.

"...I just finished reading ECHOES OF THE FALLING SPRING and felt I had to write and tell you how much I enjoyed it. I have always liked historical novels and I think this is one of the best I have ever read."
Gladys Haugh - Waynesboro, Pa.

"...I finished it (THE GREATEST OF THESE IS LOVE) last night and wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed it. ....I got a kick out of the Belsnickle and the way they banged pots and pans, etc. on Edward and Katie's wedding night."
Pat Keffer - Chambersburg, Pa.

"...Hello Mrs. Gruen. The reason for my writing to you is last year there was an article in the Public Opinion about you and in that article I believe it said that you were coming out with a new book and I would like to know where I could purchase the book. I already have the following books which you have written: THE GREATEST OF THESE IS LOVE, THE REBERTS OF LITTLESTOWN, ECHOES OF THE FALLING SPRING, and FREDERICA SUMMER. I enjoy reading your books so much and in fact, I have started to re-read them again."
T. Mathews

"...My name is Teresa and I live in Fayetteville, Pa. I recently purchased and read ECHOES FROM THE MIST and loved it. It was one of those novels (as was the first - ECHOES OF THE FALLING SPRING) that I just couldn't put down. The ending was great; however, it would be wonderful to read another sequel about Michael, Amanda, and St. Simons Island. Do tell - Are you thinking about writing another sequel to this novel? No response is necessary. Just wanted you to know that I've started reading again thanks to these novels :-)
Thanks for such wonderful stories!"
