The stories in this volume about the wonderful miracles that people have experienced while doing their Family History, are just as gripping as those in the last volume. And people keep sending Anne more! I think these volumes will continue and will occupy substantial space in the Celestial Library.
Writing these books is such a labor of love. You can feel that love by reading only one story of one miracle. Imagine how you will feel after reading the whole book.
It will make a wonderful Christmas gift for anyone on your family tree. If they're not already doing their genealogy, they will probably be moved to begin because of Anne's faithful role as a "teller of stories." G. G. Vandagriff, author of five genealogical mysteries and many other books in various genres.
From the Author
Compiling Volume Two of True Miracles with Genealogy was an inspiring and joy-filled experience. As when compiling Volume One, I went to bed each night with such peaceful and happy feelings as the day's stories lingered in my mind. I still get goose-bumps and teary-eyed when reading many of the accounts, even though I have worked with them all countless times.
This volume is longer than the first, and contains more old photographs. I feel it is perhaps the best book I have published so far, and am thrilled to know it is being read by so many people.
Heartfelt thanks to all who contributed stories, to my professional editor, Tristi Pinkston, and to all who are now enjoying the book.
