A NEW FIVE STAR REVIEW FROM A KINDLE READER:
This is truly a remarkable story written by an incredible woman who endured the worst tragedies but still kept strong. It truly hits home with so many similar things going on in my life. Two girls with CF and seeing what it does to them and the family is devastating. I would recommend this book over and over again for anyone that needs strength to carry them thru the times when you feel like giving up. I loved it and have the greatest respect for this woman. Thank you for an enjoyable read!
Your life is an inspiration to me. I've read the book twice and written down notes to remember. I'm so impressed that you retained your faith during all the tragedies. Thank you for sharing your life. It meant more to me than I can express.

As I read your story, I couldn't help but marvel at the strength God gives us when we most need it.
Thank you for an inspiring story of courage in the face of overwhelming despair. A "must read" for anyone who thinks things can't get worse, or will never get better!

All I can say is WOW!!! The story was beautifully written and made me better understand the heights and depths of your roller-coaster life. I can never truly understand the depths since I did not live them but you presented everything so wonderfully. You are so talented. I hope you will continue your writing. Thank you for sharing so intimately with your readers. Glad for the happy ending!! May it continue to be "and they lived happily everafter."

I have just finished reading your lovely book. How beautifully you write! I had anticipated that the story would be so sad and heavy, but I was very wrong. Sad moments - yes, but also many joyful ones. Such a moving tribute to Heather and Holly, and to the resilience of love. Sharon W. Krumpe, PhD
I have just finished reading your book. I was hesitant to start.... Once I began reading, I couldn't put it down. Terry, it is truly a love story.... Mac G., VA
Terry! I couldn't put your book down, really. It was so engaging and overwhelming. I'm glad you wrote your story. Lynda, VA
Terry's words are heartbreaking...yet inspiring. I opened up the book as soon as I purchased it and couldn't put it down! A Mosaic Heart is a good reminder that the human spirit can endure and flourish despite unimaginable tragedy. Thank you, Terry- for reminding me that I am not alone. My own daughter's illness has the power to level me at times. However, hearing your voice reminds me to seek the positive....and the power of the light.

I learned more from the book about the intensity and unremittingness to parenting a child with a chronic illness or disability (otherwise-abled in the land of euphemism). The fragility of life is there before you at all times in a hard, grinding way that one sympathizes with but can't really imagine: an important lesson, explicitly depicted in the book--a lesson for care providers, medical staff, and friends.

I 'devoured' the book ... oh what a sad but heartrending story.
