Reader's Review about

'River of Stars, Nights of Jasmine'


"She magically and effortlessly dances her readers between worlds — ancient and contemporary, east and west, traditional and “new age” — as she tells the story of Kara, a courageous yet vulnerable healer, spiritual seeker, and sacred site tour guide. Her novel left me longing to make my own pilgrimage to Egypt. I highly recommend the book; it’s well worth the read!"
