.. .."I see some interesting (sucky word I know) parallels between the struggles of Ashley and Shawn-obviously their situations are different but that common denominator is the struggle of the human spirit to overcome what, for many people are experiences that they can never overcome, and of course the fact that both of us are writing from places of being deeply hurt and wounded by life, yet making those hurts and wounds into material that can make the world a bit better place. It's great to have company in such a struggle."
.. ..-- In reference to the similarities between Shawn, protagonist of Terry's Printz-award-winning novel, Stuck in Neutral, to Ashley, the protagonist of Courage in Patience. ....
.. .."Courage in Patience is a gutsy, well-crafted story. The best literature, for me, always come from the pain we survive and grow from."
"Courage in Patience is a powerfully written and unforgettable story of survival and growth--the best of the human spirit."
"My admiration for Beth Fehlbaum is enormous--she has taken a painful chapter from her own life and turned it into a work of art that will help many people--congrats Beth!"
