  1. Attention all lovely readers:
    The Coin (A MUST READ NOVEL) by my talented and dear friend Maria Elena Alonso-Sierra will mesmerize you from sentence one with wonderful diction, beautiful imagery (setting in France), and a powerful suspenseful plot twist! It WILL keep you up clinging to every moment!

  2. When I read a great book, I CANNOT put it down until I'm done reading it. Well, I opened the cover of "The Coin" yesterday morning, and got done with it about an hour ago, cursing every time I needed to go to the bathroom or tend to the needs of my family! I was completely engrossed in the story. Actually, I felt like I was living it! Before I was done with the first chapter, I was already trying to figure out which actors could play the roles of each character for the big screen! Maria Elena, what great gifts you have! Not only an amazing teacher, but a wonderful storyteller! I cant wait to read "The Book of Hours" and please remember to put my name on the list for the Red Carpet premiere!!!! XOXO, Zayre

    Can I rate it 6 stars??? This book is so good I could not put it down! I found myself thinking about Richard and Gabriela throughout the day and just wanted to read, read, read! It has action, suspense, romance, passion and a twist of events that keeps you glued to the book and the story. I can't wait to read The Book of Hours and would love to see The Coin turned into a movie! Highly recommend it! A++++
