Five Star Reviews for Brittle Diamonds 

Loved this book!!!

Walker hits on every cylinder. She is moving, compassionate, and insightful with her characters. I hated to have the book end. Especially liked the loving Christian faith and grace to live it out. – FreshCoast

Tangled Plot!

This book has an unusual plot, interwoven story line that is absolutely believable. This one could be the non-fiction recounting of a dilemma faced by a man of the cloth, rather than a work of fiction!  Hats off to the author for a great and entertaining book. It draws the reader into its web of circumstances and one feels the frustration of the characters.  I look forward to more of her works. – Dan S.

Great read

I was “hooked” by page 3. Very interesting and complex character portrayals. Suspenseful until the very end. I could not have predicted the outcome. I was torn between wanting to finish the book so I could find out the ending, yet I didn’t want the literary experience to be over. Days after completing the novel, I was still thinking about the characters and actually hoping for a sequel. – Linda C. O’Donnell


Well written and inspiring tale of a small village populated by people we all know: the know-it all, the grieving, and those with struggles of shame. The book is definitely one to read. – Kindle Customer
