Praise for Hills of Home:
"I think the book is a valuable detailed and most honest documentation of a part of Appalachia that has not been celebrated so well until now." --Earl Hamner, Jr., bestselling author of Spencer's Mountain and creator of the beloved The Waltons television series
Letter received April 20, 2018:
"Debbie, I received "Hills of Home" yesterday evening. Wow! You are a gifted writer. When I first started reading, I immediately began thinking of others that would treasure this book just because of the names and places involved. As I continued reading I realized I was being drawn into each circumstance just because of the way you tell the stories. I could identify with so much of what you have written. You write in a way that causes me to yearn for the life you write about. We have come so far, but you make it seem possible that maybe we could recover some of the way we were. I am going to be recommending this book to many people I know. I hope it influences them the way it is influencing me already. Thank you for the effort that I know you put into this literary project. I think it may be more important than you ever thought possible."
"I'm about half way through the book and I love it! It's almost as if the author peeked inside the pages of my own family history and pulled out stories of my growing up in the 50's, my grandparents and great grandparents. Then she opens the door to her own family heritage and invites us in. And we can all relate! Wonderful!" - Kay Wilson
"I really enjoyed the book. Even though I grew up almost a decade behind the author (Debbie), the stories brought back memories of my childhood growing up in Walton, WV and vacationing or visiting the surrounding West Virginia counties. After all, things do not change very fast (if at all) in a small town. I found myself laughing out loud a couple of times. I particularly liked the story of the bird that left a present atop Debbie’s head. The comment that was made “they sing for some people” made me laugh out loud, which resulted in me having to share that story with my wife and daughter; they laughed as well. I’m glad that I read this book. I’ll recommend the book to my friends and family." - Rick
