Trudy Stiles’ debut novel, Dear Emily, received stunning praise from the indie community. Read Dear Emily before you read Dear Tabitha and see what these incredible bloggers, reviewers and authors all saw in this book.


Natasha Tomic, Natasha is a Book Junkie: “This book has the power of touching the reader so deeply by giving us unique and very precious insight into the world of child adoption, from both viewpoints of the birth mother as well as the adoptive parents. I walked away at the end of this book feeling like my heart had grown tenfold, overflowing with so many emotions, and desperately hoping that fiction, in this case, had found its roots in real life.”


Mollie Kay Harper, Tough Critic Book Reviews: “I was blown away by the story’s originality. I was blown away by the romance and passion. I was blown away by the heartache and pain. I was blown away that I whole heartedly invested my emotions into the lives of these two women.”


Gitte & Jenny, Totally Booked: “What a truly breath-taking, compelling and beautifully stirring debut from Trudy Stiles. The writing was truly beautiful and the story which shows the past as well as the present was so raw and gripping my heart was so full of cracks by the time I’d finished.”


Chris’ Book Blog Emporium: “I love when a book can grip you right from the first few pages, pull you in and not let you go until the very last page. Trudy has written a page turner. Her debut novel knocked my socks off and she is definitely an author to check out.”

Nic Farrell, Flirty and Dirty Book Blog: “I’m not sure what I expected when I started Dear Emily by Trudy Stiles but one thing is for sure, I had no idea how emotional of a read it would be. Not your fluffy and mushy love story, Dear Emily was so much more.”


Becca Manuel, Becca the Bibliophile: ”It’s a love story that is so profound and yet it is hardly ever spoken of. It’s the story of two women, torn apart by life that had left them scarred and a bond that they will forever share in a little girl neither have met yet – Emily.”


Rebecca Shea, USA Today Bestselling Author: “When a book leaves you thinking about it days later – that’s a good thing. This was a 4.5 star before because it was good, really good…as in amazing. It’s now a 5 star because it did something to me…it left me wanting more – needing more. That is the sign of a 5-star amazing book.”


Jen Skewes, Three Chicks and Their Books: “I am not even sure that I can begin to express just how much I loved this book and how truly amazing and touching it was. Dear Emily is by far one of my favorite books this year. It is one of those books that will stay with you.”


Jesey Newman, Scmhexy Girl Book Blog: “Dear Emily is a beautiful story about love, lust, family and the tragedies endured by Carly and Tabitha, our leading ladies. Trudy Stiles has woven the lives of these women both past and present, in such an amazing way.”


Amanda Maxlyn, author of “What’s Left of Me”: “There are books that will pull you along as you read, and then there are books that will literally pull you into the story as you read. Dear Emily is the book that will suck you in with the first sentence and not let you go until the last word. Trudy Stiles has a gift. She created a beautiful, yet pained world of two strangers that become connected in the most stunning way.”


JJ Rossum, author of “Thou Shalt Not”: “Well, Ms. Stiles, you really knocked this one out of the park. I loved it. Unique story line, characters you could root for and emotions you could really feel.”


Kelly, Perusing Princesses Book Blog: “Trudy Stiles has entered the indie writers world with an impressive boo – get ready for the shockwaves to hit, because this is one debut you do not want to miss!”


Kathryn Perez, author of “Therapy”: “With so many books out there today, it’s hard to find one that isn’t just a cookie cutter version of the next. I personally enjoy books that are more than a “surface” read. I like to walk away from it having gained a message. I like to feel the story and characters. Trudy Stiles does just that with this book. She conveys with her writing a beautiful story that grips you, touches you and stays with you.”


Tiffany Marie, Everything Marie Book Blog: “The entire story will leave you in tears and provoke strong emotions from you. It is very touching and so personal, it’s hard not to love this book. For a debut novel, this book really hit the mark.”


Dee McGee, Booze, Bookz and Bad Boyz: “I absolutely loved Dear Emily. Trudy Stiles debut novel impresses the heck out of me. She took what could have been a straight forward dark, tragic plot and turned it into a beautiful story about coming to terms with adversity.”


Virginia, Love N Books: “Trudy’s writing is detailed, emotional and beautiful. She tugs at your emotions and makes you feel as if you know these characters. You can’t help but feel for these broken women and wish their heartache would end and they would find happiness.”

You know me. You know who I am. What I am.

Damaged. Confused. Alone.

You feel sorry for me. You pity me.

You know what I’ve done. What I’ve given up. Who I’ve given up.

You try to understand what I’ve been through and how I can go on with my life. But you can’t possibly understand.

I’ve lost too much. Sacrificed too much. Given up everything so that I can find myself.

Well, I’m done.

I’m done walking away from everything that matters.

It’s time for me to heal.

It’s MY TURN to earn…
