Here are a few of the earliest reviews coming in from generous readers like you. Don’t take my word for it!
“I could not put this book down…the best read of something you should never have to read but makes you feel glad you did.” BJ L.
“I got my copy yesterday and finished it last night! It was such a page turner. Faith is such an excellent writer. I smiled, I gasped, I was so wrapped up in it! I highly recommend it!!” ~Morgan H.
“Read Now I Lay Me Down in one day. Couldn’t put it down. I don’t read much because we stay so busy, but I think you got me started again.” ~Molly A.
“It’s hard to be so excited about such a truly terrible story, but Faith has used her words in the most respectful and informative manner, with descriptions that are as chilling as the crime itself. It’s a page turner of the most tragic topic.” ~Lara B.
“I ripped into the envelope, and behold! There was a magnificent block of carefully designed and cut paper with fabulous words all over the paper. On the inside was writing of the most transformational kind, written in the hand of a goddess.” ~Linda P.
“I just finished this book and I just got it yesterday…you don’t know me from Adam but I thought you did an amazing job.” ~ Dana B.
“Duvall is reading the new Phillips crime expose’ as I paint lazy circles in the sky at the little art gallery that could. We read the first 40 pages and were just slayed.” ~Murv J.
“So far I’ve said Awe, I’ve had chills, and shed a few tears. Wow!” ~Julie S.
“Got mine today. Read to page 50 and forced myself to stop … if not I will be up all night finishing it!” ~Cherri B.
“I loved it. Excellent work and a story that can ONLY be about Central Oklahoma, only as told by an Okie…” ~Joe B.
“Order your copy today! I read it cover to cover in one sitting … I couldn’t put it down! Now I Lay Me Down is a true crime novel about the tragic murders of three young girls from my rural community in Oklahoma. The book chronicles the girls’ deaths, the intense investigation that ensued and which spanned a period of almost six years and the eventual prosecution…” ~Marlene L.
