Message 26 - Liz Harte
Loved the prequel. I had already read the book. The prequel was so touching with the dream and then on the zip line when her pink sneakers were on him and he said it was better than the dream. It was also good to see a better side of Trevor and how loving Nora was. My daughter used to dance on my husband's feet. It is a fond memory for him. She was hit by a car when she was 24 and killed. The dancing scene in the prequel brought back so many, fond memories. Thank you.

Diane   Liz, I'm so sorry for the tragic loss of your daughter. It's hard to imagine the pain. I'm happy The Dance Begins brought back positive memories for you.

Message 27 - Katie Edwards
Diane, as I was researching books to discover my next escape I came upon Necessary Lies. That was just a few days ago, but I opened it and couldnít put it down. The writing, characters, research and detail are not only remarkable but inspiring. Iíve worked as a caseworker and continue to advance my education to find ways to better make a difference outside of a box. My true aspiring passion, though, is to write and this connected deeply with both. I just finished the book and Iím wired with excitement when I should be sleeping. I canít wait to discover another one of your wonderful novels.

Diane   Katie, thanks for your kind words and I'm so happy Necessary Lies could inspire you. I hope you WILL write and get as much pleasure from it as I do.

Message 28 - Linda Bowman

Message 29 - Anna Marlow
Diane,
I have recently read Necessary Lies, and researched more on the Eugenics Program. Being born and raised in North Carolina, I was ashamed to learn more of the deep pain the state caused to innocent people. It broke my heart to read the stories of Mary Ella and Ivy Hart. I understand they were fiction, but it still was heartbreaking. It continued to break my heart as I listened to the victims of the state sterilization. Thank you for writing the stories you do. They are eye-opening and lovely. They really inspire people to look around in the world and see what has happened. I really appreciate your works.

Diane   Thanks for your kind words, Anna. It touches me that you did more research on your own. The compensation program is bogged down right now. So sad.

Message 30 - Kelly B.
Diane,
My mother introduced me to your wonderful, engaging books. After she and I both read Necessary Lies, it acted as a catalyst for a conversation about a long forgotten family secret: the NC Eugenics program. We concluded that the unethical program very likely directly impacted two of my great aunts. Thank you for providing a door for us to discuss this very sensitive topic within our family.

Diane   Kelly, thanks for sharing this. I've heard from other families who were touched by this program. I hope that your aunts were still able to have fulfilling lives.
