“I don’t recall the last time I was reading a book that I literally could not put down until completing it, until I got “When Gulls Fly Low”. This work is so well written, with a story that will have you turning each page, eager to see what the characters will experience next. The ending I expect will have you wiping tears of joy from your eyes as a result of it’s beauty, as I did mine. A treasure to read and re-read.”
