  1. Julie,

    I wrote to your mom yesterday and thought I’d write to you personally. I received your book Saturday, after waiting almost two months!!!!! I read it in a day and a half. Boy, it was so good!!!! I got a book for my daughter and two daughters-in-law. By the way, we are all related to YOU!!!! I am your mom’s cousin, Jean Sandifer Wales.

    Thank you for sharing your talent of writing. Can’t wait for the sequel.

    I also have the children’s books for all my grandkids and myself. God is with you in the Day and God is with you in the Night.

    Keep on writing!!!!!

    Cousin Jean

    PS I think you have met Casey Rogers, another cousin???

    • Hi Jean, Thanks so much for your kind note and for giving Millie’s story a chance. I’m truly honored you read it and even more thrilled to hear you enjoyed it. I’m also very glad to hear from you after all these years. Thanks again for your kindness and for sharing Into the Free with those you love. Blessings, julie

  2. After reading the article in Desoto magazine, I am interested in having you review your book to Friends of the Library in New Albany, MS. We do not pay authors but we pay gas. You may also sell your books. I know our members would enjoy meeting you. We meet every 3rd Tuesday of the month. If you are interested in visiting us, please contact me.

    Thank you,
    Anita Buster, President
    Friends of the Library
    New Albany, MS

  3. Hello Julie, I must confess that after reading 2/3 of your book Into the Free I was interested in finding out who could create such a magical story. I wonder do you consider Harper Lee as a large influence on your writing? Hope to hear from you and finishing your wonderful story.

    • Neil, Thank you so very much! I’m honored beyond belief that you would mention Harper Lee, as she is indeed a legend. To Kill a Mockingbird has been one of my absolute favorite books since middle school, so yes…I do consider her a large influence on my writing. I’m thrilled you’ve asked that question. Thank you for giving my debut novel a chance, and thanks for reaching out to let me know what you think. Happy weekend, julie

  4. Julie,
    I enjoyed your book and will eagerly await the sequel! Very colorful writing, and I sincerely appreciate the omission of foul language and sex scenes. Best book I have read in a while!

    • Hi Cindy, Thank you so very much for reading Into the Free and for your kind support. I’m glad you enjoyed this story and I’m lucky I signed with a wonderful publisher, David C Cook, who didn’t force me to include all of those raunchy details in the book. It wasn’t necessary, and I think it would have cheapened Millie’s tale. I’m so glad you agree. I’m thrilled to hear you’ll stick around for the sequel and I appreciate you spreading the word about my debut novel. Cheers, julie

  5. Hi Cindy,

    I have to say this book is my favoite of all time and one that I know I will go back to again and again. I love your writing style, you are truely a talented writer. You have the ability to make the story come to life.
    I longingly await the sequel to see if Millie reconnects with River and what happends next.
    I bought this book on my Nook and plan to buy a paper copy for my daughter.
    I tell everyone I know that reads to read this book!

    What a great movie this (is going to) would be!

    • Hi Lynn, Thanks so much! It’s amazing for me to hear readers say things like, “This book is my favorite of all time.” I’m truly honored and happy to hear you’ll stick around for the sequel. Thanks for sharing Millie’s story with others. Cheers, julie

    • Thanks so much, Lynn. I am honored to read your kind words about my writing style and excited to hear you plan to share the story with your daughter. Let me know whta she thinks! I hope the book opens up lots of discussion between mothers and daughters. It sure did for my daughter and me. Thanks for spreading the word about Into the Free and for planning to stick around for the sequel. Cheers, julie

  7. I was so sad to finish Into the Free. I have stayed up way too late these last few nights….couldn’t put it down but didn’t want it to end. I can see that front porch and Sweetie vividly in my mind. This was my first Kindle book and I am not sure how I feel about not having the actual book in my hand but I will be very happy to have instant access to the sequel. I miss Millie already….

    Thank you so much!

    • Hi Jen, Thank you so much for your kind note about Into the Free. I’m probably the last person on the planet who doesn’t yet have an e-reader, so I understand your desire for the real book. I guess I have to work on the computer, so I always look forward to curling up with the real book in my hands. Either way, I’m honored Into the Free found its way to you in any form and I’m thrilled to hear you enjoyed it. I hope you’ll come back to hear the rest of her story, which I’m writing now. Cheers, julie

  8. I just finished your book. Loved loved loved it! I was so sad when I finished it. The hope and faith that Millie came to understand by the end of the book was heartwarming. Please keep writing because I will feel honored to read anything you write!

    • Hi Brenda – I’m assuming O’Bannion is an Irish name, so I bet you’re somewhere celebrating BIG for St. Patrick’s Day today. I feel LUCKY to know my debut novel reached your hands and I’m humbled to read that you LOVED LOVED LOVED IT! Thank you so very much, and please do come back for the sequel which I promise I’m writing as quickly as I possibly can. I’m really enjoying seeing where Millie’s life leads her, and I assure you…she’s got a lot more to share. Cheers, julie

  9. I just finished Into the Free and just wanted to let you know that I loved it! Can’t wait for the sequel. :)

  10. What a BEAUTIFUL story! I am an avid reader and maybe a bit too cynical when it comes to reading. I usually opt for non-fiction reads, but I have to tell you that your book just made my personal top 10 list up there with The Kite Runner and Snow Flower and the Secret Fan! I love time-period works, especially when the time and place are researched and told accordingly! I feel that I learn more from these types of books than non-fiction! It’s also nice to read about your research on the Romanian Travellers and the Choctaws! I could’nt get enough and your story left me hungry for more! Can’t wait to see what you turn out next!!

      • Kay, the debate continues. Dr. Hancock says Romani is correct. My editors at Cook went with Romany based on their style guide and the official American English spelling of the word. I see it listed both ways throughout the research I’ve conducted, and I also switch back and forth without realizing it. I tend to spell it with an /i/ but in the novel we used /y/. Hope you enjoyed the journal posts under Extraordinary Extras in which I’ve posted lots of information about the travelers, etc. They’ll be more to come. Thanks again for your support, julie

    • Thanks so much, Kay. The three books you mentioned are three of my favorites as well. The Kite Runner, in particular, made a tremendous impact on me as a reader. I’m homored you’ve compared Into the Free to such literary masterpieces. I too prefer to read nonfiction and period fiction, and I love to LEARN something when I read and when I write. It sounds like we have a lot in common. Thanks for giving my novel a shot, and I’m glad you’ll come back for the sequel which we’re hoping will be released early next spring. Cheers, j

  11. I absolutely love your book INTO THE FREE! I can’t wait to tell all of my “reading” friends and family…I know they will love it also. I feel like I know the characters. This book has definitely strengthened my faith. Thank you! Can’t wait for the sequel!

    • Hi Holly – What a tremendous honor for me to see your kind post. I’m thrilled you enjoyed the book and excited to read you’ll be sharing it with others. This books has certainly relied on grassroots efforts to be noticed among such well-known authors. I’m happy you’ll come back for the next phase of Millie’s story and humbled to hear the book strengthened your faith. Thank you so much for your support and for reaching out to share your thoughts with me. Blessings, julie

  12. Hi Julie

    I happened across ‘Into the Free’, when searching through Amazon for a new book. My first shock was reading your lead characters name, as I share the same name – Milly Reynolds. So of course I purchased the book. My second surprise came when I discovered her father was an abusive alcoholic and her mother suffered accordingly….both experiences I also share. My heart really took a jump though when I read Millie’s father’s birth date, 30th July, the same birthday as mine and I am also 41 years old. What a coincidence! I have no idea what all this means but felt I had to share it with you. Thanks for the great book, positive messages and somehow connecting with me.

    Milly Reynolds

    • The REAL MIlly Reynolds! Wow! I had to read your comment twice, and then I had to show my husband. I’m blown away by it and can’t believe the many connections you have to this story. There’s a line in the book that says, there’s no such thing as coincidence. I can’t believe you came across this book and I feel so moved by your note. Thank you for reading Milie’s story, and thank you for letting me know how this book weaves its way through your own life. I absolutely LOVE my Millie, so I’m excited to learn there’s a REAL MILLIE out there somewhere! And who knew, you’d be in Australia!? Thanks, Milly! Have a wonderful weekend, julie

  13. Dear Julie,
    LOVED your book! What an outstanding first novel! It reflects your innate goodness. Can’t tell you how proud I am of/for you. I am sharing it with friends and will get another copy to share with my granddaughters and their moms. Everyone is enthusiastic about it, and we look forward to reading the sequel. Best wishes to you and your family!
    Love you,
    Ms. Sarah (Johnson); Walker, LA

    • Hi Ms. Sarah, I’m so excited to read your very sweet comment here. I am truly honored you even remember me, much less took time to read this book. The fact that you enjoyed it and are willing to share it with others is overwhelming to me. Thank you so very much! I will always admire you as one of those graceful, beautiful, kind southern women whom I looked up to with great awe and respect as a child. I sincerely appreciate your support and am glad you reached out to let me know you read Millie’s tale. Many blessings, julie

  14. Hi Julie –
    I just finished Into the Free. What a beautifully written, special book! And your first? Wow. God has certainly given you an amazing gift. Your descriptions were so subtle, so perfect. Toward the end I started highlighting sentences I liked (on my Kindle). I wish I had done it from the beginning. I really loved it.
    I’ve been writing my first book, a contemporary romance, for over a year. I was feeling pretty good about it until I finished yours. There are definitely levels of good writing! Your book is exceptional. Looking forward to the sequel.

    • Hi Sweet Georgianne, Wow…your kind note has surely brought me a big smile tonight. Thanks for reading Into the Free and for reaching out to me with your support. I’d love to see the sentences you highlighted on your Kindle, and I sure hope to read YOUR book soon. Keep writing!!! Everybody has a story to tell. Cheers, Julie

  15. Hi Julie,
    I recently read both of your books and I absolutely LOVED them! I had been searching for well-written Christian novels that talked about real life issues..and then I found your books! As soon as I started Into the Free, I couldn’t put it down! I finished the book quickly and finished When Mountains Move in a matter of days. Both stories are beautifully written. You are such an honest writer- Millie’s story isn’t sugarcoated because it’s hard to hear, you simply tell it like it is! I felt Millie’s pain and joy throughout both books and was so happy to be emotionally connected to her story. I haven’t felt that way about a book in a long time and I appreciated every part! I told all my friends to read your books and we have loved talking about Millie’s struggles and victories and exploring the belief of God’s perfect timing. I can’t wait to read more of your books!! :)

    • Hi Sarah, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! I can’t say it loud enough (cheering with enthusiasm and joy, of course). I really do appreciate your support and am super happy to hear you shared the books with your friends. No better gift to tell an author than you went out and talked about our stories. So happy to have you in Millie’s world for a while, and I hope you’ll come back to a brand new experience with Book Three (totally new project that has nothing to do with much as I so miss spending time with her.) Happy reading, j

  16. I like many of the other commenters here loved both your books and read both of them in a few days. I could relate to Millies life in many ways, and I hope you continue her story.
