The Thank You Song

From Under His Wings

As dusk settled over the woods, the urgent call of a cardinal broke the silence. A male redbird fluttered at the kitchen window where I was drying the dishes. My husband and I went outside to see what was disturbing him.

He flew just ahead of us, continuing his agitated cry. He landed near a female on a nest. It took a moment for our eyes to adjust to the twilight. As we scanned the trees, we found the source of the bird’s emergency. Almost invisible in the tree above the nest sat a huge owl.

Author Endorsements & Reader Reviews

Endorsements and reviews encourage author’s hearts and assist us with the other side of the writing life – marketing. Without their input, other readers would have a much harder time finding new authors and deciding what books to read. Thank you to all of my readers!

DeKok's new mystery is one of those books that haunted me from page one. Meaning, when I wasn't reading, the story kept drawing me back, making me wish I could set everything else aside and just finish it! I loved that Olivia wasn't the usual stereotypical heroine. In fact, most of us would be appalled at her secret life. Yet, as the story unfolds and her life begins to unravel and secrets come out of the closet (literally), you can't help but wish for her to find her way. The twist and turns of the intricate plot line made for a fascinating story. I'm so thrilled this is book one of a series and look forward to reading more about these colorful characters. I'd rate BETWEEN THE LIES right up there with titles by two of my favorite authors, Chris Fabry and Creston Mapes. Well done, Joy DeKok! Bestselling author, Diane Moody

I was enthralled with this story from the beginning. Characters that are intriguing yet not always likeable. A storyline with unexpected twists and turns. A difficult topic that most inspirational writers shy away from, yet Joy handled it with gritty honesty and unexpected humor. By the end of the story, my original view of the main characters had completely changed. Joy is a gifted storyteller which made this reader turn each page with anticipation, right up to the last page. I've thought of these characters many times since, a true compliment to Joy's ability to create interesting, multi-layered, authentic people I was anxious to know more about. Looking forward to reading more of this series! Stacy Monson - Awarding Winning Author
