A New Review of Lubelia Alycea – Historical/Romance/Fiction!

It feels like an early Christmas present when I receive a review! It is always a joy to receive a new review of any of my books. This review is of my newest novel, Lubelia Alycea One Hundred Years, a(n) historical/romance/fiction. (Note: a or an can be used before historical.) Thank you, Kindle Customer, for the lovely review!

Kindle Customer5.0 out of 5 stars What a life!Reviewed in the United States on May 10, 2021From a child immigrant from Madeira, Portugal to America with her mom & older brother, to a grown woman, Lubelia had to be brave & strong to make it through hard times. Her mom could not bring her twin brother with them to America, so she is lonely for him while growing up. She finds love twice in her life, raises a family, has heartache & happiness. Janice has done a wonderful job making the reader feel like you are right there living the experiences with Lubelia.
I received this book in exchange for my honest review

If you want to travel along with Lubelia Alycea and her family to her new homeland- America check out this book on paperback and Kindle, coming soon to Barnes & Noble. Thank you for your kind support!

Lubelia will make you feel as if you are there with her, experience her sorrows, pain and heartache and grow to be a strong, resilient woman. Would any of us be able to survive what she did? Would we be as stubborn and resilient and bounce back? Would we be able to overcome any adversities and still come out on top? Find out what Lubelia did over her 100 years on this earth. She will surprise you.

Thank you to all my readers who have already purchased this book. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did writing it. My heart went into this book and part of my grandmother too. She was there beside me in spirit as I told a story about a woman of her time. I hope she is happy that I did this and all the liberties I took from my creative license in embellishing this story. She may have been shocked and surprised of what I wrote at times but I’m sure she would have approved overall. (I hope!) I was shocked over some of the stuff I put in here too! Ha! I don’t know how I come up with these things! I guess it’s my crazy imagination!

Blessings & Hugs! Stay Safe, Stay Well and God Bless!
