    Dear Debbie, In have faithfully read every book of yours. I feel like I know all of your characters, which is because your writing skills are wonderful. I am sitting here today, bereft because I lost my husband of 58 years. I feel like half of me is missing. I just “celebrated” my 80th birthdate with my wonderful daughters, who like me miss their Dad so much. I am trying hard to move on, but the loneliness hurts. I continue to keep myself busy but at the end of the day I am alone.
    I guess by know you are wondering why I am writing you. This is why: your characters have gone through so much, but, of course, come away being stronger. I want so much o be that person. I know your characters aren’t real, but are they based on people you know? Anyway, thanks for the hours o enjoyment reading. I have ordered all your books. Janet Hirschfeld

      Dear Janet,

      You are someone worth celebrating. I hope you do take the opportunity to celebrate yourself and your 80 incredible, beautiful years, maybe with a slice of your favorite pie or a crisp, cool glass of water. Simple joys can be the greatest gifts if you allow them to be.

      The strength in you is what identifies so strongly with the characters. What you love about them exists like a seed in you. Water it. You have got this!

      Happy reading and happy 80th!

    Debbie, I love your books. I am thankful my friend got me started on the differ series many years ago. When I just need to get away from everyday stress and relax I just grab one of your books lounging in my livingroom. I just enjoy being in Washington State for the moment.

    I love all of your books. I live in a retirement community and when I have finished my books, I donate them to the library here so others can enjoy them as well.

    I love your inspirational writing and can hardly wait for your new books. I keep & reread some as over the years I forget so many details. Being 77 years young probably has sone bearing on this I think my “forgetter” wins more than my “rememberer!” Love you & your family!!

    Dear Debbie Macomber,
    I have enjoyed reading so many of your books. My favorite of course, is the Blosoom Street series. There is just something soothing along with the mysticism in each book! Your books have brought me through very tuff times in my life. I started reading them about 24 years now. My husband was a medical doctor who was murdered by his patient. For many years I could not read or think clearly. I took care of our two daughters and pretended I was doing well for them. I cried many days and nights, hiding this from our young children ages 7 & 10. I still grieve for the love and times we had together. It has now been 25 yrs since then. We had known each other since 6th & 7th grade and dated in high school and college. We got married before med school, etc.
    One day I was in Barnes & Noble and looking for a good read. Your book immediately caught my eye and I was so happy with your book. Every time I go to B&N now I look for your books.
    Thank you for being such an inspiration to so many, and especially me.
    Sincerely,
    Bobbie

    I still have memories of my mother. She passed away one day before her 58th birthday. She was the best cook, a generous person, loved laughing, and enjoyed the neighborhood kids. She also made the best tortillas. To this day, some of those “kids” still remember her fresh made warm tortillas with butter. The kids always knew when she was making them and showed up at our house for their tortillas with butter. Even now, I can taste and smell them myself.

    Debbie I am such a fan ( I know you hear that all of the time. The other day one of the young people I work with ( she’s 20- I’m 61)
    made a comment about reading & how she hasn’t picked up a book since high school, I said to her you don’t read anything at all & she said ” No & I don’t care too” how sad I thought. She then said to me” well how much time do you have to read & what or whom do you read?” I told her in my bed room that I have somewhere around 140 of your books and about 30 misc books & about 40 Dean Koontz’s books. I though that she would have a heart attack! She said to me “what’s wrong with you”? Nothing, I like to read. I also took a picture of all of the books & showed it to her t a few days later, she was speechless! I also told her that I have read all of Dean’s books, about 75 % of yours and about 10 out of the other misc ones. I told her that there are more for me to buy & read and I hope to have them all read before I die. She just looked at me & walked away. I just though you might get a kick out of my little story.
    Hugs & keep your wonderful stories coming, (please)

    I’m a long-time reader of yours. It especially helpful for me to lose myself in one of your novels when tragedy has invaded my life. My husband, Dale, died in an airplane crash when our children were only 1 yrs old & 2 1/2. It’s been a long journey by myself, but they are 42 & 44 now. Thank you for your wonderful uplifting stories & helping me lose myself in your fabulous imagination based on real life. I taught business classes for high school & college, but not enough for retirement so still working at age 73 by selling antiques & working in an antique store as well. Thanks again, dear one!

    Your blog is delightful, Debbie. Thank you for sharing your life with your readers. I’ve been enjoying your wonderful books for many years. It has been especially fun when they’ve come to life on tv in a series or movie form! (I hope there will be more to come!) I love that many of your characters and their stories are in Washington state or the Pacific NW area which is where I live. Lucky us! I also love that not all your characters are young. I think you and I are about the same age and you know as well as I that we still have a twinkle in our eyes and romance in our hearts!
