Hi Dave, IT HAS ARRIVED, this arvy, in fact.
Thank you, Thank you so very much for sending me a copy, especially at that cost.
It looks incredible, first thought, bet ya your Monique is smiling down from heaven.!!!!
She would be so dam proud of her man.

Have managed to cook supper, in between reading, wow, the love you shared with your beautiful Monique, brought an ache to my heart.
You are similar in nature to me, when it comes to that "L" (Love) word.
I adore and respect, with all of my heart, hence the reason why we hurt so much,  when life changes beyond our control.

Job well done Dave, a hell of a lot of work, with endless rewards for so many.
I am certain, there will be men and women out there, who will be changed, after setting eyes on your book.
Life is so short, as we both know, and to always be positive, as hard as it can be at times, gets us through.
Many thanks for allowing me the priviledge, to share part of my life, about my precious Chris.

Love and big hugs to you three, think about you so often.
Will be in touch.

I HAVE FINISHED YOUR BOOK.
MY HEART BROKE, AS I READ OF YOUR UNDYING LOVE FOR YOUR MONIQUE, AND WHAT SHE MEANT TO YOU.
I FEEL AT A LOSS TO DESCRIBE HOW DAM SAD I FELT, READING BETWEEN THE LINES,
I COULDN'T BEGIN TO ABSORB THE HURT YOU AND THE GIRLS EXPERIENCED.
I REGRET NEVER HAVING THE DELIGHT OF MEETING HER.

WOW, THERE ARE AMAZING WOMEN IN THE WORLD,
THANKYOU FOR HAVING A DIVERSE RANGE OF STORIES, ALL UNIQUE
IN THEIR OWN WAY.
I FOUND YOUR BOOK VERY HONEST, I FELT ANGER TOWARDS THOSE WHO HURT OTHERS,
WAS DEEPLY MOVED BY THE STORY OF CULTURAL DIFFERENCES.
I WAS OVERWHELMED WITH JOY TO READ JESS HAS MARRIED - WHAT A WOMAN - WHO MADE THE RIGHT CHOICE TO NOT LET "THEM" TAKE THE LIGHT FROM HER LIFE.

THIS BOOK SHOULD BE ON THE SHELVES IN COUNCELLING CENTRES, LIBRARIES, AND RAPE SAFE HOUSES.
I HAVE NO DOUBT, THERE ARE WORDS WITHIN THE PAGES FOR ALL WOMEN WHO ARE HAVING A ROUGH TIME OF IT.
ONE CAN'T HELP BUT HAVE THEIR SPIRITS LIFTED, AND FORSEE LIGHT AHEAD OF THE DARKNESS, AFTER READING IT.

YOU ARE ONE SPECIAL MAN DAVE METZLER, AND YES I CAN HEAR YOU SAY, NO, NOT REALLY.
MY PRAYER FOR YOU IS - SHARE THE LOAD, WHEN YOUR HEART HURTS, KEEP LOVING YOUR GIRLS AS YOU DO, (A BLIND MAN COULD SEE HOW THEY ADORE YOU) IT WILL NOT ALL BE IN VAIN.
ONE DAY THE VOID IN YOUR HEART WILL BE FILLED .
THANKS AGAIN, LOVE SHAZ XXX

Dear Dave
I would like to thank you for writing this book and to tell the stories of such amazing women and will look forward to a second one.
I am a wife, a daughter, a mother and a sister and nothing in this world has given me more pleasure than being a mother and watching my two daughters grow into the beautiful women they are today.
Once again thank you for sharing the stories of these wonderful women, and thank you for being the Man that you are.
The kindest of regards
Linda Jones

Dear Dave,

Thank you so much. I received the book about an hour ago and cannot put it  down! I was telling my sister in JHB about it and she asked me to forward  your details.

Please will you send her your bank details and the price and ask for her address. I am sure she will order at least one copy. Suggest she buys one for each of her daughters for Christmas gifts!!!

Regards
Diana

Good morning Dave
I checked on the SA Post tracking section on Friday and it showed that the book was still in transit from Krugersdorp to Muldersdrift – I was a little disappointed I must admit! I have a friend in an old age home in Muldersdrift and she shares my post box to save herself some money and lo and behold when I arrived for our regular Saturday night visit (we love listening to Eleanor Moore 702 Band Stand every Saturday) there was an envelope perched on the couch waiting for me! I was ecstatic!
When I got home I decided to begin reading the book – oh my word Dave!!!! I cannot really explain in words how I feel when I read the book – so many mixed emotions – firstly I “feel” so much for you and your daughters having lost Monique and then on the other hand I feel so elated at what her passing has helped you produce – Miracle Women. I also feel a lot of sadness for the Miracle women and what they have endured it makes my story sound like a fairytale – it also transports me back to my story and I am soooo grateful to be where I am today happy, fulfilled and contented and above all so grateful for what I have in life!
I have already shed tears and I have only started reading but cannot wait to carry on – weird! The book so far has given me the motivation to help so many more women than I do at present – I am starting a women’s group on the West Rand soon as well and now feel so inspired! Women are truly FANTASTIC!
I will do a full review next week but I think I will use the above to start promoting it now – what do you think?
For a start I want to buy each Miracle woman in my life - family and special friends a copy for Christmas and hopefully some men will also read it!
I will let you know how many copies I will need.
Will you be in Natal in December – I am visiting my family in Kloof and would love to meet you!
I wish you EVERYTHING of the very best with “Miracle Women” – it will create miracles and I am sure it already has!
Have a wonderful day!
Lots of Love

MIRACLE WOMEN

This is a heart-warming read about women who overcame the adversity in which they found themselves. It left me with feelings of empathy for those who so generously contributed their stories.

It was wonderful to note how these women blossomed after they had escaped the entrapments of society and followed their dream. Those who have healed themselves are truly able to help others heal the wounds sustained on life’s journey.

The story that stood out for me was Andeline's. As a child, the thoughtless comments of adults smashed her possibilities of a healthy self-esteem. Fortunately the lesson she learned from such emotional abuse is to love self absolutely and unconditionally.

This is the most important and self-empowering lesson for us all to learn.

Thank you Dave for bringing women together.

Dear Dave

I am almost speechless and tearless after reading what you have written about me in your wonderful book. Your dedication is just too beautiful and I imagined Monique reading it and loving you even more, if that is possible?

I just wanted you  to know what a beautiful thing you have done in writing this book and including the miracle women within. I just wish I had my sight so that I could read it over and over and once more.

God bless you and the girls

Love

Dear Dave,
I hope you had a fabulous Christmas and New Year.
I have finished reading your book and it gave me so much more faith.
My son was born with ABS and it brought back the memories of when he was born and how I had to live through that. Now, he is a wonderful little boy and his missing fingers don’t bother me one bit!
You can read his story on the following website http://www.amnioticbandsyndrome.com/stefans-story-p-129.html
Hope you have a super day and thanks for writing such a wonderful book J
