Here's what other readers have said:
"We enjoyed your new book 'Christmas Angels'! The stories
are very evocative. The attention to detail, together with
the economy and specificity of the detail create a rich, layered
world. We hope you have a lot of good luck with it. "
Vickery Turner and Michael Shannon, Los Angeles
"I LOVED Christmas Angels. Read it while visiting back
East in my solitary room with the snow and barren trees outside.
It was an excellent companion. Beautiful work!"
Katherine Doughtie, Los Angeles
"Angel Key Ring"
I did so enjoy Christmas Angels . Your writing is very strong,
because you put such power into your verbs. That is so often
the stamp of the amateur: passive verbs, way too many adjectives
and an abundance of exclamation marks. But your verbs are
active, your imagery original, and your characters so very
real. I was most moved by Angel Key Ring especially by the
letter written to Zack by his long-dead mother. Very, very
touching. You produce such an overwhelming volume of work,
yet your standards never quaver. All in all, it's the quality
that most impresses.

"Angel on a Rope"
"Mara Purl's writing shows the wonders of the heavens
are a metaphor for the wonders in our lives. Her insightful
story sheds light on both."
– Kerry M. Joels, Ph.D.
Former Curator, National Air & Space Museum
Best-selling Author, Space Shuttle Operator's Manual
"Last Angel on the Tree"
"Last Angel on the Tree is a charming, soft-hearted
read for anyone with a penchant for Christmases or cats. Mara
Purl has captured our gentle yearning for a sweeter holiday
season. Although the story is full and complete, as is the
case with all well-written stories, I still want to know what
happened next. "
– Kathe Tanner, The Cambrian
On ANGEL ON A ROPE
"Your stories continue to amaze me. What wonderful visual
writing! As a painter, I find the words in your stories mirror
so many of my own thought processes. The flow of your stories
is like looking into a clear pool of water that reflects many
of my own artistic experiences. Awesome!"
– Mary Helsaple, Artist & Documentarian
Colorado Council on the Arts Governor's Award,
Mara Purl's story is beautifully told, with exquisite detail
and gripping scenes that take you into the lives of these
characters in a suspenseful and riveting way that will keep
you reading rapidly to find out the ending. She has a wonderful
way with words and images. "
– Sam Summerlin
New York Times Syndicate, Former President
"Hardware Angel is beautiful. Mara Purl writes elegantly.
She had me from the start. The story brought back a flood
of memories. For example, most of us felt we could control
nothing out there in the jungle in combat. We were helpless
and that feeling was overwhelming. It was less for the officers
than the soldiers as we did determine where we would move.
Her making the soldier say that the few square inches of his
carving was the only thing he could control was uncannily
accurate. GREAT READING."
– M. Gen. Burn Loeffke
"Hardware Angel is a wonderful story to come out at
Christmas... but great anytime. Semper Fidelis.
