Reviews for The Ground Beneath
“I admit, I jumped into this book with gusto because I enjoyed All Things Rise so much. And I’m glad I did. This follow-up book is just as enjoyable and entertaining as the first. While not a direct sequel, The Ground Beneath features characters from All Things Rise and provides the reader with a deeper look into Jessica Walker’s life. But fans of All Things Rise will be happy to see Cole and Audrey again in a different capacity.”
“This novella was everything that is awesome about life, love and feminine power and resilience. By the time I was done reading I felt like I was ready to conquer fears and climb mountains. This was a book that reminded me of all that was beautiful about the potential of love and what the miracle of love could do to heal the human spirit. This is a novella filled with rich, complex, multi-dimensional characters and a plot that kept me reading from the beginning to the end. Danger, love, growth, and hope stir together to create yet another masterpiece from Missouri Vaun. I absolutely loved this five star story from a wonderful writer and I really can’t wait to read more from her. A standing ovation for Missouri Vaun on this one.” — a. rose
