As her live seems to go from bad to worse, she finally breaks away to start a new life of her own and she is soon able to return to Missouri and Arkansas in search of her lost family.


Excerpt

The pain in Nicky's arm cloaked her mind in a foggy haze that lifted and cleared slowly as the pain ebbed away. She looked around the hospital room and wondered how long she had been asleep. Some of the children had been here beside her bed a few minutes ago--or was it hours. Then she had remembered that her doctor had been there too. What was it he had said? Her head began to ache and she strained to remember.



Professional Reviews

Nicolina--review by The Megaphone Magazine
This beautifully crafted tale vividly portrays southern life for a young girl in the 1930s and beyond...Sandra E. Graham's talent for storytelling makes writing look deceptively simple as she weaves together the threads of Nicolina's life and times in this novel. Certainly a book to curl up with on a cold fall evening. By he end of it, Nicolina feels like she's a part of your family...such is the place where she carves a niche in the reader's mind and heart.

Nicolina--review by author Christine Cordaire
A wonderful, well-written story of real people who come alive to live in your memory and heart.
