A VERY SPECIAL GIFT

Southern Scribe Reviews:

Jaclyn Weldon White leaves her true crime genre to write the history of a tract of land, which turns out to be a unique story of a Georgia family who displayed characteristics of entrepreneurial spirit, generosity, joy, and the ability to overcome hardships. The family anecdotes are gems reflecting period customs and Emily's as well as her mother Bessie's spirited nature. It turns out that A Very Special Gift is a very special gift indeed.


FROM THE HEART - STORIES OF LOVE AND FRIENDSHIP

Pat Conroy, author of The Great Santini, The Prince of Tides, and Beach Music:

Just the right balance of heart-warming, positive, feel-good stories. Just what American needs during these turbulent times.

Charlotte Hughes, author of more than 30 novels, including Hot Shot and A New Attitude:

Compassionate stories that will tug at your heartstrings, uplifting and inspiring.

THE EMPTY NURSERY - THE DISAPPEARANCE OF HALEY HARDWICK

Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

[The Empty Nursery] reads like a Patricia Cornwell pageturner. White provides a fascinating glimpse of how law enforcement thinks and works -- from methodical and time-intensive procedures to the moments of startling insight that can swiftly propel a tough investigation to its conclusion.


Southern Scribe Reviews:

The Empty Nursery is the chilling story of every parent's worst nightmare; a memorable, emotional account of the case from several perspectives.


Citizen News, Peachtree City, GA:

In The Empty Nursery, White has provided indepth insight into the case from two different perspectives -- the police investigation and the anguish the mother went through in the aftermath of the incident.


Henry, County (GA) Daily Herald:

Jaclyn Weldon White takes us on the incredible journey of Haley's mother. What sets The Empty Nursery apart from other true crime books is that it really captures the mother and the rollercoaster of emotions she experienced -- her sadness, her anger, her frustration, her relief.


WHISPER TO THE BLACK CANDLE: VOODOO, MURDER AND THE CASE OF ANJETTE LYLES


Macon Telegraph:

White walks you through each killing, but never comes right out and tells you that Lyles is in the process of mixing arsenic into some buttermilk. She gives you just enough detail for you to figure out the whole thing on your own. The case captivated Macon, the South, and even made headlines across the nation, and White manages to captivate the reader the same way.


Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

Jaclyn White paints a vivid portrait of the mysterious woman and recreates the mood of the time. Brilliantly researched.


Southern Scribe Reviews:

Jaclyn Weldon White tells a spellbinding tale of southern gothic proportions with finesse and historical impact.


Valdosta (GA) Daily Times:

White conjures up an exciting true story of black magic and murder.
