A little reminder

I think it’s time to remind my readers that I have written a few books besides all this blog stuff.

Here’s some information about a couple of them:

Papa’s Shoes: A Polish shoemaker and his family settle in small-town America – an award winning historical novel published in April 2019. Here’s a few comments about this five-star rated book.

“From an insightful storyteller, Papa’s Shoes, is a heartwarming story of courage and love. Author Madeline Sharples has created an epic journey with intriguing twists and surprises along the way. From days of old in Poland to cultural and economic realities in America, this is an awe-inspiring novel about families, generational history, and the incredible power of change. You truly won’t want to put it down!” –D.A. Hickman, author of Ancients of the Earth: Poems of Time

“Author Madeline Sharples tells the intimate story of an American family, of immigration, tragedy, renewal, and love with grace and the delicate touch of a poet. There’s a raw kind of sweetness in this rich and epic saga.” –David W. Berner, author of The Consequence of Stars and A Well-Respected Man

“An immigrant family’s braided history – its conflicts, losses, and secrets – come to life in Papa’s Shoes. With loving attention to detail, Madeline Sharples transports readers from a Polish shtetl to the Illinois town where Ira and Ruth settle, and shows us the intimate workings of their marriage. This family’s triumphant journey to the American Midwest will inspire you long after you’ve closed these pages.”–Eleanor Vincent, author of Swimming with Maya: A Mother’s Story

Leaving the Hall Light On: A Mother’s Memoir of Living with Her Son’s Bipolar Disorder and Surviving His Suicidepublished in July 13, 2012

This memoir continues to be a best seller. Here’s a couple reasons:

“A moving read of tragedy, trying to prevent it, and coping with life after.” – Midwest Book Review

“Moving, intimate and very inspiring.” – Mark Shelmerdine, CEO, Jeffers Press

“Poetically visceral, emotionally honest. I will be a better, more empathic psychiatrist, and a better person and friend after reading this extraordinary memoir.” – Irvin D. Godofsky, M.D.

Leaving the Hall Light On is “a remarkable book and it SHOULD be read.” – author Jessica Bell
