About the Book
Hazel Eyes takes the reader on a journey to discover the personal life of the author and spiritual experience of faith. This memoir connects each chapter with common stories and supernatural events that the author experienced from childhood through adulthood. The topics she included go from her doubts and questions as a teenager, her traditions, studies, travels, engagement, motherhood, parenting skills, aging, and dying matters. The future of this book is to have a Spanish version to reach the Hispanic community and to keep reaching her English speaking fans.
