I bought your book on smashwords. I must say, I am only into chapter five but I can't put it down. It's so touching. Is this based on real life? I told my husband that I was sure some of it had to be. It's completely emotional and raw. Thank you for sharing this story. I look forward to more. Hopefully soon.
Thank you for your kind words. You know what they say... write what you know. ;) I'm working on a sequel now. Stay tuned for updates. You can also connect with me on facebook. The link is on the top right corner of the front page. Again, thank you!
This book is truly fascinating. My best comment would be: "The simplicity of style disguises the depth of meaning." I have so much to do today, yet I can't put this down; a book doesn't always captivate me this much, but it is one of those that has me mesmerized. Thank you, Dina, for this opportunity. Wow.
I am both honored and humbled by your words. Writing a book is a lot like raising a child. You birth an idea, nurture the story and release it into the world, hoping it does well. Thank you for reading my work and for posting your comment; it means so very much to me.
I am truly moved by the raw emotion, integrity and character of Maggie! This book evokes so much emotion and speaks of the depths of love and commitment to family that Maggie holds. I recommend this book to all my fellow readers, you won't be disappointed. I could not put it down, I cried, I laughed, I sympathized and after finishing the last chapter I was left feeling saddened that there is no sequel yet! I am so excited for book number two! I am so touched to have been able to look into the past and life of someone who already means so much to me, now I just feel like we grew up together and am so happy that I was given that insight into such a beautiful person! Dina Redmon I am so happy to know you and so proud of your accomplishment! It is way better than I ever imagined! WAY TO GO!!!!
Vickie... your sweet words brought tears to my eyes. <3 Thank you, from the deepest parts of my soul, for not only taking the time to read my novel but to write this review as well. I am honored to call you my friend and iSister (get it? Giggle! Internet sister? ;) )
To speak of it again is a beautiful novel of a modern day American woman from childhood to adulthood . As you read Maggie's story you become her friend, and are captured in her journey. You feel betrayed by family and hurt by lovers. You ache with her sorrows and rejoice in the small victories. Vivid and steamy sexual encounters take this creative, hard working young woman into a mature adult female. The authors smart wit and humor will have you captured in this " hard to put down " tale. A definite must read

Thank you Toni! This truly touched my heart.
Let me just start by stating that I am not an easy reader to captivate.
I do love raw, in-depth, non-fiction, emotion jerking novels; and this book offered it all!
I found myself not being able to put this book down, I wanted to know more, read more, experience more. I was completely intrigued!
When I finally came to the end, I too, was deeply saddened that it was over, that there was not a sequel out, yet. I even contemplated reading it again, just to stay captivated in the story told.
I would recommend this book to anyone, and have. It is one of a kind! You won't be able to put it down until you have read it front to back.
Thank you for that experience! I look forward to many more!
Thank you Brandee! This truly touched me <3 I am working on the sequel and plan to re-release "To Speak of it Again" with the sequel by the end of the year :)
felt amazing to travel along with Maggie on her quest to enlightenment and love. Loved the breath taking visuals I got from the well written story. I cannot wait for the sequel. Dina Redmon is a gifted well verse author. I cannot wait to read her again
Thank you so very much Jessica! I should be releasing the sequel by the end of the year! :)
I just finished "To Speak of it Again" and I have to say that I absolutely LOVED IT!!! I was reminded of my childhood growing up in Colorado and going to the Garden of the God's and Manitou Springs. I laughed and cried with Maggie as I was taken along on her adventures. I can't wait to read the sequel. Great job Ms. Redmon!!!
Awww, thank you Sheyann! <3 I loved the time I spent in Colorado! Out of all my travels, I do believe that is the most beautiful area I ever lived in. Sequel will be released by the end of the year but in the meantime, I have a new book coming out in about two weeks entitled "Chasing Circumstance."
I started reading "To Speak of it Again" and was captivated from the very beginning. I have always been the murder mystery type reader. So, I was a bit hesitant to read this one. However, I'm glad I did. It was such a good book. I would have to wait till I got home to even pick it up because I would have just sat at my desk and read it instead of doing my work. Awesome job Dina! I can't wait for the next book.
Thank you so very much Anita. Working on the next one!!! :)
Absolutely loved the book! Your writing style constantly kept me wanting more and needing to know where Maggie's life was headed. I look forward to she sequel!
Working on it! Thanks for the love <3
I am so in love with your writing. This book has so many emotions that run through you, It is like you don't know either to cry, laugh, or sigh. I have finished the book, and I am left wanting more. I have never read a book that I have connected on on so many levels. I could feel as if I was living that life with you. You are such a strong and an amazing woman that I seriously look up to. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for letting me read that book. I am Thankful and Honored to Call you My Friend, and My Sister. Love Always Jacquelyn
Truly thank you, Jacquelyn and welcome to my "interfamily"! :) Always nice to have another sister <3 Also, thank you for taking the journey with me. Sometimes, it's nice to know we're not traveling alone.
I just love your books..Your style of writing is so very refreshing and different from the many many books that I've read. Maggie's story had me crying and laughing at the same time...I could have easily just kept on reading and reading...I'm so happy that there will be a second book to her journey. And Chasing Circumstances had so many passages that just spoke to my heart and soul that my kindle looks like a rainbow with all of the highlighted quotes...
This brought happy tears to my eyes. Thank you so very much! <3
To Speak of It Again - Read Nov 2013 *****
This was such a roller coaster of emotion, I laughed and had tears, got mad, and squealed, I really was able to follow this as if it were a friend I had known forever, just when I thought I knew where it was going, something else took place, thank you for sharing your story may it reach many and touch all, can't wait for the follow up in the near future.
Chasing Circumstances 7/29/14 I took my sweet little time with this one I know...oops :) I got this book way back in November I believe and finished it today - procrastinator that I am. This is a read I will totally recommend. It is written very soulfully and with heart. You will learn to appreciate a good bath too if you haven't already. I will not however fill you in on that you will have to read for yourself. This book takes you to places inside your heart and mind and has you rediscovering feelings you might have even forgotten about. Please take the time to cherish this read and by all means share it with your friends too. I can't wait to read what this author has coming NEXT!
