What They Say

"​An interesting read....Heidi Smith tells a good story."

                                                                            George Randall

"After enjoying Heidi's first book, 'After the Bombs', I was looking forward to reading the rest of her story, and she delivered with 'Forks in the Road'.  As in her first book, I found the stories’ time lines were clear and easy to follow and the book was hard to put down."
