Reviews - What do customers think about Footsteps?
Got caught up in it Jul 31, 2006
DiAnn Mills and I both did some work over at River Oak Publishing and as authors do, traded books. I opened it up one evening to give it a quick read and the next thing I knew it was 2 am. I read it straight through. She's a masterful author who keeps you hanging on every word. My heart really went out to the lady in this story. I can hardly wait to read "Leather and Lace."
Highly recommended! May 19, 2005
DiAnn Mills' Footsteps gives the reader a close look at the downward spiral of a woman caught in tragedy. Debra Patterson's two children are abducted by their father, Michael, and all three disappear into thin air. And so begins the heartbroken mother's descent into despair, loneliness, and self-pity. Slipping into alcoholism, Debra struggles to deal with her shattering losses, while at the same time trying to shut out the quiet voice of God.
After alcohol fails to fill the void in her life, Debra turns to service, giving her time and energy to helping other children in need. However, at last forced to come face-to-face with her own needs, she turns to God and responds to His persistent call.
Although her new relationship with God gives her a fresh lease on life, Debra's problems are not over -- her children are still missing, along with her husband, Michael, who she struggles to forgive.
Footsteps takes the reader into the heart of the struggle, through the desperate first hours of searching, to the long, protracted efforts of first the FBI and, finally, a private investigator. Debra Patterson must rely on God and rebuild her trust in man if she is ever to see her lost children again.
Footsteps by DiAnn Mills will make you hold your children just a little tighter at bedtime. Highly recommended!

A great read Apr 18, 2005
The characters in DiAnn Mills's novel, "Footsteps," are vivid, and the storyline if emotionally gripping. The inspirational theme in this book is woven in nicely and brings to light the true source of forgiveness and patience as a distraught mother learns to trust God during a most difficult time.

You Will Finish This One Feb 8, 2005
Debra Patterson is the failed trophy wife. Her high-rising husband lawyer, whose mental and physical abuse have driven her to vodka and orange-juice pick-me-ups, steals her two children and disappears. With the support of her Christian friends, her new-found faith, and a devout heart surgeon who comes into her life, she struggles to locate her missing children, a task made more difficult after her husband turns up dead. "Footsteps" is a fine story whose well-paced suspense will compel you to read to the end.
A Masterpiece from Mills! Jan 16, 2005
You don't want to miss FOOTSTEPS by Mills. She is wonderfully talented at making a story flow. The suspense made me turn each page until I was caught up in the story; I couldn't put the book down!
