Praise for Apples of Gold

"Lisa brilliantly weaves the important message of purity into this powerful little parable -- a must-read for every young woman you care about!"
- Shannon Ethridge, M.A, Best-selling author of Every Young Woman's Battle

"Lisa Samson's Apples of Gold is the perfect 'apple' of a story-a beautiful tale on the outside with delicious substance underneath! In an age when too many girls are confused about what real love involves, mothers and daughters should not miss this important parable."
-Angela Hunt, author of Uncharted "A beautiful tale, simply told, Apples of Gold shines with truth. Give this book as a gift to the young girls in your family. You'll be glad you did."
-Robin Lee Hatcher, author of A Carol for Christmas "My fifteen-year-old daughter stayed up late to finish Apples of Gold. She loved the story's fairy-tale format, and the message came through beautifully, yet subtly."
-Deborah Raney, author of A Vow to Cherish and Remember to Forget

"Apples of Gold is an allegory with a hook that will catch the imaginations of young teen and pre-teen girls. As the father of a lovely daughter and grandfather of eight beautiful granddaughters, I want every one of them to read Apples of Gold and cherish its truths."
- Eric Wiggan, author of The Gift of Grandparenting "We speak of sex to our girls at a younger and younger age. Lisa Samson has taken the heart of a crucial concept, wrapped it in a lovely story, and delivered a message that cannot be stressed enough, soon enough."
-Donita K. Paul, author of DragonSpell and DragonKnight "Lisa Samson's Apples of Gold is a lovely and touching parable about purity and self-respect, a gentle reminder to our sons and daughters that they have been given a precious treasure to cherish."
-DeAnna Julie Dodson, author of In Honor Bound, By Love Redeemed and To Grace Surrendered "Apples of Gold is a 'precious gem' of a story. Sweet and touching with a powerful message every young girl should hear."
--Roxanne Henke, author of After Anne and With Love, Libby "Lisa Samson has created a delightful story that can be read for sheer enjoyment by a wide age range of readers. But Apples of Gold offers parents a much needed format to go beyond the story, through the Parable, and straight to the heart of what every young woman needs to discuss with her parents-sex. If we don't talk to our kids about sex, there's a whole world out there waiting to do it for us-and they won't offer God's perspective."
-Dandi Daley Mackall, award-winning and best-selling children's author "Apples of Gold is powerful and persuasive tale that encourages a young girl to value her virginity as a gift entrusted to her by God. Highly recommended!"
-Kathy Herman, author of the Seaport Suspense Novels, the Baxter Series, and Poor Mrs. Rigsby "Lisa Samson, in her masterful style, pens a beautiful allegory in Apples of Gold. This lovely book touches on a sensitive topic with the beauty and respect it deserves."
-Gail Gaymer Martin, award-winning novelist for Steeple Hill and Barbour Publishing "Apples of Gold captures the heart as well as the mind! As the mother of four young daughters, I am especially grateful to Lisa Samson for crafting a story that conveys profound truth while also drawing on images from the fairy tales that my daughters love. By doing so, Lisa has given us an effective and powerful tool to share the importance of purity in a world that pushes anything but. I'm sharing this story with my daughters now, before they're teens, so that when the time comes, they concept of purity will be one they easily understand."
-Marlo Schalesky, author of Empty Womb, Aching Heart and Only the Wind Remembers "A relevant story for today's world, Lisa Samson's Apples of Gold offers encouragement and hope to those readers who would take up the challenge and learn from someone who's been there. This story is a must read for the preteen and teenage girls in your realm of influence."
-Diann Hunt, Author of RV There Yet? "Lisa Samson's delightful parable presents morality and consequences in a fresh light - one that makes the reader say, 'Of Course!'"
-Carolyne Aarsen, author of The Only Best Place
