My friend and I read over both versions and talked about what we thought. They both are effective and WILL prompt people to continue reading.
The difference is that version "A" reads as if it is a novel which is "Full of inspiration, transformation and confirmation". It is implied that the reader will grow from this story.
Version "B" reads as if it is a self-help book with which your audience can learn the steps necessary "that can be used to transform any story that threatens your peace and happiness" via a fictional story.
I hope this makes sense Kathy! Much love to you!
The message of this book goes down so easily that some may not even recognize they are receiving a blessing as they take in its wisdom. Well done!
