Hi everyone, I am sorry I have not been blogging lately, due to ongoing health issues. This has affected me in the form of good and bad days but hopefully, this will be sorted out in the near future. I apologise to the authors who have been eagerly awaiting their reviews. Anyway without further ado, let us look at my much belated book reviews.
The first book I have for you is …
“Forever and Ever Amen” by Liv Rancourt
This author presents us with the story of Molly, who has recently spilt with her cheating husband Ford. Molly is trying to catch her breath, after the emotional turmoil Ford has put her through and deal with the fact, she is still in love with him. On a night out with her friend Sam, she meets a dark handsome stranger. The next morning, she finds he has left his mark, in the form of a lovebite. Trying to conceal it from her teenage children, Flora and Jamie she feels intensely embarrassed but strangely thrilled too.
As she readies herself for the day ahead she notices another handsome stranger in her mirror. He introduces himself as Cass and tells Molly he is an angel and has come to help her. Cass explains the man she met last night was Zepar a demon, that wishes her harm; and that Molly, must face the three things that scare her the most, to escape his clutches.
Has Molly got the strength to get through the trails? Is she falling in love with Cass, a man who does not live in the physical world? As the author weaves through the main plot the subplots are seamless woven in. Her daughter’s infatuation with a vampire, the secrets between Sam and Flora. Can Cass put his feelings aside and help Molly defeat Zepar? This is not a genre I generally read but I found I could not put this book down. Well done, Liv Rancourt you have gained a new fan.
“Potato Mashi: The underground non dualist sensation
by David Virgin
This book is a quick read but full of helpful and useful quotes. The artwork compliments the style of the book. A pocketbook of wisdom that will lift your day. I see this book as reading material on the train to work or for your bedside table; or a day under a shady tree. This is a useful way to approach philosophy as you take a break from the stresses and strains of life. You will find yourself putting up post it notes around work or home for instant inspiration when you need it. Well done David.
Pain, Passion & Purpose, A guide to escaping Torment and finding Bliss”
by Marci Wise
This book touched my heart too many times to mention. Marci takes us through her own journey as she shares her own experiences with the reader, both as a scholar and as a human being who understands pain and bliss. There are times in everyone’s lives were we feel stuck, afraid, unable to move forward. It is here, that Marci’s strength lies, as she takes us by the hand through the some of the hardest journeys we will face. You will find yourself inspired by her courage, adventurous spirit and wisdom she guides the way with tenderness and understanding. This is not a book you will toss aside after a couple of chapters, it is one that will stay with you, long after you have read it. It will sit on your bookcase and be dog – eared as you constantly reread certain chapters. A practical and fact based informative book with a generous sprinkling of love compassion and wisdom. A must for your reading list and if you only have funds for a couple of books this week/month this should be one of them. Marci, well done, we are kindred spirits, you and I.
