Yes, a Poet Wrote this BIGGER Book Review
Reading what follows, you might want to give YVONNE credit. Because choosing poetry takes courage.
Have you read my memoir yet? Then maybe you remember the part where my big, huge crush from High School — Mark Seligson — did what? He created a banner and displayed it out the school window. (Where everybody could see it.)
“The active mind needs poetry. Join the Walt Whitman Society.”
Mark got into trouble for that act of teenage courage. But he sure inspired me.
May YVONNE’S book review website inspire you! Because you’ll find plenty of reviews there. Not just the following one.
Hey, here it is!
BIGGER Book Review at Glass Goat Publishing
I want to begin with the fact that this is an intriguing memoir about life, growing up, and spiritual awakening. The author’s story begins at birth, a page in each of our personal unwritten memoirs most of us don’t remember. Even when I focus my intent on childhood, I can only get back to about age 5.
Bigger Than All The Night Sky is laced with childhood trauma, lessons in failure, messages from God, and all of the typical things we each experience as we make our way through childhood. Rose’s story is a tale that evolves with her spiritual awakening, a life that leads her to be a future spiritual leader. It’s an inspiring story for people like me, who are on their own everlasting spiritual journey.
It’s an easy and quick read, as you get sucked into poetically written words of the author’s life. She is a poet, not just a spiritual guide, after all. This is one of the things that attracted me to the book – souls alike.
Bigger Than The Night Sky is a lifelong tale, but it won’t take you a lifetime to get through it. What you will find is that it inspires you to follow your dreams, to find your path. This is a profound read – if you’re ready to change your life, I highly recommend it. We all have a greater purpose; by learning how Rose found hers, maybe you’ll be able to do the same.
The author herself sent me this amazing book for my unbiased review.
