Book Review: CLOVER BLUE: A Novel

As we are getting closer to the highly anticipated publication of CLOVER BLUE by Author Eldonna Edwards, I felt a Reblog was necessary lest anyone has forgotten what a great novel CLOVER BLUE is. And a book is only as good as its author; Eldonna Edwards is one of the very best. The publication date for CLOVER BLUE is 05.28.2019. I have provided links in my original blog post to help you with your pre-order. I’ve said it before, many times; CLOVER BLUE is a 5 STAR coming of age literary and historical fiction novel.

Edwards’ 5 STAR debut novel THIS I KNOW will be available in paperback 04.30.2019. I have provided a link to my book review of THIS I KNOW in my COVER BLUE book review, and have also provided links in my review of THIS I KNOW to help you with your pre-order.

Book Review: Running Home

“I beg you, to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.” - Rainer Maria Rilke

My anger is real and just.

Carolyn Riker’s blog “My anger is real and just” is the most honest blog about feelings I’ve had the pleasure of reading. Honest and raw in feeling. Well said, Carolyn! Thank you for your honesty, and sharing it with the masses.

Equally annoying are the sexy click and bait posts.

I’m tired of the BS and the steady stream of artificial-flavored-super-happy and perfect people. How is that even possible – every-flippin’-day? (I have a hard enough time getting clothes on.)

My rose-colored glasses have been dipped in real and that’s when I stop for few seconds because this wicked heart-throat-lump forms.

Maybe just maybe I’m ranting and raging because (big sigh)…

Epiphany

I had an epiphany a couple years ago, and yet I did not realize it was an epiphany until two or three days after I had had the epiphany. I was scrolling down my ‘News Feed’ on Facebook, revisiting status updates, and I paused to read my response to a friend's status update. While I … Continue reading Epiphany
