All of us begin our day with a prayer to Almighty. So Nagueyalti’s words struck me as I read the lines, “She prayed out loud to be honest, decent, pure, innocent but prayer, she knew was the heart felt longing of her soul” as in Prayer.

After going through this book, Readers, I am sure, will definitely agree that David has written his poetry in all honesty. The title of the book is so apt because he has confessed on all the areas for which he is guilty in life, “I am guilty of nothing but loving you” as in Confession. You will get to also feel his stark contrasting words in his Apology, “I don’t apologize for something I meant when I said it but please accept this apology for never saying I’m sorry”.

This book is full of Kristen’s memories. It’s going to be a customer delight for the Readers to read them one by one just like opening a Pandora’s box.

Michael L. Newell’s book, Each Step a Discovery, speaks volumes in a few words. Having read all of Newell’s books, his newest book, Each Step a Discovery, is yet another wonderful read. As he explains in the forward, the book contains what Newell calls miniatures, his own form of very short pieces. As I read through the book, I found myself carried inside moments of awe and reverie. Mountains, forests, rain, moon, and fields are common subjects in the book. But the writing does much more than simply show readers the natural world, it brings you into the heart of a specific moment and enables you to dwell there, feel its spark, its life, experience its unique quality.

I just loved these two catchy lines which speaks volumes on the meaning of life, in general, and glorifies the life of a woman. Dr. Jennifer, I think this is something very striking and adds more context to your book.

“An amputated past not only starves the present but poisons it”, lines by D.R. Wallace have literally set me thinking.

I am surprised by the fact that how one Greeting Card has inspired Sam to write this novel that runs over 500 pages! He has appreciated Birute Putrius for the card. This is something beyond imagination. The book looks like reading memoirs of his childhood, and growing up and where he talks about his father who is an American soldier and his mother, a Nun. Basically, this book talks about his life and his perceptions towards life.
