Julianne Donaldson is so talented and has a way with words. Whether it’s fiction and you laugh then cry or this book of poetry where you feel the gut wrenching pain and loneliness she mentions. Because you’ve felt it too.
This is such a beautiful book of poems of hope and to remember to rely on the Lord.
The poems and short essays make for a quick read and will make the perfect gift. Or to pull out on a hard day to remind yourself that you’re not alone. Julianne is so raw and vulnerable about her past pain. You can tell that she has wrestled with hopes, wants, needs and expectations and still she finds joy.
There were a lot of great quotes from it but this I think was my favorite
“Hope breathes on The cold embers of tomorrow Until a new fire blazes.”
Thank you to Net Galley and the publisher for an ebook copy of the book. These are my own thoughts and opinions.
