Review by Maddy D.
About the Book:
A collection of poetry about one woman’s journey through abuse and healing.
A really nice collection of poetry. The poems flow well as well as vary in structure and in length. None of them came off as awkward or even overly religious- which could be a turn off for some readers. I enjoyed the positivity that took over the majority of the work and the enlightened affirmations that punctuated every few pages. I really enjoyed the branch graphic on every page, it’s neat how the branch reflected healing- I haven’t come across that very often in published works.
All in all a mostly positive light read.

About the Author:
Diamante Lavendar has been in love with reading since she was a child. She spent many hours listening to her mother read to her when she was young. As she grew older, she enjoyed reading novels of all genres. Diamante believes that everyone should try to leave their own positive mark on the world, and to make it a better place for all. Writing is her way of leaving her mark—one story at a time. She began writing in college and has published poetry in anthologies over the years. Once her kids were grown, she wrote as a form of self-expression and decided she wanted to share her stories with others. Most of her writing is very personal and stems from her own experiences, and those of her family and friends. She writes to encourage hope and possibility to those who read her stories.
