I found this book to be somewhat cliched. The religious bent makes it awkward for those who do not follow Christianity.

I find poetry books quite a challenge to read and I have to admit I haven't read many. This one being a religious poetry book will not be very high on my 'to read' list. However, I appreciate the fact that, besides religion, it discusses other themes as well, like mental illness. Thank you for the review!

This book of poetry appears like it contains loads of relatable poems. The author has conjointly used the book as AN avenue to point out trader's to trust in God. though after I saw the title i assumed it absolutely was Danielle Steele's plaything. this is often an excellent review. i will check this one out.

I know the review said you don't need to be Christian to enjoy this book but I am not a fan of reading about spiritual journeys, faith, or books that reference religion. I added this book to my not interested in reading shelf. I enjoy reading poems though and think a lot of people will enjoy reading this feel-good book.

A poetry book revolving around the author's spiritual journey sounds inspiring. It is nice that non-Christian will learn appreciate the beauty of nature via the poems. Not for me, but I am glad you enjoyed the book despite its few inconsistencies. Thank you for the review!

Spiritual poetry is a feast of wisdom for those interested in this genre. Not my cup of tea, though. Thanks for the thorough review.

I struggle to read a full book of poetry. I love them, but to read one after another would not be of interest to me. It sounds like this author has a deep love for God and this is consistent throughout the writing. Great job on this review. I enjoyed learning more about the author and the book.

A beautiful spiritual journey narrated in the poetical form, and the author's firm belief in God and her praise for His creation is evident in her poetry.
