Experience joy and beauty throughout this book.
Hearty and wholesome. A delightful meal for Mind, Body, and Soul. An inspiration to us all. I simply could not put this book down. The wonderful lyrics and exciting prose in this book entice the reader to sing and dance to the rhythm of love and laughter while savoring the splendor of authentic foods from Jamaican to southern cuisine.
Joseph Spence has outdone himself in this book which offers a wide variety of poems that makes reading interesting and even amusing. His wife Sheila is an outstanding and highly esteemed poet on her own. Her work lends a feminine touch to their work. Gentle words, mellow thoughts and a deep understanding of love flow through her poems filling the reader with heartfelt warmth, tenderness and nostalgia.
Their son Jonathan adds excitement and youthful enthusiasm to the pages of this book. His poems are practical and realistic with vivid imagery and an easy flow of thought that evokes childhood memories of bright-eyed wonder and innocence lost.
What a team. There is certainly strength in unity.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book twice and I have given it a special place on my bookshelves. It is great for after dinner reading with friends. This book is certainly a great work of art and a family's vision of God's wonderful Creation. I recommend this book to all who enjoy beauty of the mind, body and soul and to all who love to use their imagination to the fullest.
I look forward to reading more of this family's work.
