A collection of short stories and poems that tell a tale of growing up
on the wrong side of the tracks of life and seen through the eyes of two authors.
The words expressed in this book are from the heart, eyes and soul of a desire to live
a fruitful life. Regardless of their past, a struggle to gain a positive perspective are what
the authors attempt to reveal. With this book, the reader can see for his or herself that
life for some is less desirable, and bring their own interpretations to the stories and
in the hope that it will open the door to healing and the realization that no one is
ever really alone.
"Like it states on the title page, this is a collection of poems, short stories, and slices of
life. Both authors offer a selection of prose and poems in the three sections of the
manuscript. The collaboration of both authors seems to work quite nicely, each offering
their own distinctive voice and presenting readers with an underlined message of hope.
The poetry and prose is full of life's trials and tribulations, its struggles, laughter, tears,
and most importantly, its spirit to push on. Whether it's the daughter that escapes abuse
at home and returns to help before anyone else gets hurt in "The Secret Diary" or the
"Guardian's" good deeds, the book's heart felt messages shine... ...the tone and writing
style is clear and precise. Both authors' have their own style-playing with form, meter and
rhyme. In addition, both use metaphors creatively in their work. Many poets are stuck in
one genre or form and this collection and its variety makes for an interesting and
enjoyable read.... ...I think this collection of work will appeal to a wide variety of
audiences, both young and old. It's uplifting and it brings hope. This book explores life's
journeys and will be a rewarding read for many, many people. Good work! I liked the
collaboration-it made for a more interesting read." -- Editor of Iuniverse
