Drama! Only you and I may call it a snapshot of life on any given day. It's so real, it's scary.

Have you ever had a conversation with someone you just met and felt like an instant connection was made because you had so much in common? Have you ever heard a song playing that seemed to speak to your life, your situation, or your feelings at that very moment? Ever read a book that captured your attention—engaged you—and
you couldn’t put it down? Well, that’s what I’m hoping to do with the series of stories contained within these pages.

Here you will find the stories of four seemingly different women, and some of the trials each one experiences. But woven into each story you will find lessons, points of view, perspectives, and ideas that will hopefully allow you to
step into their shoes and see things a whole new way. Hopefully you will find that we are not as different as one may think, but we see and respond to trials differently, and therefore we can learn a lot from one another.

Each story begins and ends at a pivotal moment in that woman’s life, giving you a snapshot of where she is at a particular point in her journey. Follow along and see who she is, where she’s from, and what she’s about; then see how she handles that and other trials as they arise. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself relating to her right away.

There’s truly nothing new under the sun. Throughout the ages, and right down the street, someone somewhere has undergone something like what you have or will, and it is that bit of knowledge and experience he or she captures and shares that can help you through your own trials, or help you be a source of wisdom and encouragement for someone else.

It is my goal to bring these women to life, and use them as examples from which other women can gain insight, inspiration, courage, wisdom, ideas, and anything else that empowers and enlightens. Women are a wellspring of life and knowledge. It’s just up to us to tap into the power we have and disburse it accordingly, and responsibly.

Please enjoy the edifying buffet I have prepared for you here, and feel free to share with me your thoughts. Thank you.

 

Excerpt
Strength, virtue, success, beauty, love—attributes and gifts we wear with pride and really don’t mind anyone noticing. In fact, those are usually so pronounced, we couldn’t hide them anyway. Many of us covet these attributes, and many of us will have them. But on the other hand, fear, insecurity, anger, sadness, uncertainty and disappointment are things we usually bury deep within ourselves and try to hide from others. We don’t want them to know those vulnerable parts of us, and we often deny them to ourselves as well.

The thing is every one of us undoubtedly carries elements of the latter set at some point in our lives. Regardless of what we do with what we have, and despite whom we become, those are the things that link us in the human experience. Follow along with Charlie, Grace, Tammy, and Audrey as they navigate through trials; discover their talents and flaws. You will either nod with familiarity or shake your head in disbelief at what they encounter. Which lady will you most relate to? Does her experience mirror one of your own, or is she more like you want to be?

Whether in the secret lonely place that longs for contentment, or in the place that conceals a spicy, sexy vixen whose quest is to be seen as desirable, or in the quiet place that seeks spirituality and oneness, or even in the place where one undergoing trials and turmoil can find peace and push through, we all have stuff—simply put.

Those are the kinds of things that make it so important for us to connect with the right people, read the right stories, and hear the right accounts. It is through sharing that we encourage, enlighten, uplift, inspire, and reassure others that things may not be so bad and can in fact get better. In the words of Audrey James, “Humans are put here to live, and to love the experience of living. That’s what makes the ugly parts of life worth living through. They can’t be the focus of life, or life sucks.”

I sincerely believe that if we spent more time sharing with the intent of helping someone else, we’d have less time to focus on the ugly parts of life, and therefore we would ourselves be encouraged. Let’s try it.

Her words dance.
Nothing New Under The Sun
The main characters are excellently written, which is what I have come to expect from Tonya Floyd, she writes very unique, four - dimensional, and compelling leading people each and every time, this book is no exception. I love the four stories. The relationship in each stories develops in such a natural, believable and genuine way that is not always easy to capture or portray. The author did a wonderful job of drawing the readers into all four stories. All in all, this was a great book, one of the best I;ve read in a while. I would recommend anyone to buy it. Who know you might see your self in one of the stories.


Really, there is nothing new under the sun.
It's been a long time since I've read a book so captivating and one that I've finished in such a short period of time (3 nights). Nothing New Under the Sun is a thoroughly engrossing, simply riveting book that I am very happy to have read. I found myself constantly picking up the book to read at every opportunity that I could. I was on the edge of my seat wondering what would happen next. This book is definitely a page turner. Tonya, girl, you put your foot in this book. I am really looking forward to a sequel....soon I hope. Thank you.
