ON THE EDGE #BookReview – A Lesson In Aloha – FREE for Download


 

ON THE EDGE Kindle CoverR. R. Harris is a witty wordsmith who weaves an evocative page-turner of mystery, adventure, and romance in ON THE EDGE: OF LAVA, LOVE AND TERROR.

Having lived through the lava scare on the Big Island, I can say this book totally captures the climate of that time. For those who don’t live in Hawaii, experience the suspense of living on the edge of an exploding volcano, multiplied by international terror and unrequited love.

But, there’s also inspiration to be gained, as an elderly Hawaiian County Councilwoman explains:

“Pele does not destroy, she creates, and what she creates is even greater than before, so maybe we needed a wake-up call to change our way of thinking. Maybe we needed to quit throwing around the word Aloha and then in the next breath curse our neighbor, or those who are different than us. Maybe we need to start living with Aloha, putting it into action and putting smiles on our faces. Maybe, Pele saw all of this need and was just helping us get started.”

ON THE EDGE is available FREE on Amazon Kindle through Sunday, August 5, and is also available in paperback.

Namaste!

Balancing the Root Chakra while enjoying DIGGING IN #Book Review


Screen Shot 2018-04-09 at 10.45.13 AMDigging In is an entertaining, engrossing and inspiring read. The protagonist, Paige, has just lost her husband in a horrific car accident, losing a perfect relationship, comfort and safety.

Now, her job is at risk also, she has a troubled teen, and is totally losing it until she starts digging in her backyard. The neighbors don’t like the big mess in a groomed lawn community. But with her Root Chakra totally unbalanced (loss of security), gardening is just what she needs. 

Author Loretta Nyhan expresses the emotions of grief in a profound way:

“Death was final, but grief wasn’t; it was a dirty street fighter who rose again and again even when I thought I had successfully knocked it to the ground. King of the sucker punches.”

While dealing with the death of her husband, the death of Paige’s boss (and his crazy son who has taken over the ad agency where she works) puts our heroine on the verge of losing her job of 17 years as well.

But learning to grow food from a new-found friend at the Farmer’s Market leads to new discoveries and lots of food for thought. She learns to tend fruits and vegetables and also how to better care for herself and move forward for both herself and her son, Trey:

“I’m learning. I’ve realized that’s what I should be doing at this stage in my life.”

It’s a fun ride seeing how something totally not in Paige’s nature helps her grow and succeed in all areas of her life.

Digging In is available now on Amazon.com.

Namaste!
