Sunday Book Review – #Poetry – Epic Love Epiphany – My Life in Poetry by Lynn Swisher

Book reviews by D.G. Kaye

 

My Sunday Book Review today is on Lynn Swisher’s poetry book – Epic Love Epiphany – My Life in Poetry. The author’s journey through life from abuse to overcoming.

 

 

 

Blurb:

This is no ordinary poetry book, it is the story of my life written in prose. Nature comforts me and helps me to move forward, healing from years of emotional, spiritual and intimate abuse. I spent 16 years living in Saudi Arabia where I raised my nine children until relocating in 2009. I continue to struggle, it is an uphill climb but I vow to live in peace and happiness. This is my story through poetry.

 

My 4 Star Review:

This book was a poignant and very short read. The author uses the metaphors of season, color, and heartfelt words to convey her stories in minimal words, still evoking powerful emotion. The images the author adds to the stories evoke the peace she holds within.

These poems give us snippets into the author’s life using themes from tormented relationships to her overcoming through self-discovery. We can feel her elation through her words as the poems progress from dark to light.

  1. Hi D.G.,

    Just want to let you know that your blog is currently very slow in coming up when trying to get to it. It took over a minute the second time, and the first took a full two minutes.

    But your work is splendid as always!

    Brightest blessings to you in all things.

  3. Lovely review, Debby. Yes, your new blog/website looks gorgeous but it’s a bit slow. I know there are plugins that in theory can help with that but it depends on the theme… (and things like the size of images I think has something to do with it as well). I’m sure you’ll work it out. All the best.

  4. Debby, I have Lynn’s book on my desk to read soon! Your lovely review will gives us a real feel for the collection and having followed Lynn for some time I am in awe of her journey in life and so glad that after the darkness she has found light. I hope telling her story here will be part of her healing.
