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.
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.
