Sunday Book Review – A Ride Down the Milky Way by Sherri-Lee Viitala

Today on my Sunday Book Review I’m reviewing a beautiful, short story, A Ride Down the Milky Way by Sherri-Lee Vitalla. In this book, the characters are the moon and the sun. Sherri-Lee also has a heartwarming Facebook page called – The Rise of my Fall, where she posts moving messages and many excerpts from her two books about observations from the moon and the sun as they observe ‘the girl’ and ‘him’ as they touch on some of the painful things we endure in life, and encourage ‘the girl’ and ‘him’ with positive affirmations as ‘the girl’ struggles and triumphs over some of life’s challenging moments.

In Sherri-Lee Viitala’s second book, get ready to follow along with Moon and Star as they watch over the girl on her journey through life and love, heartache and happiness.

My 5 Star Review:

This is a sweet and endearing short book about the moon and star observing and conversing with inspiring messages in short dialogues as they observe ‘the girl’ below on earth as the girl navigates through moments of hope, despair, memories and more about ‘him’.

These one page stories filled with emotion and beautiful illustrations will touch your heart and will also serve well as a bedside guide you can pick up and open a page for a daily inspiration through a beautiful message. Yes, the stories are about the girl being watched from above. But I guarantee, there’s something in here that will touch everyone.

Here’s one that resonates with me, as I grieve the loss of my beautiful husband:

“Moon?” Star called.

“Mmmmm hmmmm, said moon.

“I think she knows,” Star said.

“What’s that?” Said moon.

“That he’s looking for her. I think she knows,” Star said.

“How do you know?” Asked moon.

“She’s smiling,” said Star.

Moon and Star watched from the heavens above, shining just a little brighter.

“Yes,” Moon whispered. “She certainly is.”
