Book Review: Box of Butterflies

Box of Butterflies

Discovering the Unexpected Blessings All Around Us

by Roma Downey

Howard Books


Pub Date 06 Mar 2018

I am reviewing a copy of Box of Butterflies through Box of Butterflies through Howard Books and Netgalley:

Roma Downey has saw butterflies as a reminder of God’s presence from the time she was a little girl in Ireland. They appeared at the moments when she most needed these reminders.

Like the story lines in the widely popular Touched by An Angel that skyrocketed her career, the stories in this book offer a central theme of God and Faith along with inspirational and motivational stories.

Roma Downey was born in Derry City Ireland, a beautiful border town in North West Ireland, but from the time she was about eight she grew up in the midst of a war.

At eighteen Roma Downey left Derry and went to Brighton College of the Arts in London. While away at school she lost her Father.

This book is a gentle reminder that through the good times and bad we are never alone, that we have someone watching out for us, helping us when we call out to him.

Roma Downey’s Faith shines beautifully in this book.

I give Box of Butterflies five out of five stars, and yet it deserves so much more!

Happy Reading!

Health, Mind & Body , Nonfiction (Adult)

Pub Date 08 Jan 2018

I am reviewing a copy of Daily Writing Resilience through Llewelyn Publications and Netgalley:

In this book we are reminded that even the most experienced writers have experienced rejections, setback and even heartbreak we’ve poured our hearts into our writing only to be told it’s not good enough.

In this book we are given the inspiration we need that shows writers how to be resilient. We are reminded that once we stop trying to write for approval and instead search for our own voices instead.

This book reminds us that Authors must learn to accept that there is uncertainty in this business, it’s not guaranteed that everyone will like our book, that we will even sale our book, but if we give up before we begin then we truly do loose hope!

I give Daily Writing Resilience five out of five stars!

Happy Reading!
