I met the author recently and she gave me a copy of her new book, which I just finished. The story of Joy Postle Blackstone is beautifully told, and we find a woman who was very talented and had an adventuresome spirit. It was a truly inspirational story and the author depicted Joy in such a way that I feel I really got to know her as a person -- great character development. I would recommend this delightful book with no reservations. Jan M.

I FINALLY got around to taking a hold of your book in my two hands and laying on the couch with it. I was enchanted throughout, and I was thinking what a blessing you were to this woman at the very end of her life.

It’s so interesting, when you see someone so elderly and confined to a wheelchair, and then you take a peek into her life and realize how whole hearted and vibrant she was, truly casting joy in everyone’s direction. Because of your intervention in her life, many will now learn about this woman and her awesome talent. The fact that you took the time and sat with her, a piece by piece, put together a roadmap of her life must have meant the world to her. I can well imagine how much she looked forward to your visits. (The photographs throughout are such an added bonus!)

One of the things that caught my attention was how Joy fought to maintain her sense of self in the nursing home. She fought to remain sharp. I felt a sadness about that. We have two elderly (80s) relatives in a nursing home and both are confused as to why they cannot return to their home (though neither is ambulatory).

Prior to reading this book, I had never heard of Joy Postle Blackstone. Her art work is just incredible.

As a teenager, I always lamented that I could not draw or paint, yet I recognized way back then, that the gift to write was truly a gift from God. And when you have that gift, the obligation to share it is on your shoulders. You have immortalized Joy in this book and one day, you will be dancing on streets of gold with her! I can only imagine how thrilled she must have been (up in heaven) to see the book come to fruition. God Bless you for finishing it, Judy.

Judy Johnson gives us a beautiful look at a gutsy woman who overcomes adversity, experiences adventures, and leaves the world a better place because of her character and her art. Marvelous!

The life story of Central Florida artist Joy Postle Blackstone is beautifully written by Judy Johnson. Written in first person, this biography reads as a memoir. The reader is immersed in Joy's fascinating life and is treated to family photos and images of her unique art.
