I could not put this book down. The author's candor and bittersweet approach to an often-ignored subject allowed me to travel within the pages as a kindred spirit. Corinne Edwards has a gift in transcending generations and gender to bring together the message of love for us all. Miracles abound within the pages. I would highly recommend this beautiful book to anyone seeking spiritual renewal.
This book was teriffic!!! I opened the package when I received it and could not put the book down until I had finished. Being a fairly recent widow, I identified with so much the author had to say. It really helped me to look at my status in a whole new light. I wish I could thank her personally for writing this book.
Reflections from a Woman Alone held me captive for several hours as the pages turned automatically. The style format varies from letters, to essays, to poems all held together by the skill of the writer as you walk down her path. As her life unfolds, after her husband's death, the reader experiences, the wit, the humor, the depth of loss, the loneliness, the angst, eventually leading to integration. Her learning is shared with the simple statement: "nothing outside yourself can save you; nothing outside yourself can bring you peace." This book passes on the author's miracle, a change in perception, ever so quietly and smoothly from her psyche to yours.
Reflections is a rare look into the inner life of a woman alone -- not only how she copes, but also how she recreates herself and reinvents her life. This is a book of comfort and hope. If Corinne Edwards can do it -- then, as her book shows, any woman can do it! And it's a great read!!
This book is wonderful! I laughed, I cried, I felt the way the author must have felt at the time of the letters. The format of reading her (Corinne's) mail made this such a personal book. I am still with my husband, but have felt EVERY one of the authors' issues. The feeling of being alone at a party, The questions, the "looks". WOW...Thank you from the bottom of my heart ((*_*))
Good books don't make you work to read them. They just let themselves be picked up, and that's it, because they fill you with wisdom, grace and a better sense of what's important and why it should be cherished. This is a GOOD book!
