Editorial Reviews

Review

"Pour a cup of coffee, make yourself comfortable, and I'll introduce you to some of my favorite women." With these words of welcome, Sylvia Forrest invites readers into her life through an engaging and heartwarming collection of essays, A View From My Window.

Forrest's stories explore her own life as well as the lives of other women she has known, from youth to maturity and everything in between. Whether discussing the challenges of marriage and parenting or the trials of school years and beyond, the collection never falters, engaging readers effectively from start to finish.

Forrest nails it in every section of her book.

A View from My Window is a warm, wise, exceptionally well-written compilation of stories, one that is sure to strike a chord with every woman, no matter what stage of her life she happens to be navigating.

A View from My Window REAL STORIES for REAL WOMEN is a book about relationships and friendships and how significant they are in a girl's/woman's life. Forrest grabs you really from the "get-go" with the opening stories of womanhood which delve into a time of your life which is riddled for many with new experiences that can be incredibly scary and challenging. The book is divided into three sections: Womanhood, Motherhood and Grandmothers. The subjects covered in the book are diverse and 'real,' from college roommate struggles, jealousy at work and cheating neighbors to mothers' undying love for their children's welfare and a grandmother's words of wisdom. Forrest tells her stories with such warmth, sincerity and venerability that when you are reading them you feel an immediate sense of kinship. She draws the reader immediately in by relating to her storytelling - - whether it is a situation that is near to you or you simply understand. The reader feels that it is OK to NOT be perfect and, in fact, we can learn from our challenges, blunders and difficult times. This is a book which can be read in whole or parts and it is one that I go back and reference chapters frequently. I am not sure Forrest knew it when she wrote the book but it is incredibly therapeutic and inspiring on many levels and is a wonderful read for all ages. KUDOS to an author who shares her vulnerabilities and in so doing helps us all! Forrest has a special gift of writing that needs to be shared; an author to keep on your radar permanently! Thank YOU for the quality - 4 stars

You will undoubtedly find yourself somewhere among these pages. "A View from My Window" is a beautifully written reminder of what's important in this lifetime. And we could all use reminders like these once in awhile. Great read. Thought-provoking. And fun....all at the same time. Enjoy!

This book was given to me by a woman with whom I have only recently become friends, so I wasn't sure what to expect. I must say that the author of this book has an incredible gift to offer! One moment I was entranced by the smorgasbord of food for thought that Forrest's keen perspective has to offer (throughout the entire book)... and the next moment I was laughing uproariously - literally - at her metaphoric and "sharp as a tack" descriptions. "A View From My Window" offers reflection, introspection and wonderful memories of days gone by. I highly recommend it!
