He loved his friends and family. This showed in his generosity toward them.
I certainly want to read the next book. I hope his books sell VERY well.
Brother in Masonry & Traditional Country Music!
He certainly didn't have a good childhood. He was often neglected and must have felt unwanted. His ability to overcome such harsh conditions is a testament to his character. JesseLee had dreams and nothing was going to deter him from that. How many of us have let dreams slip away because the struggle was to hard to overcome?
This story really touched me because growing up in a family that never encouraged me or showed me love, I was overcome with emotion as I read about the people who helped JesseLee with his dream. He worked hard, and never seemed to give up. JesseLee was blessed with people who encouraged him and helped him. It is an emotional read at times, but one worth finishing to the last page.
JesseLee loved music. It was his dream to one day sing to a crowd , to be on stage and live his dream out. Does his dream come true? Can JesseLee, from Brazil become famous? This book will draw you in and keep you glued as the pages flow with a story that captures the American Dream. JesseLee is an inspiration to anyone who has struggled or felt like they can't persevere. As you read the book, be encouraged that you can fulfill your destiny and you are strong enough to overcome obstacles in your path. Thank you for writing a book that gives us courage to not give up.
I received a copy of this book from The BookClub Network for an honest review.
“JesseLee’s first day in the United States was very trying to say the least, after being robbed of his belongings just hours after arriving in Miami, Florida. Fate would soon lead him to Peoria, Illinois, where he began his new life in earnest. He was taken in by a wonderful church family from Morton, Illinois, who helped him learn English and put him on the path to make something meaningful from his dream of living a new life. While embracing this new American culture, JesseLee began to work numerous jobs to make ends meet, from delivering newspapers and working odd farm jobs to doing maintenance and living at the Wildlife Prairie Park.” (www.jesseleejones.com). And this is just the beginning of the story.
JesseLee was born in Brazil and survived a childhood filled with neglect, wandering and oppressive forces. It is amazing that he had the wherewithal to continue to persevere and follow his heart’s desire. JesseLee always loved music and this is what often kept him going during difficult times.
JesseLee has a lot of perseverance. Without it he would not be doing what he is doing today. He is a successful musician and business man. But this success did not come without a tremendous amount of work. Not only physical and mental work, but spiritual work. JesseLee is an incredible man and in his book BrazilBilly: The JesseLee Jones Story he documents his life for us to read. What a marvelous book of overcoming, following your dream and of allowing God to work in your life.
I would highly recommend this book to teen to adult audiences. You will not be disappointed.
