Confessions of an Instinctively Mutinous Baby Boomer: And Her Parable of the Tomato Plant Audiobook – Unabridged
Top customer reviews
The stories/’confessions’ are of the Author’s life experiences, and through them she is revealed as a complex and talented person, worth getting to know. It doesn’t take long to admire her for her strength and resilience – qualities she has needed to develop as life throws up setbacks.
The book is beautifully written, very personal, and once I got used to the nature of the parables, I found myself thinking, could this really work? Could this work for me too? It is uplifting, even though some of the stories are not about uplifting subjects, like family and financial problems, serious illness and death. No matter what the nature of the story, there is always a message, and it is concisely represented and easily understood.
Each story holds a meaning, or reinforces the author's belief in miracles. We all would like to believe such things happen, and reading this book written by a woman who so firmly does believe, is encouraging and enlightening. Ms. Roberts stresses that happiness is a decision, not something that merely happens to us. I won't forget that part. These are words I would be wise to listen to.
The author's voice comes through, in a consistent, forthright manner, as fragments of her life are depicted and the message she took from them. Two of my favorites were The Parable of Smokey in the Storm and The Parable of the Hummingbird. They each have a special message, delivered through the dog and the bird, that I found delightful.
If you believe in miracles, or if you don't and you would like to, read this book.
Marsha was fortunate to have those combination of ‘’genes’’ that provide one with a sense of humour,
reasonable common sense, empathetic tolerance,willingness to learn from her acknowledged mistakes, unselfish desire to help others where possible and to be able to tabulate all of her lifes,fun and foilbles into a most entertaining, inspiring, amusing read. I most certainly highly recommend it, especially to ‘’the younger fry’’ starting out into their adulthood.
