I am a major league fan of everything Mary writes, because her work never fails to quench my thirst for spiritual understanding. Fireside delivers again in that department, and as bonus, her and Sally unravel important meanings to words we assume we understand -- like Acceptance, Love, Wisdom. These are words we overuse, and often over-assume understanding of, and they carry more importance to life than words like Wrench, Barbie, Salsa, or even Sadness. They are worthy of scrutiny because they are represent jewels, and Mary and Sally polish them deftly...and without the unnecessary sentimentality that other books heap onto the subjects. There is no other theme I can muster into a review category; the rest of the conversations address and expound upon particular facets begun in previous works by Mary Summer Rain.
If you are new to this author's work, you would probably enjoy Fireside (and also Eclipse, especially) much more after reading some of her previous works. I'd recommend Spirit Song, Phoenix Rising, Ruby, and Bittersweet before Fireside or Eclipse. I think all stand on their own well, and I recommend ALL of her work as highly as I can possibly recommend any work, but keep in mind that she tackles very major topics that readers will often find themselves surprised even existed. She does it simply, analytically, and with a seeker's (and finder's) heart, but some of the topics are so revelatory to many people that it can take a while to truly digest.Read more ›
Every day life as we all experience comes to life as they discuss things common to us all, bills to pay, challenges, pets and things not so common, such as "quantum conundrums" unraveled by physicists... and the exciting revelations of change with coming of the Shekinah... the feminine energies permeating our world today to bring about those long-awaited changes.
I am simply thrilled that Mary has chosen to bring "Fireside" into the world of electronic books so that many new readers can enjoy and learn from this classic work. It is a treasure!
