Carolyn Holland grew up during the 70’s in the coastal wetlands of North Carolina in a small, rural fishing village.

Though life took her to other places, she lived in the Appalachians for a time and later in Alabama, she found herself drawn back to her roots in Coastal North Carolina. With her three children grown now, she resides there still with her husband James Holland, a retired US Marine.

The Genesis Project by Carolyn Holland and Kef Hollenbach
First, I’ve would like to add a personal view of the author, Carolyn Holland. I meet Carolyn on Goodreads where I was searching for authors from North Carolina, which is my home state. In corresponding with Carolyn, I’ve found her to be a delightful person with a caring heart for others. She has been very supportive to me as a new author. I appreciate her contribution to the world of writing and also applaud her for reaching out offering assistance to those that need her expertise.
“Seeds of Transition-Book One was an interesting read. It is not the typical reading I engage and therefore I wasn’t sure if this would be something I would actually be interested in reading, except for providing honest feedback on the author’s writing, from my viewpoint. The story encompassing the idea of how our Earth is changing and the supply of food is becoming scarcer; the weather changes add to the story line as lives are affected by the changing factors. I thought about how our community would deal with the variables presented in this book; if people would step up and become heroes in finding ways to solve the shortage of food and find relieve, extend a helping hand to others. The story is very much believable and makes one think deep into the meaning of the intent from the author’s viewpoint(s). Sometimes in trying times the unexpected people rise to take control and this made me “think” about my own attempts to rise up and assist, if my community was in a similar situation; how I would react, help or fold? I think the plot of the story enables the reader to continue reading to find out what happens next, very interesting and thought provoking indeed! As an educator and the push in our public educational systems; we’re taught to promote “global awareness” and this book brings to life the topic of global society in need and how people find answers to solve real life problems; problems that can enable others to work together for the benefit of everyone. There are characters that take the time to reach out when others walk ahead, ignore…and that brings me to this point ~ The book reflects the actions of the author as an individual. She reaches out to help others just like Jarood reached out to the elderly woman…Carolyn reaches out to help others too and this book is one I would recommend to others. I will surely purchase a copy for my shelf!(I

The temperature all over the world is rising and causing all kinds of storms. It is having a big effect on the food. There are like 10 billion people in the world and not enough food to go around or at the least there is a shortage. The change in climate is effecting the growth of food. Fruits and meat are getting very hard to come by. You almost have to be rich just to be able to buy any kind of meat. The average working class family could not afford it. And without meat the children are getting sick. The US has started a recruitment to bring people from all over the world to America to help with their new project of growing food for everyone.
Ghazi and his brothers stand in line for a few days waiting to get in and signed up and hopefully are picked to go to America. When they get the news that they have been chosen to go to America they are ecstatic. Once they arrive in America they would then have jobs waiting for them. Ghazi had lost his job and couldn't find another one and this is why he wanted to take his family to America. Ghazi with his wife, Alala and his son Jarood along with his brothers and their families were all chosen to go to America and work. Years later Jarod was recruited by the president to help with a secret project called The Genesis Project. The Genesis Project is a new way they had come up with to grow food as they couldn't grow it in the soil anymore because the change in climate made it impossible.
Ramos had served two terms as governor of Florida and not only did the residents of Florida like how Ramos ran his office but the majority of America did as well. So when he was approached again about running for president he decided to run and he gained 272 electoral votes and won the election and became the 52th president of the United States. He didn't make any promises to do great things; no he made promises to clean up the water and lands, to clean up the air, to stop the prize of food going up and to create new jobs for the people. He did what he thought was the right thing to do and what he thought the people needed. The president, Ramos called Jarod and asked him to work for them on The Genesis Project. Jarod loved everything that they were doing to grow food for the people and wanted to be a part of it. But he just mainly loved doing the work itself.
At the beginning of each chapter there were these little sayings and/or proverbs. They each and every one fit with each chapter. I loved all the sayings themselves. Seeds Of Transition is one those type of stories that could actually come true and may very well be on its way. I think the authors did a great job creating the world in Seeds Of Transition and making it sound so real. You feel for each and every one character as if you are right there beside them. It's like you can feel the rain and the wind as they make their way to a safe place when the storms are happening. You actually feel the fear that they are all feeling because you can just see the roofs being pulled off of the buildings. If you have not read Seeds Of Transition then you need to pick up your copy today.
