I was first linked to the books on Amazon, based on other things I had read, in December 2011. At that time, I downloaded Summer's Path and Waiting for Autumn. They sat on my Kindle as I continued to read other ebooks.
September, of this year, I felt led to start reading the Scott Blum books. After checking the order they were written, and the comment by the author, Summer's Path was the first I read. Although Waiting for Autumn was written first, Summer's Path is the prequel.
As I read Summer's Path, I was reintroduced to concepts, such as walk-ins, I had first studied years ago. I wasn't sure then, and still I'm not sure, what I think of the concepts but the book shared many ideas about our journey through life that I found thought provoking. Some of them also seemed to parallel things I was thinking about related to my own life.
When I finished Summer's Path, I started Waiting for Autumn. This book shared a specific journey about being open to life and intuition. Many concepts from Native American ceremonies to the eternal connections between parents and children were explored. Again, these ideas were connected to things I had been thinking about and the book provided confirmation for me. The metaphysical and ceremonial examples in the book are concepts that are shared, to some degree, across different religions and belief systems.
When I finished Waiting for Autumn, I wasn't ready to stop reading Scott's work so I bought Winter Moon Rising and continued reading the journey. This book was a more detailed presentation of the bond between individuals and their children. Whether taken at face value, or as thoughts to consider, the ideas provide possible insight into relationships.
Waiting 9 months from the time I was introduced to the books until reading them seemed appropriate. For me, they felt like one book, with Summer's Path being Part 1, Waiting for Autumn, Part 2, and Winter Moon Rising, Part 3. Reading them when I did was perfect timing for me. The most significant "take away" for me was the concept of tuning in to my own intuition. Scott shared specific examples of how someone can know that he, or she, is following their own path. One that I remember was noticing connecting events, such as observing a clock at 11:11 several times in a row. After I've forgotten the details of the book itself, the reminders that I am "in the flow" will remain.
I recommend the books to anyone who is open to ideas related to intuition and things beyond what we see on the physical plane. I suggest reading one, or all, when it feels right for you.
The strong similarity of some of these events between my own life and those of friends, would lead me to believe that much of what Mr. Blum writes is true accounts with little fictionalization. This could well serve as a guidebook for people seeking to deepen their own spiritual connections.
Just a personal note, I found that during the later part of the book, where the author retreats more into the spiritual world, so does the writing a little. There's not quite as much attention to the audience and the pull starts to fade. The power and intensity that is felt in the first few chapters gives way to vagueness in the last, and the book finishes with not quite as much promise as it began. Still, it's an enjoying, captivating and soul-opening read. Highly recommended.

Read the first three chapters on the laptop, then raced around to find where I had left the book, and didn't put it down for two days. Some things had been happening in my life that Scott's book finally helped me articulate to myself and to others, to my great relief. For example: "conscious food". That phrase finally helped me explain to friends why I wouldn't go to certain restaurants anymore and was only interested in organic, vegatarian, vegan or raw restaurants where the owners were there most of the time handing me my food and asking how it was. Their excitement and love for what they do shows in their eyes as they watch you eat their food. THAT's conscious food!
I also found my heart teacher in a strange place and immediately connected with Scott's character and the opening conversations he had with his unlikely teacher. I felt the story went "out there" on a few occasions, but thought those were entertaining moments and wasn't offended or put off by them at all. I knew it wasn't my journey, but enjoyed going there with him anyway.
This book was a highly entertaining read in a new (old) field and I loved every minute of it. Most of my friends are not growing with me, and this book made me feel like there are entire communities of people who are consciously seeking to grow and learn and made me feel less alone on my path. I've just recommended it to a local bookstore, Mystic Journey in Venice, CA.
I sent the book to my heart teacher in Honolulu, who read it in one night and love it as well.
