The author used narration beautifully. She set each captivating scene and painted a picture I could see in my mind's eye. I didn't find anything to "skip over." Her prose is captivating and lyrical, and her main character is someone you'll enjoy a LOT. A real treat!
Besides technique, there was the Story! It was filled with many surprises I didn't see coming. But best of all, the spiritual message of the book (which I'll leave for you to discover) is sweet and true. I'll be one of the first to read her next novel.
Reading Without Fear of Falling had an incredible effect on me. The male lead, Declan, has lived a life wrought with pain; in fact, he spent time in a mental institution before meeting Ellie. But something magical happens when he meets her: he finds healing. Now, this goes against much of what we think we know about psychology but it matches what I know from my own life about the human heart.
You see, I was one of those people, once broken, once almost mentally ill, who found healing as a result of finding my soulmate. Love really can mend the broken pieces inside of us. When I read Without Fear of Falling, I was reminded, in a very visceral way, both of the pain I'd buried and of the love that had helped me to finally bury that pain.
So for me, reading Boonstra's first novel was a profound experience. It affected me on a personal level because it reminded me of the ways love has healed me. And as a writer, as a fan of fine craftsmanship, complex characterization and a well-constructed plot, I can give Without Fear of Falling my highest recommendation.
E.L. Farris, Author of Ripple, A Tale of Hope and Redemption; I Run: Running from Hell with El, and Wave.
I am relating this story because this, in essence, is the underlying message of the book: that we are all guided; that we all have a still, small voice within that leads us to higher spiritual wisdom if we choose to listen.
In the story, a young woman named Ellie grapples with a unique psychic gift. Specifically, she is able to see the past lives of herself and those around her. Her gift both scares and intrigues her, and the arrival of a troubled stranger awakens her visions in a way that forces her to address them. The story weaves back and forth between Ellie's present day life and a past life, and follows her development as she and those around her awaken to their spiritual power and learn to embrace the healing power of love.
The story in itself is magical, and I felt like I was reading a fairy tale the entire time. The characters are unique and lovable, and the writing is effortless and beautiful. There were several points in this book where a phrase just struck me right in the heart with its beauty and powerful wisdom, and I had tears in my eyes on more than one occasion!
As lovely as this book is just for the story's sake, the best stories teach us something. And that is what makes this book even more striking. The spiritual messages that are woven throughout are done so in a natural and flowing manner, and this story provides the perfect setting for the principles that are being conveyed. I'm trying not to be too specific so that I don't give anything away, but also because each person will come away with something different after reading this book. I felt uplifted, comforted, and peaceful, and I immediately wanted to read it again.
Every once in awhile I come across a book that I feel compelled to buy several copies of to give out as gifts; this one will definitely be my go-to gift this year! Whether you are a spiritual seeker looking for inspiration or understanding or you just want to be entertained by a good story, this is the book for you!
I truly look forward to more from this author in the future!
