Healing... by Orsayor Simmons

June 7, 2014

"The more you are able to forgive then the more you are able to love."
¯ Stephen Richards

Our past can cause us to become prisoners of our own private hell. The hardest thing about writing a review is when you read a book that is so close to "home." I'm a firm believer in... when a student is ready - a teacher/master will appear, but in this case - it was a book.

Parallel Pasts introduces us to Cory & Fatima - who are so consumed by their pasts it causes them to be afraid to live in the now. They are each fighting their own private demons, and that's one of the things that connect them. Before they can truly get to know each other, they have to come to terms with their pasts. Will they be able to move forward? Or will they let their pasts consume their lives?

Proverbs 4:23
23 Above all else, guard your heart,
for everything you do flows from it.

Julia Blues has delivered a beautifully written novel that's heartbreaking, inspiring, and most of all honest. This debut novel has a solid believable plot, along with dialogue that is rich in detail. The Author did an extraordinary job of creating characters that will stay with the reader long after you have read this novel. I really enjoyed Cory & Fatima's journey of growing, learning, and loving. One thing Author Julia Blues seems to do so effortlessly is introducing readers to numerous characters and having them fit together perfectly in the story.

I finished this book feeling a sense of renewal. Life is definitely a journey filled twists & turns, but we have to continue to hold on through it all.

God has not promised me sunshine
That's not the way it's going to be
But a little rain
Mixed with God's sunshine
A little pain
Makes me appreciate the good times - Walter Hawkins

Excellent debut - Julia Blues...
