Reviews for Pathways to Illumination

Aha, wow, oh my, well hello there!

Be Healthy

Be Healthy.

I am happy with the feedback for Pathways to Illumination, my first poetry book that launched last week. I like to keep you all up to date on my journey and so I share the happy news here.

I send thanks to the many people who leave me positive messages and recognize the importance of healing. Getting healthy, whether it is physical or mental, is often a struggle and we can help one another to get through it. For me, writing helps me heal and it is a way for me to offer comfort to others. May the blankets cloak you in friendship as you read the book.

Two Reviews

Two reviews are in so far for Pathways to Illumination. Here are excerpts from each review, with links to both of them so you can read the full posts:

First reader review, written on Redmund Productions:

“Overall, I found this to be a very pleasant read on a soft spring afternoon. I was rooting for the protagonist from the very start. By the end, I found myself smiling bigger and deeper smiles. While it has to be somewhat introspective, it still felt like moments, experiences, emotions that were very familiar to me, and included me, though I’m sure our lives have taken very different paths.”

The second review is published on Among the Pots and Pans, a great blog by Judith C. Evans:

“I highly recommend Pathways to Illumination to any woman — or man — searching for an inspiring, encouraging read.  As Ms. Birmingham reminds us in “What If,” we can choose to “fill a blank page with positive words.” These poems convey a contagious determination to embrace the future in spite of the past. Whether it’s appreciating nature’s beauty or reflecting on lessons learned, Pathways to Illumination is a welcome companion on the healing journey.”

          I understand, Cat, and I was not looking for words from people so do not worry about what you did or did not write… I reached out to help anyone who read it and felt like I did those three years ago. I hope the words helped people feel stronger xx Thank-you.
