When Jennifer received word that her estranged
aunt wished to see her as soon as possible, she had no clue that this marked
the beginning of a life-altering change. Given her current circumstances, though,
even upheaval sounded appealing. Soon Jennifer found herself in a new town with
a budding romance. Something was “off” about the home she inherited, however. A
determined Jennifer slowly unravels the secret of the house and the
implications it will have moving forward.

Dr. Koh makes good on his promise to teach the beginner everything he or she needs to know to get started as a self-publisher on Amazon. This book is a fountain of knowledge if the reader sticks with it long enough to get to the meat of the matter which is found in the second half of the book. What I downloaded this book for and what most people will have downloaded it for is found in chapters five through ten. The first half of the book is interesting reading, but it’s not essential to learn how to publish with KDP, so I recommend reading the second half of the book first and then going back and reading the first half when time permits, Jerry Walsh, Amazon, 4 out of 5 stars

Liberation Through Bondage written for the lovers; for the passionate; for those who are willing to dive deep into their psyche and explore their most complex inner thoughts and emotions. This book is for the lonely, the troubled, the brave, the dreamers and the sensitive souls who are forever in search of liberation.
This is a thought-provoking and enlightening exploration of
spirituality and perception. The text functions as a guide to self-improvement,
with a mixture of autobiographical elements and snippets of universal wisdom.
The speaker provides accessible solutions to life’s difficulties, and an
outlook of optimism applicable to any circumstance. The illustrations and graphics
are thoughtfully chosen, and the interactive textual elements give this work an
originality that sets it apart. The speaker’s own experiences and conclusions
are at the heart of this fiction, and the first person narrative voice creates
a sense of proximity between author and reader. The text describes itself as ‘a
journey to the heart’, and this truthful discovery of the self is reflected in
the speaker’s revelation of his whole self through the text. The narrative
often presents a dichotomy between positive and negative outlooks or voices.
For example, the speaker includes sections in which his
self-doubt speaks, ‘you’ve got no proper education, you can’t spell properly,
you’re dyslexic and your grammar is crap. You’re not really a writer’. This
negative voice directly opposes the sense of self-belief the speaker builds
within the narrative. He uses examples such as this to remind readers that the
journey to happiness is complex and that flaws or setbacks are natural. The
negative separation or fragmentation of the self is prevalent in the lines, ‘I
do not love the grumpy me, the sad me, the hostile me, the parts of me that act
as if I do not care’. The act of writing represents a unification of the self
and an attempt to reframe the speaker’s life into coherence. The frequent use
of direct address and rhetorical questions promotes an active reading
experience, in which the author opens up a dialogue with the reader. The text
includes prompts and activities for the reader to engage with and learn from. Encouraging
readers to take part in the text is emblematic of their journey to
self-fulfilment and love, in which they must take responsibility for actively
creating their own happiness.
The speaker depicts his process of enlightenment as a
framework for others to emulate, and the format of the text demonstrates the
transfer of agency to those who take part in the speaker’s challenges at the
end of each chapter. This work ultimately teaches us that ‘we are the cause of
what is’ and thus sheds light on the crucial idea that every individual has the
power to create themselves and their world positively.
When you have been abused, you do not know what love really means. All you know is abuse and terror.
When people do eventually show love, it is difficult to understand why.
Love does not make sense to an abused child. Did you know that?
Trust is another challenge; it is so hard to trust anybody. Having been abused myself, I found it very difficult to trust anybody, even my parents.
Not being believed was another concern – I was afraid that I would never be believed. This fear grew even more when I had to give evidence in court. Even the lawyers did not believe me until I exposed all the injuries on my head, having to remove my wig. There were over eight of them. It was shocking.
But there is hope for an abused victim. You can live again…

How insane would you be?
A look into the mind of a dead boy named Adam: a young teenager born a few months after an incident that created a worldwide plague of the walking dead. Adam’s soul has been trapped inside of his frozen body for countless years, and while he is physically dead, his mind is very much alive.
He can only think and relive on his past life experiences. In his mind, he recalls the winter that led to the breaking up of his family. He and his mom, Ashley, separate from the power of his violent and isolationist father George, to go live in a newly established military compound during the warmer months.
However, the years of no human contact takes its toll on Adam as he struggles to learn and fit into the social norms of a civilization desperately grasping onto a dead world. With no end in sight, Adam has slipped into a deep level of insanity while being frozen as a member of the walking dead. He longs for the day he will finally be set free from the ice and into the warm embrace of the afterlife.
Memoirs of a Doctor is the story of Dr. Andrew C.S. Koh’s faith journey through life from his humble childhood until his retirement in 2020. He comes from a very poor background, from a very small and insignificant town in Malaysia.

I loved reading this book as it took me back to the stories that my grandmother told me of the days when she was growing up.

Dr. Koh’s story is a great reminder of where we have come from and to not forget our origins, Rowan Creech, Goodreads., 4 stars
