I've been a bit absent and sporadic about my blogging lately, but for good reason. I haven't been feeling so well, but I pray that I'm on the mend. (Sidenote: I didn't have Covid-19). I'm certainly better than I was a few weeks ago, so for that I'm truly grateful. I will get there.

I thought that I'd drop in with a short post just to get back into the swing of things. It's kind of a good time to restart since tomorrow will be July 1st, the second half of 2021. It will be an intriguing opportunity to go forth with this blog again ๐Ÿ˜Š I hope you'll join me!

Happy Saturday! 

Happy weekend!

We took our Saturday morning walk and this was our view. We try to get out early and it's worth it because it's so peaceful and quiet in the early morning. 

Nature is so restorative ๐ŸŒผ

Have a good day wherever you are!

Book Spotlight – Lucy’s Worth by Letrise Carter

Disclosure: I was sent a copy of this book for review. All opinions are mine.


Recently I’ve had the opportunity to read the new book, Lucy’s Worth - Part 1 by Letrise T. Carter. 

Lucy's Worth book cover


Book description

Lucy’s Worth is part one of this young woman's desperate journey to find herself, while trying to make it on her own. Faced with her first true relationship, Lucy's long battle with low self-esteem will cause her to fall down a path with a dangerous man. Will Lucy be able to escape the trap that's been set for her? She's going to have to make the most important decision of her life -- because her life depends on it!

*****

This is an intriguing book which follows the story of Lucy Mason on her journey to self-worth. Lucy is a young woman who is facing many challenges as she navigates the waters of adulthood in trying to build a life for herself. As a reader, I was cheering her on as she made her first steps into independence. However, she soon finds herself in the middle of a toxic relationship and this sends her along a difficult path. Lucy’s boyfriend is terrible.

The important issue of domestic abuse is effectively woven into this story. The author does a great job at making the characters come alive and there is a real authenticity that comes through. We get to see Lucy's family dynamics. Her relationship with her parents and her sisters provides an interesting look at Lucy's foundations as a person. We get to witness Lucy’s emotions and her thought process up close, and this offers a window into the mindset of someone going through a dysfunctional relationship like this. Lucy’s Worth is a cautionary tale, and it is a story that needs to be told. 

I look forward to reading the rest of this series.
