Robbie’s beautiful review of my 2nd poetry collection released in 2015. All proceeds go to The Chris Klug Foundation in support of organ donation. ❤️
What Amazon says
Finding a Balance is Laurens second book of poetry, following New Day, New Dreams published in 2013. This compilation speaks often of her emotions and spirit after finding out about a life threatening disease two years ago in one of her family members. There is no devastating ending in the near future but many unanswered questions that will plague her family indefinitely.
In contrast to this sadness, Lauren has always possessed a romantic soul and is blessed to have celebrated twenty six happy years of marriage to her husband and best friend. So from darkness to finding the light again through faith and adding a touch of romance, she finds strength to move forward. This book takes the reader on a roller coaster ride of different emotions evoked from life and love but regardless of what is thrown in her path, hope will always prevail.

Beautiful review, my dear Lauren and so well deserved! xoxoxoxoxo
Thanks so much, Marina! Your support is always appreciated, my dear friend! ❤️❤️❤️
What a wonderful review and I love the proceeds all go to a great cause. So lovely of Robbie and well deserved Lauren!❣️
Thanks for taking the time to read and write your beautiful words, Cindy. I appreciate your kindness. 🤗💞
Lauren such a wonderful and beautiful review of your book. Robbie is too good. Loved the picture it showed what balance is all about. So kind of you to give away your proceeds for a good cause. It is so welcome for people who really want help. Thanks a lot.
Thanks for reading and for your beautiful words, Kamal. I love Robbie’s review, and I took the photo in one of our local towns by the bay. I loved what it represented. And yes, I wanted the proceeds to go to a specific cause for organ donation. The book was a therapeutic project at the time. Thanks again! ❤️
You are always welcome dear Lauren and it is so nice to be giving for a good cause. Kindness goes a long way Lauren. Have a lovely weekend.
Such a kind, thoughtful, and creative project, Lauren. Well done!
Thanks for your kind words, Anneli. At the time, the project was therapeutic and soothing through the hurt and anxiety.
Congratulations again on Lauren’s heartfelt review!
*Sheesh, of course I meant Robbie’s heartfelt review. (facepalm)
I knew what you meant, Liz. 🤗 Thanks again!
Fabulous review! I always love a reader’s experience of a book and the personal connections we draw between ourselves and good writing. ❤
Thanks so much, Layla! I love Robbie’s review, and I feel the same about the reader’s experience and personal connections. 💗💗
Lovely review for a lovely book. It’s in my “to read list” and I am sure I’ll feel the same connection as the other book I read.
Much deserved Lauren. ❤❤
Thanks so much, Marie. I truly appreciate your lovely words, and I hope you enjoy it as much as you enjoyed More than Coffee. Robbie writes wonderful reviews that can’t help but make the authors feel extreme gratitude. Hugs ❤️
Lauren, congratulations on Robbie’s thoughtful, tender and heartfelt review! I am so happy for you and it is lovely that she included her favourite snippets from your book! ‘Finding a Balance’ is on my list of books I look forward to reading! I have read so much more poetry since I started blogging and love exploring this genre outside a school setting. xx❤️
Thanks for your beautiful words, Annika! They are greatly appreciated, and when you have the time to read it, I hope my book has the same positive effect for you as it did for Robbie, although I don’t wish the pain my family experienced back then on any family. I’m also thinking that you might enjoy reading my latest book (memoir) More than Coffee released in 2021. Since you’re a fabulous story teller, you may enjoy the stories, along with the sprinkles of poetry. 🥰 Thanks again! ❤️
Doesn’t this review make your heart sing? Good job, Robbie, and yay, Lauren, not only for your lovely poems, but also for highlighting organ donation. ❤
Robbie writes reviews that make author’s hearts sing and mine has been doing just that! Thanks for your lovely words, Pam, and for your support! That was a difficult time and the proceeds go to a wonderful cause. 💞🤗

Thank you for reading Robbie’s review, and I hope you enjoy my book. 💗
