Book Review Reviewed by Tanya Owen for Readers' Favorite

"Opening Pandora’s Box" was even better than the prequel. It was much more dramatic, and it kept me on my toes. It definitely made an impact. McCombs' characters were so well-developed in her first book that I felt I knew them. Therefore, reading about Jesse and Patrick’s murders really hit me hard. I found myself concerned about the well-being of Abby and Annette. Both girls had experienced so much heartbreak and trauma in their young lives that you just wanted to reach out and hug them. It was a nice touch seeing how McCombs showed how Abby and Annette transitioned from young, troubled girls into better-adjusted young women. This is a definite must-read book for anyone who loves dramatic stories with a happy ending.

"Opening Pandora’s Box" is a book written by Lisa A. McCombs. It is a sequel to "Raspberry Beret" that picks up where Abby hears sirens outside of her house. Something inside her told her she didn’t want to know what had happened. One night, Abby’s life was forever changed. Her best friend, Jesse, was killed by her own escaped convict father. Not only that, but Patrick was killed as well. Abby was no longer the sociable, lovable person she had once been. She was deeply depressed and withdrawn from her family and friends due to this incident. Over time, the “real” Abby starts to slowly emerge as she develops a better sense of who she is and titles her journal entries “Dear Jesse.” Toward the end of the story, she is doing much better and has grown up, ready to face the world as an adult.

Riding the MS broom

Do you ever feel like the ultimate witchy woman? That is actually a rhetorical question because I know you do. We all do whether we mean it or not. And guess what? We have a right to feel that way. Our brand of broom is a touch one to ride. That is why I truly believe that our supreme master, who ever/whatever that may be, doesn't throw us more than we can catch.

MSers (I read recently that this is an inappropriate way in which to refer to individuals with multiple sclerosis. The source of this judgement obliviously does not live with the disease. MS Warriors are far less offended by such a label than that.) are strong individuals who thrive on finding a purpose, a solution, a balance.

We are dependent on our co-pilot Common Sense. Care Givers are a beautiful addition to our lives, but many MSers (I did it again!) are not fortunate to have someone to clean our broom and dust off the daily spider webs that clutter the  cognitive mess of our brains. I learned that long before MS becam…

Yoga Burn gives new incentive to my morning routine.

I am not one much for online shopping indulgences, but a couple of weeks ago I allowed myself the rare treat of purchasing the Yoga Burn program advertised on Face Book. This morning I completed week one of the monthly scheduled routine and I even took time to meditate under the guidance of Yoga instructor Zoe Bray Cotton.

Laugh if you must, but I really, really, enjoyed the meditation exercise. I realize this is a solitary activity and I will never practice this in front of husband and/or son. 

I felt wonderful afterword, though. So at peace and relaxed. I always knew I was a Zen Goddess at heart.

What I really love about this program is that it "is a comprehensive online yoga course directed toward women only."  The older I get, the more I appreciate anything to do with "for women only". Weird, huh?

Zoe' voice is so very soft and inviting. As she leads me through my morning poses, I really feel as though she is my new morning bestie. Of course, I have only comple…

This Writer's Euphoric Journey

It is November and that means National Novel Writing Month. I participate every year. As always, I am behind on my writing goal for the month: WRITE 50,000 WORDS  IN 30 DAYS. 

With only two days to go, I still need 10,000 to finish. 

So...I will see you here again on Wednesday or at the end of my journey of 50,000 words. Until then, breathe.
