Oh my, what a wonderful, magical little novella.

Mary is a little girl who lives with her mother and father in a small home. Her bedroom is a windowless cupboard and there is little food to eat, but she is a happy, kind, clever little girl with dreams of being an explorer.

One day, while taking tiny steps in her gardens, to make it seem bigger, she meets Lanmo, a beautiful, tiny, shiny golden snake with ruby red eyes. They become close friends and he keeps her safe. Lanmo has to leave Mary at times to visit other humans and travels the world, he is death.

There is a War and Lanmo’s work is being done for him by people and he cannot understand why humans cannot just be happy flying kites and playing with kittens. 

Lanmo helps save Mary and her friend Paul by showing them the way to a new city where they can be safe. Time passes as he travels doing his work but he comes back to visit,

The story is so beautifully written, sad and heartwarming. A modern classic and a must read. 

I would like to thank the Author/the Publishers/NetGalley for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Returning Souls – Book Review

Returning Souls by Ernestine B Columbo

This is initially set in the present day and Evie collapses at home. Her soul leaves her and she can see all that is happening.

She then ‘wakes’ as a young girl, Astara, the daughter of a holy man and different to her tribe. Astara is Evie’s first life.

This is a wonderfully written tale of reincarnation, on how past lives and events, happy and sad form the person you then become.

Evie is then in the white place, with her oversoul and many questions and answers. Meeting family and pets helping her with a decision….does she return to her life as Evie? Move on ? Or try again.?

It’s a moving take of life, love and loss. I loved it and will definitely be giving it a second read.
