THIS BOOK WILL MAKE YOU FEEL SO GRATEFUL!!! Jan 15, 2007
Have you ever read a book, that was so good, that within the first few pages, you started to think of people you wanted to buy it for, but you waited to see if it was really as good as you thought? And then, by the time you were 2/3's through, you were slowing down your pace, not because it wasn't good, but because it was SO GOOD, that you didn't want it to end? Rebecca Bloom is such a book. I have read many, many books, and I can sincerely say, that this is one of my favorite books of all time. While the protagonist is 15, and I am 51, it was just as relevant to me as it would be to a teenager. This is a deep wisdom book, a healing story. At first I thought of all the young women I know, who NEEDED to read this book, but by the time I was 1/2 way through it, I just wanted to get a copy for every friend I love. Imagine if you had a "spiritually enlightened" mother, who understood that our powers and abilities for creativity, healing and cooperation were much greater than our dominant culture teaches us, and she wrote a book, in a fun and engaging "fantasy" format, to help heal you, and keep this knowledge alive. Rebecca Bloom would be that book. This book is truly a medicine book, written playfully and skillfully, and a joy to read. The plot is thoroughly engaging. It's hard to put down, as the story literally sweeps you up. I have no idea how the author wrote this book. It is truly magical! In reading the other reviews, I can see we all have the same challenges, capturing just how good this book is, because there has never been a book quite like it. It defies categorization. It seems almost a crime that I had never heard of this book before, when it is such a gift. The good news is, if you are reading this review, you have a chance to order it. Get it today!

I highly recommend this book. It's got a bit of everything. Rebecca Bloom is a magical, rich, enchanted story that pulls you in and doesn't let go. The world of Thanely is truly an amazing, multi-dimensional place with interesting characters that parallels our own world and issues. There are many underlying themes to dwell into. But mostly it's an enjoyable, wonderful story you can't put down. This book is great for all ages. I am looking forward to the rest of the trilogy. Rebecca Bloom could be the next Harry Potter.
Creative and inspiring... Nov 25, 2003
A marvelously creative tale! This book is by an unknown author, however, it ranks up there with LaGuin and Tolkkien. This book (first part of a trilogy) was given to me by a friend of the author's and once I picked it up I could not put it down! It follows the adventures of Rebecca Bloom, who travels through a puddle and into another realm. There, she meets a cast of unusual characters, becomes acquainted with her own skills and abilities, and faces enormous challenges. It also contains a relevant social commentary about how young people are viewed in our society. Five stars! Buy this book today if you have children! They will love it and so will you!
