"Montessori - Living the Good Life" Reviews
Smith, Graduate in Psychology and Creative Writing. . . "What
stands out to me most about this manuscript is its presentation of your mastery
of the researched material. Your voice, throughout the piece, is consistently
informative, yet maintains an almost conversational tone, which is absolutely
refreshing. . . It
is evident in your writing that Maria's Montessori Method has profoundly
influenced your worldview and your understanding of children and their place in
this world. By communicating your enthusiasm for this worldview, you have the
ability to engage the reader and increase their enthusiasm. . . One of my favorite elements in
your manuscript is the presence of weaving allegory. The story of Nuala, which
appears twice, is very beautifully written and also serves as a break in the
voice (a good one). What I mean by this is that it provides a more poetic, more
imagery-heavy illustration of content. . . You once confided in me that poetry is not your strong suit, but I beg to
differ. You are a strong writer; poetry is just a way to flex that muscle, and
you've already proven that you are fully capable. . .You
have a lovely manuscript; it is clearly inspired. Thank you for allowing me
to read your work."
Mary Clare. . ."I
love your book. I'm recommending it to everyone. I'm still reading it. I love
your style--your story flows. What a gift. Can't wait to finish. My sister and
her clan are waiting to read it, too!"
Sixteen-year-old granddaughter, TeraJane Ripley. . .From what I've read so far, it's interesting. Not action-packed, of course, but I'm enjoying it.
Jay Hoebermann, Beginning Experience team member. . . Yesterday I downloaded your book onto my Christmas gift (iPad) and find myself enjoying the read. . . Like breathing, each word opens a new now, a chance to view my warrior world with the Light of Christ. . . . This book gives us the opportunity to review our own beginnings and our demons that hold us fast. . . Thank you for writing what we all should know but lose in our shadows.
