It is said that she who writes about herself and her time writes about all people for all time. Here, I. R. King offers herself as a metaphor through which some of life's foibles and paradoxes can be examined in the quest for improvement. Journal of A Superfluous Woman: A Collection of Essays is a journey of reflection and introspection. It is a quest for the unknown and the unknowable, an attempt to reconcile the irreconcilable, and a search for meaning, purpose, and wholeness. The recognition that duality is imbedded in the depths of reality forms the basis for creating peace, within and without, and for moving toward balance, equipoise, and love.

A delight to read! The author seductively captures the essence of self-development, self-discovery, self-awareness, self-serenity. While the book is comprised of a collection of essays, the essays flow together to give the book a sense of unity. Yet, each essay may be read in insolation to give each its own independent identity, but without sacrificing the book's flavor. I've read it once, i've read it twice, but three times would be a charm. Congratulations to the superflous author.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Inviting, entertaining, insightful, perceptive, honest! These words and more describe my response to Journal of a Superfluous Woman: A Collection of Essays. This is an invitation to live through the epiphanies in one life, tracing their impact over time. Mind, heart, and soul are laid bare and I looked on mesmerized by it all. But more than this, I was very quietly but insistently urged to search my life and look for that ¿common thread¿ as King so aptly describes it. This is a must read! The essay format makes it an easy read and left me hungering for more. I eagerly await more from I. Rhonda King.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
