A post-apocalyptic world, an unlikely band of Revolutionaries, this is the memoir of their struggles and triumphs. A woman describes a refugee colony's dramatic rise to power. The governmental shift was bound to happen, the only question in the matter is who will be the leader of this new nation. Written in first person, this memoir provides an inside look at those whose lives are destined to become swallowed up and defined by political intrigue.
Great men and women go through all the same trials and temptations ordinary people go through; the stakes are just much higher because everybody is watching them.

A Memoir of Love by Jessiqua Whittman Genre: Inspirational Fiction / Chic Literature Published 2012 Reviews From A Guy A Memoir of Love is an extremely well written work of epic proportions. There are many charming stories outlined throughout it and the redemptive aspect of the Christian message is very well displayed time and time again. I would definitely recommend this book to readers of Inspirational Fiction and Chick Literature. As a man I found it not quite my cup of tea, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that it is a very well written story that provides a lot of insights into the lives of characters that you can like and commiserate with. I do have a few issues with the book, the overall bent of the story not being quite my style not being one of them. This book is rather exorbitantly large (my kindle version was close to 4000 pages). While I respect the love of an author of continuing a story on out past the normal parameters, this book takes it to far I fear. There are five parts to the book with aprox. forty chapters each. Again if this (dear reader of this review) is your genre and point of literary interest congratulations, because you’ve found a book to read for quite some time to come. One other issue I had is that, while very well written, the story is sold as that of an apocalyptic setting of an outpost set in a survivor colony in the Middle East. The apocalyptic part really didn’t seem real given the focus of the story was elsewhere predominantly and the story in general seems to have more founding in the American West (both ecologically and socially) during the time frame of Little House on the Prairie then it does the Middle East. Very well written, although quite long, with some setting issues. My Rating, Four out of Five Stars • I received a free review copy of A Memoir of Love from the author. The author’s generosity, while appreciated did not influence this review.
A Memoir of Love, by Jessiqua Wittman is one of the most fascinating books of our time! Not only is it a great work of art but it is also a fascinating allegorical tale.I had originally purchased this book because I have been a life long friend of this new author. I Am so GLAD I did!!!! ¿I love the way that it is written as if I were reading a journal or diary. By the end of the book the reader feels as if Love has become a best friend who has shared her life's story over a few cups of hot chocolate Jess did a wonderful job of not "preaching" through the book! Rather the actions of her characters speak loudly of its wholesome themes. These themes of loyalty, strength of character, love, integrity and honesty are demonstrated through the book. While there are parts of the story that I don’t like to dwell on, Jess did a remarkable job of making her characters REAL! Each of her characters has tough decisions to make, a quandary of sorts. Sometimes the characters made horrible mistakes that wound up hurting themselves or their family members. This made the characters someone I could relate to in my humanity. Too oftentimes in a "Christian" culture we avoid all the nasty realness of life. This has set up an entire generation to believe that once we stumble or fall in our walk with God all is over and we are done for. Several times through the book Jess shows us that neither falling or failing is final. ¿Christian or not, this is a good wholesome book for older teens and adults! So get comfy in your favorite place, and visit the land of Marna, you will be glad you did!
I am currently in the process of reading this book for the THIRD time and I still find it amazing! EVERY time I go through it I find something new, something interesting, something deeper! I had a really hard time putting this book down the first couple of reads because of the depths and heights to which the book takes the reader. The characters are well rounded and the plot is simplistically complicated! Like a delicate spider's web. Don't think you know the way it will all end up because just when you think you know where the book is going.....Wham!
