I bought a copy of 'The Destiny of Miro' in 2001. I have since bought several more copies as gifts for friends and family members. I found it very inspirational and easy to read. It definately is a book that can be read over and over as I, myself, have done. I have also had the joy of reading various other works by Julie, such as short stories and her postcard book on Clearfield, Pennsylvania. She is definately a very good writer.

'Destiny of Miro' is truly a masterpiece of fiction written by first time author Julie Rae Rickard. Not one of us goes through life without wondering who we are and for what purpose do we exist. Is there an afterlife? Have we lived in another place and time, our soul returned to Earth in its present corporeal body to atone for past transgressions or even sins of family members? Are there spirit guides in nature suggesting the path to self discovery and the truth of existence? Is our mind a battleground of conflict between reason and emotion? Do we recognize an 'inner voice' that points the way if we would only take the time to listen? This book asks the very same questions without telling us what we should or should not do to find happiness, peace, contentment and fulfillment. It is a non denominational, mystical journey into the puzzle of life as seen through the eyes of an eight year old boy who survives the horrific murder of his entire family at the hands of a crazed father believing this vile act ordained by an angry God to atone for sins committed by his maternal grandparents. It was Miro's destiny to die. How dare he refuse to take the poison as commanded by his father. But refuse he did, exchanging death for a lifetime of torment and recrimination. We accompany him on his journey to manhood experiencing the devastating pain caused by fear and guilt. We are confronted by the possibility of reincarnation, why people seem to know us even though we have only met them in our dreams. We learn that destiny is not set in stone, that the freedom to choose is still ours to make. God is always with us paving the road to salvation, but we must seek His counsel. We can experience God in our personal lives if we are aware of and receptive to his messengers. This book is a real page turner because in a sense we are all like Miro, searching for truth and the ultimate good. You cannot finish 'Destiny of Miro' without questioning your own life and profiting from the story's enlightened, indeed provocative examination of spirituality and our relationship to God in a confusing, materialistic world.

It was a book that was hard to put down. You can feel what Miro is going through. As you are reading, you can see where he is and what he's doing.It will make you think about your own destiny. I can't wait to read Julie's next book.

The Destiny of Miro is a book that is enjoyable to read. The main character Miro, is captivating. I wanted to continue reading this book right up until the end to discover his fate. Julie Rae Rickard's writing technique is excellent and easy to read. I look forward to her next work.

Miro's search for his destiny begins at a very young age under devastating circumstances. A unique perspective combining faith and nature add unexpected turns along his journey. Julie Rickard has a bright future ahead.

I enjoyed this book very much. It was a book you can read over and over and get different things from each time. The book starts out with a young boy who is looking for his Destiny. His spritual journey is a great story and he faces the same struggles we all face in finding our true self. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is on a spritual path.
