The Island Girl Speaks . . . At Last! is a compilation of poetry and other compositions, most of which the author retrieved from her archives and dusted off to present to the world.
Her voice, no longer muted, now declares with boldness things that have been on her heart for decades. No longer paralyzed, she moves to the beat of her own drums. You will laugh. You will cry. You will sigh. You will also learn something new and be encouraged to do. This book will celebrate each persons spirit as it finds the hearts for which it searches.
The Island Girl takes you from Thanksgiving to Inspiration and much in between. The author celebrates others in the section devoted to tributes, and she exposes her struggle to overcome feelings of inadequacy and fear in Exposition. She shows glimpses of her somewhat sheltered childhood and describes her unplanned and underachieving journey to adulthood.
This is a journey that strips away the camouflage with which this young woman had covered herself through the years. Like Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, the island girl felt it necessary to cover herself because she was ashamed of her nakedness. Nevertheless, The Island Girl Speaks . . . At Last! is a picture of hope. Approach it with an open mind and you will find just what your soul needs.
