About the collection:

From Award-winning author of Breaking the Silence, Poetry and Ponderings: A Journey of Abuse and Healing Through Poetry by Diamante Lavendar.

A Journey of Abuse and Healing Through Poetry.

A raw collection of religious poetry and prose based on one Christian woman’s experiences of being abused, and how she healed herself with God’s love in order to move past the assaults.

In this rare collection of nonfiction Christian poetry and prose based on real life experiences, Diamante Lavendar, a victim of abuse, shows the reader the raw emotions of pain, hate, and denial that occur before a victim of abuse can find a way to heal from the pains of assault. Knowing herself the very difficult journey of being a victim, Diamante was abused as a child, and turned to alcohol and drugs to numb the pain. Many years later, she started to heal under God’s watchful eyes and was able to find love in her life again. She shares these truly inspiring, religious poems in the hopes that it may help other victims heal their hurts, as she did while writing the poetry collection.

Release Day Blitz. Behind the Wall. Jane Harvey-Berrick. 

Prison.
The place where dreams fade and hope dies.
That’s what it’s meant for the five years that Garrett has been behind bars. But now hope is on the horizon and he’s daring to dream again: small dreams, small hopes.
Getting his GED would be a start. If only his prison-appointed teacher Miss Ella Newsome wasn’t so damn sexy.
As Garrett and Ella start to play a dangerous game, the price could be higher than either of them have guessed.

This story first appeared in the anthology HOT FOR TEACHER in 2016. It has since been extended with new scenes, more heartache and even more heat.

Book Review. Chuck the Rooster loses his Voice. Sigal Haber. 

When Chuck the Rooster lost his voice, life on the farm began to go wrong. 
In an attempt to deal with the situation, the animals try to find a replacement from amongst themselves, to fill the sick rooster’s place. So they organize a singing contest. 

Will someone be found to take Chuck’s place? How will the rooster react to the idea? And will there be another “Farm Idol”? 

“When Chuck the Rooster Lost His Voice” is Dr. Sigal Haber’s children book. 
Its Theme was inspired by the world of organizational management in which she specialized for many years. 
The story describes, with humor and wit, what happens when an employee in the imaginary animal farm has trouble functioning or is absent from work. The farm animals, who are amusingly anthropomorphized, are exposed to issues such as duty, cooperation, and dealing with the unexpected.
