Review: A Year of Tears: Learning To Trust And Accept Love Again by Nikki Knight

A Year of Tears: Learning To Trust And Accept Love Again
By Nikki Knight
Publisher: Nikki Knight Creative
Published: Dec. 3, 2007

Amazon Synopsis:

Not quite poetry, nearly a journal, and as real as it is fiction, A Year of Tears is a short story that offers a glimpse into the mind of a nameless female character with a wounded heart. It is unknown, even from the author's perspective, what this woman has endured--possibly an abusive relationship, the loss of a loved one, or lifelong, pervasive feelings of inadequacy. What is certain is that the woman is afraid to trust, begin new relationships and open her heart again. 

Presented somewhat like a diary, the inner monologue of this timid soul tells the emotional tale of her journey 
throughout the seasons--a journey toward trust and the possibility of a new romance. Follow along step by step as she learns to overcome her trust issues and let love in again. She finds that the lesson is more about the healing and less about the hurting, and that each new day has led to a beautiful and happy new year.

My Thoughts:

This short story, written as a journal over the course of a year is the emotional journey of a woman (it could be any one of us) who has suffered. What the woman has suffered is unknown. It could be divorce, widowhood, abuse, or some kind of betrayal, but she is obviously in pain and finding it difficult to trust and love.

Her journey is poignant and will touch you because at some point in your life part of her story will be your story as sorrow touches your life. The beautiful thing about it is to see that out of the ashes of sorrow and pain grows the ability to trust and open her heart to new relationships and love.

This book will inspire you to hope for better days when things seem bleak. It will encourage you to keep putting one foot in front of the other and keep carrying on to better days ahead.

I gave A Year of Tears 4 stars out of 5. It was like watching the blossoms begin to burst in bloom on the cherry trees.

Thank you to the author who provided a copy of the book in exchange for a fair and honest review. A positive opinion was not required. All thoughts are my own.
