Konflikte zwischen den Generationen
Sonntags fehlst du am meisten: Roman - C... Sonntags fehlst du am meisten: Roman - Christine Drews

Bei der Goldenen Hochzeit der Eltern soll sich Caro mit ihrem Vater aussöhnen. Vor über einem Jahr ist der Kontakt zwischen den beiden abgebrochen. Nach einer Trunkenheitsfahrt, bei der Caro glücklicherweise nichts passiert ist, ist Papas "Prinzessin" in Ungnade gefallen. Karl hat auch jegliche finanzielle Unterstützung für seine Tochter eingestellt. Nun ist die wohlbehütete Caro gezwungen, auf komplett eigenen Beinen zu stehen. Doch das ist einfacher gesagt als getan. Sie muss nach dem Scheitern ihrer Ehe als Alleinerziehende für ihren Sohn sorgen, ist arbeitslos und trockene Alkoholikerin. Eine ungewöhnliche Freundschaft eröffnet ihr jedoch neue Sichtweisen. Ob die Annäherung an ihren Vater noch gelingt?

Meine Meinung:
Den Schreibstil habe ich als angenehm empfunden. Dabei ist es gelungen, die Gefühle der Protagonisten nachvollziehbar zu machen. Gut konnte ich mich in die Figuren hineinversetzen. Verbunden wird der lockere Erzählstil mit durchaus tiefgründigen Themen, sodass das Buch nicht nur unterhält, sondern auch zum Nachdenken anregt. Deutlich werden Konflikte zwischen den Generationen, die sich so auch in anderen Familien finden lassen. Gleichzeitig werden diese angenehm unaufgeregt geschildert.
Mir hat es auch gut gefallen, dass die Geschichte aus mehreren Perspektiven erzählt wird und verschiedene Zeitebenen beinhaltet. Immer wieder gibt es Rückblenden in die Vergangenheit. Das hat dazu beigetragen, dass keine Langeweile aufkam. Den Lesefluss hat es nicht gestört. Im Gegenteil: Ich konnte das Buch schwer zur Seite legen und hätte am liebsten alles an einem Tag durchgelesen.
Am Ende blieben leider noch ein paar Fragen offen, zu denen ich gerne Antworten erhalten hätte. Daher ziehe ich einen Stern ab. Davon abgesehen, fand ich den Roman sehr gelungen.

Fazit:
Wer ein Buch sucht, das sich leicht lesen lässt, aber dennoch über Tiefgang verfügt und nachdenklich macht, wird bei „Sonntags fehlst du am meisten“ fündig. Ich kann den Roman empfehlen.

Interview with Christine Cutajar Artist of Art of 4 Elements
Art of 4 Elements - Nataša Pantović Nuit

Art of 4 Elements: Discover Alchemy through Poetry (Alchemy of Love Mindfulness Training Book #1)

The Art of 4 Elements is a Spiritual Poetry and Art  published by Artof4elements.

Art of 4 elements spiritual poem by Natasa Pantovic Nuit about Spiritual Evolution

The poetry, written by Nuit, acted as an inspiration for the work of other artists. The  represents the element of Earth, that is the Mother of all we know and experience, that within its womb carries Spirit going forth into the magic of manifestation. Jason's paintings represent the element of Air, that has no shape and is incapable of a fixed form. It is a symbol of thoughts. Christine's element is Fire that is boundless and invisible, and is a parching heat that consumes all. Within its highest manifestation Fire becomes Divine Love. Jeni's element is Water that carries within: a Rhythm of Creation, and a strength of Tantric flow. Water symbolizes the world of emotions.

I must watch this author
Sacred Stones of Ireland - Christine Zuc... Sacred Stones of Ireland - Christine Zucchelli

Another excellent read alongside the book on Irish Trees, books I must buy for my own library as they're useful travel guides to the unusual to be found in Ireland, stones that have been associated with myth and legend and unusual goings on abound in Ireland.

 

I do know that there were a few ogham stones removed from places (including my home place) by overzealous Victorians and brought to museums because the people of that place didn't value them enough or hadn't been educated on what was interesting about those stones, disconnecting them from the heritage they once had and the stories that some others may have had about them.

 

Unlike many similar books of the past the author is quite respectful of non-christian religions, both modern and ancient.

Sweet Christmas Kisses 4: A Bundle of 14 Wholesome Holiday Romances - Mona Risk,Josie Riviera,Beate Boeker,Christine Bush,Lyn Cote,Denise Devine,Raine English,Jean C. Gordon,Shanna Hatfield,Milou Koenings,Roxanne Rustand,Magdalena Scott,Kristin Wallace,Merrillee Whren

he Gift of Yesterday by Milou Koenings part of Sweet Chistmas Kisses 4
Book starts out with Bailey and she moving forward with her life and career after all the living relatives have passed away and left her much in the way of inheritance.
She moves back to Green Pines where she grew up with Joe 15 years earlier. Each chapter alternates with Bailey and Joe as life goes on in the town.
An old fashioned fair during the fall months excites her so she can get the word out she's open for business. She also meets others in town that help her and she's able to solicit her pastries to the local diner who wants to sell them.
She recalls the Larsons who are in the ministry and she hopes to get together with them and maybe Annie who's in Africa (from a previous book). The woman who answers the door gives her information about the Larsons and sets it back...
Love how strong and so sure of herself as she sets out to prove she can do the shop and make a go of it. Carnival time in town and so much activity going on, can't even imagine the smells from the place!
She fits in as her food is used to help many who need the goods. Friends are trying to set Joe up with females and they aren't having any luck...such fond memories of when they grew up and the things they did-very similar to our childhood.
Some twists and turns along the way. Easy going holiday read, light romance, loved it!
Other works by the author are highlighted at the end along with reviews from her other works.
Received this review copy from the author and this is my honest review.

Hard Breaker: A Beauty and Beast Novel (Gargoyles Series) - Christine Warren

The final battle has arrived. The seven major demons are ready to take their place in the world. And the only thing standing in their way are the seven Guardians and their mates. This installment doesn't just bring us the next couple but one major bomb is dropped that the Guardians' seventh brother is already on earth and has been from the very beginning. This one though focuses on Baen and Ivy. Ivy has been doing her part in this war in England where she helps the underground resistance to smuggle out Wardens and hide them from the Order. She can handle herself just fine but when a Guardian swoops in to save her she can't help but eye him as some delicious side of hotness. What she can't abide by though is losing her independence and doesn't like that Fate has said that they will end up together. While Baen tries to win over his mate's doubts and alleviates her fears, he also has his hands full saving her from one attack or another. The whole gang comes back together in Paris where they will stage their final stand and stop Armageddon. This one had all of the fun tongue-in-cheek humor that we have come to enjoy from Christine Warren's gargoyles and their outspoken mates. It was a fun ride filled from beginning to end with action and adventure and the ride was fun to go along with. Their passion and the scene where they confess their love is so beautifully written. Loved Baen's declaration and he handled it perfectly. Loved it. I do hope though that there might be one more book in the series about the last Guardian and his mate that we just very briefly met in this one.
