Reinhabiting the Village: Cocreating Our FutureReinhabiting the Village: Cocreating Our Future by Davin Skonberg
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A century ago, we saw the climate change, fresh water supplies, and other resources depleted. The good news: poverty is on the decline and life expectancies are up. Though these are gains–better health, longer life, and prosperity of our growing population–they all could be gone very quickly, if we are not careful about how we treat the environment and use resources to sustain long, healthy life on the planet.

As frightening as life sometimes seems, “ReInhabiting the Village” offers hope. The driving idea behind the book is to show how we can heal the planet through working together in eco-friendly villages. Hearing the word village may sound stone age-ish, and seem as though the authors are trying to take us back to a time that had its own host of problems for survival–a time some people wish not to return.

On the contrary, Jamaica Stevens and the 62 contributing authors in this book demonstrate how we incorporate some of the old with the new to create a better future for all people. The book focuses on particular aspects such as, “getting down in the dirt” to grow your own food; reducing air pollution to improve diets; and encouraging sustainable practices, thus making communities good and safe for both the environment and human health.

“ReInhabiting the Village” is definitely a must read. I believe you’ll enjoy the book, and in the end, you’ll grasp the concept of organic living in all its forms and start to make it your way of life and contribution to saving the Earth.

That One Voice by Kai Storm
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Author Kai Storm is turning up the heat in urban genre. She's the author of Alani's Bigger Hustle, Alani's Hustle Gets Bigger, and that One Voice. I had the pleasure of reading That One Voice. The story is relatable for many young girls striking out on their own to brave a big world filled with a dream. The book offers realism and imagery that triggers the imagination in ways I've never known. Jennifer and David's romantic lover affair is intriguing.

Jennifer tends to wait for good things to come to her. She wants it all and want it to fall into her lap. This page-turner will have you questioning whether or not she will recognize what she wants when she sees it. Will she stand up for it and claim it? What about the time and effort it takes to get what she wants? Will she appreciate what she gets, if it falls into her lap?

David is the kind of guy who knows exactly what he wants, which is why he's so successful, and an encounter with Jennifer is just what he wants. For him it's a fresh experience, and he's eager to indulge uncharted territory. He's never caught off guard because he's worked out the rules of the game in advance and won't pass up an erotic opportunity. But like every man who becomes too confident, he has to learn a thing or two about the snowflake effect ... the power of a woman's sensuality.

That One Voice does not disappoint!

I Am Yours by Aja
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

“I Am Yours” by Aja starts with a sex scene before you even get to know who the woman in the book is or what, if you get my drift. I quickly become extremely frustrated with the character’s back-and-forth behavior. Amara’s actions tell me she’s a runner and the makings of a seemingly predictable storyline. To make sure the reader doesn’t run the author cleverly pulls a switcheroo by making her an unwilling party. You wonder if the author wants you to know it’s her hero in the story she has to convince to stay or leave.

As crazy as Amara drives you, she starts to grow on you even though she clearly takes things too far. But you start to understand her after awhile even if you don’t like her approach to love. Her reluctance to get with Noah, a man you can feel how deep he is into her heart, goes from a borderline romantic comedy to a nail-biting cliffhanger.

The author showcases her writing skills and style by telling the story the way her character wants it written, frustration and all. For example, when Amara reaches out to Noah in Chapter One you’re not sure of what she wants from him or if it’s just a business call for her. You get the feeling that she doesn’t know at the time that the call really is for him.

As the story unfolds you start to sympathize with her and understand the reason for all her emotional issues. At the same time it becomes crystal clear that Amara’s heart is going to come back to Noah, and it all happens with a call. It becomes the turning point when she realizes her need. Poor Noah has had his heart broken many times messing around with Amara. But his pain teaches him something about himself that you see later on as the story develops.

Then there’s Keith (i.e.; her safety net, her comfort and “maintenance” man.) You find yourself wondering if you want her to end that empty relationship or keep it going. But after the car incident, the “I’m breaking up with you” dinner, and the lackluster chance at intimacy all make clear where things are going between these two. Now Amara’s has the dilemma of ending the relationship without causing any more damage than she already has to another heart. On the other hand, Keith knows she’s not that into him and should end it himself.

The thing I like most about Graves’s book, and I think other readers like you will too, is that the story is no typical romance novel. I don’t know if the author set out to write something different, but the appeal to me is that she tells the tale of love from a perspective like none I’ve ever read. Even when things get messy her protagonist prevails in the most difficult situations you can imagine.

Aja is refreshing, and she offers the same in “I Am Yours.” I strongly believe that readers will find the story very satisfying! It’s a definite must read!

Miracles Are Made: A Real-Life Guide to AutismMiracles Are Made: A Real-Life Guide to Autism by Lynette Louise
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Miracles Are Made is the kind of story that comes at us with charm and sophistication in an open, honest discussion in a real-life guide to autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Lynette describes this complex neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by impaired reciprocal social interaction and impaired communication offering real solutions.

The author presents a well-informed illustration of behaviorally defined disorders associated with characteristic cognitive, language, and behavior features of ASD. As a health professional, Lynette brings into focus the intense interest surrounding related conditions in the autism spectrum such as the increase in the number of children with the neurodevelopmental disorders. She is highly qualified and has the cojones to speak her mind about what works and what doesn't with little to no pushback. She's well versed in pediatrics with a contemporary understanding of autism, including definitions, formal diagnostic approaches, medical evaluations, treatments, controversies, and caregiver support.

Like most readers, I was impressed at Lynette's many years of experience as a mother of children with ASD and her talks of raising eight amazing kids. She found treatments for four of her children who have varying degrees of ASD that continue to work and shared her findings with parents of children with autism around the world.

Motherhood requires a special talent, and the magic Lynette has created in Miracles Are Made is something to talk about after reading her compelling story. Caregivers will love that the book offers real promise for successful treatment without any false claims of "magical cures" that lead to hopelessness. My brains are still ebbing and flowing after this read. I highly recommend this gem!

The Physically Fit Messiah: Wellness Wisdom Past and Present by Cal Samra
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I found The Physically Fit Messiah interesting, inspiring, and fun to read! Reading a story about lifestyle choices for overall good health and a long life, can only lead to something that just feels right. Cal Samra is an octogenarian who plays tennis four times a week, eats a Mediterranean diet, and enjoys organic gardening.

The book is a compelling read about human behavior and habit as they relate to diet and health (i.e.; overeating, poorly eating, excessive drinking, smoking, physical inactivity, high sodium and processed food consumption, and the environment.) All of which that can wreak havoc on our health.

Samra collaborated with some big names in medical and religious fields to help him create this wholesome, spiritually centered story about clean living. He gives proven accounts of wellness in health care that dates as far back as early Greek Christian physicians; physicians then and now who encourage a healthy diet and exercise.

I enjoyed the humor the author used to enhance the story. I got a kick out of the 15 exercises to avoid. My only issue with the book was, there wasn't enough empirical data to support how genetics and natural causes beyond anyone's control play a part in our health. But it addressed other concerns in depth like man-made "agents of death" and their effect to our environment. A sigh of relief comes when the author stresses the importance of prayer, faith, love, and good relationships with Christ, family, friends and pets for illnesses medication can't heal.

If you pooh-pooh the wisdom of our elders and have little regard for history, this book may not be for you. If you believe you can garner motivation to live longer and at the same time promote in others a healthier lifestyle, this book is a gem for keeps! I definitely recommend this read!
