LaDonna Cook Five Star Review Lessons: Shattered Pieces Being Restored
Empowerment Through Lessons

Lessons went above and beyond my expectations. The poetry takes you through different stages of struggles with hurts, self-love, attention, depression, anger and relationships and flows into healing and overcoming. The intricate nuggets within Chantel, Casey and Mandy's story's truly drove the message of the poetess home by allowing us to equate her words with relate-able characters that truly resonate within. You can see yourself, whether past or present, in each story and each poem. In today's society, a book of this magnitude is needed as guidance for so many young women and to help heal older women. This book is empowering and allows you to delve within yourself and ask the tough questions so that you can be placed on path to a better, healthier, happier life.

LaDonna Cook 5 Star Review for Until Tomorrow Comes
I've actually had the chance to meet LaDonna in person (before I knew she was a writer). Immediately I knew that she was intelligent, smart, and full of life; just like her book. In a way, the poems take you on a journey in life dealing with love, the secret part of you, loss/hurt, encouragement, and building back up. Everyone can relate each poem to some aspect of their lives (even the female ones). I'm looking forward to her next book!
