There is a Golden Oldies song out there called, "What Becomes of the Broken Hearted?" It is also commonly known that when when people are faced with extreme trauma, children in particular, they will withdraw into themselves. Some to the point of withdrawing into a make believe world.

What if it wasn't make believe? What if some people, under just the right conditions, could gain access to a magical realm where you could create their own rules? Their own little "Pocket" of reality where they were

This is a highly imaginative story that lovers of fantasy will enjoy. The fact that its main characters are adults is another plus, as it lends itself to both adult readers and YA readers alike. I was thinking, before I began, that it would solely be a YA/MG read, but I was very wrong, and glad to note it! As an adult, I sometimes feel that there aren’t enough clean fantasy adult novels out there that I want to read, but Yetzirah is exactly what I was looking for! Full of magic, an alte

I received "Yetzirah: The Pocket Worlds The Butterfly" by Pam Bainbridge-Cowan from the Goodreads giveaways contests. It has been said that people read books to escape the reality of their everyday lives, and that concept it acceptable to me.

This is the best book ever. It is well written, the characters are likable (when they should be) and the story is easy to follow. Its kind of like Wizard of Oz meets Cinderella. I loved reading this. The world the author creates is amazing. I would not be ashamed to admit that I may have laid down and tried to find the door. The world completely grabs the imagination and draws you in. I love the idea of different pockets that can be made as we wanted.

The characters in this book are so varied it

A truly delightful, magical story that appeals to young and old alike. Bainbridge-Cowan has
created a wonderful world that is so vivid you will want to go there too. Her characters
are real, with real problems, hopes and fears. A modern day "Wizard of Oz" that will
touch even the coldest heart. It is a definite must read!
