This is so far removed from anything that is out there right now in terms of its ethereal approach to faith, love, and life.

The author[s] have created a rather vivid and beautiful collection of poems, short stories, and riddles which capture the imagination well.
I geunienly did not want the book to end.
I felt for a couple of days I had left reality and entered a wonderful fantasy fairy land that captures the heart of God.

The messages contained within each poem or story is a clear and deep reflec

((I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review))

Let me start by saying that I give this book 5/5 stars. I loved it. It was a very endearing and satisfying read. There was nothing about this book that I didn't like. I'm not even sure where to begin, my mind is swarming around like a bunch of buzzing bees!

The book has a lot of personality. It's very outside the box and quirky and just fantastic. What do I mean by outside of the box? For each poem and short story in this bo

I don't like poetry. Never have. Most poems I've read have used so many literary devices that the reader can't understand even a speck of what the author was "trying to convey."
But this.... oh yes.. this collection was good. Very good. And for once, I actually understood what the author is trying to say!

Rawls and Rawls use symbols and metaphors for the understanding of the story/poem's premise, content, and overall spiritual significance. That's exactly what I look for in almost every fiction wo

Do you enjoy being challenged and inspired by stories that are written in such a way as to evoke deep emotion, and bring new ideas to light? When stories closely reflect snapshots of life, they often speak to our hearts - especially if the emotion woven into the story reminds us of our own struggles, or disappointments, or joys. Today, one of the often-overlooked modes of storytelling is poetry, which the dictionary defines as ‘a literary work in which special intensity is given to the expressio ...more

Bleeding Heart is a show of creativity. Filled with beautiful worlds of Elves, Fairies, Dragons, Puppets and more, this book let me into worlds I wish I could experience for myself. For now, I'll stick to experiencing them on the page.

This author is super creative and the poems and stories touch deep feelings. The riddles are clever, and the Hump Day poems put a smile on my face.

Many poems and stories are influenced by the author's experiences in Europe, creating vivid settings.

Elizabeth Rawls and her mother, Rachel Rawls, have compiled poems, short stories and even riddles into this volume that will encourage, inspire and comfort. They explore life, with its variety of grief, humor, beauty and sadness. More than that, they dive into faith and purpose at the heart of life.

This is a volume you will want to return to often. Many of these poems are not a one-time read; they're meant to be fellowshipped with, like a dear old friend.
