This story takes you on a journey through Neala's life and her joy and pain that she endured as a course of moving through life.

I was drawn to the story and Neala's experiences. The beginning seems innocuous enough, but as we move further into the book we realize that perhaps Neala isn't totally grounded in reality.  Or perhaps there is more to the story than even she knows. I am still not really sure if Neala is delusional or if she truly is of another world and a being called a spryling.  As I

I received a copy of Limbo Jubilee book from the author in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are, of course, my own.

To try to sum up Limbo Jubilee would be impossible. And, that’s not a bad thing at all. Soleil has a way with words that makes you sit back and think “Damn, I wish I could write like this.”

This novella is not only beautifully written, but it’s incredibly unique. Written as a fictional memoir based on Neala’s life, loss, love, mental illness, attachment, abandonment, and
